I fired my ray gun into the sky

by dm gillis

the mayor will come to my funeral
and reveal that I was a Martian
where I walked the atmosphere withered
where I walked is now a lie

but celebrate my presence
in this place of physics and hate
blue as the sky will make you
upon the horizon by and by

the lies that I told you were relative
they warped space, they made me cry
knowing truth is not bound by gravity
I fired my ray gun into the sky
