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.
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.
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 the universe. Head for the Big Bang. Reach for my switch and shout --- Gonna turn the big sky out.
