in the comet

The text in the header is inspired by the lyrics from this beautiful song

In the comet we found there was more than just simple
combinations of ice, dust and gas
there were parts from a circus
and parts from party dresses

now, the best explanation for this
is someone has a party on another planet and we’re not invited
the host has probably read the memories of
endangered beautiful elephants

I know I’m mumbling crazy, honey
but I can’t sing you love songs now
those songs are like sleep to us
necessary, but it has to wait

’cause first I need to see what this comet is
primary goal: get some answers
and search in labs after good results
(who do you think you are, you’re not a scientist, you just clean the floors here)

nothing is mine and nothing is forever
my dream last night
might as well just be a clever act
(no, we never found a party dress and a circus)

nothing is mine and nothing is forever
my dream last night
might as well just be a clever act
(no, we never found a party dress and a circus)

and a thought just hits me about us
of course we are
why didn’t I think of this before
of course we are

we are stardust
we are stardust
we are stardust
of course we are

(I know I’m mumbling crazy, honey
but I can’t sing you love songs now
those songs are like sleep to us
necessary, but it has to wait)

we are stardust

(’cause first I need to see what this comet is
primary goal: get some answers)

we are stardust

(and search in labs after good results
who do you think you are, you’re not a scientist, you just clean the floors here)

I know we are
we are stardust
