Hello, Terry Yearning speaking..
Good evening Mr. Yearning. You have been chosen as winner
to join the next space shuttle flight, leaving in 24 hours

…Fuckin' Hell!

Space is like your mind – a vast void of unkonwn size
I said space is like your mind – a vast void of unkonwn size

If you travel in space for a million years you might find a McDonalds
(Oh my God!)
If you travel in space for a million years you might find a customer
If you travel in space for a million years you might find an answer
And if you travel in space for a million years you might find your freedom
But when you get there

Breathe, feel, walk
Breathe, feel, walk

Space is like your mind – a vast void of unkonwn size
I said space is like your mind – a vast void of unkonwn size

If you travel in space for a million years you might find a human
(or a vegetable)
If you travel in space for a million years you might lose your wallet
(Oh my God, oh my God!)
If you travel in space for a million years you might find an answer
And if you travel in space for a million years you might find your freedom
But when you get there……

If you travel in space for a million years you might not find an answer
If you travel in space for a million years you might have missed your chances, yeah
Travel in space for a million years, for a million years, for a million years
Leaving behind what you're already given

For a million years….rpt

Space is like……..

If you travel in space for a million years you might find (space groovy)
If you travel in space for a million years you might find (space predictable)
If you travel in space for a million years you might not find an answer
And if you travel in space for a million years (you'll never want to return)

Space is like……..

ABOUT SPACE IS LIKE YOUR MIND

I originally produced this song without a normal voice track at a time when I didn't have any confidence in my own singing abilities (for the story about how I change that attitude please read How I Overcame Fear of Performing). I used a so called “pitch shifter" in my electric guitar effects unit to drop my voice down one octave or so, thus making it unrecognisable! Hence the stupid-sounding narrator on the electronic version.

I guess I just combined a few themes which irritated me at the time. The grass is always greener over there-mentality, always looking to happiness is elsewhere was one theme. Another was the ludicrous amount of energy and money invested in space research as if we didn't have enough problems to deal with on Earth! OK, there are plus sides as well……I know!

The mind is indeed vast. As big as the Universe we can travel physically for millions of miles and yet not be  any the wiser. The voyage of self-discovery is vastly more enormous in scale of humungous massivity largeness vortex!
