Professor Green – Astronaut lyrics
She was on her way home he was lying in wait,
Assistance from others had never led her astray,
She had a good day,
Was persuaded by summer air to walk instead of getting the train,
The decision so innocent as innocent as she,
Uncorrupted so innocent and sweet
An innocence interrupted by an incident
A dissonance in two people so different in belief
She came from the depths and ascend, bumped into he who dement,
Intent on inflicting the same pain that been led
The decision made by he for she had never consented.
And unprovoked the most vemonous attack,
He took from her that which she can't get back,
And left her with that that she can't get rid of
Which is why whenever it's time for lift out

She builds a rocket out of stars in her spoon,
Straps up, the only way to make it to the moon,
Dear god, I hope you haven't forgot
This young brave astronaut

A habit she never wanted,
A pain she needed numbing,
And she'd rather feel nothing than the pain
An evening she can't forget,
Memories she can't stomach
Not for nothing but a needle in her vein
Friends she ignored till the phone stopped ringing,
Till her door stopped knocking,
Her door she only opens to let him in,
But she has no money so she lets him come
You can take that either away

A window she rarely opens so she can see the day,
Her stove she only uses to heat her spoon,
For her the only way she can reach the moon.
She builds a rocket out of stars in her spoon,
Straps up, the only way to make it to the moon,
Dear god, I hope you haven't forgot
This young brave astronaut

Looking up, looking up, looking up for the young brave astronaut
Give it up, give it up, give it up for the young brave astronaut
I know that you're busy but any time you got,
God please make a visit,
To the young, to the young, to the young,
To the young brave astronaut

She opens the window for a glimpse out
And heats a spoon over the stove
Feels a familiar sting and then slips out
With a window that isn't quite closed
With the window open and the stove still lit,
Along with the rain came a gust of wind,
Which blew the fire out,
Gas still running and her still breathing the gas in.

She builds a rocket out of stars in her spoon,
Straps up, the only way to make it to the moon,
Dear god, I hope you haven't forgot
This young brave astronaut

    Whoever that was that said all junkies deserve to die you need to look at your self people don't just run into these things. Its a very stereo typipical thing for you to say. They were kids once too just like you so don't be so judgemental cus maybe one day youll experience knowing a junkie. Just because they have decided to take the wrong road doesn't mean there not human. We all take the wrong road at times for some the road is short but for others it is a very long journey so I suggest you think before you speak. Just think what if it was ur friend ur cousin? Would you wish them dead. I doubt it.

    Its about a girl who was on her way home and chose to walk instead of getting the train because it was a nice day and she got taken and raped, and was then forced to sell her body for money so she could buy drugs, as she was sterilising needles on the stove she opened the window for fresh air because she was being kept in a house and not aloud out, the wind blew the fire out without her realising and she died from breathing the gas in and I know this as professor green explained the meaning of this song at one of his concerts when he was on tour this year.

    It means the girl was so depressed she pays 4 it with s**! She, s so lost. Had stress, broke frm friends. So she feels no love in her life at that moment. So she puts the heroin in the spoon, adds, citric, prob bout a 1 mil needle cooks the hit up, puts a filter in soaks it up. Ur not listening she left the window open, the gas still running boom! As she, s slipped into her little coma the hit went straight through her body so you end up sparkled you don, t no wats going on round you. Remember the stoves lit a gust of wind what did you think would happen in the kitchen. So sad. A little love and help can go I long way, man shes stuck I feel her pain. That's ur answer people;) worst drug in this planet, sorry so are a few more. My opinion! Keep ur heads up you are loved.

    Every single one of these words has a meaning, and professor green speaks the truth, who ever says junkies need todie, need to have a long think about what they say, this girl didn't have a choice, its the only thing she could dototake the pain away, she got raped on the way home, and turned to drugs as a pain releif. Professor green is my idol! , and every song that he sings, are like hevan in my ears! :-), much love!

    A young girl is walking home from her job in the summer when a man rapes her and steals her virginity. She then started taking drugs and ignoring her friends and the only person she lets into the house is the dealer and she has s** with him because she can't afford to pay for the drugs any more. She never opens the window until at the end of the song. She opens it and a gust of wind blows out the stove she is using to heat the spoon as a way of inhaling the drugs. She had fainted so she doesn't notice that the stove has gone out. The gas on the stove is still going, and she dies on inhalation.

    It's such a emotional song because it happens to way to many young girls it happened to me when I was 15 and the pain really makes you want to forget and drugs is where most people turn as well as self harming and attempted and acctual suicide, men who rape girls should be sentenced to death not 15 years in jail because there action turns lives of the victim and there families and friends. There actions leave many young women blaming there selves and not being able to even look in a mirror with put feeling sick it makes us feel like scum and not worth anything tomaky people's lives are distroyed by rape because no matter how much time passes the pain never does.

    You have all missed the fact that either he gave her the heroin habit or it was aids or hiv not figured it out yet but I'm pretty sure it is talking about him not only raping her but giving her aids and then her turning to drugs and having to sleep for money/drugs (not a good idea if she does have aids) and as for the her dieing and god pay her a visit (well make up ur own mind but it seems to me that pro G. Feels that her death was her relief.

    Who ever said junkies deserve to die, need to have a long hard think, this song is about a girl who got raped, and she couldn't deal with the pain so she turned to drugs, professor green is my idol, and I look up to him!

    This is an amazing, deep, song. Proffessor green is an amazing artist! It's all about a woman who is walking home, instead of getting the train because it's a nice summers evening, who gets attacked and raped then she couldn't deal with the pain so turns to heroin! And to make it even worse she runs out of money so has to prostitute her self to numb her pain, then she dies because of her breathing gas in.

    The young girl was obviously living a happy life, she was raped, he took from her which she can't get back, perhaps her virginity? Her pride? And left her with that she can't get rid of, the shame? The addiction to heroin? The horrible life? She heats the spoon of heroin on the stove, the only way she can get to a happier place (the moon) it's her lift of with the rocket out of stars being the heroin in her spoon. At the end she dies due to the gas, beautiful song, lyrical genius.

    It's a sad story about an innocent girl on her way home who gets raped. Unfortunately she can not get over the incident and pushes away her friends. She starts taking heroin to numb the pain, but she doesn't have the money for it so she sleeps with the guy who raped her for it. And one day whilst she's intoxicated with heroin the window that was slightly open blows the fire out leaving the gas running and I guess she dies of carbon monoxide :(

    As many have stated, this is about a girl who had never been in trouble who was innocent. She made a simple choice to walk home as it was a nice day and she bumped into a man who raped her. She became traumatized with the memories and it sent her on a downward spiral. She got involved in drugs, more specifically heroin and ignored the world. She sells her body to get the money for more drugs. However one day she opens the window, takes a shot of heroin and passes out. With the window open a gust of wind blew out the flames on the stove and her room beginning filling with gas. Most probably she died.
    The chorus is more specifically asking god that when she dies don't judge her for the bad she has done. Look out of her.
