Cocoon of Cellophane

It travels at the speed of light
nothingness around the sky
floating in the darkness
there’s no day or night

Playing with a newborn star
chasing forgotten satellites
not worrying about uncertainty
everything will be alright

Amazed at how unreal this is
how infinite and trivial
jumping from cloud to cloud
in cellophane is exciting

Controls in the machinery fail
leading to an unplanned bang and shock
and it felt confused and lonely
but everything will be alright

It wanders beyond colorful dust
wrapped in a cocoon of cellophane

i’m moving, i’m falling, a black hole
everything is changing fast
i’m drowning, i’m choking, a black hole
i am going to crash and burn

i don’t really care where i’m going
or this could lead to
just get me higher
the compass is broken
I just got to keep steering forward
please get me higher
its gonna be alright

It wanders beyond colorful dust
wrapped in a cocoon of cellophane
