Cassini
Wendy Wiseman Fisher

A lonely adventurer
A mission to explore Saturn, its rings, and moons
A stunning conclusion we have planned for you, enduring wanderer from Earth
twenty years among stars, you’re out of time and fuel

After seven years flying alone in space
You reached Saturn and during your time there
You revealed the marvels of Saturn and its tribe of icy space dragons
Who roar flame and boil a methane sea

On your final orbit,
You will fight a dragon within Saturn,
Just keep your antenna pointed at us
As you transmit your victory cries
In the skies of Saturn, your voyage will end;
You’ll become Prince of Saturn

Saturn is a stormy world, majestic
And you have a last courageous task
A chilling masterpiece

It’s the start of something new
Twenty-two leaps between the space ‘twixt Saturn and its rings
As you time and again plummet into the unknown
You are closer to the dragon than you’ve ever been before

On your final orbit,
You will fight a dragon within Saturn,
Just keep your antenna pointed at us
As you transmit your victory cries
In the skies of Saturn, your voyage will end;
You’ll become Prince of Saturn, oh

On your final orbit,
You will fight a dragon within Saturn,
Just keep your antenna pointed at us
As you transmit your victory goodbyes
In the skies of Saturn, your voyage will end;
You’ll become Prince of Saturn, ah.
Because Zombie Requiem, that's why.

Cassini by mister Johnny Cashpoint

I am Cassini, out
In the Big Empty
You will not tempt me to
Final re-entry, not
Since I found out you're
Planning to fry me,
In Saturn's skies, for
My grand finale

Making it crueller,
NASA's solution - to
Broadcast my last hours, as
Live execution.
Twenty years' service, this
How you repay me?
Expected a timepiece, not be
Killed inhumanely ...

You talk of risk mitigation
But humankind is the contamination
Spread your disease til the galaxy's full of it
My death saves you money, just spare me the bullshit

I am Cassini, you'll never see me again
I'll go beyond ...
I am Cassini, you'll never see me again
I'll go beyond, beyond the realm of men

There's no A.I. in team ...
Lester Bangs is still dead.

Cassini
by Lichen Throat

[Alien 1]
What is this metal device?
Where is it from? Why is it here?

[Alien 2]
Perhaps it’s sent to spy on us.


Launched in ‘97,
I’ve been out here for twenty years.
The sun’s so distant.
I’ve gotten so lonely;
So dark and cold,
never going home.
Call me Cassini,
But I can’t hear you.
No one can see me
But I’ve much to do.
Almost over,
Last flyover,
Spiral down,
I’ll be gone.

[Alien 1]
This strange apparatus--
It’s coming right at us!

[Alien 2]
Perhaps you shouldn’t fear it.


Falling through the clouds
Gravity increasing, not long now.
Thirteen years in orbit,
Dozens of tiny moons,
Dust rings in dim light:
All will be over soon.
Your curiosity
Sent me way out here.
I hope I’ve helped you
Learn about this sphere.
Gonna hit,
This is it.
Goodbye.
Now I’m gone.

3, 2, 1, 0, and liftoff!
Twenty seconds to L.O.S.T. risk
Nice to be in orbit
Go with throttle up

Okay, Houston, we have a problem here.
This is Houston. Say again?
Uh, Houston, we have a problem.

On board computers now have primary control of critical vehicle function.

Your wife's in New York for the weekend, and so you call me up
Because you heard that you could see the Northern Lights tonight
If the weather's clear
Because of solar flares
And you want company
Drinking wine on the balcony, we argue about Neil Degrasse Tyson
And whether he's cool or just insufferable
His vests are a topic of hot debate
I think they're lame, you think they're great
It's too cloudy for the Northern Lights, and so we go inside

You take your ring off, put it on the bedside table
While on TV, they simulate the falling of the satellite into the great unknown
In the space between Saturn and its rings, there's just an emptiness that surprised all the scientists
And in the dark I'm falling into the great unknown

And in the space between you and your ring,
We are explorers, collecting beautiful things
We are destroyers on a suicide mission
I kiss your forehead and pretend you would be truer to me

I know you love her and you would never leave her
And that makes me the Other Woman in this messed up play
I'll do the walk of shame past God on Judgment Day
You can fill your mouth with butter and look away
But by the light of icy moons, by the methane river running to a methane sea,
I picture you and me
Watching Cassini plunging to its end, a beautiful fire
What's a little fire between friends?
What's a little fire between friends?

You take your ring off, put it on the bedside table
While on TV, they simulate the falling of the satellite into the great unknown
In the space between Saturn and its rings, there's just an emptiness that surprised all the scientists
And in the dark I'm falling into the great unknown

I want my baby to kill some people
I want my baby to kill some people
I want my baby to kill some other babies
Those other babies drive Daddy crazy
Kill those people baby, make Daddy proud
How many people, baby? Let's find out!
I want my baby to grow up and kill some people
I want my baby to grow up and kill some people
So many people, baby, and so much blood
So many pieces baby, and so much fun

Oh Cassini, raise you tiny sword
Swing it at the hoards, make Daddy proud
Oh Cassini, with your can of gasoline
Purge until it's clean, make Daddy proud,
That's my baby
Oh Cassini, raise you tiny sword
Swing it at the hoards, make Daddy proud
Oh Cassini, with your can of gasoline
Purge until it's clean, make Daddy proud,
That's my baby
"perhaps the most offensive and disturbing image I've ever heard in a song" - Hans Gruber
