"Asthenia" as written by Thomas Delonge, Mark Hoppus and Travis L. Barker....
Last night it came as a picture
With a good reason, a warning sign
This place is void of all passion
If you can imagine it's easy if you try
Believe me I failed this effort
I wrote a reminder this wasn't a vision
This time where are you Houston
Is somebody out there will somebody listen

Should I go back should I go back should I
I feel alone and tired
Should I go back should I go back should I
I hope I won't forget you

My head is made up of memories
Most of them useless delusions
This room is bored of rehearsal
And sick of the boundaries
I miss you so much

Should I go back should I go back should I
I feel alone and tired
Should I go back should I go back should I
This time I don't want to
Should I go back should I go back should I
I feel alone and tired
Should I go back should I go back should I
I hope I won't forget you

Should I go back should I go back should I
I feel alone and tired
Should I go back should I go back should I
This time I don't want to
Should I go back should I go back should I
I feel alone and tired
Should I go back should I go back should I
I hope I won't forget you

    General CommentBest song on the album in my opinion. The lyrics really do express the feeling of lonliness, depression, and the ultimate boredom of a person void of companionship.

    General CommentI don't think NASA would be very happy if he decided not to return their space shuttle.

    General Commenti love this.
    i especially love the way "so" is stressed in "sick of the boundaries, i miss you so much".

    General CommentI think Blink 182 has a lot of songs that don't seem deep but if you are a true fan you see into the lyrics and realize how much meanings a lot of their songs have just like this song. I effin love it. (:

    General CommentThis song doesnt sound so deep but i think it really is...Its about a guy in space looking down at the world thinking about how bad it has become with crime etc....and hes wondering is it worth even going back to this place or am i better off here without all that bad stuff

    General CommentIt's about doubt, lonliness, fear... the feelings you get when you're alone enough to see the world from an outside perspective as opposed to that of being someone inside it.

    General CommentAwesome song.. It's somewhat creepy. The whole premise is good tho. Tom says in the album booklet that he just thought of a guy floating in a space shuttle out in space deciding whether or not to come back to Earth or not.. you know, if it's worth it.

    General Commentamazing song. been a fan since they were just blink and I thought they were headed in a downward spiral once i heard Enema, but this cd fucking amazes me. They have done a complete 180 and used their intelligence not to talk about dick and fart jokes (which is funny) - but rather have created a dark, emotional album. I love it.

    General CommentI love this song, in fact my domain name is from it. I think this song can apply to a lot more than an astronaut. "This time, where are you houston? Is somebody out there, will somebody listen?" I love that part, and if you really listen - it's also about a lonely person.

    General CommentI think it' one of the best songs on this album (if i have to pick any) I love the sound of the guitar and the way tom sings on this. i like the whole space theme and how he could imagine it from that point of view. it's different... but not unexpected seeing as tom is a trekkie and all
