lyrics

It's light-years to the next star,
But I don't mind the cold and dark
I keep my distance and keep goin' 'round,
Not a sound as I fly this arc

Gravity keeps pulling me,
But this inertia never stops
Keep sliding, frigid through the vast expanse
For lifespans of many smaller rocks

You are the sun
And I am in the Oort cloud
Everyone is flying around the sun
And I'm still in the Oort cloud

You're drawn as a circle,
But we all know your life is a sphere, oh my dear
And part of me was once catapulted into your world
Just to burn out and fly away, hey

I suppose it seems severe
To live so far from everyone
Beyond the interstellar medium,
Meet no one, but I still glimpse the sun

You are the sun
And I am in the Oort cloud
Everyone is flying around the sun
And I'm still in the Oort cloud,
Yes I'm still in the Oort cloud
