Here I am, sitting in a tree
Feeling sun and being free
Some old man in an uncool van
comes running after me

Try to run
Try to hide
Feel a shot
sting me inside
Legs stop moving
and I know
that I am going for a ride

On the pad, getting ready to shoot
Wrapped in a plastic monkey suit
Some hot chick in a white lab coat
says that I look real cute

Well they throw me
In a tin can
And everything
goes black
Hear 'em counting
and I know
that I ain't never, ever coming back

Through the stars I fall for days
Planets colored out of phase
Shattered soul and scattered mind
all across space and time

From the mountains
of Venus
To the canyons
on Mars
Well my head
starts to explode
And oh my God, it's full of stars….
