houston we don't understand
the rescue's launched, hardly complete
we lost it again
we lost it again
we cannot locate its pride
we have not found its strength
in spite of endless search
in spite of every mission

yeah, thats the way things go somedays
they will come to take you away
how i wanted to be more
than the man i am today
just when we embarked on space
its design came crashing down
far from conclusion
far from its objective

traveling by stereo
its suspension: time and space
your best, your worst
as you journey through
the system you've defined
body and mind

thats the way we fall
thats the way we fall
thats the way we fall
thats the way we falter

    General Commenttekim's right. Perhaps, reflecting on a life of shortcomings and dissapointments. It's Bad Astronaut, so science and space exploration metaphors are a given. Connect the dots (missions = aspirations, etc..) and the meaning is in there somewhere...

    General Commentspace here, is meant to be the Age of the author(mabye joey). sometimes unpredicted things happen in space and you can not get control of it. this is how he discribes life struggle. - "the journey through ths system you defined" - its your life, do something about it!

    thx mr. cape
