Mother


Watching over us through the long, dark night

Mother, your voice wakes me from my long sleep

Mother asks us to explore something new

Why Mother, did you let Ash open the door?

Drive this thing out of your body, Mother

Everyone is gone and I am leaving you Mother

This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo

Signing off
