Rocket Rider’s Prayer.
“Rocket Rider’s Prayer” by
Steve Savitzky, performed by Cecilia Eng, Kristoph Klover, and Ernie Mansfield. Lyrics and chords available here.
As Steve notes on his website:
You have to admire the people who fly the shuttle. There you are, sitting on top of two oversized roman candles and enough hydrogen to make the Hindenberg look like a wienie roast, secure in the knowledge that the whole thing is controlled by a million lines of computer software, and that every component of this complex and dangerous system was made by the lowest bidder.
