lyrics

Behind the backs of satellites
The giants out in space
turn to blinking dots that whirl around
the wonders of your face

We're caught up in the afterglow
encircled by the roads
of pulling stars and comet shards
and nova bursts of old

And these two only cross each other
once in countless years
Their hearts are cleared of shadows
They touch and disappear

They radiate and overlap
They catapult and spin
in arcs and intersections
we may never see again

Your generation's blessed to see
these bodies cross and part
They kissed each other quickly
in the mesmerizing dark

They kissed each other quickly
in the mesmerizing dark

We walked across the moonlit sand
and the long gone stars above
were all aligned like saints behind
the holiness of love

We're reaching for the meaning
of the glow beyond the glare
with the pull of synchronicity
above the rising air

From the rooftops of our vantage point
With power grids aglow
The anchors of our lines of sight
make chariots swing low
The anchors of our lines of sight
make chariots swing low

I can almost see Rosetta
She's waiting like a coin
that was tossed into the waters
of a deep and airless void
She'll unfold inside the blackness
She'll fire hooks and threads
She will cut into the mysteries
that circle overhead

You're blessed to see these heavenly
bodies cross and part
They kissed each other quickly in
the mesmerizing dark

They kissed each other quickly
in the mesmerizing dark
