I’ve Always Known I’ll Die Alone

The Ballad of James Tiberius Kirk

 

Life is a mountain

No one asked to climb

God is a busy being

Who’s running short on time

 

Lost a brother, lost a friend

Lost my son In the bitter end

And so I climb with foolish pride

Up this rocky mountainside

 

And even if I fall

I’ll feel no fear at all

 

Life’s but a dream

I’ve always known

I’ll die alone

 

A voyage home

I’ve always known

I’ll make alone

 

The sky is a ribbon

That washes away time

And God knows I’m telling

A whale of a tale this time

 

Lost another ship In the end

Lost my true compass My friend

But my soul can be redeemed

By one sacrifice it seems

 

I’ll make it right

There’s still some fight

 

Left in me

The day is ours

I ride alone


I touch the sky

I say “oh my”

I’m not alone

 

I’m afraid you won’t join me

In the undiscovered country

Don’t shed a tear I’m always here

The voyager of the final frontier

 

The sky’s my home

I’ve always known

I’ll die alone

 

You take the conn

I’ll soon be gone

I’ll die alone


Time has no meaning

In the places that I’m from

So I find my heart beating

To a very different drum

 

I’d give my life, I’d give my soul

I’d let the dice roll

One more time in the center seat

A Kobyashi Maru cheat

 

And even if I win

I’m still older than sin

 

Life’s but a dream

I’ve always known

I’ll die alone

 

A voyage home

I’ve always known

I’ll make a lone

 

LIfe’s not a dream

I’ve always known

I’ll die alone

 

I’ve always known

The sky’s my home

I’m not alone
