To question Stars and the Moon and
Everything in between

Learn something
From you

Excuse me

Excuse me
Is there an
Adult onboard?

Cause our spaceship
Seems to be
On fire

And we haven’t
Been trained
To deal with this

I’d love to help
But this is
Above my paygrade

And I’m surely
Going to
Screw this up

What do you mean
Nobody knows
What we should do now
