I'd like your hair long and laid onto the ground
You'd prefer an astronaut
Someone to relate to someone to command
And I would be a simple man
I could hardly wait for my stars to fall in line
And synchronize in shine
A wasted string of years and a wasted string of lies
You're still the same to me
It's a waste of a song
It's a waste of my lungs
You're a waste of a song
You're a waste of my lungs
I'd like your face gone and in it's place the sun
You'd prefer an astronaut
For I have come to surface to catch some light and feed
And I have everything I need
And I could hardly wait for my stars to fall in line
And synchronize in shine
A wasted string of years and a wasted string of lies
You're still the same to me
