Houston, we have a MAJOR problem.
Leaving the 3 brave astronauts of Apollo 13 for dead would have been insane, and so the "4" symbolizes the spirit of keeping the NASA program alive. Now, it is (slowly) dying, and it may be a long time before we focus heavily on flying to space again. So, we're leaving it "for dead", but not for good. We praise it as one of our greatest feats of human history.
This song follows the same "one beat" format as "Spaceman's Bride", but uses crossfades instead of panoramas.
