lyrics

Freddie was just like you
Born with a beating heart
Just like you
He thought he had all the time in the world
But destiny came calling

Freddie was young
Self-confident
Educated American
Who never did leave the Midwest
Had a good job
And college debt
A new truck
And a new engagement

She clung to him
Said it was her daddy’s fault
He often wondered what might have happened
With different experiences
But he was dutiful
Catholic/Christian/Neo-Protestant
He could feel something changing
Like he was closing in on fate

Then one night after work
He saw an ad on television
For the first settlement on Mars

He started classes on weekends
He stopped drinking with his friends
He felt distant from Heather
His mind began to ascend

He felt the glory of pioneers
The passion of young blood
The gravity of spheres
And the possession of the flood

When the test flight came
He was swelling with emotion
Nearly bursting at the seams
He put the rocket ship in motion

As if the universe knew
Just how Freddie boy was feeling
It blew his beating, beating heart
Into a million tiny pieces
