Laika (atomic # 2)

U're in my Helium dream
in a droning machine
they send in2 space
high in th sky, riding th rails
2 measure th spin, of their daily grind

lurching 2 + fro
the capsule left th earth
no 10, 9, 8, untested machine,
unchartered skies, no 3, 2, 1
no kiss + fly

the capsule wobbled unsound
scarcely leaving th ground
by th dangling cord, i pulled U down
opened th hatch, searched th bay
but U were neither
here nor there
lost in th aether in-between

≈ 5chroedingers cat
th wave hadn't collapsed
i searched thick + thin
4 a sine U were here, found a duckling
w/ a black 5hiny 5heen, in this 5hape-5hifting dream

i wasn't sure it was U
U were sassy + shrewd
wearing a wig, th name U put,
on the manifest, wasn't yrs
U got th last laugh

+ i hugged U tight
2 never seper8 w/o B-ing

tethered 2gether
ionized in ⊕rbit
th sun sets in eachother
every atom's eve

U wake from Helium dream
pillow wet from tears
from all the fears, they launched U away,
in2 thin air, th ionosphere,
⊕ 2 th moon

in this hot air balloon
2 measure tempo's refrain
ioniz8ion 4ce, dat bonds our cores,
weather ⊕ not, from soular storms
⊕ unidentified 4ce
⊕ 2 see how we look from outer space

tethered 2gether
ionized in ⊕rbit
th sun sets in eachother
every atom's eve

... th0 who nose iF y'all will end up Using these lyrics... 4 1 yr bedder-½ ain't crazy abt halving s0 many words 2 sing > ya'll also want this album 2 B about «time» + Laika isn't about time s0 much az space ... or az X said in «i must not think bad thoughts»

Astronauts go back in time to hang out with the cave people
It's about time
It's about space
It's about some people in the strangest places
Woody Guthrie sang about
B-E-E-T-S, not B-E-A-T-S

> Speaking of, watched this gr8 X: the Unheard Music documentary th other day:

> also 0-cured 2 U dat th above dream had ∫umping 2 do w/ th Camper Van Beethoven song «The Day That Lassie Went 2 the Moon», especially the line abt how she packed her bags + got in2 a hot-air balloon...

... naught dat th Sound Furies «Laika» will sound N-E thing ≈ this CVB song ... «Laika» mos def sounds '80s, but more ≈ The Cult ± Gene Loves Jezebel... U'll halve 2 w8 tel iT's mixed 2 here iT
