Beings Far Away

beings far away used their static and their rays
they told him to come, said his post here was done
and he messaged back, okay

and left behind a strange new time
his alien mind was a wondrous kind

beings far away drew his vessel around the blaze
the state of his room and the ends we presume
just vapour on his way

left behind in a strange new time
his alien mind was a wondrous kind

true, he never learned to make this home
true, he bore the scars of a wanderer
kept awake at night by an alien light
that was glowing under his skin

true, he never learned to make this home
true, he bore the scars of a wanderer
kept awake at night by an alien light
that was glowing under his skin

left behind in a strange new time
his alien mind was a wondrous kind

left behind in a strange new time
his alien mind was a wondrous kind

he walked among us, blew smoke into our skies
his stories crippled us with laughter and incredulity
they say he danced alone in his attic room
the night he left us
