lyrics

Darling your eyes are closer
put together than I am used to—gotta think about it
In my history book there’s an answer
It was 70 years ago
No, 70,000 years ago

There’s a hand that I hold, there’s a bluebird
with the blood of a man—I have heard them going on about it
It’s stupid, so what?
Let’s call it by English names
Like “Evil Tina,” or “Justin” or “James”

Still I try and I try
I’m eating stardust half the time
Strangest thing
Got this friend
I cannot picture in my head

But oh how I need it

Sometimes I am a man and my heart is a stone

Galaxy I will conjecture
A comet’s a corner detached from heaven’s heavy door
Aping that celestial BANTER
Now we’re climbing out on the wing
When you’re desperate you’ll do anything

about

Markarians Houserville, Pennsylvania

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.

-Felix Singer, Athens, GA
