Written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first manned flight into space, this song actually features Gagarin on the radio during pre-launch from the Vostok 1!
Spring / 1961 / Gagarin / chosen as the one
He climbs / into the Vostok 1 / which climbs / into the sky and then its gone
And I want to know / what its like to boldly go / up into the heavens / where no human has been present
Watching / a distant Baikonaur / and every / one you know grow small
One minute / your looking at the Kazakh lands / the next / you're the pinnacle of man
what are u seeing up there? / what are you feeling up there? / whats it like being up there? / I'd like to know
So Radio Gagarin and ask him what its like soaring
Up above the skies / in a satellite / looking down at human life
It must feel so ace / flying through space / being looked up at by the human race
