about

Inspired by Nasa’s inability to use a standardized unit
of measure during the '98 Mars exploration attempt... this is about the guy that screwed up.

lyrics

It's ok Joe
you'll get it right the next time around
don’t let it bring you down…

so you shot the rocket ship a little left of mars
calculating inches to the nearest star.

Don't forget the glory days
we beat the russians to the moon
and not a second too soon
not a second too soon…

so we lost our crown
to the information age
with all the glam and glitter
there for outer space….

It's ok… joe
what's a million trillion dollars for?

This one goes out
to the hubble telescope…
and all the mars
lunar lander probes
with the grounded shuttle fleets
beneath cape canaveral's stars
like all those laid off workers
in the detroit bars
(with their gm cars)

It's ok… joe
what's a million trillion dollars for?
