I wake up like a comet
Dizzy form the re-entry
And I'm on fire
I'm on fire
Do the dishes make the bed
Do the math inside my head
But it still comes out ones and zeros

So I took a look and noticed that your rocket wasn't tucked inside my bubble
This morning
Put my helmet on and took a deep breath of your super-precious oxygen
And walked around the launch pad

I can't believe
I can't believe
That nothing's gunna happen
That nothing's gunna happen here
I can't believe
I can't believe
The chances are lookin
The chances are lookin slim this year

Watch the count-down go from T minus something to whatever comes after that
And thought about the way
The super-nova shines like the colors in your hair and I'm sorry that I'm not there
But this is for the good of the universe

I looked down and see the world get smaller as I get a little colder
As I reach for the satellite phone
Gotta tell ya baby
Space is the place
But it's never gunna be home
cuz you're not there

(chorus)

I wake up like a comet
Dizzy from the re-entry
And I'm on fire
I'm on fire

    General CommentThis song is on the Drive thru records compilation, another year on the streets, 2.

    Most people have heard of the benjamins, but you have to find the kids that are actually interested in music.

    But not many people will hear about them ever again, since they broke up awhile ago.

    General CommentDoes anybody know why they broke up? They would have been so gr8! Interesting how Drive-Thru hasn't removed them from their band list though. Also, ne1 know where I can find their songs "Sunday Drive" and "She's Dead"? Cheers.
