ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- So, this is brand new song of ours called "Astronauts"

and it was inspired by the fact

that Rich and I are both nerds who,

when we were little kids used to look up at the stars

and dream about being Astronauts,

and think about how everything down on earth,

like our house or our cat, would all look really small

from up there.

And during the pandemic,

we would take walks outside at night,

when everything seemed really big and overwhelming

for all of us,

and the weight of the world seemed too heavy,

we would walk outside and look up at the stars,

and think if we could be up there like astronauts

and look down at all of this,

maybe it would seem a little bit lighter.

And so, that's what inspired this song.
