Open up the station airlock
As we spin above this blue rock
Spit your heart up, watch it drift out
Astronaut, I’m bored


Dive into the ocean darkness
Down so deep the sharks are left breathless
Cough your lungs out, watch them float up
Smile through the gore


This is the day I begin again
Open down the throttle’s throat
My hands these moonlit lacerations
Pious pull of gravity

The flames lick up your sunglasses
Bones puppet in the shudder
The bite of dark runs through you
All the ground is burned away

And I float
Exploded time
My face
An icy grin

Words are air and nothing more
Tears are salt and nothing more
Songs are noise and nothing more
You are flesh and nothing

Let me
Let me
Let me

Life under the starlight
Had enough I’ll take flight
Life under the starlight
Had enough I’ll take flight
