Story

 

josh had this started and larry byrom brought in a section and i pretty much was handed the lyric.  since this was very obviously going to land in a beach boys "pet sounds" and "holland" soundscape, i just pictured a weird van dike parks type of imagery and how much farther out there can you go than Voyager itself.

Lyrics

 

there, i can see you there floating in the darkness

there just faintly glowing out in the universe

 

   when i try to take a photograph again today

   set against the milky way

 

     you're only a pale blue dot

     a tiny spot in heaven

     what use to be home to me - has come  to be

     a pale blue dot

 

here, where I travel it's only me and stardust

here and I can hardly see through the ebony

 

   all I am is just a voyager from yesterday

   now some billion miles away

 

   solo

 

   when I look around to comprehend eternity

   looking back all I can see

 

     is only a pale blue dot

     a tiny spot in heaven

     that use to be home to me

     but will forever be

     a pale blue dot memory
