Alone, awash in red and gold
Cabin lights all burn and glow and pulsify
Radars sweep and map the sky

We fly into approaching suns
Our destinies have just begun to billow out
Scattering the frozen dust

Refracts into a thousand lights
Silver pricks of bronze and white
Hang frozen in time, guiding us away

Fly home, you are a mother’s son
The radio, it beats and drums a mournful cry
Pushing ever faster out

We burn until the fuel is gone
We have no choice, we must belong to energy
To earth and stone and steel and bone

We thread through a thousand years
A moment’s breath between the tears
Of beautiful bliss and nothingness to come

We are more than our earthliness
The final breath before the kiss
We are passion and light and leaving before our time

Ride on fellow grieving one
Lungs will burn, hearts overcome the beggar’s doubt
To search among the stars and clouds

We fall from such amazing heights
Push the bounds of men and might
We float before we fly
We believe or we die

We are more than our earthliness
The final breath before the kiss
We are passion and light and leaving before our time

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.
