I wasn’t really planning on landing it
I just kinda wanna do a couple maneuvers
See what I can do
Everything’s peachy, peachy keen

I threw up a little bit
I threw up
All inside of it
It’s bad

I want the coordinates of that orca y’know the mama orca with the baby
I wanna know what this weather is gonna be like at the Olympics
i’ve got a lot of people that care about me and it’s gonna disappoint them to hear that I did this
I would like to apologize to each and every one of them

Ah shoot, man I’m sorry about this I hope this doesn’t ruin your day
I’m glad you’re not screwing up everyone else’s day on account of me
I’ve played video games before
So I know what I’m doing a little bit

I’m down to twenty one hundred pounds of fuel
It’s burned quite a bit faster than I expected
They probably got anti-aircraft
Not quite ready to bring it down quite just yet, but holy smokes I gotta stop looking at the fuel

I would like to uh
Make it pressurized
Or something
So I’m not so light headed

This is probably uh like jail time for life huh
I would hope it is for a guy like me
Minimum wage, we’ll chalk it up to that
Hey you think if I land this successfully Alaska will give me a job as a pilot?

You are a very calm collect voice
Dammit Andrew, people’s lives are at stake here
I don’t wanna hurt no one
I just want you to whisper sweet nothings in my ear
