 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Moving into darkness 
The city lights 
Fading to black 
I lay upon the rubber 
Of the belt 
Transporting me

I see the stars, billions of natural cosmic pinpricks, free from the barrier of light pollution 

Green shoots 
Of grass 
Are growing thicker 
Passing on either side 
I hear the wind rustle 
Making them dance 
In scattered time 

Glowing violet and white Triteleia mirror the bright specks from above
Enshrining my exiled sojourn as it nears its end 

Then I'm tossed to the ground
