A Song About A Spacefaring Society In Future

lyrics

low gravity
by Karl Olson

v1.
and I'm like man what did i leave my planet for?
why'd we even have to leave to colonize planet four?
the dust gets everywhere gotta clean it like a janitor
i really think scientists should've set other parameters
like to ride with the top down, but it's not terraformed
and everything's cramped here: I'm really sick of sharing dorms
aliens visited and wrecked our base with terror swarms
at least i dropped ten of them guess i was in rarer form

but I'd really like to go home and breath the air freely
tired of these all bunk beds I'd rather have a sealy
plus sleeping in low gravity is really such a huge pain
gotta strap down to the bed like you're kinky or you're insane
and i cant even call home or play a real online game
even speed of light travel means the ping is super lame
my girl couldn't handle it, she said hated latency
should've broke it off earth-side, never made her wait and see

ch. (x2)
but now nothing can hold me down
cause I'm in low gravity
ain't nothing you can tell me now
in this cosmic rhapsody

v2.
to make it all worse, can't return until the job's done
making this self sustaining is obviously job one
but then i gotta wait until the planets are all aligned
i bet that's when i will really go right out of my mind
but if it's not space madness, it's cosmic ray sickness
it's like the whole universe aims at us with a quickness
and we can fire back, travel out to great horizons
with atom bomb powered spacecraft like project orion

but that'll never really change, what it's like to be the guy
who actually has to sacrifice the entirety of his own life
just to send to a note back to earth to say that we're not alone
and he get's no guarantees that there's anyone back at home
it's already difficult inside of our solar system
cause when the first team left earth everybody missed them
but now that we're actually building a true outpost
attention is the resource that we all go without most
