Vibe with me (far away, so close)
There's a starman waiting in the sky--he'd like to come and meet us but he's afraid he'd blow our minds...
Vibe with me. Fly with me. Release the emergency brake. Let yrself believe, tune into the frequency coming from the stars--at once here and THERE. Dasein. Like angels watching each one of us from above--their gaze is the scene as we see it in our mind's eye.
There's no interference--no need for abductions or Hollywood movie plots. The signal fits in between the ones we send--the swirling mass of cell phone calls and blackberry emails and text messages--it rides the waves of TV signals and radio-chit chat fuzz, peering down at us just like the fabled "Satellite of Love" sung by our grandfathers. Only this transmitter is invisible--flung far beyond the standard five senses, and yet in orbit with our very thoughts--it locks its razor sharp signal into the emotion flavored (happy cherry red? or feelin flat black?) docking station in the heart of the heart of our brains.
It's the message in the movies and the music--the one we hid from ourselves, it's in random acts of kindness and long stifled feelings of hope--
It's that which is everlasting in the shimmer of evening sun upon a river
The power of a sacrifice gladly made
A teenage rock anthem
A friendship overcoming betrayal
Love conquering all
