lyrics

THE TELESCOPE
________________

[BRITTAIN]
Side 2, Track 6. “The Telescope.”

[DAVE (Astronomer)]
LOOK INTO MY TELESCOPE
TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE

[BRITTAIN (Rose Red)]
I SEE A RED STAR

[DAVE]
ANTARES
A RED HYPERGIANT STAR
4900 LIGHT YEARS AWAY
AND A BILLION TIMES LARGER THAN OUR SUN

[BRITTAIN]
I SEE FIRE IN THE DARKNESS
RAGE AGAINST THE VOID
I SEE EVERYTIME MAN CRIED OUT
AND RAISED HIS SWORD AGAINST GOD

[DAVE]
THAT’S GOOD, THAT’S GOOD
NOW LOOK INTO MY TELESCOPE
TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE

[BRITTAIN]
I SEE A BLUE STAR

[DAVE]
GROOMBRIDGE 1830
ALSO KNOWN AS ARGELANDER’S STAR
A CLASS G8 SUBDWARF
MEMBER OF THE GALACTIC HALO

[BRITTAIN]
I SEE MOTHERS WEEPING IN CHAIRS
CLUTCHING THEIR SHAWLS IN THE MORNING

[BRITTAIN & GELSEY]
EVERYTHING IS LOST
ALL IS GONE

[BRITTAIN]
AND SHE TRIES TO FIND THE JOY IN LIFE
BUT SHE IS WASTING AWAY

[DAVE & BRITTAIN]
I LOVE THE WAY YOU SEE THE WORLD
I LOVE THE WAY YOUR SOUL SINGS
I WISH THAT I COULD SING LIKE YOU
I WISH THAT I COULD FEEL THINGS

[BRITTAIN]
NEVER TAKE THE STARS AWAY FROM ME

[DAVE]
LOOK INTO MY TELESCOPE
TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE

[BRITTAIN]
I SEE
I SEE TWO STARS

[DAVE]
YES
SIGMA ORIONIS AB
A BINARY STAR
TWO STARS
LOST IN TIME

[BRITTAIN & GELSEY]
TWO WOMEN
IN THE FOREST
IN THE EVENING
IN A LIGHT RAIN
THE OLDER HAS NO EXPRESSION ON HER FACE
THE YOUNGER HANGS HER HEAD DOWN

THE YOUNGER IS IN LOVE
WAS IN LOVE
IS IN LOVE
WAS IN LOVE

[DAVE & BRITTAIN]
BUT THE LOVER IS IN LOVE
WITH THE OLDER NOT THE YOUNGER
BUT THE LOVER IS IN LOVE
WITH THE OLDER NOT THE YOUNGER

[DAVE & GELSEY]
I LOVE THE WAY YOU SEE THE WORLD
I LOVE THE WAY YOUR SOUL SINGS
I WISH THAT I COULD SING LIKE YOU
I WISH THAT I COULD FEEL THINGS

[GELSEY]
NEVER TAKE THE STARS AWAY FROM ME
