The song "Bliss" by Muse (see below for link)
Bird In the Sky
And this is how it felt.
He could feel, more than see, the stars expanding; the planets rotating; himself falling. Plunging into the black, supernovas and burning dust passing by his wheeling body. Arms spread wide to embrace the plummet of freedom.
Light the color of rose petals rose to meet him as his clothes pulled at his body, and the constant shuuuuh of rushing wind pressed and swelled around his eardrums.
He couldn't keep his eyes open, the speed tore at his eyelashes and coaxed pricks of water from his tearducts, so he submitted to the feeling, deprived of his senses, and just felt.

Notes: Whoops, this is a day late (and super short!). This past week was a trying experience of just one thing on top of the next, so I spent my Friday after work finishing First Lord's Fury because I absolutely refused to do anything else, just so I would have enough time to decompress.
Title taken from the song "Feeling Good," originally written by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse and covered by Nina Simone, Muse, and approximately 20 other people.
