Do I ask too much?
Sacred lips I'm too afraid to touch
Hang a mirror inside and call it a temple
Prepare my thunderous mind
to get sick when your mouth sings,
"Earth gave us everything"

Tell me, when will I turn over?
Borrowed kingdoms, I might
hold on forever

Perfection's dead, now what?
Music's rolling in just as I'm rolling out
Put a symbol inside and call it a chapel
Release my thunderous mind
to run free when I'm icebound
in a wig and a nightgown

Imagine an alien species of explorers from a galaxy some 70 million light years distant. Countless generations have lived and died on the journey to Earth. Whole histories, micro-civilizations come and gone. But at last they are here. Markarians are here. Only…somewhere along the way, rounding the Sombrero Galaxy, they forgot why they came. And how to get back.
