Draw the curtain, look, you're only sleeping
Or is this only what the other you is dreaming?
Hard to take
Ashen features unmistakably your own
Familiar posture, recast in skin and bone
Person from today
Here is you in 2082
Remove your helmet, first equalize the pressure
No, but first, take readings to be sure
The atmosphere is safe
Yes, it's safe
As the ancient one cranes his neck to look
You see his hand's been replaced with a hook
But it's clear you're very much alive
No, it's 2240
No, it's 3415
How can you still be living?
What does this mean?
You must honor and respect the older fellow
Even as you suffocate him with his pillow
Though you're strong
He was wise
There is much you can learn from the sage
And though you'll leave and travel back to your own age
You will meet again, you two
What was the look he gave intended to convey?
Was there something else he was trying to say?
It will all be revealed to you
