The solar panel's shining face
is smiling back at me
Twisting off into the sun
It's okay to be lonely

All my missions float away
I never trained too hard
I'm so caught up in the tree of stars
Falling in my backyard

She'll always be what I can't find
She'll always be where I break down
She'll always hide behind a star
I'll always dream she can't be far

I've got no Houston to whine down to
I've got no protocol
Gravity's so far away
Wrapped on that shrinking ball

I eclipsed my memories
Sleeping inside this pod
Patient time will carry me
on her back without a sigh

And I won't let her down
My soul is celestial-bound
And if I'm never found
She'll always be

She'll always be what I can't find
She'll always be where I break down
She'll always hide behind a star
I'll always dream she can't be far

    Song Meaning"Another Space Song" continues a major theme of the album, using the vast emptiness of outer space as a metaphor for the isolation and introversion felt in the depth of Drug Addiction.

    for excemple:
    "All my missions float away. I never trained too hard." Meaning; the substance abusers dreams and goals are fading away as Addiction clouds it all out, and due to the Addiction they are no longer actively pursuing them.

    "I'm so caught up in the tree of stars, falling in my backyard." (Tree of Stars) references the brain and how you can get so caught up inside your own head. Addiction will make you a dreamer.

    “She” being the thing we all crave, whether it be Drugs, Alcohol, Sex, Love, or whatever it is that makes you tick.

    "I've got no Houston to whine down to, I've got no protocol." You’ve isolated everything else in your life, you don’t feel like you have any connection, any responsibilities ...
