EGGRAMEN - Filk - The Midnight Meteor

The Midnight Meteor

Hurtling, spinning, turning
Rushing, shooting, yearning
A lonely little rock speeding through space

Passing by the emerald sun
Stirring not a single one
Of millions of worlds it will outpace

It dances through the skies of endless dark
The children hide away, waiting from its core
Skims the void and green upon a spark
The solar wind song of the midnight meteor

They come to call it home
Through the bubbles it will roam
Piercing pockets of ghostly memory

Meeting, passing, say goodbye
All the dead have had their try
The world is shifting towards what it must be

It dances through the skies of endless dark ...

Somewhere, the sister ship sails
Passing whisps of blurred light-trails
Witches, heirs, and crows abound

Their note came long ago
The sole record left to show
That their unseen good friends are still around

It dances through the skies of endless dark ...

Tonight we'll sit on the precipice and watch the ashes fall
Aboard this little rock we'll see the universe look so small
We'll bask in eerie light as shining orbs dart by
Their glow will play the role of twilight fireflies...

It dances through the void of endless dark... (Risen darkness left behind...)
The children hide away, waiting from its core... (Out of our sight, out of ours minds...)
Skims the void and green upon a spark... (Eerie lights of fireflies...)
The solar wind song of the midnight meteor... (Bright bubbles rushing by...)

Flying along, aloft, across the starless night... (It dances through the void of endless dark...)
In endless dark, and nothing more... (The children hide away, waiting from its core...)
The old ones whisper but they never touch our sight... (Skims the void and green upon a spark...)
Their voices are the chorus of the midnight meteor... (The solar wind song of the midnight meteor...)

We listen to the song of the midnight meteor... (The meteor...)

Come hear the song of the midnight meteor...
