Inspired by the book Solyaris


Top of the World

All of her sketches in ink
could not prepare me for the top of the world

might my memories be
the air that she breathes
there's something quite wrong with the atmosphere

are you alive
you come in my sleep
the thoughts that we think
are unstoppable

just like the straight and narrow
turning back in on itself
you can't believe anything spoken here
I won't go alone

all of the science in space
could not take me away
you're all that I know

with quite the trick of the hat
it filled up my veins
but left everything else hollow

no, I'm not letting them in
they'll take you away
and send me back down to the surface

I'd rather have the top of the world
than the pieces of me I left
back at my home

oh save me
from my lonely
oh reya
from my lonely
