Once, constellations were holy, now darkness  

pervades all the older ones 

and in the brunt of implosion, all yesterday's golden 

now reddened suns 

and hope is a word with no space for blame in. 

Red Shift, displaced now in time and relativity, 

Red Shift, all moving away from we.

Time locked in negative matter  

all theories shatter beneath the weight 

Happy is the man who believes that the world 

is a dream and all reason, fate 

And time moves on with no time 

the eye moves on with no rhyme 

and I'm a song in the depth of the galaxies 

Red Shift is taking away my sanit 

Red Shift, all moving away from w
