    Major Tom (Coming home)
    Peter Schilling

    4, 3, 2, 1
    Earth below us
    drifting, falling.
    Floating weightless
    calling, calling home...

    Standing there alone,
    the ship is waiting.
    All systems are go.
    "Are you sure?"
    Control is not convinced,
    but the computer
    has the evidence.
    No need to abort.
    The countdown starts.
    Watching in a trance,
    the crew is certain.
    Nothing left to chance,
    all is working.
    Trying to relax
    up in the capsule
    "Send me up a drink."
    jokes Major Tom.
    The count goes on...

    4, 3, 2, 1
    Earth below us
    drifting, falling.
    Floating weightless
    calling, calling home...

    Second stage is cut.
    We're now in orbit.
    Stabilizers up,
    running perfect.
    Starting to collect
    requested data.
    "What will it affect
    when all is done?"
    thinks Major Tom.
    Back at ground control,
    there is a problem.
    "Go to rockets full."
    Not responding.
    "Hello Major Tom.
    Are you receiving?
    Turn the thrusters on.
    We're standing by."
    There's no reply.
