Interstellar Homesick Blues
Heywood's in the spaceship
Mixing up the medicine
Just a lonely astronaut
Thinking bout vanilla coke
In the vastness of space, time no longer gets in your way, if you don't orbit your sun, you don't count years. Dr. Heywood Floyd was homesick. He longed for the aroma of a cool vanilla cola. Soon he was flailing in released distillates, lavender flowers and cypress needles, clumps of clay and vanilla beans, memories of distant times, leftovers in little tubes that now reacted exuberantly in the weightlessness of his space shuttle, absolutely everything seemed out of control. The euphoric eucalyptus cypresses that shot giggling through the capsule drummed like luminous rain against the thin metal doors, which began to smoke and glow and stew the rubber joints.
Jump down a manhole
Light yourself a candle
Then, as the vanilla beans hissed and evaporated to form warm clouds, a cola water ice bag burst and sent brownish beads sparkling. For quite a while the particles raged through the interstellar vehicle like cool colorful flashing particles. Heywood took a nose of clay, descended into a wooden box of thought, to vanish into smoke under vanilla, on incense sticks in space.
"Voyager - Rose Bridge" opens with an absolute spectacle of scent molecules. The ethereal green, slightly citrusy cypress is still most palpable in this, smoke and metal, sometimes glowing, sometimes cool, are constant troublemakers, incense-like gum notes show up only briefly, the cola aroma is perceptible with some camillic lavender underneath and emerging vanilla, later combines with the cypress, bright, fresh and luminous, before the scent retreats more and more to dark wood and light smoke, reminiscent of earthy-sandy incense in the drydown.
