lyrics

Pen the poem as it appears on the page / Stare awestruck at the blazing stars / You can never escape, but you can see this tiny sliver of our galaxy

How presumptuous we are / To even think to call this this is ours / Can you even imagine what the hell must be just out of our reach?

How can you expect me to just sit here quietly / When there’s a whole Universe inside my head and we all know there’s at least one more outside of it? / But still, you keep me caged / Ask me the same questions every day / But I will not, no / I will not cooperate / I will not cooperate / I will not cooperate

How long does our kind last? / When do the stars collapse? / If you die then you are nothing / And soon will be the day when at last you are forgotten

The Sun engulfs the Earth / And everything is scorched / Billions of years of history long since passed / Nothing left, nothing left, nothing left

And after all that / After the Sun explodes / Everything that once was is dark and cold / The timing is irrelevant when time stops / And the Universe dies

How can you expect me to just sit here quietly / When there’s a whole Universe inside my head and we all know there’s at least one more outside of it? / But still, you keep me caged / Ask me the same fucking questions every day / But I will not, no / I will not cooperate / I will not cooperate / I will not cooperate

My name is Kostyn. I am a student, writer, musician, creator, appreciator.
Here is some music I made.
Some of it will show up reincarnated in other projects, some of it will not. For this reason the songs here will likely be fairly bare.
Welcome.
I write and sing for The Polar Bear is Mine.
