This is the first animation I upload on Newgrounds.
It's based on a poem with the same name by Ingmar Heytze. It's about the longing for extra-terrestrial life. The poem is recited by a friend of mine Boss John Carpenter.
Translation for those who so desire:
Man 1: What's keeping the universe.
Man 2: It promised.
Now that stargazers unperturbed
stare into the empty space,
voyagers like steel lints
soar through a dark vacuum
and dishes gather white noise,
we know: we are alone.
But those willing to see in eleven dimensions
dream up creatures of crystal-
ears large as cornfields
hear each silent night
their laughter from distant systems
in a glittering universe.
One breathes in, one breathes out,
one waits -
It's a rather poor translation, but it's very difficult to translate poetry. I hear not everyone likes it when something that isn't in English is uploaded here, so that's why I did it anyway.
