Draw the curtain, look, you're only sleeping
Or is this only what the
Other you is dreaming?
Either way 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, it's 2105

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 in 2082

What was the look
He have intended to convey?
Was there something else he was trying to say?
It will all be revealed to you in 2082
