lyrics

<New Houston, I’m approaching the outer rim. I will be out of direct com range soon, and engaging hibernation.  All systems are clear. Mission is a go. Newton-8 over and out. >

<Roger that Newton-8. Phase 2 is a go. Godspeed. >

Awake… out among the stars…
Where... no one else has been...

We… have traveled from afar…
Now… our task… begins...

Starlight closing
Departing from all that is known

Father goodbye
Sacrifice made for all mankind

Signal Fading
Lightyears of distance we have flown

Human experience
Will overcome the grand design

Disappeared
the last three probes
and here we are
following

Volunteered
heart and soul
through the darkness
flying

Determined to persevere
sailing towards our last hope
collapsed star
lies waiting

Yet unclear
we don’t know
if we’ll be drawn apart
spaghettified
atoms wide
or pass into the
unknown
Entering, the Double Helix Nebula

Subspace
Slip drive
Starting
Countdown
Five
Four
Three
Two
One

The tendrils of Light beckon me closer
Dancing visions of radiant fantasy
Stardust forms the guiding beacon
To the throne room of the idiot god

The center calls us forth
To Nathan and Albert's Bridge
A path to being reborn
If that's, what it really is...

The model is sound
We will be allowed
...to pass.

Even if I die
It’s better this way
I had to leave
Couldn’t stay,
I must get...
...away

Behold a fool, running from his problems,
Bearing away his pain into the barren void of
Space!
...and the Challenger Deep, of the Milky Way.

Elevated Vitals, do not
Despair
Fulfilling our purpose, we are nearly
there.
or, are,
we?

But nothing was ever, quite so simple,
Nothing gained, without the venture.

But this one saw fit, to playing at, being the hero
and cast himself, into the leading role,
hurtling through the cosmos, towards the
Deepest, Darkest, Bleakest, Blackest, hole.


Detecting
Hawking Radiation
Proceed
With Caution.

Mentally preparing to enter a heart of darkness
<a heart of darkness >
Forming the Will to, pave the way
<I will show us the way>
If the last of our ambitions, fade with the light
<A blueshifted sea>
At least we dared to sail, the empty sea of night
<What will become of me?>

Gliding around an accretion disk
Composed of stars long since dead
Diving into a black abyss
Not knowing what lies...
Ahead!

Ripped apart, at the seams
Excruciating existence petrified!

Violent Gamma, particle beams
Cellular Matter becomes Ionised!

Covalent structure returning to form
Consciousness becoming realised.

Where are we now?
Told of a world,
...of vibrant green.
…sight unseen
Where life decays, fades away
Such as I am here today
Falling down
Towards my
Certain demise
Powerless
Dying alone in this emptiness

A hopeful light flickers…
...across the screen.

System rebooted, scan underway!

Do I have power again?

Error report, damaged array!

I feel the darkness surrounding

Repair function will not engage!

My head, and heart are pounding….

Ego corroding, please end the
Pain!

Turned around
Course Revised
No controls
Please Advise

Damage Sustained, return to base.
Going back the way we came.
Remain calm, we shall proceed.
Return yourself to hypersleep.

Can’t turn back
Won’t survive
Shields will fail
Vaporised.

No choice now,
<Please stand by>
Shut it down,
<Can’t comply>
We’ll burn to death
<Fate unknown>
Nothing left
<Going home>

Access denied
Options limited
Death looming
Pull the plug and float into the void!

Life support disengaged.
Oxygen begins to fade
Controls Dead
Sanity is frayed

Everything here an echo of my past
Each reflection becoming a little worse.
Entropy, shall claim me at last.
Futility, chapter and verse.
Hail science
Hail the endless void

Adrift and alone within the endless cold
of this celestial tomb
Closing my eyes, one last time,
to all I have to lose
Carried away,
my body mourned by none,
nameless to the abyss

Shapes
Bright
Light
