We drift apart, we drift apart
We drift apart, we drift apart

If there's one reason to smile, it's when you look up out at night
You're fortunate enough to drink in a vista
A hundred billion flares display a glowing history
Splayed out across a canvas, the night sky

But for a moment just contemplate
When looking up, you only saw a blank slate
And for a moment just contemplate
It appears that heaven's been abandoned

We accelerate
Through the estate of outer space
We accelerate
We separate, we fragment

We accelerate
Through the estate of outer space
We accelerate
It appears that heaven's been abandoned

I climbed down from the wall
Where I sit and search for a source of light
Other than our dear sun, the lone star, oh

But for a moment just contemplate
When looking up, you only saw a blank slate
And for a moment just contemplate
It appears that heaven's been abandoned

Just contemplate
What if the heavens were abandoned?

We accelerate
Through the estate of outer space
We accelerate
We separate, we fragment

We accelerate
Through the extent of outer space
We accelerate
It appears that heaven's been abandoned

Your skin and bones
Heart and mind
Are made from the remnants of
Stars that died
And can you feel it inside?
Can you feel it inside?
Can you feel it inside?

A supergiant erupts
Into a supernova
The ultimate sacrifice
And we are the descendants

A supergiant erupts
Into a supernova
The ultimate sacrifice
And we are the descendants

We drift apart, we drift apart
We drift apart, we drift apart
