Watch the Eagle as it's landing
Feel the impact, see the scars
Tread marks on a distant planet
Smiling at the Face on Mars

See the shuttle blown apart
Feel the pain cut through the heart
Pioneers full of grace
Glenn returns from Earth to space
Reaching out to touch the stars
Smiling at the Face on Mars

Time and space they are exploding
Trigger pulled on Hawking's gun
Voyager to chart our future
Pierce the corona of the sun

See the shuttle blown apart
Feel the pain cut through the heart
Pioneers full of grace
Glenn returns from Earth to space
Reaching out to touch the stars
Smiling at the Face on Mars

(Instrumental)

Send our ships out to the planets
Build our homes in outer space so that
If a rock should hit our home world
There'll always be a human race

See the shuttle blown apart
Feel the pain cut through the heart
Pioneers full of grace
Glenn returns from Earth to space
Reaching out to touch the stars
Smiling at the Face on Mars

Will we live to make a difference
Will the sands of time run out
Taking aim at truth and wisdom
Live our lives in care and doubt

See the shuttle blown apart
Feel the pain cut through the heart
Pioneers full of grace
Glenn returns from Earth to space
Reaching out to touch the stars
Smiling at the Face on Mars

Reaching out to touch the stars
Smiling at the face on Mars
