Might as well be cold as hell,
this mission was a hard sell.
Blasting off and out of here,
it's been a long time since it was clear,
a long, long time. I packed my bags
but this feeling only serves to drag
me back to earth. Star-gazers
and out of this world trail blazers
are best served in solitary pursuits
not rocketing around in space suits,
Yet still, I'm luckier than some.
I could have wound up Major Tom!
