Lyrics
I wanna burn this to the ground
I wanna watch it all fade to black
I wanna bury this in the dirt
I wanna put it all behind my back
I wanna bathe in ethanol
Wash my hands until they're clean
I never cared for consequence
I never thought about eventually

I wanna be an astronaut
I wanna fly far away from here
I wanna live in a big black hole
I don't wanna live my life in fear

I don't wanna tell you anything
I just wanna keep it all to myself
I don't wanna keep you in the dark
But yes I'd rather go tell someone else
I will try my best to be happy (I deserve...)
I will try my best to be real (everything you give me...)
I will try to forget everything (I need to...)
I will never show how I really feel (Feel this pain)

I wanna be an astronaut
I wanna fly far away from here
I wanna live in a big black hole
I don't wanna live my life in fear

I wanna be an astronaut
Fly myself far away from here
I wanna live in outer space
I don't wanna live my life in fear

Alright, alright
I'm guilty
I'm so sorry
I'm guilty
Alright alright
Put me away

...is certainly present in this song. But it stands very well on its own, and doesn't need this reference. Great energy and brilliant production. Wowsers! Rocking my pants off (and you don't wanna see that!)

thanks
i tried a couple of times to change it up a little and make it more my own, but kept coming back to the Nirvana way. They definitely knew what they were doing! Ripoff? maybe, but I like to think of it as more as my homage ;) Thanks for listening, chaser!

Another great track. This has got great energy and then some. I think I might need to go kick over a speaker or smash a guitar now! Keep up the good work

a piece of nirvana
one of my favorite bands. Like Walt says, it stands on it's own.

there is so much energy eminating here to light up a city block.

and man oh man, that is some intense vocal cord shredding.

Nicely Done
Well done sir. Certainly one of the best put together rock songs I have heard on this site. Well mixed, tight rhythm, and very nice vocals. This obviously has a Nirvana edge to it, but there is definitely an element of you in there as well.

Fav'd
as soon as the intro started. It's packed with energy and manages to keep the pace. I like the little crazy guitars notes between the first verse. The nasa could certainly use the solo to power a rocket.

solo
thanks a lot! we called that first solo the 'goofy' solo. originally it ran through the entire second verse but ended up clashing with the vox a little so we cut it short. thanks for checking this out.

Wow, man...
You know, I usually don't like heavy rock, and it's mainly because I can't figure out what the lyrics are. Then when I do, I wish i hadn't. This is different- the lyrics are clear, and the emotions convey what we've all felt at times. The energy in here is amazing. I can't imagine me trying to record high energy music and have it sound fresh, after all the recording it takes me to get it right. This sounds like I'm at a concert. And that solo is great!

I knew I was right
Yeah, I totally heard Nirvana on this, that I can't argue. Brilliant, absolutely, brilliant sound on this. This is a hit. And you will be sorely missed at Macjams when you leave. Just remember the little guys.

Niiiiiiiice
The solo on this is amazing.

Very nirvina-ish but already sounds better than most of the post-grunge acts in the charts these days.

Well done.

hey
I'd never heard this before. Fantastic. Balls out awesome. Sounds like me on that first guitar solo. Definitely not me on the second one. You made your guitar sound so much like a Fender Mustang it was silly. You piss talent.

Congratulations on the record release today!

Actually Nirvana wished they did a song this good.
