Zero Gravity

Postby vowlvom » Wed Sep 27, 2017 10:00 am

I was on the waitlist to be weightless
Til my name came up last year
And they gave me a day’s training
And then sent me way up here
As I pulled clear of the atmosphere
the vacuum swallowed me
I guess the air lock is not a despair lock
Because darkness followed me

Though I complete all my tasks
and follow protocol
in the face of the infinite
I feel so very small

Mission control is getting pretty sick of my frown
If there's no gravity then what is bringing me down?

I try to make things right via satellite
but my friends they envy me
the sadness in my voice obscured
in poor sound quality
In every shining star I see
my mistakes come back to haunt me
I ran away from my problems
but even here they taunt me

Fifteen years of oxygen
and food stashed in the hold
but even climate control
cannot stop me feeling cold

The onboard computer is getting sick of my frown
if there’s no gravity then what is bringing me down?

rockets fire and machines beep and galaxies catch flame
a lonely quest for one man who cannot forget his shame
giant suns burn down from furnaces to glowing embers
when I get home I hope that nobody else remembers

ZERO GRAVITY
Micah Sommersmith

Tonight my bedsheets hold me tight
The only thing that's keeping me in place
I feel I could float right into space
But if I hold on I know I'll be alright

I feel I could float right into space
Drift away in zero gravity
And the way I feel you feel for me
Is the only thing that's keeping me in place

I can't feel the way you feel for me
And the bedsheets don't hold me quite so tight
If I let go I know I'll be alright
Just drift away in zero gravity

Zero Gravity
by Lichen Throat

Seven years of training
Prepared me for today,
Blasting off from Kazakhstan
To spend six months away.
My friends at NASA told me
To expect a bumpy ride.
When I see the space station,
I can’t wait to get inside.
As we begin to unload
The fresh supplies I’ve brought
I can’t keep from staring at
A brown-eyed cosmonaut.
I’ve never kissed in zero gravity,
Looking down on all humanity.
Oh, Natalia, spend some time with me.

While we grow weightless seedlings
You tell me all about
Winters in St. Petersburg,
Borscht, and sauerkraut.
Your name starts with an H;
ends with a backwards R.
You say your great grandfather once
Had dinner with the Tsar.
I’m in love in zero gravity;
Never took a vow of chastity.
Oh, Natalia, spend the night with me.

We float together
Up in the sky,
While February
Turns into July.

Your mission is completed;
They say you have to go.
The Soyuz capsule has arrived
To take you down below.
In just a few more minutes,
I know you’ll be earthbound.
But I still want to be with you
When we’re both on the ground.
I’m in love in zero gravity.
Feeling sure of our compatability.
Oh, Natalia, spend your life with me.

Berkeley Social Scene:
Zero Gravity

The stars look very different today
Out my window far away
Illuminating the dark sky
Shimmering like a butterfly

Zero Gravity
Floating in an airless sea
What will become of me
Floating helpless endlessly

Danger is real in the blackness
Avoidance of pain takes practice
Keep your faith in the moonlight
Eyes wide open like headlights

Zero Gravity
Floating in an airless sea
What will become of me
Floating helpless endlessly

Weightless is senseless
Prepare to be restless
You can hear the deafness
But it leaves you defenseless

Solo

The stars looks very different today
Floating here like a castaway

Zero Gravity
Floating in an airless sea
What will become of me
Floating helpless endlessly

ZERO GRAVITY / King Arthur

There is zero gravity holding us down
There is zero gravity holding us down, holding us down
Once Ohio secedes, we're gonna take back that crown
There's zero gravity holding us down.

First time I heard about this movement to be free
I was tuned to Cincinnati - WKRP
Now from Dayton up to Cleveland, everybody says let's go
We're holding up our signs - "NOHIO"

There is zero gravity holding us down
There is zero gravity holding us down, holding us down
We've got purple baseball caps and parades in every town
There's zero gravity holding us down.

Back in the days when we were going into outer space
More astronauts from Ohio than any other place.
So in honor of Neil Armstrong and lots of names you wouldn't know
It's time for us to blast off - "NOHIO" !!!

Like a modern day Columbus, we're not sure just where we'll be
When we get to where we're going, but we're longing to be free.

There is zero gravity holding us down
There is zero gravity holding us down, holding us down
They said they'd drain the swamp, things are deep enough to drown.
There's zero gravity holding us down.

...inspired by recent craziness on Rachel Maddow, this is what happens to songwriters as they enter senility... recorded in about three hours, the day after the deadline, so if it shows up on the front page, thank you fightmasters...
