When we go out in space
some of us will go further.
When we go out of space
some of us will explore the deep.

The deep humanity,
you might think they’d go crazy.
The deep humanity,
you might think they’d be strange.

We know well that evolution
stagnates as you migrate.
So when we go to outer space,
the deep humans, they’ll remain.

But way back home on Earth,
we’ll shift and we’ll change.
Yes, way back home on Earth,
we’ll evolve to other things.

As we go out in to space,
what wonders will we see?
Strange unruly kingdoms, yes,
or perhaps water things.

Oceans of living flesh
roiling and tumbling on the ground.
Seas of populations, yes,
struggling to just move around.

The deep humanity
gets to see all these things.
The deep humanity
it remains the most human, yes.

As way back home on Earth,
changes keep percolating.
Way back on Earth,
mutations and strangeness arise.

There are advantages
of trying new things,
exploring and conquering
the people we have been.

And so the deep humanity,
if they ever come to you and me,
oh, yes, that humanity,
will find we’ve gone strange.

Perhaps we won’t be truly odd.
Perhaps we will all still be alive.
Perhaps the churches will still be here.
And, perhaps, they will somehow survive.

Changing, evolving,
as humanity changes,
twisting to something
unruly and strange.

Somehow that deep humanity
exposed to all those outer things,
somehow that deep humanity
will remain the most human then.
