Lyrics by C. Vincent Plummer

you wanna know that you occupy
the space of Jupiter in his eyesight

in his ocular cavity there's a red storm
it's lifeless and without form

while i'm just another moon spinning in circles
a slave to orbit Jupiter

let's break free of his
gravitational hold
on you and me

I don't pull you
the way you pull me

you accelerate like a light beam
your motion is relative, theoretically

a celestial rarity that i could explore
for eternity leave me wanting more

we could be renegades
escape in a black hole

heaven's anarchists
our star song

but time has a mythological hold
on you and me

but I don't pull you
the way you pull me
