lyrics

There are countless suns and countless earths all rotating round their suns in exactly the same way as the planets of our system.
We see only the suns because they are the largest bodies and are luminous.
The countless worlds in the universe are no worse and no less inhabited than our earth. For it is utterly unreasonable to suppose that those teeming worlds which are as magnificent as our own, perhaps more so, and which enjoy the fructifying rays of a sun just as we do, should be uninhabited and should not bear similar or even more perfect inhabitants than our earth.
Destroy the theories that the earth is the centre of the universe! Open the door through which we can look out into the limitless, unified firmament... show us that the other worlds float in an ethereal ocean like our own!
Take comfort, the time will come when all men will see as I do.
When all men will see as I do.
