There's some giddy, childish sensation The hope of a new generation
Faceless cameras war for my voice A flashing ocean of stomps and shoves Taken from me is my choice Given is a false sense of love They smile too wide to be true Contorted and stretched, like some plastic But they're all I have before the blue So deep breaths, and then come dramatics
People who pass me by Don't seem to realise The emptiness of the sky They just need to see me sign
They ask: Is it lonely up in space? Is it a cold, abandoned place? Is it bright amongst the stars? Do you know who you really are?
[Part the Second]
My life has faded to drunken thoughts Reality doesn't confirm what can't be bought
The multicoloured psychedelia Of nebula turning to rainbows Now looks more fake than ever And so my sanity goes There's a beast out there, lurking I'm not sure if it wants me But my hope is hiding, sulking From the abyss that can hear and see
The worst way to die is alone Where there's no one who can help me As my punishment destroys my home At least, from my memory
They screech: It's so lonely up in space It's a cold, abandoned place It's too bright amongst the stars I think I'm dreaming too far
[Part the Third]
The faintest echo of laughter Presents itself as my only answer
It's distant, like someone drowning in ecstasy But it rings from the walls to my ears The effect of the starry-eyed seas Has mutated into whimpering fears I know I'm not amongst the stars anymore But the damage cannot be undone So I gave myself to the floor I could lie here, and never see the sun
Space could've never actually existed Just a vivid fantasy of escape But my mind has been so twisted It must've been the cruelty of fate
They wonder: Was it lonely up in space? Was it a cold, abandoned place? Will the stars ever forgive? Do I still have a life to live?
