The Astronaut Song Songtext

I used to think that I could be an astronaut

"If I just give it all I got, I can do anything I want"

But I'm older now and so I recognize the lie

It doesn't matter how hard I try,

You know I'll never reach the stars



My hopes, my best laid plans, and all my dreams, you see

Were too big for my ability, you know I tried with all my might

To spread my wings, making this earth a memory

To make everyone remember me

As I'm flying out of sight



Don't tell me it's okay, when it's not

Don't tell me I can buy what can't be bought

Some people have a little, some people have a lot

You never get anymore than you already...



I used to give everything I had and more

I can't remember what I did it for,

Cause everybody lets me slide

Isn't great every time we celebrate the mediocrity

And learn lessons in hypocrisy

So everybody makes the grade



I took my time to find that I could coast along

And everybody still sings my song

Still you play it like you care

Every time you lie you know you take a little bit of my liberty

Back again in mental slavery

When you worship what is fair



Don't tell me it's okay, when it's not

Don't tell me I can buy what can't be bought

Some people have a little, some people have a lot

You never get anymore than you already...



Don't tell me it's okay, when it's not

Don't tell me I can buy what can't be bought

Some people have a little, some people have a lot

You never get anymore, you never get anymore

You never get anymore than you already got
