Lyrics[]

[Intro]
Close to the moon
Close to the moon
Close to the moon
Oh so close to the moon
Close to the moon
Close to the moon
I wanna take you so close

[Verse 1]
A passion for life, fantastic
Nest egg in a gold basket, next to go
I'mma hug and kiss the good life, X n' O
Hey, feel better than X and Blow
Get high from my line, turn next to notes
Get these n*ggas gassed up like Texco
Watch your bitch pop like Pepsi Co
Ever since I was an embryo, had magic flow
Young dynamo, young killa
Young illa with the finer flow
Your rapido, never will, never half a ho
Came to celebrate and have a toast
Young sis is living fancy, yo

[Chorus]
I wanna take you so close
Close to the moon, boy me and you
Oh, so close to the moon
If that’s okay with you, close to the moon, and
I wanna take you so close
Fantasea
I’ll be your fantasea
I’ll be your fantasea
I’ll be
Take you close

[Verse 2]
Fast forward, lived half your life
No wrong ‘cause the cash was right
Have a bitch blink twice like hazard light
More than a great way, pass suffice
Non-believers, all asinine
Round the world like satellite
Baby girl got, baby girl got options, right?
PJ to the PH, pass the light
Far from the passive type, I excite your life
And that’s it, better than your average
Status: Captain, Mothership to the bliss
Imagine, anything you want you could have it
Trip-trip-trippy on the magic
Do you reall really want the access of the pheonix?
Fire and ashes, coin and the cash in
No quote and no ration
Numbers on the masses, wonder of the na-tion
Anything you want is established
Anything you want you can have it

[Chorus]
Close to the moon, boy me and you
Oh, so close to the moon
If that’s okay with you, close to the moon, and
I wanna take you so close
Fantasea
I’ll be your fantasea, I’ll be your fantasea
I’ll be
I’ll be your fantasea, I’ll be your fantasea
I’ll be

[Bridge]
Close to the moon, boy me and you
Oh, so close to the moon
If that’s okay with you, close to the moon, and
I wanna take you so close
Close to the moon, boy me and you
Oh, so close to the moon
If that’s okay with you, close to the moon, and
I wanna take you so close

[Interlude: Michael J. Fox]
Life is a series of choices
What you eat, how you look
Whether you do drugs or not
See, only you can decide because the only person responsible is you
And if you make the right choice, there’s nothing you can’t accomplish
If you make a wrong choice, all of the other decisions are made for you

[Chorus]
Close to the moon, boy me and you
Oh, so close to the moon
If that’s okay with you, close to the moon, and
I wanna take you so close
Fantasea
I’ll be your fantasea, I’ll be your fantasea
I’ll be
I’ll be your fantasea, I’ll be your fantasea
I’ll be

[Bridge]
Close to the moon, boy me and you
Oh, so close to the moon
If that’s okay with you, close to the moon, and
I wanna take you so close

Critical receptcion[]

The Pitchfork opined: "An early peak is the chipmunk-pitched house diva cries and disembodied Michael J. Fox anti-drug PSA of the title track, where Banks shifts between virtuosic fast rap and a flirtatiously sung refrain over Machinedrum's neon-blippy "Fantastix". Just as Banks has taken a non-traditional hip-hop path, she's avoiding lazy Calvin Harris-David Guetta club-pop trendfucking, too.

Of course, vintage house also has loads of connotations when it comes to sexual politics. For all the bravery of Frank Ocean's unforgettable story of his unrequited love for a man, it's worth remembering that Banks-- like her fellow LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts alumna Nicki Minaj-- previously went on the record as bixexual."[1]
