1. pale blue dot

From the recording time machine

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.


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
   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
