I’m at the foot of the ladder. Going to step off the LM now That’s one small step for a man One giant leap for mankind. I pictured a rainbow You held it in your hands I had flashes But you saw the plan I wondered out in the world for years While you just stayed in your room I saw the crescent You saw the whole of the moon The whole of the moon.

It came full circle when Prince performed the song at shows in 2014 and 2015.
