One More Astronaut

by I Mother Earth

One more astronaut in black skin of universe

One more travellin' man with heavy tired eyes, feeling cold

Thinking around the clock of drinking on the job

Of the powdered food and piss bags, never having sex and growing old

/ E - / - riff / :


Headspace...alive and painless, weightless and almost sane

I close my eyes, I become the sky

Headspace...alone and shameless, can't wait to find the faces

I left behind in a troubled time, back home

/ E - G - / D - A - / 1st / D - - E /

It gets so lonely you know, weeks and months alone

Chasing sleep and space junk and the dying stars I've known and loved

Through true decline of the five billion minds or so

Through mudslides and earthquakes, the blue one holds and rolls along


One more astronaut in endless old universe with

One more second chance at wondering why he's here at all


{as refrain}

Bold are the ones who come over

The line to fall over the horizon, never ones to fade away

Then it hit me, this cosmic pull and energy

It kinda makes me wonder if I'll ever make it back home
