lyrics

Trading in all of the green & blue for blackness
All alone, all of the cities start to lose their glow

Frozen stiff, my black orb hangs in vastness
Living for a long dinner & a short dance

The way that you'll be
The way I am now
The way my speck gets smaller, smaller & smaller still

Play & replay the grainy clips in disarray
Trying to keep a disappearing face & a voice alive

Up here alone , I feel my wrinkles stretching longer
& down below, she stays suspended in a smooth young glow
Blue & green come into focus much more slowly
The sudden heat, feeling the earth beneath my feet
& don't you know, it doesn't feel a thing like home
& all is lost, back in the blackness is where I belong

Play & replay the grainy clips in disarray
Trying to keep a disappearing face & a voice alive
