Start the Simulator

  • Start the simulator
    Controllers, listen up
    What's your status, Guidance?
    Let's take it from the top
    Coming up on docking
    The beginnings of a tear
    Clearing the tower
    We take the air

    Start the simulator
    Give your tanks a stir
    The bright ejecta blanket
    All is still a blur
    Switch to Omni Bravo
    B bus under volt
    Roll right to zero
    Steady as she goes

    We're going to fly so high
    Into the rendered sky
    We're going to be all right
    Inside the endless night

    Start the simulator
    I.S.O. valves are gray
    EDS to manual
    Translation looks okay
    Save it for the splash-down
    Things you want undone
    You're in command now
    Your home away from home

    You're in control now
    Now you're on your own Writer/s: MAGNE (MAGS) FURUHOLMEN, MORTEN HARKET, PAUL WAAKTAAR-SAVOY
