lyrics

Escape Velocity

the scenery is slipping past
it’s shooting down out of your grasp
towards mountains of the underworld
with heroes who never uncurl

they can’t go back now they have reached
their escape velocity

the bullies take what they can squeeze
from the mild flocks of the meek
they’re slumbering so perfectly
they never count one single sheep

they can’t go back now they have reached
their escape velocity

disfigured stars worlds of lament
the fields and streams a monument
to all the tears left un-cried
‘til Orphueus is with his bride

She can’t go back
now she has reached
her escape velocity

he can’t go back
now she has reached
his escape velocity
