SHOTGUN IN MY SPACESHIP

by Sapient

I'm kinda nervous 'bout blasting off

but the boys in Houston know what they're doin' when putting mutherfuckers in space (yeah)

I wasn't meant to be an astronaut

I was just tryin' to impress you ever since that first second that I'd seen your face

cleaning the shuttle is such a chore

and sometimes I don't feel so safe in it

but we don't launch in the cold no more

and we've re-designed the rocket booster joints so we don't have another January '86

I'll show you the structures on the moon (structures on the moon)

If you'll ride shotgun in my spaceship (x2)

Baby, I'm your monomethylhydrazine

you set my heart fire you're my nitrogen tetroxide oxidizer (yeah you know)

I'm feeling like it's T minus 3

let's get these boosters ignited and lift off before I get pissed off

In these first ten minutes pray nothing's wrong

I just want to separate from the external fuel tank (yeah that's one big fucking bomb)

you got me all sideways and upside down

now that I'm in orbit you'll think that I'm important and love my style (yeah you will check it)

I'll show you the structures on the moon (structures on the moon)

If you'll ride shotgun in my spaceship (x2)
