Phlebia - Liquid Starshine

He just smiles and walks away
She stares at static in a daze
The rhythm permeates the haze
It feels like we’ve been here for days

Electric arcing trace the sky
We gaze above your moonlit eyes
And the horizon shimmers
Black and green and red and yellow

There’s nothing left but dreams in here tonight
Got liquid starshine in my blood and it’s alright
One million photographs of multicolored lights
This liquid starshine it’s alright.

Clouds like glaciers clashing brightly
Fabric breathes fluorescent lighting
Melting soundwaves rip the broadband
Drain the Oppenheimer Ray-Bans

Confusion swinging dewdrop meadows
Paisley sheets and weeping willows
Rooftop rider spear the sunbeams
Orange, pink and dreaming

There’s nothing left but dreams in here tonight
Got liquid starshine in my blood and it’s alright
One million photographs of multicolored lights
Simple touch your eyes and see the signs

What to be…
Confronted spiral God…
Saturn’s prophecy...

Oh, so cold
your whispers of wisdom breeze by
No, not so
your shimmering skin won't deny

washed away the rain don't care
the sun's not reflected everywhere
all I know is you are mine
liquid starshine

So it goes
at least that's what they always sell you
but I know
an elixir that's slicker than true

washed away the rain don't care
the sun's not reflected everywhere
all I know is you are mine
liquid starshine

I feel incomplete until I'm coming back around
you're quenching the thirst that I always feel without
That's the conceit
I want another drink
when can we meet?
what do you think?

washed away the rain don't care
the sun's not reflected everywhere
all I know is you are mine
liquid starshine

We picture in our minds
Remember with our hearts
It all depends on life
Do you remember all the stars?
Can we be like that brilliant light?
Forever strong, or just for one night
Will I see you
Or reflections from the glassy surface of your perfection

Can you see me
Clearer than starlight in water
Let's get free
We could be purer than water

Your paddle dips into the water
The way that we drift
Somehow we thought
This could ever exist
For more than a moment
Before we change
The time was stolen
The stars remain

From down here there's nothing left to see
In my mind I have the memory
And the moon's a balloon flying

Can you see me
Clearer than starlight in water
Let's get free
We could be purer than water

Hot Pink Halo - The Double Twinkle


Our revolution chimes as we
Loop round the sky
With a magnetic force that
Brings forth our cry and our
Hearts beat together like
Hammers on strings as
We push and we pull and
You play and I sing

We pass by each other in
Orbits elliptical
As we circle the hall doing
The double twinkle

With grace and with strength our
Paths must divide and I
Wonder next time if
We will collide
We hurtle through space and we
Travel through time and our
Worlds will distort as we
Step to the line

We pass by each other in
Orbits elliptical
As we circle the hall doing
The double twinkle

The tension it builds as we
Sidestep the night and
Nobody can tell if we
Dance or we fight and our
Shapes shift and spill as we
Spin and shine bright and we
Move by each other with a
Violence of light and

We pass by each other in
Orbits elliptical
As we circle the hall doing
The double twinkle

We pass by each other in
Orbits elliptical
As we circle the hall doing
The double twinkle

Liquid Starshine - Tim Hinkle

Stars shine at night, so far away
One swings in close to light up the day
My equilibrium’s thrown straight to shit when that glow envelopes me
I need some starlight on the inside—honey, make me a cup of tea

Liquid starshine!
Flowing through my veins
I’m brought back online
by the light that leaves restrain
a crystalline derivative from fusion far away
adds sweetness to the chemicals that force fleeting light to stay

Cup after cup, it keeps me on my toes
From dawn’s first light through evening’s close
While the world’s awake around me I stoke the fire I’ve built inside
Before I sleep I fill a final mug and set it down by my bedside

A coffee’s nice once in a while
The smell alone always makes me smile
But with the sheer number of cups it takes to get me through the day
Those beans would blow my mind away and my soul’s edges fray

The stars shine in the sky at night
they shine inside me in the day.

Liquid Starshine (by Hoblit)

I used to drink liquid Sunshine
back before the day
you began to cast your love line
all over the bay

At all the dives and beach bars
I'd order up that ray
a little rum and our cigars
well I could drink all day

But it's time for a new drink
because now I'm feeling glum
maybe throw in some bitters
and a darker rum

Yeah, let's take out the peach shnopps
and lose all the juice
But I'm not feeling old fasioned
so grenadine by duece

and we'll call it starshine, liquid starshine

We used to drink liquid sunshine
soaking in that glow
But you hooked the whole coast line
and everywhere we'd go

From the cities to the beaches
harbors to the shore
You went from the drink of peaches
to the lousy house pour

But it's time for a new drink
because now I'm feeling glum
maybe throw in some bitters
and a darker rum

Yeah, let's take out that peach shnopps
and lose all the juice
But I'm not feeling old fasioned
so grenadine by duece

and we'll call it starshine, liquid starshine

I think God likes to get high
Make crazy shit and hit the pipe
'Cause there's no other way to explain
Why Mother Nature is so strange

Liquid starshine must have gone to his head
It's a wonder we're not all dead
Just take a look around
Look at all the crazy shit we've found
I bet God needs a cigarette

To make a duck this is all you do
Take a chicken and add a kazoo
I swear to God he must be drunk
How else can you explain a skunk?

Liquid starshine must have gone to his head
It's a wonder we're not all dead
Just take a look around
Look at all the crazy shit we've found
I bet God needs a cigarette

Liquid starshine must have gone to his head
It's a wonder we're not all dead
Just take a look around
Look at all the crazy shit we've found
I bet God needs a cigarette
Liquid starshine must have gone to his head

Liquid Starshine
left stardust on my suit
paramour of mine
she always wore her boots
there wasn't much time
she was quickly mostly nude
she was so shiny
I thought she was so cute

she's dancing with me
for one song turned three
her gyrating hips
were 30 plus tip
a five-minute dance
a greenback of Grant
she drove me insane
the glitter remains

Liquid Starshine
I see it on your shelf
just $8.99
you rub it all over yourself
you're now so sparkly
as if you needed help

I'm down on my luck
but I have some bucks
just one more session
the oldest profession
this here exchange
is not so strange
I'm content in the knowledge
I help you through college

I can't ignore the fact
there are so many other chaps
the twinkle in their eye
from Liquid Starshine

she's dancing with me
for one song turned three
her gyrating hips
were 30 plus tip
a five-minute dance
a greenback of Grant
she drove me insane
the glitter remains

Liquid Starshine
what am I to do?
Liquid Starshine
I'm so obsessed with you
Liquid Starshine
you imprinted on me
Liquid Starshine
you are so glittery

What are you doing after your shift?
Could I maybe give you a lift?

I woke with a start from my end of the world dream
When you woke with a start from your end of the world dream
Synchronised sighs, some low-key screaming
Then back to sleep for more dystopian dreaming

They’ve announced it on the news, “we regret to say that sadly
We must find another home, we’ve messed the Earth up badly”
No time for doom and gloom - we’re heading off quite soon
The nightclubs are always open on the dark side of the Moon

We’re running out of time
So let’s leave this world behind
Get fucked up on Liquid Starshine

Back home our recreation is restrained by regulations
But up here there is no limit on our self-annihilation
A little twist on Moonshine has the oddest reputation:
It takes the brain, subjects it to a little liquidation

We fled a dying world, our heaven orbits hell
and we’re forgetting our flaws as we kill off our brain cells
A barren new planet to fill with our mess
as we bludgen our consciences into unconsciousness

We’re running out of time
So let’s leave this world behind
Get fucked up on Liquid Starshine
We’re running out of time
So let’s leave this world behind
get fucked up on Liquid Starshine

Chthauhaus

She's got a single black rose in her rear view mirror.
A white tank top with glistening sweat.
She was a platinum blonde with a mischievous smile.
A single black rose in the rear view mirror.

She's one of a kind! She's Liquid Starshine!
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooooh!

She's got a single black rose in her rear view mirror.
An eclectic mix in the cassette deck.
She had the face of an angel a pale silhouette.
A single black rose in the rear view mirror.

She's one of a kind! She's Liquid Starshine!
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooooh ooh ooh!

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooooh!

Liquid Starshine
miscellaneous owl

My sister's lips gleam like the road after it rains
She smells like cotton candy
I ask her what it is, she hands me

A tube of liquid starshine
A tube of liquid starshine
A doefoot hangs in iridescence
Bonne Bell-brand luminescence

My sister lines her eyes with wings
As sharp and black as crows that fly
Above the path we take to school
Past the park where all the cool kids go
My sister spreads her wings
And flies into the sky with them
And I stare up into the light
And whisper, don't leave me behind,
Oh, sister, I'm trying to reach you

Instars between
My molded plastic body
And the lushness of her leaves
Will I ever be as pretty
As the sparkling streak
Her glassy lips leave
Upon the rim of her coffee cup
Diamond scratching talc
A scale for the distance of her look

My sister floats above the rooftops
In Converse All-Stars and Stila lip gloss,
And on the moon, I see her shape
Where the cinnamon tree casts endless shade

But she gave me liquid starshine
But she gave me liquid starshine
Doefoot dabs the heart that bells
Cotton candy drips and melts
On lips like liquid starshine
Lips like liquid starshine
Lips like liquid starshine
Lips like liquid starshine

Liquid Starshine
by Jerkatorium

Verse 1:

Got a handful of pills
And a Pop-Tart for food,
And it’s noon, so it’s okay to drink.
I’ll check in on you,
Then I’ll check out the tube, 
Then I think it’s time for me to check out too.

I’ll stop watching the evening news
And devote more time to the pills and booze,
Off the grid for a week or two
To devote more time to you.

Chorus:

Moonshine’s fine for Appalacia,
Prison’s fine for prison wine,
Bathtub gin can tend to age ya,
Liquid Starshine’s just divine.
Anesthesia plus aphasia,
Leave your worries far behind.
Welcome to the new Fantasia:
Liquid Starshine.

Verse 2:

Got a 5th in the drawer
And a 6 in the fridge,
And it’s 10, so it’s okay to drink.
I won’t quit my job,
I’ll just stop showing up
And wait here for the other shoe to drop.

I’ll stop paying off all these bills
And devote more time to the booze and pills,
Off the grid for a month or two
To devote more time to you.

[Chorus x1]

Bridge:

Liquid Starshine, turpentine and Bud Light
Liquid Starshine, PBR and formaldehyde

Verse 3:

Got a jug full of hooch
And a jar full of glue,
And I don't need permission to drink.
I’ll walk down the block
And I’ll pick out a spot,
Lie down and stay there till the sun comes up.

Stop caring what the future brings
And devote more time to the booze and things,
Off the grid for a year or two
To devote more time to you.

[Chorus x2]


:!: NOTE: Turpentine and formaldehyde are both toxic, if you drink either of them your internal organs will shut down and you will die, so do not drink them.

Liquid Sunshine - Paco del Stinko

I went to sleep on the floor
And when I got up I walked through the door

Open your eyes let the liquid starshine out
Do it again when you open your mouth

I watched your face turn to ash
And then you smiled like a Cheshire Cat

Open your eyes let the liquid starshine out

The dawn came and it brought tan curly haired drummers marching the same
I ran over the brickes and it did it again
We looked into the window to find an old friend but we only saw Judy
And we laughed like we were ten...like we were ten

Swim in it - Begin in it
Find you inner twin in it
Immersed in the rainbow
Bringin' the stink since 2006.
