lyrics

Drifting and fading away
I count the days go by.
Swallowing memory pills
by the fistful.
Remembering what you last said
I promised to come back.
We slept in Andromeda’s bed
sleeping so peaceful.

Listening for signs of life
through these instruments.
They can barely whisper a sound.
Are they broken?
Silence is now so routine,
part of my protocol.
Emotions been programed away
never spoken.

Chorus
Floating here helpless
I’m drowning in negative space.
Fearing our union
could be many light years away.
The deeper I travel
the more I’m attracted to you.
It’s a futile resistance
your gravity I can’t escape.

I study a photo of you
under a microscope.
Tracing the lines of your face
keeps me sane.
Sequencing future events,
suffer the consequence.
Visions of moments with you,
echoes in my brain.

Chorus

Lonely is drifting in space.
Lonely I’m drifting.

Lonely is drifting in space.
Lonely we’re drifting, now.
