(Bairnson)

                                We say welcome to the mission
                                 Show us all what you can do
                                  We need a man with vision
                                  So we put our trust in you
                                  And now we hope sincerely
                            That you'll do the best that you can do

                                 Oh for sure it won't be easy
                              And we will have to risk our lives
                                  Some will try to break us
                                   And cut us down to size
                                      But jsut remember
                              There can be no consolation prize
                                        Not in our eyes

                                    It's a long way to go
                                  We can't wait one more day
                             We need someone to light up the way
                                    We may run out of time
                                  Can you hear what we say?
                                 Because heaven is so far away

                                Although time is getting short
                          There's still some sand left in the glass
                              And now we have a living breathing
                                      Rocket man at last
                                   It's time to take a step
                               And nail our colours to the mast

                               No more talk of great adventures
                               When it's movement that we need
                                   It must be our intention
                                 That we never loose the lead
                                   So count us down to zero
                                  And let's get up to speed
                                       We're up and away

                                    It's a long way to go
                                  We can't wait one more day
                             We need someone to light up the way
                                    We may run out of time
                                   So believe what we say?
                                 Because heaven is so far away

                               And so now they cry for justice
                                  As if justice will be done
                                  But the eye up in the sky
                                Was flying to close to the sun
                                  The Challenger has fallen
                               And the race has now been run....
