"Astronaut" as written by and Eric Earley....
Now if you're gonna play your games with me
Like the leaf in the top of a tree
You better watch your step when you're comin' back down
From the city on out to the sea
And if your brothers come after me
With their horses so wild and so free
I'll be waitin' at the gate in a terrible state
With the man who holds the key
And he'll treat you quite carelessly
For he knows my face from a previous place
From a country in a foreign land
Throwin' dice in a game of chance on the sand
But I lost my cool and fate loves a fool
Now I'm standin' on the edge of the pack
In my spacesuit hopin' that this women will call me at last
'Cause I'm an astronaut on the shores of this grand illusion
And I'm fallin down at the sound of this beating heart
Yeah, this beatin' heart
Yeah, this beatin' heart

Your friends all tell ya that ya gotta make a change
Gotta make this fake in so many kinda ways
Snap to the trees from the trees to the earth
From the earth to your grave from the grave to your birth
Your heart's been rappin' with ?
But the world ain't yours 'cause this heart's been sold
Gonna pay your lovers way and the ship it sails today

Whoa my mind now we're rollin' by and by
Got my children to light the way
Whoa my mind now we're rollin' by and by
Got my brothers to light the way
Whoa my mind now we're rollin' by and by
Got my sisters to light the way
Gotta pave your lovers way
And the ship it sails today

So if you're gonna play your games with me
Better use some real chicery
Better get smart 'cause that lock on your heart
It ain't as heavy as it used to be
In the land without no gravity
In this windless place on the edge of space
Where the saints and the sinners have passed
With the dead satellites and the trash
In my spacesuit hopin' that this woman would call me at last
'Cause I'm an astronaut on the shores of this grand illusion
And I'm fallin' down at the sound of this beating heart
Yeah, this beatin' heart
Yeah, this beatin' heart

    Lyric Correctionhello! I've got some lyric corrections :)

    Now if you're gonna play your games with me
    Like a leaf in the the top of the tree
    You better watch your step when you're coming back down
    From the city on out to the sea

    And if your brothers come after me
    With their horses so wild and so free
    I'll be waiting at the gate in a terrible state
    With the man who holds the key
    And he'll treat you quite carelessly

    For he knows my face from a previous place
    From a country in a foreign land
    Throwing dice in a game of chance on the sand
    But I lost my cool, and fate loves a fool
    Now I'm standing on the edge of the past
    In my spacesuit hoping that this woman will call me at last

    'Cause I'm an astronaut on the shores of this grand illusion
    And I'm falling down at the sound of this beating heart
    Yeah, this beating heart
    Yeah, this beating heart

    Your friends all tell you that you gotta make a change
    Gotta make this break in so many kind of ways
    The sky to the trees, from the trees to the earth
    From the earth to your grave, from the grave to your birth

    Your heart's been heavy with the silver and the gold
    But the gold ain't yours 'cause his heart's been sold
    For to pay your lover's way
    And the ship it sails today

    Oh my, my now we're rollin' by and by
    Got my children to light the way
    Oh my, my now we're rollin' by and by
    Got my brothers to light the way
    Oh my, my now we're rollin' by and by
    Got my sisters to light the way
    You gotta pay your lover's way
    And the ship it sails today

    So if you're gonna play your games with me
    Better use some real trickery
    You better get smart 'cause that lock on your heart
    It ain't as heavy as it used to be
    In a land without no gravity

    In this windless place, on the edge of space
    Where the saints and the sinners have passed
    With the dead satellites and the trash
    In my spacesuit hoping that this woman will call me at last

    'Cause I'm an astronaut on the shores of this grand illusion
    And I'm falling down at the sound of this beating heart
    Yeah, this beating heart
    Yeah, this beating heart

    General CommentI think the line is definitely:

    "So if you're gonna play your games with me
    Better use some real CHICORY
    You better get smart 'cause that lock on your heart
    It ain't as heavy as it used to be
    In a land without no gravity"

    It definitely sounds like he's saying "Chicory", like the flower. Wikipedia says, "It was also believed to be able to open locked doors, according to European folklore." So, it actually makes sense in terms of the lyrics too.
