SJU: 7

HAVE YOU SEEN THE SPACESHIP MOTHER, BURIED UNDER AUTUMN LEAVES
A REMNANT FROM A DISTANT FUTURE OR JUST A SILLY MAKE BELIEVE
COULD IT BE A STRANGE ILLUSION, A FIGMENT OF MY FEVERED BRAIN
A CRY FOR HELP FROM DEEP WITHIN ME OR AM I GOING STARK INSANE ?
A CLOSER LOOK BENEATH THE MOULD MAY PUT THE FUTURE IN OUR HAND
BUT ON THE GROUND BENEATH THE STARS LIES THE BODY OF A GARBAGE CAN...

I'VE NEVER BEEN SCARED OF WHAT IS TO COME
THE ONLY WAY IS UP AND BEYOND THE SUN
DRIFTING IN THE BLACKNESS OF THE UNIVERSE
WAITING FOR A CALL FROM A DISTANT WORLD

LOOKING INTO SPACE TAKES SO MUCH OF YOU
TO SEE INSIDE THE MIND OF THE MAKER TOO
FLOATING IN A SAC OF COINCIDENSE
IS THERE REALLY LIFE BEYOND COMMON SENSE?

AND IF WE FIND IT, IF WE REALLY DO, SHOULD WE SURRENDER TOO?

BUT IN THE END MAYBE THERE IS SOMETHING ELSE MUCH MORE THAN THIS
YOU MAY FIND YOUR LUCKY STAR INSIDE THE COSMOS THAT YOU ARE

WHO CAN BE THE MASTER OF THE OPEN SKY
WHO IS TO DECIDE WHO'S TO LIVE OR DIE
DESPERATELY SEEKING THE SEVENTH KEY
UNLOCKING THE DOOR TO THIS MYSTERY

AND IF WE FIND IT, IF WE REALLY DO, SHOULD WE SURRENDER TOO?
