Lyrics

Petals drift in space, journeying post-floral

etherial material whose exponent was mortal

 

While the black ops are reverse-engineering UFOs

I am taking flight through a rose

 

'Cause I saw your face through a closing portal

so I kept in pace and went non-local

 

On the lonely side of the mountain, took a drive

at the blizzard curtain, I arrive

 

With the wingspan longer than the Valiant that I drive

by the displaced air, they arrive

 

And their wings sang louder than the gravel 'neath my tires

 

They sang ah ah ah...
