The Pale Blue Dot (Part II) - Lyrics

This imagined self-importance,
The delusion that we have
Privileged position in the Universe,
Are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in this
Enveloping cosmic dark.

In our obscurity, in all this vastness,
There is no sign or clue
That help will come
From elsewhere
To save us from ourselves

Visit? Yes. Settle? Not yet...
For the moment the Earth is where
We make our stand...
Astronomy has been claimed
As a humbling and
Character-building, building experience.

In our obscurity, in all this vastness,
There is no sign or clue
That help will come
From elsewhere
To save us from ourselves

There is perhaps no better demonstration
Of the folly of human conceits
Than this distant image of our tiny world.

It emphasizes our responsibility
To deal more kindly with one another,
And to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot,
The only home we've ever known.
