Description The song’s lyrics are selected verses from a poem by Sandy Pearlman called “The Soft Doctrines of Imaginos”. In “Astronomy”, the character of Imaginos comes to realize his heritage and his role as the altered human. References are made to celestial objects throughout the song: “The light that never warms” being the moon, “The Queenly flux” the constellation Cassiopeia, “My dog, fixed and consequent” being Sirius, the dog star. The “Four Winds Bar” may be a reference to the Tropic of Cancer. All in all, it has Imaginos explaining his position as part of Les Invisibles.
