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!

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...

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

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

Alien/Human 07:16
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

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
