lyrics

I am under the impression
that time moves in just one direction
I can see dead stars in action
and nothing breaks black hole’s attraction

Life is an island in a great blue ocean
under atmosphere; don’t fear the sun’s embrace
In a solar system of rotating orbs
Three of ours could fit in the gas giant’s storm

In between two spiraling arms
of hundreds of billions of stars
I’m in awe

I am over the expression
that space is all in three dimensions
I cannot see what strings connect us
but light waves ripple out to protect and detect us

Always searching for the perfect sphere
Always wondering why we go in circles
Always yearning for a purpose here

Life is an island in a deep blue ocean
under an atmosphere; don’t fear the sun’s embrace

I am under the impression
I am over the expression
I am onto you
