about

A trip to Pluto that ends in universal sadness for the man in love with the Ice Queen.

lyrics

In the far reaches beyond Neptune
An ancient world lies trapped in frozen ruin
The Ice Queen sings her lucid dreams
To passing comets, bound for the Kuiper Belt
Where all the sadness that the Solar System has ever felt
Goes to freeze

Climbing high above the clouds
I've heard her siren song and I want to help her out
And I think she'd spend a day with me down on planet earth - for what's it worth

40 years in a rocket
Hearing the Ice Queen's siren song
A space age century, no time is too long
He reaches her and bids her come along
'I tell her Ice Queen, come along with me. We'd be happy, beautiful and free. I'd take you by the sea.'

Opening the capsule door the Ice Queen screams and she is no more. And the Plutonium smoke explodes. Sent from 100 millions ago.
We are not me or she or them or it.
We are stardust making an exit (repeat)

Ice Queen where did you go?
No one gave me the memo
You would suffer such a fate, the atmosphere would make you sublimate.
I'm so lonely I'm gonna go back to your home, back to Pluto.
Where I'll watch all the comets come and go
One by one, soon, they'll all explode.
