Dark they were, with golden eyes
Brought golden books from darkened skies
Every word from every world within was written down
They read it all aloud to us with silver tongues of fire
That licked the sun and stars and moon
All space became a choir
Shining shining shining then they left without a sound
Then they left without a sound
Then they left without a sound

    General Comment"Dark They Were and Golden Eyed " was the name of a well known Sci-Fi/Fantasy bookshop. Long gone.
    The way this verse is read, specifically the tone of the vocoder always makes me think it's a direct reference to a Blue Oyster Cult song from Cultosaurus Erectus, you know the one.
