"hey sid, can you sing 'ground control to major fuckup' right here? yeah that'd be extremely good"

lyrics

when i was younger, i thought the moon was
falling down at the end of the night
but when i grew up, i learned the truth was
the universe just swings away from you sometimes

i toss and turn and i can't fall asleep
with someone else in the bed next to me
are we still us when our minds are asleep
or just the faces and the bodies we've worked so hard to keep?

i've never known
i've never known
(ground control to major fuckup)
i've never known
i've never known
(ground control to major fuckup)

cosmic johnny's in over his head again
friday night between the cans and packs of medicine
he finds somebody he can fall asleep with
who makes him feel like he's alive at the right time
but after half a hangover the magic slips
and i wake up inside of my own private berenstain rift
and there's just a spot of drool where the heart used to be
slipped out the pocket of my cheek and once again i can't fall asleep

i should've known
i should've known
(ground control to major fuckup)
i should've known
i should've known
(ground control to major fuckup)

we're all alone in outer space
they won't remember all the messes we made
we'll disappear without a trace
we're all alone in outer space
they won't remember all the messes we made
we'll disappear without a trace

there's something happening to my heart
i feel it kicking around, i feel it picking me apart
and once i've given all i can to productivity
what do i do with all the shit that's still inside of me?

do you read me, houston? no, there's no problem
i just wanted to talk. how are the kids down on the ground?
i put my space cadet helmet on and wonder
when the universe is finally gonna swing me back around

we're all alone in outer space
they won't remember all the messes we made
we'll disappear without a trace
but i'm in over my head again
we're all alone in outer space
they won't remember all the messes we made
we'll disappear without a trace
but i'm in over my head again
we're all alone in outer space
we're all alone in outer space
we're all alone in outer space
