about

Real life has to be a group effort. Last century the brightest minds joined together and put humans on the moon. Perhaps those ambitious doers stayed up there and started a moon colony that doesn't want much to do with us earthlings anymore. Our ambitions must have been left behind up there on that rock, because all we seem to aspire towards these days is making increasingly distracting gadgets and hopefully not ending civilization in the immediate foreseeable future.

If this appraisal seems bleak, start a team and build something. It doesn't have to be a rocket to the moon. This weekend my wife and I got together with our team -- a family of likeminded philosopher queens and kings -- and we built a rocket straight to our hearts. If our era is to be remembered as the end of cooperation as we know it, I refuse to be accused of going it alone.

lyrics

Scream to the night sky
Like you're all alone
Look around to see
A city block

Pray to your idol
That you crack the core
Pray to your lover
That the door's unlocked

Up late
Will we ever climb so high?
Will we ever climb so high?
Will we ever climb so high?
Will we ever climb so high?
I'm sure we will
Of course we will

Driving the wrong way
Down an empty road
Pass the signpost
On the county line

Watch the moonshot
On a tiny screen
Fly through radio waves
Just to pass the time

Up late
Will we ever climb so high?
Will we ever climb so high?
Will we ever climb so high?
Will we ever climb so high?
I'm sure we will
Of course we will

See the bright lights
Count the tail lights

Will we ever climb so high?
I'm sure we will
Of course we will
