lyrics

Feels like I've held my breath for hours
And I turn on my eyes to find I'm very far away
I take account of all my wheels, my arm, and my tiny drill
After all my training, I will do nothing familiar today

The folks who brought me up for this have such high expectations
And though they shouldn't they have dared to dream that I can change it all
Thousands watch as I turn on my camera and do my first job
I feel so important and so very small

All I can think is of the ways I'll disappoint them
I've got the tools, I've got the team, but I'm not ready for my close-up
Everybody trusts me more than I do
And I still don't feel like I've even grown up.

But I am faking it
I'm just pretending I can do this
I am faking it
I am faking it on Mars

They're all watching me and I don't know if I can take the next few steps
With every ticking second some of my confidence disappears
And out here it is cold and it is lonely and I am far from home
What would Hubble say if she were only here

And the worst part is not knowing what will greet me
I represent my planet but I'm really not prepared
I hope that I have time to ask for all the help I need
And I hope if I find aliens I won't act too scared

But I am faking it
I'm just pretending I can do this
I am faking it
I am faking it on Mars
