Lyrics:

Little sister, I’d such little wisdom
To share before you ran away
Even moments you were sour contend with
My sweetest memories retained

Not born in supernovas to behave like this
Maybe she knew and that’s why she is where she is
Every city in the world‘s a candidate
Dream in the clouds, searching for you
Wake up alone and airsick

Little sister, never mind a victor
And never mind a Golden Age
Where are we?
The only certain answer:
Between umbilical and grave
