FTA: Throughout the 2000s a number of high-value individuals paid to visit the International Space Station (ISS).

I hate that phrase.

I was gonna go to space
But then I got high
I was gonna beat Russia in the race
But then I got high
Now I'm permanently grounded
and I know why
Because I got high
Because I got high
Because I got high
