I am sure some of you know that most songs I have uploaded over the past year have been tied into a single story arc, this is the first song I have written in over a year that has nothing to do with that story. The title, "Captain Bella Lind", any Alastair Reynolds fan will recognize as it is the main character in his novel "Pushing Ice".

And while in many ways this song is about the ungodly struggles of that novel, this song is about myself as much as it is about her, it was just one of those songs I needed to write, I couldn't do anything else with music until I had done this.

That being said, there is a lot of cool stuff in here, spacey tone solos, odd proggy riffs, a big ambient instrumental section, and all that good stuff. So I hope you enjoy!

Captain Bella Lind
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

From the weight of her past
She can hear them whisper
In the thick veils, shrouded, in total darkness

Haven't you failed?
Why do you persist?

Isolated in the years of the iron sky
The echoes of time immortal
Slowly eating reality

You have failed!
You must not persist!
You will fail!
You cannot persist!

A billion years from their star
Locked inside a time slipstream
The last remnants of the humans
Stand on the cosmic precipice
Eternity remains uncertain
And reality begins to slip away
Trapped inside a shell of herself
A step too close to the abyss

She will face the dark
Challenge the demons of the void
Stare into the blinding absence
And tread forward with vigilance

I cannot allow myself to die
Even if its the only thing I want

Pioneering the last frontier
Touching a truly alien mind
Knowing what cannot be known
And never buckling beneath its weight

Captain Bella Lind
The benefactor of time

Captain Bella Lind
Alone at the end of time

As the future became
Eerily all too calm
The darkness would return

Unknown forces would strive to see
Our demise for their own needs
But I am too f****** stubborn to die

Faced with extinction
Yet again
The captain
Will she prevail?

The loss of their world
Yet again
The humans
Would they prevail?

Captain Bella Lind
The benefactor of time

Captain Bella Lind
Alone at the end of time
