Major Tom (English Translation) Lyrics

Thoroughly checked over, she stands there
And waiting for the start – all clear!
Experts argue about a few data
The crew still has a few questions
But the countdown is running

Effectiveness determines action
One relies blindly on the other
Everyone knows exactly what depends on them
Everyone is under stress
But Major Tom
Makes a joke

Then he takes off and
Completely detached from the earth
The spaceship floats completely weightless

The force of gravity is overcome
Everything has been running perfectly for hours
Scientific experiments
But what use are they in the end, thinks
Major Tom thinks

At the control center, they panic
The course of the capsule, it’s not right at all
“Hello Major Tom, can you hear
Do you want to destroy the project like this?”
But he can’t hear anything

He floats on
Completely detached from the earth
The spaceship floats completely weightless

The earth shimmers blue
His last radio comes
“Say hello to my wife”
And it falls silent

Down below the egoists are still mourning
Major Tom thinks to himself
If only they knew
A light guides me through space
You don’t know that yet
I’m coming soon
I’m getting cold

Completely detached from the earth
The spaceship floats weightlessly
Completely detached from the earth
The spaceship floats weightlessly
Completely detached from the earth
The spaceship floats completely weightless
