The Lyrics

Can't see clouds, since there's no windows
Time it goes, really really slow
Pilot seems drunk and we all violently shake
I'm scared that we'll crash into a lake

Thrown around, in my wooden chair
Now whose idea was this Discount Air?
I'd have paid a four figure fare
To be sleeping now,
Be sleeping now, Be sleeping now

Because the flight is 14 hours
Because the flight will torture us
Because the flight is 14 hours
Because the flight will torture us

I have doubts that I'll still be alive
At six O' Clock, and now it's five
There are twelve hours, we must get through
Until we get where we are flying to

Thrown around, in my wooden chair
Now whose idea was this Discount Air?
I'd have paid a four figure fare
To be sleeping now,
Be sleeping now, Be sleeping now

Because the flight is 14 hours
Because the flight will torture us
Because the flight is 14 hours
Because the flight will torture us

I have no room
To put my feet on the floor
And my hand
Is on wood, oh, It's got splinters
It hurts, my elbow felt so
Good when it was on the ground, ow, ow
God help us now, help us now, help us now

Because the flight is 14 hours
Because the flight will torture us
Because the flight is 14 hours
A voice inside me says that we ought to jump

14 hours? Where you flying to, Australia? Actually, that would be an express from most of North America. Good job.

Well I gave it 555, because I've flown a lot - mostly on business - and it ain't always fun, folks.

Ethan - good job and right on the money about flying! I gave it up around 1981 after Reagan fired to Air Traffic Controllers (never liked it before then , either). Had to fly after my brother died late in 2000 and the treatment and service was so bad I lost my fear of flying; didn't care if I died in an air crash, as long as I didn't have to deal with the Airlines anymore. Haven't flown since and have no plans to ever again...seriously.
