Here's the lyrics (Or what they sound like...):

(Verse 1)
We rode all night across an endless desert
We had no moon to light our way
And though a million stars are slowly turning
we lack of consciences to pray

Our horses running like a devil chased us
those feet they hardly touch the ground
Yes I'm familiar with the gray wolves howlin',
but I'm certain I never heard that sound

Devil to pay
on judgement day
Would Jesus strike me down
If I should pray

This cowboy song
is all I know
to bring me back into your arms
Your distant sun
your shining light
you'll be my dark star shining tonight

(Verse 2)
I've been the lowest of the low on the planet
I've been a sinner all my days
When I was living with my hand on the trigger
I had no sense to change my ways

The preacher asked if I embraced the resurrection
to suck the poison from my life
Just like an existential cowboy villain
his words were balanced on my knife


(Bridge-type thing)
In the night
In the night
All my distances are far


(Organ Solo)

Dark star
Dark Star
Dark Star
Dark Star
Dark Star...
