lyrics

Riding on my asteroid
With the one I love
Coming down for oxygen
Gets so tough

Soaking up the starlight
Of a distant sun
Gone in the morning
When I wake up

You sold me your sunny skies
You chased the clouds
To make it clearer
Lightning cracked it open wide
And now the storm is that much nearer

I saw you at the station
A travel reservation
Made out just for one

Does your imagination
Carry you to places
Or are you on the run?

Dropping through the atmosphere
Plummeting to earth
Hope you had fun for what it's worth

Falling out of orbit
With the ones you love
All the world around you revolves

While you were getting high
Someone had to make a living
It's no use and no surprise
You take and take
But there's no giving

I saw you at the station
A travel reservation
Made out just for one

Does your imagination
Carry you to places
Or are you on the run?

While you were getting high
No one checked the children's fever
And now you act surprised
At what you're finding in the mirror

I saw you at the station
A travel reservation
Made out just for one

Does your imagination
Carry you to places
Or are you on the run?

Will you ever learn, Asteroid?
You gotta come back to earth
