Blast off! Up to the stars we go,
And leave behind everything I used to know.
Somebody’s giving me a whole lot of money to do
What I think I want to.
So why am I still feeling blue?
O what a time though...
Goddamn! Get your head out of your hand.
Here's to all the times we're gonna have.
Cooped up for a year with the two best-looking babes I've seen all year.
Get me another bottle of beer!
Cause I'm feeling fine.

Go ahead waste your head
We've got the time. I hope you don't object If I
Speak my mind.

(Robot)
"Don't forget the purpose of the mission,
Or Nomis will get swallowed by It's sun.
Each one of you is a top graduate of the Star Corps Academy,
It's up to you reach for a dream...
O what a time though!"

Go ahead and waste your life
I'm still in fear.
I hope you don’t object if I
Crack another beer.

Hold on, who is it here that I see?
Wasn't she a she a favorite bitch in the academy?
I don't know if I wanna lead on this woman,
You know I've done that before.
She's actually a good girl,
Or at least a cheap ho...

    General CommentI love this song, especially the robot voice! All versions of this song do cut off, which is unfortunate...I'd love to hear the other demos too!

    General CommentThis is a great opening to Songs For the Black Hole. It makes me want know the rest of the story. It's a conversation between two guys who are about to take off into space to complete the mission mentioned by the robot. One of them is reluctant to go, and the other is outwardly excited. The whole "who is this I see" part is when they realize one of the two woman accompanying them was a love interest of the reluctant guy at the academy they just graduated from.

    General CommentBy the way, did anyone notice what eventually became the El Scorcho rift during the last verse? Cool stuff.
