Lyrics[edit]

    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
