If you survive the friction of the sky
Your pod will reach the earth with all that it contains
If you escape your orbit round the moon
Upon reentry you are wrapped in flames

So cool off your skin
You float beneath the waves
And let the change begin
With a phosphorescent glow
You bring forth the spark you know

As you approach the limit of your landing
Collect your gyroscope and step in on the fly
It's just a dream that flutters on your shoulder
So shake it off and hang it out to dry

So cool off your skin
You float beneath the waves
And let the change begin
With a phosphorescent glow
You bring forth the spark you know

If you survive the friction of the sky
Upon reentry you are wrapped in flames
It's just a dream that flutters on your shoulder
So shake it off and hang it out to dry
