about

A soundscape for a mid-apocalyptic interstellar exodus. Based on the novella Gypsy by Carter Scholz.

lyrics

Can you hear me?
Out here so very far
Reaching for a second chance
Another shining star
We had to leave you
And everything behind
Too late to save our broken world
You'll be there as she dies

We are waking from synthetic sleep
No more waiting, counting chemical sheep
Bodies shaking after sailing through
A vast and empty sea

Can you hear me?
Disaster stalks our flight
Too fast to keep our rendezvous
Hurtling through the night
Desire in our reach
We can almost feel the ground
Reaching out for anything
To slow our lifeboat down

We can make it, we've come so close
Calculating one more desperate approach
Engine ready, say a prayer and ignite
Radioactive hope

Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?

She slips away
We stumbled in our dance
Woke up just outside a dream
At least we'll have a glance
She's beautiful
There's water everywhere
Now shrinking from our view
A star-crossed love affair
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
