lyrics

Was humming over some moonless black
When old reservations came flocking back.
I saw three pillars that would come crumbling down
In some small venture you'd run into the ground.
I saw reflected with light from the display
My head there hanging as if by noose or chain.
And in this stupor, it came, some broken thing,
Five hundred miles per hour into the wing.

Glows the cluster of city lights in the oblivion.
Drops the needle altimeter to say the time has come.
Beats the heart that I'm hearing now, it could be anyone.

Two gelid planets looked down like porcine eyes
In through my window, and into my mind.
And all those questions I took with truth and pain;
All human wonder and thought went down the drain.

See the green of the kitchen chair–the navigation light.
Hear the creak of the fuselage, I hear our daughter cry.
Floating into the sea of dark, all of the echoes die.
