I wanna go I wanna get up and go man, I need a lift off and I crave the sky
I've been chomping at the bit for several weeks now, I'm so ready I need to get high
My adrenaline's up beyond the scales man‚ you couldn't kill me cause I'd never feel a thing
I might seem like I'm ??? to you and thats cool and hear they're really singing

It's gonna feel so good
like we always knew it would
In this glorious pursuit
we're getting in our suits

Won't you fly us
past the bright shining stars
Won't you fly us
to the X-3 pulsar

There's nothing wrong there's nothing wrong with all this brute force flinging metal to the eye in the sky
Inertial forces mass pulling skywards fighting gravitys holy(?) nuclei
I'm gonna try I'm gonna try and make it matter, theres no excuses at the level we're at
We'll fly the flag and I know we're representing humanity and democracy and all that

But hey!

It's gonna feel so good
like we always knew it would
Cause in this glorious pursuit
we're getting in our suits

Won't you fly us
to the bright shining stars
Won't you fly us
past the moon and past Mars
Won't you fly us
Won't you fly us
Won't you fly us
to the X-3 pulsar

??? it's hotter than a pistol
A high energy ray gun in the swan
It's really true it's made of quarks man, I guess it's just not your standard
neutron that's at the core of this wonderful creation
A gas sucking binary star
Thirty seven thousand light years, man that's really way too far

Won't you fly us
past the bright shining stars
Won't you fly us
past the moon and past Mars
Won't you fly us
to the bright shining stars
Won't you fly us
past the moon and past Mars
Won't you fly us
past the bright shining stars
Won't you fly us
to the X-3 pulsar
Won't you fly us
Won't you fly us
Won't you fly us
Won't you fly us
