Fourth work up here. I'm a bit of a aerospace geek, so uh, this was inspired by me reading about the Golden Record/Pioneer plaque. Ah, the wonders of Wikipedia...

Pioneers and Voyagers Make No Difference To Black Skies

Alone in this sea of people
Alone but not lost
Alone but there’s a sign of life
In the lone companion I’ve got

If I
If I were to say something back
Would I
Would I say the right words?
If I
If I could signal for help
Would I
Would the combination of lines and dots make sense?

Alone in this sea of stars
Alone but not lost
Alone but drifting in tranquil
No need for claustrophobia

If I
If I were to bounce back a message
Would I
Would I do it right?
If I
If I could breathe in the nonexistent air
Would I
Would I cut off the tether and bathe myself in emptiness?

Alone in this sea of stars
Alone but not lost
Alone but there’s a sign of life
And I wonder, can it see life in me?
