The sky is deep, the sky is dark, 
The light of stars is so damn stark. 
When I look up, I fill with fear. 
If all we have is what lies here, 
this lonely world, this troubled place, 
then cold dead stars and empty space . . . 
Well, I see no reason to persevere, 
no reason to laugh or shed a tear, 
no reason to sleep or ever to wake, 
no promises to keep, and none to make. 
And so at night I still raise my eyes to study the clear but mysterious skies -- 
that arch above us, as cold as stone. 
Are you there, God? Are we alone?
