Challenger

(music/lyrics: Gaba Kulka)

Hey mom thanks for the armor
I feel so safe stifled inside
but don't you think it's time I had
no place left to hide

So
can I leave you, then
now that proved to you I'm six foot ten
by wearing stilts and acting loud
I fooled you into feeling proud
feeling so secure about my reason
and my self-sufficiency

I dream of cutting my hand
while catching a star
I dream of getting burnt
I dream of swimming far enough to drown
I'm looking up how could I
how could I ever fall down

So can I leave you then
now that I proved to you I'm six foot ten
by wearing stilts and acting loud
I fooled you into feeling proud
feeling so secure about my reason
and my self-sufficiency

I run through the back door right into the sky
the great and starless prairie
I'm a stowaway on Challenger ferry
