Getting Ready for Blastoff

It's a smashup
The world projected on a pushpin
We all get taught how to live
'Cause happy is our greatest asset
Happy keeps the air clean
And the water clear
And the gardens green
And one smile can light a room
So why do we wallow in misery?
It feels so good feeling empty
It's like an old friend
Who's always a downer
Not the kind of company
You would make and keep now
Empty feels like a space you could leave
And grow from
