Astronaut in Space
WE WERE IN THE WAR

[Verse]

Had our headphones on,

no noise and no song.

Just silent surprise

when death opened wide.

Time to reload,

time to move to high ground.

Meet in the mountains

where they last touched down.

 

[Verse]

A flash of light

brought us to life,

sent a message spore

when we were in the war.

Time to run fast,

leave the fallen behind,

watch the ship blink

then pull us inside.

 

[Verse]

Held the gates for a week

then fell asleep.

Got a badge of gold

but a year in the hole.

Time wore us down

with its gravity,

chasing the tail

of our ancestry.
