Original video
In a tower of flame in Capsule 12, I was there
I know not where they laid my bones - it could be anywhere
But when fire and smoke had faded, the darkness left my side
And I found my soul in a spaceship's soul, riding home on a trail of light

And my wings are made of tungsten, my flesh of glass and steel
I am the joy of Terra for the power that I wield
Once upon a lifetime, I died a pioneer
Now I sing within a spaceship's heart - does anybody hear?

Before each morning's launch, they know that I am there
To the soul that warms this vessel's hull they say a silent prayer
I'm father, ship, and spirit of the dream for which they strive
For I am man at the hands of man, see us rocket for the sky!

And my wings are made of tungsten, my flesh of glass and steel
I am the joy of Terra for the power that I wield
Once upon a lifetime, I died a pioneer
Now I sing within a spaceship's heart - does anybody hear?

My thunder rends the morning skies, yes, I am here
Though lost to flame when I was man, now I ride her without fear
For I am more than man now, and man built me with pride
I led the way, and I lead the way, of man's future in the sky

And my wings are made of tungsten, my flesh of glass and steel
I am the joy of Terra for the power that I wield
Once upon a lifetime, I died a pioneer
Now I sing within a spaceship's heart - does anybody hear?
