I blame you for the moonlit sky 
and the dream that died with the eagles' flight.
I blame you for the moonlit nights when 
I wonder why are the seas still dry?
Don't blame this sleeping satellite.
 
Did we fly to the moon too soon, 
did we squander the chance in the rush of the race, 
the reason we chase is lost in romance.
And still we try to justify the waste for a taste 
of man's greatest adventure oh.
 
Have we got what it takes to advance?
Have we peaked too soon?
If the world is so green 
Then why does it scream under a blue moon?
We wonder why
If the earth's sacrificed
For the price of its greatest treasure.
 
Did we fly to the moon too soon, 
did we squander the chance in the rush of the race, 
the reason we chase is lost in romance.
And still we try to justify the waste for a taste 
of man's greatest adventure oh.
 
And when we shoot for the stars
What a giant step;
Have we got what it takes
To carry the weight of this concept
Or pass it by?
Like a shot in the dark
Miss the mark with a sense of adventure.
 
Did we fly to the moon too soon, 
did we squander the chance in the rush of the race, 
the reason we chase is lost in romance.
And still we try to justify the waste for a taste 
of man's greatest adventure oh.
