the galaxy belongs to us

The galaxy belongs to us
And find for you the key, I must
Four guardians stand at the gate
besta negras lie in wait
Trespass with me you will, I trust

Their eyes burn down into our eyes
They speak in riddles, laced with lies
Snakes writhe and whisper of mistrust —
The galaxy belongs to us

The Oracle is bound and gagged
Our angel lies face down and stabbed
Somehow, my dear, we’ll navigate
And towards the key we’ll gravitate
Together we will forge, and thus
The galaxy belongs to us
