When you look up at the stars, And think of the worlds out there, With their wonderful life, And strange frontiers, What do you think about? *** Do you ever imagine yourself, Sat on a distant world, Far from home, Looking up at an alien sky, Questioning the worlds out there? *** Through the sea of time, The universe has seen, There have been galaxies born, And galaxies burned, Long before you were here. *** Across the vast dark sky, It's lonely formation, Only broken by starlight, Pinpricks in the universe, Showing what the darkness hides. *** We sit atop our ship, Sailing through the deep black, We are at once part of the universe, And apart from the universe, Contemplating our existence.
