All aboard the wistfulness of time and space,
Where god abhors a naked singularity.
Floating out there,
Every single person you and I have known.
Locked in a ball, we’re moving, moving,
We’re moving through clay,
We’re moving through clay.

We’ve stared and wondered all these years:
Is it a turtle that we’re on?
Is it turtles all the way down, right down?

Curiosity, where were you all this while?
Where had you slunk and gone to hide?
Where have you been? You should have seen!
You should have seen..

Ptolemy wasn’t right,
But Coper was wrong in the church’s eye,
(I know this much is true)

The world is just a solid block of paper,
As time will tell us later,
Till then we all stay stuck alike.

I wish there was a way to share this view,
Janet, you should see this sighting too,
so pretty and blue.

We gathered shrubs and we began to hunt,
Busting hogs with hammers blunt,
All down to 1969.

I wish there was a way to share this view,
One hundred hours starts to feel too soon,
Janet, you should see this tiny pea,
so pretty and blue.
