about

Topsy is slowing being sucked into the sky. She’s unsure if it’s heaven.

lyrics

As the gravity bends I prepare to ascend
to the far great beyond
floating away, floating away I am gone

I lift off the ground, I don't know where I’m bound
but I’m far better off
floating away, floating away I am gone

the moments the seconds the minutes compile
the inches, the feet, the yards, the miles
in a while my sorrows will be far gone


the sirens they wail, they bid me farewell
to the new rising dawn
floating away, floating away I am gone

its over, I’m frozen, locked in the light
farewell to the darkness farewell to the night
its brighter much brighter than the morning sun

if this is truly the end I will never again
sing a sorrowful song
floating away, floating away I am gone
