  1. Hmmmmm, nice concept. I think that I will open up with an instrumental.

    Picture the scene, the disorientated astronaut awakens, believes all is OK and he has reached his destination, perhaps is in orbit around a new and strange planet, starts exploring his immediate surroundings, checking various displays, screens readouts etc and then slowly begins to realise that his ship is in a pretty bad way.

  2. The synopsis on IMDb says “Two crew members are stranded on a spacecraft and quickly – and horrifically – realize they are not alone. Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It’s pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the ship. They can’t remember anything: Who are they? What is their mission?”
    So maybe this would fit the point just after they wake up.

  3. I ain’t gonna work here no more
    I ain’t gonna work here no more
    Honey, come and rescue me
    ‘Cos I ain’t gonna work here no more

    Our hero / appetiser’s letter of resignation c/o David Byrne – A Million Miles Away

    • *I took some poetic licence with the lyrics there to tie it in more snugly with the narrative, in case you’re taking notes. It’s actually ‘dance with’, not ‘rescue’, but he ain’t going to get much dancing done, is he?

  4. Obliquely ‘Everybody Knows this is Nowhere’

    Everybody seems to wonder
    What it’s like down here
    I gotta get away
    from this day-to-day
    running around,
    Everybody knows
    this is nowhere.
