Some star may be my home in years to come
A place where I withdraw to contemplate
The weariness of life and death and life
The brilliant cycles of eternity
But for today my home is here and now
This place where future lives are just a dream
A place where people’s eyes are blank and dull
And glazed by drugs or contemplating life
No star today is close enough to hope
That some small craft can take me safely there
And so I’ll stay here in the dullard’s realm
And watch the walking dead give in to life
Like them I’ll stare up at the darkened sky
And wonder when the stars will shine again
