Astronomy
(Astronomy)
Astronomy

The middle lane has trapped my car in red light claustrophobia
I slip the shackles, cut the rope, stand naked with a telescope
As the cat walks alone under a big sky
Against the dark so thin and white, gonna be a big sky night

Astronomy
(Astronomy)
Astronomy
(Astronomy)

Miss Galileo, come with me and view the new astronomy
Black hole dressing on salad plate, quasar at the kissing gate
Now the cat, he walks alone under a big sky
Umbrella dome pin pricked in lights, gonna be a big sky night

My spectacles, my white lab coat, my coffee, thermos and my notes
I pat my pockets, I got the keys to the secrets of the observatory
And closing the door I feel a new dawn
As the darker slides align, you to yours and me to mine

Astronomy
(Astronomy)
Astronomy
(Astronomy)

And now you stand assisting me, I can touch what I can see, see, see
I look in wonder, I feel no shame, see the consequences of the game
Expand our universe, head for the big bang
Reach for my switch and shout, gonna turn the big sky out

There's got to be astronomy
Astronomy
(Astronomy)
Astronomy

Astronomy
Astronomy
