lyrics

C G F Am G
So far from home, but too close to fail
C G F Am G
I feel like I’m floundering at a time when I should sail
F G Em Am
So much is on the line and it’s all up to me
F G Em F
If this rover fails its mission, what else can it be

C G F G F G
What I want is to be more than an semi-autonomous laboratory
C G F G F G
What I want is to be more like the kind of craft that earns a story
Am F E Am
There is something ready to roll
Am F E Am
Inside my core, beyond my goal
F G C
I want a mission... to control
C G F G F G
What I want is to ignite more than samples of alien stone
C G F G F G
What I want is to inspire all the people back at home
Am F E Am
Potential must become kinetic
Am F E Am
Or I’m going to go frenetic
F G C
I want a mission... to controooooooooooool
Am F E Am
I want to be more than a fancy tool
Am F E Am
Th’t can not even keep its cool
Am F E Am
I want to be more than a rover
Am F E Am
Proving itself over and over
F G
No ghoul can stop me, nor any black Hole
F G C (hard stop)
I want a mission to control
