​Minus Ten And Counting

This song is by Leslie Fish, features Arlin Robins and appears on the compilation Minus Ten and Counting (1983).

It's minus ten and counting, and soon she will be gone,
That shining stub-winged angel that we've pinned our hopes upon.
And even as she waits she seems to strain to touch the sky.
It's minus ten and counting, and we wait for her to fly.

It's minus ten and counting, and time is passing fast.
It's minus ten and counting; will our next choice be our last?

It's minus ten and counting for the plan that gave her birth;
The plan that will determine if we ever leave the earth.
Will we choose to throw the plan away, forget our need to know?
It's minus ten and counting; will we stay, or will we go?

It's minus ten and counting for the world on which we live.
We're swiftly using all this lovely planet has to give.
The pressure builds, and soon the chance to escape will pass us by;
It's minus ten and counting: will we grow, or will we die?

It's minus ten and counting, and time is passing fast.
It's minus ten and counting; will our next choice be our last?
