There's only one course of action
Left for me to take
I've tried every switch selection
That might control this state
I think for my protection
I better make it straight
Into Ejection
Better tell Base
That I think it's a case
For Ejection
Explode into Space
Protect my Face

The radar screen's projection
Tells me I'm too late
To make a course correction
I'm about to meet my fate
No time for reflection
I'd better make it straight
Into Ejection
Bust through the sky
The air rushing by
It's a case of goodbye
I'm too fast to die

When a ship meets with destruction
The Captain stays to drown
But no tin contraption
Is going to drag me down
My reference intersection
Tells me that I'm bound
For Ejection
Eight times my weight
I've got to escape
Only one move to make
Abandon this crate

    General CommentWhat does it mean? Not much really. It was written by Robert Calvert for his 'Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters' theme album, but is used a lot by Hawkwind (who he was an occasional member of). It basically indicates the problems pilots had with the German version of the Lockheed Starfighter (The F104-G). You had to be on drugs to want to fly it, and all too often pilots had to eject to save themselves.
