Track Name: Mission to Enceladus
This is Titan Mining, there's
Something on our monitor
Something big is orbiting
Above the Tiger's Claw

- Earth Command to Titan Station
Sounds like our luck is in again
Need to find out what it is,
Could be mega-bucks for us!

- Go ahead and check it out
Take a shuttle and a team of six
For immediate despatch
It's bound to take at least two weeks.-

Blasting off from Titan
Beyond the rings we soar
Orbit Enceladus and
Overfly the Tiger's Claw

Giant geysers generate
Megatons of ice
Boiling from the canyons
to form the mighty rings of Saturn

But it was not the rings that awed us
As we looked out of the airlock
But a giant alien spaceship
This was no cash rock!
Track Name: Inside the Sphere
Inside the sphere
There is no up nor down
inside the sphere
There's only spinning around

Inside the sphere
Blue metallic corridors
And giant galleries have
Coalesced around me

Inside the Sphere
Is more than I can see
A record of the universe
With alien DNA

Like in a dream
I move inside the sphere
A sort of floating
I see myself, observing

In timelessness
I'm in my childhood home
With the toys of yesteryear
Which seems to be the reason I am here...
Track Name: Children's World
Winds blow
Time passes
Dreams fly on the breezes that brought them
Do you remember
The stories they told to you
Children in an adults'world?

The gloves are off now
There are burdens you must bear
The world outside is coming in
The playground wall is ripped away

I'm still growing
I can't sleep
Tell me daddy, was it hard for you?
I don't want to play at being grownups any more
I'm tired and I don't understand the rules

You're still a child inside
The world's grown older in your sleep
Let's pretend's not for just kids
After all, everyone else is doing it

I'm still growing
I can't sleep
Tell me daddy, was it hard for you?
I don't want to play at being grownups any more
I'm tired and I don't understand the rules

Time for bed now
Put your cares aside a while
Do you remember the stories they told to you?
Adults in a children's world
Track Name: The Changeling
This transformation of my body and mind
Into something of an alien kind
Means I can look far beyond the stars
As I flex my new superpowers

With the humanity I have left
I contemplate life and all it means
As I realise this change is
Way beyond my wildest dreams

I was just a mining grunt
Drilling for TOX till totally sore
7 days a week for 18 months
That's every day of this Goddamn tour

To fuel the never ending greed
As Earth becomes Hell, at full speed
It's four years for the round trip,
No wonder so many here totally flip

The Earth spins out in deep space
Who's gonna save the human race?
Something - a divine
Or one of our kind

We are primed and set
Ready for that final date
Unless we calm down
And get our feet back on the ground

The ways of the ancient past
Are the ones which must last
Even as we set forth in space
And look the universe in the face
Track Name: Alien/Human
I am Alien
I am Human
While I am both
I am neither of one kind

I have super God like powers
That'll scare the Human Race
While my Alien brethren
Look down with disgrace

I could save the fragile Earth
Cure disease and bring peace
But am I wanted here?
They will look at me with fear

I will visit the Earth
See if I can call it home
Are these Humans worth saving
Or shall I claim it for my own?

I am Alien
I am Human
While I am both
I am neither of one kind

I'm neither of one kind
Track Name: Return to Earth
Billions of people
Bustle around
Full speed ahead
They're looking at the ground
The ground
Looking at the ground

Each morning at dawn
We start again
Marching in time
Destroying our brains
Our brains

Everything changed
On this day
Last of the sane
With aliens on their way
Aliens are on their way

Holding our breath
we wait for a fate
Worse than death
With Earth blown away
Away
With Earth blown away
