PLANETFALL (Song lyric, copyright David Van Allen) Accelerate to escape velocity Break loose the chains of gravity Bisecting the orbit of Mars On through into the realm of the stars Seeking a suitable system A place to colonize A habitable world with perhaps two moons in its skies The crew is FROZEN I am ALONE Guiding the ship to our new home There to release them from the cold They will be YOUNG I will be OLD I've had a vision I've seen it all I'll be a Hero Come PLANETFALL Erect a statue Engrave MY name With a map to show how far we came I'll be RESPECTED I'll be REVERED By every interstellar pioneer Answering children's questions with the wisdom of a sage I'll be a living legend with no friends of my own age I will accept this I won't get weird 'Cause after all I VOLUNTEERED I've had a vision I've seen it all I'll be a HERO Come PLANETFALL There's more stuff I've written in a similar vein, ie. adapting classic science fiction themes to rock 'n' roll contexts, popculture feeding on itself. e-mail at D.VANALLEN2. *S Download complete.
