Absolute Zero

Hornsby, Bruce
Time is stopped
And I'm floating there on air
I can watch myself, my head is elsewhere
I'm suspended, suspended in mid-air
But surprise, surprise I'm still here so there
Cognition is a billion years ago somewhere
Let's slip out of this life we know, into some timeless repose

Hey come on let's go
Down to 273 below
Let's go sliding down the scale
Way down, down beyond the veil
I'll be feeling fine at absolute zero

Memory, identity, on another self-plane
And you will be sustained (with cryopreservatives)
Robotize, enzymes, nucleotides, in time
Vitrification
Brain-edit, you will get it, if you let it
Frozen

Hey come on let's go
Down to 273 below
Let's go sliding down the scale
Way down, down beyond the veil

Time re-starts
Another chance, maybe better next time
We'll be minus a hundred and ten
Maybe that'll do just fine
Low temps, slow metabolism down and then
We will stop the gradual slide
For centuries end on end
Frozen to solid
For a hundred years and then emerge
You will re-encounter yourself
Oh what a lovely fantasy turn

Hey come on let's go
Down to 273 below
Let's go sliding down the scale
Way down, down beyond the veil
