one by one they crawl over and over one another astronaut traveler seeking the unknown hindsight-blind, you're lost you can't find the way home

Tired of living in Earthly squalor There’s this place I have in mind No need to pray to the son or the father We’re cruising to colony 479 Off-world colony 479 You can see the Saturn rings I can get us there in plenty of time You don’t have to pack a thing There is no fear or superstition We can ignore the flow of time We won’t need no ammunition Everyone loves you at colony 479 Off-world colony 479 You can see Jupiter’s moons Climb inside my rocket divine We’ll arrive very soon

i picked up the signal three days ago outside of alpha centauri on my way to colony 479 it was faint at first but as i got closer, i could hear it: help me it said. it clearly said 'me' so my concern for a massive rescue in my limited-space was slightly quelled. i set course for the origin of the signal and waited. the droning of the ship's engines paired with the music i was playing. add the repeating words 'help me' and it seemed like a lullaby and soon i found myself drifting off to sleep. i awoke after what seemed like ten minutes or so. something was not right. the lights of the spaceship's interior, a smattering of various controls and displays, was noticeably dim. the ship had landed, it seemed, but not by me or auto control. 'you're awake.' a voice said, breaking the silence in the cockpit and startling the shit out of me. i froze for a moment, wondering if i should raise my hands or grab my service pistol. i slowly spun my chair to see the most beautiful woman i have ever seen. her hair was dark and flowing with an exotic look about her. it didn't seem like she was wearing any make up but her lashes were naturally thick and gave the appearance of it. Her lips were full and inviting. She wore a long simple gown that seemed to flow into the floor. she had to be a space siren. it would explain the loss of time. and her beauty. 'who are you?' i asked. she moved towards me without moving her lips and i heard it. 'i am your salvation.' i felt a force come over me restricting my movement and i struggled to reach for my service pistol. but i couldn't move. the fear hit me not knowing what was going to happen, but it was subsided by an undeniable hedonistic feeling. "what do you want?" i asked. she moved towards me without speaking and began touching me; at first, innocently and that soon turned to inappropriate. red flags were popping up everywhere and i drank it all in. she made use of me and when she was finished, i saw her get up through some kind of haze. had she drugged me? what was happening? 'chase,' she said my name although i hadn't spoken it. i woke up still pressed to the reclined captain's chair. i must have slept for i don't know how long but i was alone. the ship's power generator was nearly dead. life support systems were barely online. and i saw it. she had taken all of my fuel cells. once my ship's power generators died, that will soon become my fate unless i find another way...

You’re looking up They’re looking down Bright lights shine on the ground Hello new friend Is it over? Hello old friend Is it over? They hold you down Time disappears Sleeping awake All these years You can’t forget You can’t let go You're laying in your bed again Living in your head again It's all right Hello new friend Is it over? Hello old friend Is it over? It's all right you're finally home it's all right

stay still and look around you all the floating spikes and spinning circles look at her, look closely she has flame in her eyes and yours are hypnotized she offers you to take a sip as she pours wine down onto her skin yet you drink it all away down inside her you give yourself in all along (you have never felt so unleashed) and you crawl in to get closer to her throne where she sits and waits for you and you worship her and crave her more as she swallows you whole until you are gone this is what was told all along it is what was sold all along this is what was planned to be all along this is what was made by you all (you say you have never felt so released) to beat it all you think you can really give her everything and when it all comes down to this you scream it all together spoken words: All around the valve She screams her highest sound Aching, bleeding from the mouth Souls lost and found All along As the rockets thrust She lets out a breathy sigh To forgive the broken trust All along to beat it all you think you can really give her everything and when it all comes down to this you scream it all together this is what was told all along it is what was sold all along this is what was planned to be all along this is what was made by you all

breathless 
 she moves across the painted sky reaching through centuries of old 
sirens calling 
sirens calling sing, sing, siren the tale is spun achelous is waiting sing, sing, siren the tale is spun the traveler is on the run restless he chases paper moons seeking embers from the flame 
and the sirens falling sirens calling his name sing, siren, sing the morning will come the flame has already been made sing, siren, sing the morning will come and soon the night will be undone [bridge] across space and time our vow of flesh burns like embers from the stars while the ebony of space yearns weightless transformations engage the void pulling out the morning sun sirens crawling sirens calling sirens... siren siren sing the darkness has been spun achelous is waiting siren, siren, sing the darkness has been spun the traveler is on the run sing siren sing the morning will come the flame has already been made sing siren sing the morning will come and soon the heart will succumb sing siren sing the morning will come and soon the night will be undone
