The Stars are Gone

TTTO Peter Alway’s “Almeda Dance #2” (originally an instrumental)

Context: “Spin” by Robert Charles Wilson

‘Cause we will all fall, and we will all land
But we don’t know where that place might be
So we’ll run and hide, we’ll not make a stand
And soon like Diane I know I’ll be

[Chorus]
When the Spin is on, and the night is black
We know not, guess not, when the stars come back
And the world will spiral down to hell
Since the time the black Spin curtain fell

[Chorus]

We have done some tests, and we see this now
From the universe we’re cut away
And although we tried, we cannot know how —
Time has been sped up and we will decay

[Chorus]

So we send them off to go settle Mars
For humanity must stay alive
But it’s not for long they will see the stars
They get Spinned there too, as soon as they thrive

[Chorus]

Bridge:
Stars in the sky are back, could it be the end is here?
How can we deal with that, ’till now it has all been clear
What if we sail away, leave here all that we have known
With those who have the faith, with them we’ll not be alone

Still the Martian guy, he came from that place
With the drugs and nanobots and plan
We have took the drugs, the plan we embraced
And we now escape in that plain white van

[Chorus]
And the world will spiral down to hell
Since the time the black Spin curtain fell
