lyrics

Holding on to a single thread of starlight
And it’s slipping through my hands
And without oxygen I’ve got a little over fifteen minutes left to
Sit back, wave hi, and sigh
And say all my goodbyes
Gaze into the night and sigh
And let go as the darkness catches me
Oh I’m alive but not for long

I bet you think
That it’s all your fault even though you didn’t do a thing
But this is how things go
When you’re living in deep space
You can’t trust the stars in this sector
They keep their secrets close
And I am a victim, a martyr
Of making sure things go well
But they won’t I know
Cause I’m stuck out here
The coiled snake of tubing tripped me out of the airlock
And I went flying away
Away away away

CHORUS
Don’t come after me
I won’t make it halfway
It will set you free if you never look back
And out here in the void
I can hear the call of the ones beyond the ring
Around the black hole
So save yourself
I’d like to stay
I’d like to stay

I can see you through the porthole on the side of the ship
And you are singing
As you’re gearing up to reach into the dark and save me
From the outerworld remnants and high tides
I shimmer in the night
But you cannot hear me as I scream
For you to go back inside
Cause the radiation’s coming I can see it
And we’ll both get caught in the storm
In the storm

CHORUS

But if you stay we’ll see the glow
And feel the pull of the black hole
And you can hold my hand through my glove
And we’ll see the light
And it’s all so bright
