Gonna give him the house
Holy books on the stove
Yellow mark every word
It's all the guilt I've known

Gonna teach him to walk
In crooked paths gone straight
Gonna show him the bars
Gonna show him the gate

Now I'll never get my fingers wet
I say that with a heavy heart, I guess
Oh but wait, yeah, all too innocent
It's obvious: the little time I've spent

Go and ask Shelly
for little glass shells. Ah!
Water trickles down your spine
It's everlasting love
It's so much wrestling in the dust
There's not a secret I can't hide

Hardly tested at all
I dipped my head right in
I lost the power to crawl
But now I gave it to him

Oh potential to use
this power recklessly
A revelation or two
Like last delusional spring

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.
