lyrics

lyrics Rie Sheridan Rose, music Marc Gunn

Let's raise a glass to flyin'
where the Devil fears to tred.
To risk the chance of dyin'
for the bright stars overhead.

Let's raise a glass to free men
Though we haven't got a dime.
Our ship's as fine as Eden
as to the stars we climb.

Let's raise a glass to runnin'
If the rules get in our way—
It's better to be flyin'...
We can fight another day.

Let's raise a glass to tryin'
when they kick you in the teeth.
To getting up, not cryin',
To stand for your beliefs.

Let's raise a glass to crewmates-
Though manners they may lack
When they know a threat awaits,
they've always got your back.

Let's raise a glass to pilots,
who keep us in the sky.
To engineers in violet
who keep this old girl spry.

Let's raise a glass to sighin'
o'er the ones we leave behind.
But you know I'd be lyin'
if I said I really mind.

Let's raise a glass to this ol' ship
There's no finer in the ‘Verse.
She's surely worth another sip—
My blessing and my curse.
