about

Our souls are born and bent for the eternal, meant for more than only the pain and struggle of life on this planet alone. I wrote this one mainly because of my love of sci-fi and space travel.

lyrics

Man's greatest spaceflight will match eternity's gaze; maiden voyage for the great beyond, it's a wonder you can't shake. Sunspots cutting all transmissions as I can't feel my feet, back home they are cheering me on through their analog TVs. Glory the explorers, laud the ideal of the brave. I'm at five percent on manual on my solo escapade. We're all gonna live in outer space one day. Our sojourner souls for another world await. Questions from the radio warn me of the craze, that I may find no answers up there; I've been flying for a hundred days. There's a bright light that's blinding from this craft with its metal sides, but with a hard glass shield and an iron will, I eclipse the queen of the tide. I am just an astronaut with no genius in my frame as anti gravity disorients even the soundest minds in space. We're all gonna live in outer space one day. Our sojourner souls for another world await. Upon the last atmospheric orbital I once was clear. I saw the black and blue and swirling gray of insecurity, pain, and fear, but the stars that I passed up there all adhere to a different time. Pointless hurt I see from my windshield upon reentry fell aside. You're not gonna believe this! Come in captain, do you read? Repeat, repeat, we come in peace. You're not gonna believe this! We're all gonna live in outer space one day. Our sojourner souls for another world await. We're all gonna live in outer space one day. Our sojourner souls for another world await.
