I must look up into the breach again,
To the wondrous sight in the sky,
And ask that I do understand
Of a star, that now wonders its why.
And the breath of color that sing’s its song
The lengths of its light shaking,
Through the shaded mist of history’s face,
The present, of its dawn, breaking.

Seething stars through bloodshot eyes
In silent scenes of death
Races, violently, burning
For a never want of rest

Gaming, future, systems
Like a treasure found for me
I realize that returning
Is a spot I cannot see

I mention, saying, never, known
In a heart that doesn’t exist
As destiny leans on through
And puts its end to this.

Phased deep, ejectica
Of a glowing, dark mass
Illuminates, it’s infrared
Winding –
Phased gas.
