Far up, far out, high above the Earth
Should get a simple job where I won't get hurt
But now I'm higher than I've ever gotten
The world below looks bitterly deserted, godless and forgotten

Far up, far out, at twice the speed of sound
Can't see a soul, but I could never on the ground
The scene below is like a puddle of blood
The sky turned red and the sun went to bed
And I went on into the deepest darkness I've ever known
I've never felt so alone

Through the night, the cabin lights shine
Keep me awake, unaware of the time
I look above to see if anyone is keeping me safe
I close my eyes, 'cause the view almost drove me insane

Next I looked up, I was beating the plain, a herd
And the injuns appeared to me and offered safe passage of my herd
And I saw a tryptophan fly out of the world
No difference between heaven and hell
Must have meant I was an athiest
Now it was established, I could smile
Not fatherly

I saw the soldiers' spirits rising through the ground
Trying the catalyst there, who's smiling now
An avenue where other people believed
An offer now, of the protection, evil-sleeved
