We rode beside the stars
Engines whined and screamed
Lost contact with the natives
Hurtled towards the seas
Of blackened midnight oil
And blinding fire fields
The silence of the distance
To horrid to reveal

I lost you in a moment
When everything felt right
Light years fell like ashes
Feathers of ghostly white
I turned to see your vessel
Swallowed into space
Abandoned in my anger
A grave amongst the waste

Now thirty years have gone
And I haven’t aged a day
I push the orbit harder
Throw elbows at the fray
I bleed for no man’s country
I know no place called home
I am doomed to walk the cages
And rattle locks with bones

Original rock and roll that feels strangely familiar and familiarly strange since 2006. Feel free to feel free. And remember, life goes on - until it don't.
