I can tell you what they say in space That our earth is too grey But when the spirit is so digital The body acts this way That world was killing me That world was killing me Disassociative The nervous systems down, The nervous systems down I know I can never get out of here I don't want to just float in fear A dead astronaut in space Sometimes we walk like We were shot through Our heads, my love We write our song in space Like we are already Dead and gone Your world was killing me Your world was killing me Disassociative I can never get out of here I don't want to just float in fear A dead astronaut in space The nervous systems down, The nervous systems down I know
