I've grown so fond of gravity
Sometimes I like to breathe
And now that I've got used to it
I find it hard to say
"I will be leaving"
The stars so distant
The heavens so wide
And it's not safe to even venture outside
If you see me walking and I start to cry
Don't wonder why I'm shaking my fist at the sky
'Cos I'm...
Earthbound
And my fate is unknown
Earthbound
And I feel like
...I feel like leaving my home
The forgotten rapture of sun-drenched days
Pray you didn't stay out in those poisonous rays
And if you think that this is only a dream
Jesus probably wants you for a sunbeam
Mutant creatures washed up in the tide
And if I don't weep it's only my alien pride
Businessmen barter sky-scraping deals
It's hard to credit once that this was really fields
The ground opens up and swallows your appeals
"Spare us the dangerous elements that it yields"
The faint embrace of gravity
Is causing my delay
Yes, cancel my departure
Looks like I'm here to stay
Earthbound
And my fate is unknown
Earthbound
And I feel like
...I feel like I'm losing my home
