Craw - Space Is The Place lyrics

70 pounds of plutonium
Slingshot flyby
One misfiring rocket results
In a global PR situation
As the most toxic substance
Rains down to the earth
And over the next 50 years
Thirty million exposures
Yet I risked the world
And gained the ultimate high ground
We'll now power up
Alpha lasers and particle beams
Our nuclear labs
And our weapons corporations
Need starving new markets
And Space is that Place
Yeah I know about the Russian probe
That crashed into Chile
Yeah I know Apollo 13's power pack splashed
Off the coast of New Zealand
Yeah I know all this and more
Than you will ever find out
So I'll let you in on the score
Space is already radioactive
R is for Rocket
S is for Space
T is for the end of time
So party like you did back in 1999
Yes Space is the Place
Either we control it or someone else will
And all we asked of you was to face
Swallowing the most bitter of pills
