Well I'm getting there with those pesky lyrics for the second part of the Lighthouse Keeper called Retrieval.

Retrieval - Lighthouse Keeper Part 2 )  P Goodrich March 2018

This first section's lyrics are set against the arpeggio and backing voice - slow tempo / moody

Starting into the void, is getting to me, It's under my skin
Empty space is hollowing out my soul
Dreams of home, a lifetime far away, they crowd my mind
(and) make me realise I've got to go

I need to get away, I need to return, see people again
Or this place will surely drive me mad
I can ask, to be relieved from here, before the dark,
eats me whole, my mind, my soul, my life_________
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This second section is the main body of the song set against a busier section featuring bass/drums/synth and guitar with a bit of strings too

** High points of vocal pattern

Message sent, To request in-post retrieval
Now I wait, For a vessel to arrive
Too much cost, To re-route one from a star-lane **
In a pod, With my body just barely alive

Will I dream, When I'm in my cryo-chamber
Lost in time, As the stars go rushing by
Many miles, But al least I won't be lonely **
Every day, Getting closer to mankind

[riff]

Now I wait, And the waiting makes me older
So I work, As the days go ticking by
Ship on-route, And it comes with my replacement **
So I hope, For the spirit to survive

[Solo]

[riff]

Almost here, There's a transport on my star-chart
Swapping roles, I'll replace him in his pod
Then I'll go, And I'll leave him with the Lighthouse **
[Rundown back to quieter ending as he goes into the pod]
(So it's) good - bye to lone-li-ness
('Cause) I'm going home__________
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
final quiet section as he is about to enter cryogenic sleep
Just keep working, counting down the days
Until it is time to sleep, perchance to dream

At last, the moment, my replacement in post,
He was very kind to me, the training I guess
He closes the pod, the lights they dim,
A feeling of stillness and then .....

<breath> .... <breath> .............<breath>.......................<breath>    to fade
"Love and Life is all about connections"

Good lyrical start MrB. A couple of things that caught my attention on my first read....

(and) make me realise I've got to go ....I'm stumbling on the word "realize". It feels like it has too many syllables. Maybe...."make me know.....I've got to go."

and..

I can ask, to be retrieved from here....maybe "relieved"?

Cheers Len @Leonard Scaper , I'll take one of those changes for sure. I like 'relieved' as in 'relieved  from post" and I can use retrieval later in the song. 
Talking of which - I've got a few more words now. I'll edit the first post.

... and a bit of sneaky music too ;-)

It goes on a bit without the lyrics but you get the transition, bassline and that keyboard hook .... ;-)
A bit of harmony guitars for Lizzy fans too ;-)
Drums next to sort out :-)
