lyrics

Well I've been gone for so long now, I'll never find my way
I wonder where I went so wrong
And there's not much I can say except I wish I'd stayed at home

I sailed right through a black hole
I crashed into a sun, survived a subatomic shift
But now I'm stuck between dimensions
Quantum-partically adrift

Well I don't wanna die alone
But I'm running out of oxygen
The food supply is low
The thrill of my discovery of a self-renewing energy
Is somewhat tempered by the fact I can't get home

So I'll just wait it out I guess
There can't be too much space-time left
I hope the cats will be okay
No, think of something else

These stranger skies, a backdrop
Beautiful but no replacement
Give me cloudless blue, I changed my mind
I miss it so

[INTERLUDE!]

Cuz there's no place like home
No dimension like my own

Well I've had it know, the end is close
The oxygen's all gone
With my dying breaths I'm singing one last song
Something by Descendents or a verse from "The Decline"
If I'm gonna die I'll make it worth my time

Cuz there's no place home
No dimension like my own
