"One Dark World"
by Kerry Livgren
The expanses beckon;
the mystery still
Are we living all alone in these vast domains?
|We search, we wonder, we listen and we peer...|
the more we fear...
|The lights of the distant glories we cannot name...|
|Demanding a sense of purpose we cannot claim...|
Where time has
our reason does not apply...
Word of Creator
through the void we roam
and then we fall
one of an endless array,
this terrestrial ball
And for one
this Earth was the center stage...
For just one moment, the Diamond of the age
in a world so far away
and drift astray
in a world so far away
and still... oh, still we pray...
And still we
pray... as we drift away...
|Still we pray...||Please bring us home...||We drift away...|
|Please bring us home...||Away...||Still we pray...|
bring us home...
|We drift away...||Please bring us home...|
Still we pray...
We drift away...
Please bring us

Special thanks go to Kerry Livgren
for all the music over the years and for his generosity
in allowing me to use one of his songs as the heart of this site.
Special thanks also go to Diana Whay
for not letting me keep on ignoring
the Apollo 1 disaster just because I was too young to remember...
And finally, unfathomable thanks go to the brave men of Apollo 1.
THE CONQUEST OF SPACE
IS WORTH THE RISK OF LIFE.
