lyrics

SOL 549

You were the first one to call me home, abandoned for 549 sols

You couldn’t stay here, so you drove straight through my heart

Everyone goes.

Under that helmet you have a face, I’ll never see ‘cause you’d suffocate

I know that I’m toxic, but I’d like to say something in side me

Wants you to stay.


You have breached the borders. You have reached the heights.

You have split the sky. Goodbye my pilgrim. Goodbye.

You broke the silence I spun through the years. The heartbeat, the motor, the curses I hear

Pierce through my deafening atmosphere. So alone, so alive, my engineer.


You have breached the borders. You have reached the heights.

You have split the sky. Goodbye my pilgrim. Goodbye.


I sent the storms ‘cross the cratered terrain that somehow you managed to navigate.

They say when you Love someone, let them escape.


You have breached the borders. You have reached the heights.

You have split the sky. Goodbye my pilgrim. Goodbye.
