I am an astronaut
I'm in my space shuttle, my very own little satellite... orbiting the world.
No one looks at me, I see everyone.
This little space shuttle is my planet, my world
My space suit is my armor, my shield against the crass noise that everything is.
Everyone, everywhere gives way to a plague of irritation
Words, actions, feelings, emotions... unnecessary.
Hug myself tight, become a ball... get lost in this fish bowl of lost souls.
I want to hibernate and never wake up, never exit my peaceful slumber.
I like being alone, no one to trouble you
But alas, I want to be troubled at times... no one seems to care then.
Can't blame them, after all... I'm an astronaut.
Wearing a shiny space suit, living in a little space shuttle.
Hey, my space suit is shiny for a reason
Notice me, I'm shining.
