Side by side slide by space and time
Yeah the Neil Armstrong telecasts of Nineteen Sixty-Nine
Proportion distortion I saw in those shoes
And I learned a kind of ego that I doubt I'll ever lose

It's nine lives to Rigel Five
Nine lives to Rigel Five
And I've waited nine lives for Rigel Five
With nothing to say when I arrive

Joan Jones proposed that we leave our homes
Like runaway gnomes in the twilight zone
They said, "baby, when you're grown it all means more"
I said, "let's get out the twister game and get down on all fours"

It's nine lives to Rigel Five
Nine lives to Rigel Five
And I've waited nine lives for Rigel Five
With nothing to say when I arrive

I know a problem that physics won't resolve
A cover that acid won't dissolve
A place that's just too far, I think, for us to go

Now is it wise to have a hope so strong
For real-time answers to real-world wrongs
Oh Susanna if you've got to cry for me
Send me back to Alabama with a banjo on my knee

And nine lives to Rigel Five
Nine lives to Rigel Five
And I've waited nine lives for Rigel Five
With nothing to say but goodbye
