The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Carl Sagan


Strange on this journey to the sun
Final light and darkness on the run
We light the fires to guide us home
And our paths may never be known

Tortured souls all so adrift in time
Voices cry at the far side of the sun
Another lie that’ll never be undone

The desert sun that burns your eyes

Souls of heaven the stars in the skies
A tall ship on the sea a cautionary tale
All the lives lost in an unforgiving gale

These are the stars aligned in the sky
These are the paths we take and deny
