Deep in space there is a little nothing
Deep in time you can find it crawling
Growing farther from everything that's near it
Growing dimmer to everything that's further
Submerge in space, moving on time
You will find a tiny rotating spiral
You can call it yours, I can call it mine
Zoom in, go ahead and do it
Watch the spiral grow before you slowly
Discover with your eyes its monumental brightness
Admire its unhidden beauty as it becomes unholy
Everything is swirling, all the matter orbits
At the center a mysterious and energetic creature
Stealing light and life and knowledge
Converting its destruction in just another feature
Now get a little closer
Forget about the center, about the phantom
Began to explore the spirals
Stop at one of these arms, you might find a sanctum
What do you see now at the edge of that one spiral?
Can you focus on that small ball burning?
In the darkness, can you see it shining?
Can you feel the forces turning?
Dancing around the distant creature
You can experience the strong force pulling
It is Sir Gravity sending its beacher
Your view consists of rocks, gas and a fire ball ruling
Fragment of the Cosmos
Zoom in one more time now,
And now focus on that tiny blue stain
Forget about the giant gas ball and its stormy vow
Is the blue dot what you expected? Will you send a complaint?
Let that pale blue dot take you in
Let it give you life and air
Let its gravity kiss you on the chin
Not in this solar system, No you won’t find a pair.
And now you are just one more object
Gravitationally bounded in that inhomogeneous planet
You become just another "human" or project
A prisoner on earth just like any other rock of granite
You make the blue stain your home
You call "my neighborhood" that rotating spiral
You fantasize that you have set up a throne
And then you realize, the universe might have become viral.
Hear in the distance something saying:
"You are deep in space, you are this little nothing,
you are deep in time, strangers find you crawling"
