What type of literary device is this lyric, if it even is one: "Don't lose who you are in the blur of the stars"?

Just looks like lyrics someone wrote for a song to me.

It's metaphorical because the lyrics are saying that 'who you are [might be] lost in the blur  of the stars'.  You can't literally be 'lost in the blur of the stars,' so it's means something else: The busyness of everyday life or something similar.

Interesting question.

I have no interest in the creative side of English composition, so I don't know enough to actually answer and I am not interested in learning enough to try to answer.
