They wore the suits and sat in the spaceship
And they kept their mouths dry and shut
Breaking the atmosphere never felt the way they thought it should
But it still felt good enough

Layed in your dreams the Soviets teased you
with red all around white and blue
And you were unwell from the dregs of your failures
So you turned your eyes to the moon

And you made the people proud
You made the people proud

Apollo, I�d like to have known your true path
The men that you carried were convincing enough
And the truth can lie heavy on the tip of your tongue
It�s hard to admit to these things we have done
It�s hard to admit to these things

Silver and Gold all the world waited for you
And they turned their ears to the sound
One giant step for man kind you moved forward
And you made the people proud
You made the people proud

I am persuaded when reading the paper
That this is war, this is war
I am confused how can tying my shoes
be such a terrible thing

You made the people proud
You made the people proud

You made it look easy to put them at ease
You told them the things they already believed
Despite all the demons that pulled on your sleeve
You made the people proud
You made the people proud
