Gabriel o Pensador - Astronauta (English translation)

English translation

Astronaut

Astronaut!
Do you miss Earth?
Why
Do you miss it?
We down below
Are still in war
Looking to the moon
Begging for peace
So tell me
Why do you want to come back?
Aren't you happy
Right where you are?
Watching
Everything from a distance
Seeing how the Earth
Is tiny little
And how big is
Our ignorance
And how our life
Is cheap
We live here working hard
Always tired
Of so much struggling
For some space
And you
With all that space in your hands
Wishing to come back to the ground?
Stop it, brother!
What's wrong with you?
What's gotten into you
In the moon?
 
I'm going to the world of the moon*
Which is just like a love hotel
Where the gods and godesses
Hug and kiss in the sky
 
Stop it, brother!
What's wrong with you?
What's gotten into you
In the moon?
Stay there
It's the better for you
Life here
Is too hard
Here in the world
Things are tough
Anyone knows
If they're coming or going
Looking above
Searching for salvation
Or at least some orientation
You're already close to God
Astronaut
Promess me then
You'll ask Him
All the answers
For all the questions
And send me through the internet
 
I'm going to the world of the moon
Which is just like a love hotel
Where the gods and godesses
Hug and kiss in the sky
 
It's so much progress
I look like a child
This life of internet user
Tires me
Astronaut, will you come back
And let me take a ride in the spaceship
Give me the keys
Because I'm moving out
Be welcome, come inside please
And take care of my computer
Because my bags are packed
I'm leaving
And it's a one way ticket
I'm ready for the take-off
I'll travel on
I'll disconect
Because I'm done
I don't want to get
No emails
With news from this goddamn
Place
 
I'm going to the world of the moon
Which is just like a love hotel
Where the gods and godesses
Hug and kiss in the sky
 
I'm going away
Where there's no gravity
To release me from the weight
Of responsibility
Of living in this sick
Planet
And have to find
The cure our heads
And hearts
Enough with madness
Enough with torture
maybe in space
I can find some intelligent
Creature
But here there's many people
I just find solitude
Hatred, lies, ambition
Stars around
You have plenty
Astronaut
Earth is a planet
On extinction
