lyrics

t-plus one million seconds since we were shut in
air one-half atmosphere, tasting faintly of tin
food from a tube and crewmates rude from strain
countdown five years until we'll feel rain again

muscles atrophy but appetites grow
we take up new habits to stay in control
in gravity, love was clumsy and raced
but coitus goes slow in zero with grace

so kick off your flight suit
and join me tumbling above
the beds where mere mortals make love
you know I want you
we both have nowhere to go
watching our world in the rearview window

it's a wafer-thin lifeboat, keeping our cosm contained
borne to the cosmos, bearing our lives in its frame
minds made to wander wither when shut in a pen
but in zero with grace there's infinite space
and so few other men
in gravity, love was just part of the game
but here it appears we need love to keep ourselves sane

so kick off your flightsuit
and join me tumbling above
the beds where mere mortals make love
you know I want you
we both have nowhere to go
watching our world in the rearview window
kick out the cameras
and let's slink off alone
from disappointed viewers at home
I know you want to
we both have nowhere to go
till we're rich
but wish we'd kept video
