Base Of My Skull

from by David Singer

lyrics

a sad and lonely race. drifting out through space. afraid to think we are alone. is god directing us. is god protecting us. don't you think he's got some problems of his own. you think he sees you. but he don't. you tell yourself he'll save you. when you know he probably won't. but gravity commands us with its pull. i feel it in the base of my skull. if i should die before i wake. it's not for heaven's sake. the galaxy stretches on. two hundred billion suns. are burning in its spiral spray. deposits of sediment. are we so arrogant. to think that god has time to listen to us pray. you think he hears you but you're wrong. he'd like to help you baby. but he isn't very strong. but gravity commands us with its pull. i feel it in the base of my skull. if i should die before i wake. it's not for heaven's sake
