So Much Universe

"So Much Universe"
(Holly Furlone)

When I was younger, I believed it
When they told us that
We could do anything, go anywhere
But did they really mean it
Cause me well

I've been trying so hard ever since
Sometimes it seems for nothing
Most of the time it, most of the time it
Feels like chasing circles, like I'm in orbit, oh
Am I there yet

And there's so much universe
So much space and time
And just to think about it almost hurts
But for me the not-knowing's worse than
Getting lost
In the dark
In the dark

(Some oooooos)

And there's so much universe
So much space and time
And just to think about it almost hurts
But for me the not-knowing's worse than
Getting lost

So Much Universe inflatable vegetables

Why am I locked in this hotel room when I could run run around out there?
And why am I singing this song to myself when I could sing it to someone who cares?
Get my ass up off of this threadbare couch and kick my rocket ship to hyperdrive
Well there's so so so much universe and there's so so little time

We'd just finished a gig in Quadrant Five when the engine starts to sputter and whine
Quick plot in a Mayday course for the nearest rock with sentient life
Vegalas is a danger zone, but the flight controller's guiding us down
He says "Lock yourselves into a port hotel, and don't you dare go into town."

CH

Mechadroids checking the damage out say repairs will take 3 or 4 days
Shuttle us off to the Diamond Inn, a "schrechliches" and "squallore" place
The desk clerk is a Havala, a dull stupid shade of brown
It said "Lock yourselves in 16B and don't you dare go into town"

Well a flyer on the wall says "Miss Universe Swimsuit Competition tonight"
So we flag down a taxi, ride to town, to the convention site.
The locals here are a form of T Rex,
Humans aren't popular except as snacks
Runners up chased us back to the Diamond Inn
We're singing and they're dancing but how long can it last?

Why are we locked in this hotel room when we could run run around out there?
And why are we singing this song for ourselves when we could sing it for someone who cares?
They're 12 meters long, and weigh 7 tons -- Reptile bikini girls just want to have fun
Well there's so so so much universe and there's so so little time

So Much Universe
by Berkeley Social Scene

The wind stopped, but the rain is still beating
If I could keep hold of you will you stop retreating
I can’t help thinking that our paths are too divergent
Every love is true, but only lasts a moment

I was counting on forever
But there was too much to transverse
Once you start there’s no stopping
So much universe

This song I sing floats right out the door
Once you got in the car you couldn’t hear it anymore
You can cry in the parking lot all night
When the moment is broken it won't turn out right

I was counting on forever
But there was too much to transverse
Once you start there’s no stopping
So much universe

Your headlights shine on the outline
of a wolf howling in the moonlight
The Tin Man frozen from rain
The lion paralyzed with pain

All this forever, the space seems unending
to pilot this ship, you can’t be pretending
I can keep my eyes open until the dust starts to settle
It won’t end with a bang, but with something more gentle

I was counting on forever
But there was too much to transverse
Once you start there’s no stopping
So much universe

:D :? ;)

"So Much Universe" by ~)*|*(~

(inflation period):

[0] [1]
[2] [3] [4] [5]
[6] [7] [8] [9]

(age of matter):

[10] [11]
[12] How many light years
[13] from the edge of the verse to the right here?
[14] from the left of the head to the right ear?
[15] from the best of the dead to the height here?

[16] There is no edge. There is no head. There is no spoon, no sky, no
[17] dead.

[18] How many eons from the now to the end to the beyond?
[19] from the edge of the skin to the neuron? from the pie in the sky to the prion?

[20] There is no now, no skin, no pie. There is no cake. There is no
[21] lie.

[22] How many cardinalities from no quantity to unity?
[23] from infinity to lucidity? from identity to community?

[24] There is no one, no zero too. There's so much verse, there is no
[25] you.
