Repeat verse, chorus and guitar solo, more or less the same.

"I've been thinking about all of the ways
That a whizz man spends all of his days
In a rocket cathedral pointing to the sky
Wish I was grounded, and see the last of my days
And not rebounded around the Milky Way
In a rocket cathedral pointing to the stars."

"So I'll go to Lucifer and I may be crucified,
Goodbye Mars
I'll talk to celluloid, I'll drive a shiny car,
Bye bye stars."
