Payload

(liner notes for track 2)

Got to keep going
got to keep going
keep up the pace
what’s the next step to do
look at the checklist
look at the checklist
check it again
all must be perfect.
eighty experiments
crammed in this ship
too many now it seems
waiting for me
got to keep going
got to keep going!

working as one
working as one
red and a blue team
sharing such tiny space
losing more sleep
losing more sleep
putting the others first
that is the key.

cancer experiments
flameballs and such
fire and dust tests
all for mankind
wow what a payload
wow what a payload!

keep up the pace
keep up the pace
look at the checklist
there is so much to do
and I feel sick
and I feel sick
still it is magical
in zero-G.
eighty experiments
I won’t give up
chance of a lifetime
no I won’t let them down
wow what a payload
wow what a payload
got to keep going
got to keep going!
