My limbs, are cold and heavy
My vision, is a mess of broken lines
My heartbeat, is fading into the static
My breath, is not my own breath at all
Not my own breath at all

My breath, is not my own breath at all
The stars, have, all but one faded
Into the darkness, many thousand years ago
And now the last one's waning, too

Last one waning, too

Dear listener, please do no be afraid
By the time you hear this, I will surely be dead
Because I am drifting
Out into the void

Cross the Event Horizon
To a strange new world
Filled with many strange creatures
Greeting me with open arms

And I will learn all the secrets
That the living can't know
That we aren't alone here
The not the only ones that think

And now that they seen me
They'll go looking for more

And soon they will find us
