Columbia now nine times the speed of sound.
Roger that, Dan, I've got a solid TACAN locked on, uh, TACAN twenty-three.
The, uh, tracking data, map data and pre-planned trajectory are all one line on the block.

Hello, Earth
Hello, Earth
With just one hand held up high
I can blot you out
Out of sight

Peek-a-boo
Peek-a-boo, little Earth
With just my heart and my mind
I can be driving
Driving home
And you asleep
On the seat

I get out of my car
Step into the night
And look up at the sky
And there's something bright
Travelling fast
Just look at it go
Just look at it go

[Male choir singing]

Listen!

Hello, Earth
Hello, Earth
Watching storms
Start to form
Over America
Can't do anything
Just watch them swing
With the wind
Out to sea

All you sailors
Get out of the waves! Get out of the water!
All life-savers
Get out of the waves! Get out of the water!
All you cruisers
Get out of the waves! Get out of the water!
All you fishermen
Head for home

Go to sleep, little Earth
I was there at the birth
Out of the cloudburst
The head of the tempest
Murderer
Murderer of calm
Why did I go?
Why did I go?

[Male choir singing]

Tiefer, tiefer
Irgendwo in der Tiefe
Gibt es ein licht

Go to sleep little Earth
