At first,I was just like everyone else aboard this ship

Who still had the desire to take this outer space trip

And see what see what the vast cosmos has to offer

Like a new world that has life under the water.

 

But that was before I had bitten my bottom lip

And stared out at one of the windows of the worlds and

Realized that leaving Earth may not be such a grand

Idea after all because there still is life back on our

Homeworld and the sorrow alone waits for the one hour

On which it would force me to abandon our hearty little band

Of deep space explorers and make the return trip to Earth.

 

As a matter of fact,I still want to return to the planet of my birth

Each and every time I stare at my own reflection on a computer

Screen and wish that our ship's commanding officer

Would let us make the trip back to where we belong...Earth.
