Backyard Moonshot
(Ken Double)

Backyard moonshot fell apart
Overloaded from the start
Shooting arrows at the heart
Of some distant purpose

Slowly losing altitude
All objectives misconstrued
Witnesses are interviewed
On the television

Down we go
Down to the surface
Down we go
But there's nobody there
Down we go
Without a purrpose
Looking for a different atmosphere

Backyard moonshot count me down
Round the shops and back to town
Where's your optimism now
That we really needed?

Did you teach yourself to fly
Just to get yourself that high
Leave a smear in someone's sky
Glowing blue and silver

I can see the ground is coming
I can see the ground is coming
I can see the ground is coming

Backyard moonshot disappeared
Thirteen million miles from here
Burned up in the atmosphere
On a Monday morning
