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.
