Sean just wrote a song. hitRECord is going to collaboratively orchestrate it and turn it into a short film. But for now, let's just listen to this beautiful music.

lyrics by Sean Lennon and Charlotte Muhl

Every night the auburn Sun
Tucks in her children one by one
Beaming with pride slips from the sky
With moons and stars left for night lights

Under her skirt her closest child
Bright mercurial and wild
He's hot headed with iron heart
Here her twilight orbit starts

Venus reclines upon her shell
Her gown of clouds does suit her well
A true actress this narcissist
Out shines all the other starlets

Mars is clad in spartan red
He glares at his kindred planets
Don't double cross him or his path
Lest you stir his chilling wrath

Near by the insomniac lies
Their big brother Jupiter sighs
Sleeping with one open eye
Blood shot from all the years gone by

His sister is so saturnine
Her moods rings changing all the time
"Why the long face?" her mother pries
"Because my core is made of ice"

The old windbag Uranus coughs (cough)
"He's so dim-witted!" they all scoff
Once mistaken for a star
This lazy bones is no quasar

In shadows stalking everyone
Pluto's the illegitimate son
Of the litter he's the runt
This black sheep is on the run

Hear the music of the spheres
The ticking of the cosmic gears
I'll sing a nebulullaby
As we twirl across the sky

Startled by a mortal cry
The Sun suddenly realized
Earth disowned for her hubbub
At least gave birth to human love
