And stardust in the night.
I’m shooting through a bubbling sea
Of stars and space and time
And roaring ’round the Universe
With nothing on my mind.
My craft throws flames and jet spray
Bursting flashes in the sky
Washing white the soundless borders
Of great floating nebulae.
And I feel an awesome power
And hear great melodic strains
As I bank against the farthest light
And head back home again.
Oh! to trip the light fantastic
Past the charted realms of man
Is to drink the draughts of ecstasy
And to see a greater Plan
Which guides the hand of destiny,
Illuminates the skies,
Gives thrust to our trajectory,
And validates our lives.
