Track Name: 9th Configuration
I arrive at the asylum, a makeshift funny farm
An old abandoned castle where Section 8’s can do no harm

I’ve been sent here on assignment, the new doctor in charge!
To analyze the patients; to see who’s real and who’s a fraud

(Then there’s you) the paparazzi’s favorite, (Captain) the schizo-astronaut
(One day) you lost your marbles in the capsule, right before it was ready for lift off

O, Captain, why are you afraid of the moon?
Tell me your secret; I’ll share mine with you
Why did you refuse?

Le Voyage dans la Lune

You broke out of the castle; got lost into the night
You found a little biker-bar where you thought that you could hide

The King of The Angels recognized the superstar
The Demons and The Horsemen broke you like some cheap guitar

(Then there’s you) they called me to come save you, (Captain) my battered astronaut
(One day) Twinkle, twinkle Killer Kane came out; killed every biker on the lot

O, Captain, why are you afraid of the moon?
Tell me your secret; I’ll share mine with you
Why did you refuse?

Le Voyage dans la Lune …dans la Lune, dans la Lune

(Then there’s you) you will find your marbles (Captain); get permission to take off
(One day) your status reinstated to ride on that Galactic-Molotov

Now, give me your Saint’s Medallion and just a little time
I will prove to you and the whole world there is pure-self-sacrifice

O, Captain, why are you afraid of the moon?
Now, tell me your secret, I’ve shared mine with you
O, Captain, My Captain, please tell me the truth
What kind of spaceman is afraid of the Moon?

Why did you refuse? It’s only the Moon!
Why did you refuse?

Le Voyage dans la Lune …dans la Lune
Track Name: Forgotten Astronaut
FORGOTTEN ASTRONAUT (Lyrics: Matt Sharp)

We’re high above the tranquil sea
I take a big deep breath and set the Eagle free

Oh, I know, what I know and I know it’s all up to me
But, I feel what I feel and I feel the history

Over two hundred thousand miles home
If the Eagle fails, I go back alone

Oh, I know, what I know and I know it’s all up to me
But, I feel what I feel and yeah, I feel the history

They got names like superheroes, bigger than The Beatles or I could ever be
They got all the great one-liners, written in the schoolbooks for all eternity

They’re bouncing up and down in the tranquil sea
Three hundred million girls watch on TV

Oh, I know, what I know and I know its just jealousy
But, I feel what I feel and I feel it endlessly

They got names like superheroes, bigger than The Beatles or I could ever be
They got all the great one-liners, written in the schoolbooks for all eternity

We are waiting for connection, trans-Earth injection, three thousand degrees, yes
Splashdown, North Pacific Ocean; soon we will be home where Hornet waits for three, yeah

Oh, I know what I know, as my parachutes released
Like peppermint candy we float in a blue-sky dream

Like “Starlite Mints” we move through the cotton sky
And the arms of the ocean are stretched out; open wide

Yeah, they got all the great one-liners, written in the schoolbooks for everyone to read
Yeah, they got names like superheroes, bigger than The Beatles on black and white TV

And now I’ve all but been forgotten, Forgotten Astronaut has been lost to history, yeah

THE END
Track Name: Spaceships
We are mad schizophrenic drifters
We hitchhiked across the milky way
We’ve traveled through multiple dimensions
Looking for a better place to play

D.I.D., damaged and bipolar
Breaking through the Sun’s magnetic field
We are on a supernatural voyage
Searching for a place where we can heal

(Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take away our heartache (Uh ho!)
Spaceships gonna take away our pain (Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take us far from sorrow (Oh, yeah!)
Spaceships gonna take us far away

We are not simple men of science
We are not your parent’s astronauts
We are not role models for your children
We remember less than we forgot

(Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take away our heartache (Uh ho!)
Spaceships gonna take away our pain (Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take us far from sorrow (Oh, yeah!)
Spaceships gonna take us far away

(Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take away our heartache (Uh ho!)
Spaceships gonna take away our pain (Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take us far from sorrow (Oh, yeah!)
Spaceships gonna take us far away

We are schizophrenic drifters, lost in multiple dimensions
A supernatural voyage, searching for a place to call home

(Gonna take us far from sorrow, gonna take us far away)

We are schizophrenic drifters, lost in multiple dimensions
A supernatural voyage, searching for a place to call home

Spaceships gonna take us far away
Spaceships gonna take us far away
We’ll live to dance another day
Spaceships gonna take us far away
