about

Born Of Stars by Alchemeon, from Alchemeon Live In Session Winter 2008-09.

The audio file for this song was plagued with hundreds, maybe thousands, of corrupted waves. These ranged in sound from a very big click at the small end of the scale, to something akin to trousers being ripped when bending over in a Carry On movie at the large end of the scale.

The audio file is now massively better than it was. A few blemishes and some sounds not unlike that of a scratchy old vinyl record still exist in places.

Repairing the damaged audio file for this song was an incredibly time-consuming and tedious task. It required massive amounts of the wave forms to be redrawn by hand in tiny, tiny detail.

The first time we attempted to repair it, the work was almost finished when the main hard drive on the mastering machine lost the will to live and mangled itself beyond all recognition. We had to buy a new one and completely reinstall the entire system.

All the repair work we had already done to Born of Stars was therefore utterly destroyed. It had to be done again from the start. Fortunately, as we are reasonably diligent with regard to backing up our work, not even one other file was lost.

This is why the Winter version of Born of Stars appeared two years after the rest of the album was released!

* Born of Stars is a highly rifftastic space rock song in the key of E.
* Several sections are deliberately left quite loose to allow for improvisation.
* The lyrics also tend to vary from one version to another.
* We have transcribed the correct lyrics for both the Winter and Spring versions on their separate pages, which differ from each other slightly in places.
* Born of Stars was performed by the Spacegoats, including in their brief “Electric Elves” manifestation.

lyrics

BORN OF STARS
We are born of stars
We are born of stars
We are born of stars
We are born of stars

Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya
Gaia

We are seeds of time
We are seeds of time
You are a seed of time
We are seeds of time

Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya
Gaia

Create a brighter future
Create a brighter future
We are a brighter future
Create a brighter future

Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya
Gaia

Earth
Planet Earth
Planet Earth
Our planet
Terra Firma
Has made a conscious decision
A conscious, conscious decision
To become whole
To become one.

Entombed, cocooned
In concrete, metal, plastic, tarmac
Effluence of all kinds
Chemicals, radiation and nuclear waste

Yet she shall break free
She shall break free from this prison
Free from these chains

Planet Earth is undergoing
An evolutionary, interpersonal, galactical
REBIRTH!!!

We are born of stars
We are born of stars
We are born of stars
We are born of stars

Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya

We are seeds of time
We are seeds of time
You are a seed of time
We are seeds of… time!

Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya
Gaia

Create a brighter future
Create a brighter future
You are a brighter future
Create a brighter future

Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya maitraya
Om nam maya
Gaia
