The Life of Perfect Creatures

The first Earthling sent into orbit was a dog named Laika. She didn't know that they had no intention of bringing her home.

The Life of Perfect Creatures

Chorus
I'll be sent into the sky
On a stack of steel and flame
Though I won't understand why
Everyone will know my name

Perfect creatures overhead
Tracing out an orbit's line
They're the first that we shall send
Perfect creatures for all time

Verse1
Found astray on a cold, cold street
Found a way to complete the destiny of me
A way to burn a path into the sky


Chorus

Verse2
Now the light from the outside's blocked
Now it's dark I'm without a window next to me
I'm afraid but I can't stop what I can't see

Verse3
When I fall back down to earth
A light in the sky, and my transformation complete now
As ash and dust, I will touch your sleeping brow

Chorus

Wow, epic. That's some guitar solo!

Songs about Laika always make me sad. I really like the title.

You've got a really good voice, too.

Very cool. Reminds me of Hum.

Thanks, both of you. I'm glad you like it.

Personally I think it's one of the best songs I've ever been lucky enough to come up with.
