SPACE STATION      BY JOHN FLYNN

HERE IN THE SPACE STATION TIME GOES SO SLOW
STARE OUT THE WINDOW AT THE WORLD BELOW
CHECK ALL YOUR EMAILS AND WATCH SOME TV
FORGET FOR A WHILE ABOUT THE GRAVITY AS YOU’RE

FLOATING FLOATING
SEAL UP THE HATCH TIGHTEN THE LATCH
AS YOUR FLOATING

HERE IN THE SPACE STATION SNUG AS A BUG
SIP COFFEE HOT FROM YOUR ZERO-G MUG
GO THROUGH YOUR CHECKLIST OF ASTRONAUT CHORES
PUT ON YOUR SPACESUIT WHEN YOU GO OUTDOORS WHERE YOU’RE

FLOATING FLOATING
SAFELY WITHIN YOUR SILVER SKIN
YEAH YOU’RE FLOATING

LIFE ON THE SPACE STATION SURE TAKES ITS TOLL
FIVE O’CLOCK BRIEFINGS FROM MISSION CONTROL
TELL YOU THERE AIN’T MUCH ON EARTH THEY CAN DO
‘CAUSE THEY’RE ALL LOCKED UP IN THEIR SPACE STATIONS TOO AND THEY’RE

FLOATING FLOATING
BREAKING YOUR HEART SIX FEET APART
THEY’RE ALL FLOATING

HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM
HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM
HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM, YEAH


HERE WITH THE SPACE STATION WALLS CLOSING IN
TAKE DEEP BREATHS OF RECYCLED OXYGEN
FIRE UP YOUR ENGINES AT LEAST ONCE A DAY
OTHERWISE YOUR ORBIT STARTS TO DECAY
HERE IN THE SPACE STATION TRY TO STAY COOL
‘TIL SOME ROCKET SCIENTIST BUILDS A CAPSULE
THAT WE CAN TAKE TO GET US OUT OF HERE
BEFORE WE BURN UP IN THE ATMOSPHERE WHILE WE’RE


FLOATING FLOATING
THOUGH EACH DAY YOU FIND MORE OLD FRIENDS DECLINE YOU KEEP
FLOATING
WHERE STARS SHINE LIKE TEARS IN YOUR EYES

FLOATING FLOATING
YOU’RE NOT ALONE IN THE ASTRAL ZONE YOU’RE JUST
FLOATING
WHERE STARS FALL LIKE TEARS FROM YOUR EYES
