lyrics

Looking back at Earth from a quarter million miles
Small, serene, and blue and white, and fragile
Boundaries vanish and all borders disappear
When your thumb can cover all that you hold dear

The Loneliest Astronaut

The most distant traveller humankind has got
he nods a brief goodbye to that pale blue dot
No ideologies or politics in sight
Just a tiny planet shining blue and white

The Loneliest Astronaut

"Blue and white
not capitalist or communist
Blue and white
not rich or poor
Blue and white
not envious or envied"
Just blue and white
Just blue and white

Three billion plus two outside of his steel cocoon
One plus God knows what as he flies behind the moon
Everyone who ever lived, obstructed by a stone
out of sight and out of contact, truly alone

The Loneliest Astronaut
