FLOATER

 

I’m drifting through a maze of darkness

And winding down on life support

I’m going into hibernation mode

And floating to a distant star

 

The mothership is going home

I’m going somewhere I don’t know

And when I get there you’ll be alone

 

You’re waving from just inside the light cone

From the boundary of space and time

You’re hoping that I find a new world

Where I don’t have to fight the stall

 

The mothership is going home

You’re going back to what you know

And when you get there I’ll be long gone

 

And now I’m a billion miles from Earth

Fading into the cosmic background noise

I’m just a pale blue dot in your sky

Sailing across a great divide

 

The mother ship is going home

I’m going somewhere beyond it all

To be an alien on another globe.
