Stardust VI by robrey Stardust VI by robrey
Oil, 16 x 20 in 

Created for the Mythos show at Haven Gallery. I also documented the process of this painting for a workshop article in the current issue of ImagineFX Magazine.

“When I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us… Many people feel small… But I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars."

"There is a level of connectivity. That’s really what you want in life. You want to feel connected. You want to feel relevant. You want to feel like you’re participant in the goings on of activities and events around you. That’s precisely what we are just by being alive.”
-Neil deGrasse Tyson

[Intro]

[Pre-Chorus]
Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

[Verse 1]
(Feels like home)
As I wake from stasis
In a place that ain't the safest
How could I think space was vacant?
Take a look around at the trails I'm blazin'
A galactic-scale invasion
Lookin' for the home to stake our claim in
Get in my way, I'll take my aim and
Make your face into alien pavement

This train has left the station
Now I'll take these rails and break them
Dust off the sails and raise them
We may be way past saving
So if you have prayers say them
It's a Hail Mary play we're makin'
My people need no Shepherd
To keep their faith from shakin'
Even though I see no halos
Still feels like I'm reclaimin'

You know I'll always be by your side
When the chips are down, we'll survive
Now that my path is finally found
This ark will never go down

(Uh) I'm bored of sleep
Better wake me up, there's more to see
I'm pushin' off from shore to sea
Andromeda, what you got in store for me?
And I don't need Normandy
With my Tempest ready, I'll storm the beach
Need a Pathfinder? Just ask Ryder
Rewards of war - I'm sure to reap

[Chorus]
Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home
Just like a prayer
Your voice can take me there
And where you're takin' me
Remains a mystery
Just like a dream
You are not what you seem
We're not alone
I trust in you to take me home
(Take me home)

[Verse 2]
Stranded, left for dead
Get a grip then catch my breath
Now that my quest is set
I can unravel whatever the Remnant left
Unlock these ancient Vaults
On every planet I resurrect
Impacting gravity
I guess I'm having that Mass Effect
Environmental check
Haven't ever used this weapon yet
Caught up in a mess of Kett
I could've swept 'em up, instead I left 'em wrecked

With the Nexus depending on me
Better lock and load and then rev my jets
Never test my intelligence
I've got SAM to keep me at a level head
Any more cybernetic integration
Then I'll be one step from Geth
Voices I can't erase
Memories that I can't forget
Lost in hostile outer space
Let's test out this Remnant tech
Every species in this race
Is desperate for a new habitat
Legacies I must embrace
As the leader that I was never elected as

Let's go, I'm the kinda guy to
Control, both fire and ice
And I bolt, like a lightning strike
'Cuz I'm close enough to be nigh divine
And I show my worth, 'cuz I'm on the verge
Of purgin' virgin worlds of the cursed Scourge
And I'll leave these verses murdered
Worse than Reapers did Earth

[Chorus]
Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home
Just like a prayer
Your voice can take me there
And where you're takin' me
Remains a mystery
Just like a dream
You are not what you seem
We're not alone
I trust in you to take me

[Bridge]
You're part of something greater, it won't control us
A cosmic fate awaits you, but that won't hold us
Through thundering clouds of chaos
Hang on to my shoulders
We'll manifest from stardust, like supernovas

[Verse 3]
Normally I'm not nomadic
But I needed a change of scenery
Hospitality seems sporadic
And I'm far from earthy greenery
Time to plant my flag in planets
And my land shan't be seized from me
Even when I'm stranded, empty-handed
I can harness dark energy deep in me

Call me anomaly, one of a kind
Follow my calling, with all that I find
Got us a colony, starting a life
Unlocking Vaults, one at a time
Milky Way, gotten bored of
Andromeda, walk along her borders
I'm exploring every corner
For the resources I've been wanting more of

If you know my name
You'd better say your prayers
Get down on your knees
And beg your life be spared
Call me Madonna, 'cuz I'm paving the way
You should be honored
That you're walking on the trail that I blazed

[Chorus]
Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home
Just like a prayer
Your voice can take me there
And where you're takin' me
Remains a mystery
Just like a dream
You are not what you seem
It's a lonely road
I wonder why it feels like
Feels like home
