"This was when Billy first came unstuck in time. His attention began to swing grandly through the full arc of his life, passing into death, which was violet light. There wasn’t anybody else there, or any thing. There was just violet light - and a hum."
--Kurt Vonnegut, "Slaughterhouse-Five"


Now here's a tune for everyone
No more fun when day is done
Nowhere to hide
Nowhere to run
The purple hum is gonna come
The purple hum is gonna come
The purple hum is gonna come
