"Goodbye Milky Way" as written by and Michael Cretu....
Shall I go, shall I stay
107 light years away
Many times, so many doubts
But no reason to talk about

Mission is over, mission is done
I will miss you, children of the sun
But it's time to go away
Goodbye milky way

For a better world without hate
Follow your heart, believe in fate
Only visions and the mind
Will guide you to the light

Mission is over mission is done
I will miss you children of the sun
But it's time to go away
Goodbye milky way

Mission is over, mission is done
I will miss you children of the sun
I go home until someday
I say goodbye, goodbye milky way

In 5 bilions years the
Andromeda galaxy will collide with our milky way
A new gigantic Cosmic world will be born

    General CommentThis is a.... simple song.

    It is imagery, words from a visitor from far off. It's his time to go, but he is reluctant. Reluctant to leave the children of the sun(Mankind). But before he leaves, he's giving one small piece of advice.

    General Comment"I’ll get born this one day"

    This line is actually "I go home, until someday," according to the lyrics in the booklet from A Posteriori.

    Beautiful song.

    General CommentMy understanding of this song goes into a really esoteric concept. Going by the subject matter and some of their other songs, I think that Michael Cretu privately identifies as a Star-seed. This is a concept that seems totally schizophrenic at first glance but pay attention to what the people claiming that about themselves are actually saying and how they conduct themselves. The belief may seem improbable but it actually isn't co-morbid with mental illness, in summation, a Star-seed is a person who finds reason to believe that they incarnated here on Earth from an extraterrestrial source.

    This opens the door onto a deeper interpretation of this song because Star-seeds report that the reason why they incarnated here on Earth is because they took on a mission in order to help uplift existence on this planet.

    Many of them describe feeling like this could be akin to a Hard-ship mission because they are leaving a peaceful and more advanced society for the turmoil and entrenched psychosis of Earth.

    Michael captured the feeling of this so perfectly that I can't imagine how he hasn't had the same kinds of feelings. The song represents the choice that all Star-seeds will face once this mission is accomplished:

    Shall I go, shall I stay

    Yet It's obvious that the narrator chooses to say goodbye. No reason is given why and the narrator even indicates that this is for personal reasons:

    Many times, so many doubts
    But no reason to talk about

    Many times they've wanted to leave and felt doubt but no reason to talk about it now.

    I will miss you children of the Sun

    There are those that will be missed that our Star-seed bonded with who will be remembered fondly. Humanity is encouraged to keep the higher insights and capabilities to heart and with that, their mind is made up, It's time to go back to the stars. It's a sorrowful goodbye but goodbye it is.
