There's a black hole in the peaceful blue I've torn open
I stand on the event horizon against it's vacuum, like wind to a boulder
I shake off the delirium focus my eyes and collect my thoughts
In the distance i see an orange shining star and 8 planets
The change of scenery is blissful, but I can not rest here
Scared but determined, my knees tremble as I prepare to lasso the comet
I know this steed well in my 76 years and there's no need to tame it
As I get off at the milky-way and ride the rocket home
I smile in anticipation to the common man's woes.
