But if space-time is expanding,
Just what’s it expanding into?
What’s beyond the edge of
The universe that we view?
Just more and more that we’ll never see,
Each frame of reference is valid.
Each star at the center of everything
Regardless of how much is added.
So I might be forgiven for saying
That I stand in a special place,
That I am the center of everything,
Of energy, matter, and space.
