I had a plan to drive out to the promised land
To wander in the desert sand, to wait until the spacemen came
And took me with them far away and save me from the judgement day

Cause I don't know what I want or if I want what I've got
Contradiction and confusion and addiction are my lot

And I understand the questions that you ask when you're sad
Dilemmas that don't fit your plan

And I'm not sure who you are or if you come from the same star
Is it a rocket that you're riding or just lightning in a glass
You move so fast and I'm always the last to know where you've been
And where you're going

I had a thought that I would be an astronaut and fuck up just like Major Tom
Or maybe I'll just ride the bomb right down till it hits the ground
