The Lyrics

I ran the distance, and heard a crack
I hit midway no turning back
A landing unfancily on a darkened field
Flew alone my senses repealed
A fatal crash holding me fast, how
Can I escape this unliftable mash?

Can't keep my eyes from the flashing lights
My brain is Twisted,my planes a Earth-bound wreckage, I....

Gremlins are disassembling my wings
Steapend angle, I had tried everything
No GPS, those lazy little gnomes
Full of, fuel and a giant flying bomb

My soul's intension is trying to land
Condition on ground is unsafely unbland
Can't keep my eyes from the flashing lights
My brain is Twisted,my planes a Earth-bound wreckage, I....

(Background)
Friction lock - set.plane - at 0-2-1-4 - pull back Flaps - set - 10 degrees Engine gauges and suction - down
Chances are of a minimium percent - goodbye
Flight instruments-broke
Altimeters - down
(garbled word) - on
Navigation lights - broke
Strobes - dead
(to tower): Confirm 7-2-Bravo ready for landing
(tower): Hello again, this is now 050.4
(to tower): 050.4. It's gone.
(tower): You may commence your landing, winds over 21 knots.
(to tower): 7-2-Bravo
Hit the brakes. Take quickly. They are still rolling.
Just hand the power gradually, and it...

(Lyrics)
And now I lose control by a hair,
My thick Vapors, leave a deadly poisened load,
On the ground most see me and Cry
For they know they'll surely die
Man's dream unthreatened by the morning light
All those souls right through the roof of the night

There's no sensation to compare with this
Painful animation, A state of bliss
Can't keep my eyes from the flashing lights
My brain is Twisted,my planes a Earth-bound wreckage, I....

This was a great idea, but shoot, this was woefully inconsistant. Pacing was off in most of the verses. Was this supposed to be a funny parody or a serious one? You went completely sincere in the last 2 stanzas it seems, which was rather jarring. I like how you used the instrumental break--is that a variation on the dialogue, or the actual transcript? (for those who do not know, that sound in the original song is drummer Nick Mason's solo flight transmission!)

Thanks for the comment and the talking in the background about plane checking is backround in part of the song.
