Hymn to Pluto

You said it was forever
But you changed your mind
Now I’m all alone in time
Floating through space
In a circle with no end
You said you were my friend

Sun so small at this distance
Darkness seems the path of least resistance
Cast out your heart when you threw me away
But I’ll live to see another day

Dancing bodies have your eye
But I will move you
By and by
I left my trace in the depths of you
A subtle shade a deeper hue

Oooh, an angel crossed my path today
She wiped the tears from my face, my face
She cast a spell of protection
Then she gave me a new name, a new name


I carry all the colors
Emotions named and unnamed
Through the outer limits
Like a sacred flame


You said it was forever
But you changed your mind
Now I’m all alone in time
Floating in space
In a circle with no end
You said you were my friend
