I was trying to make sense of some of the lyrics from new songs by The Killers. In particular, I was puzzling through the relationships established by the chorus of their latest single.

Starmaker says “It ain’t so bad”
‘s gonna make you mad
says “Everybody look down; it’s all in your mind.”

So here is the most immediate, literal interpretation that occurred to me. I figured Dreammaker’s being a jerk and Starmaker and Spaceman are dealing with it in different ways. At first I considered having them messing with tiny people, since they are mostly larger than life, but was getting stuck on a plausible annoying thing Dreammaker could do. Hence the dream dust.

I do like that this ended up as a mix of video game, comic, and music characters.
