Track Name: The Space
We've been stuck too long
On this planet called 'home'
Now it's time to leave this world behind

Spaceship take me out
Beyond all reasonable doubt
We're on a mission to find a new way out
Track Name: The Space Between
As the stars fly by
I wave it all goodbye
The birds and the bees
The grass and the trees
In the backyard of my beautiful home
Where I left my collection of snow domes
And treasured memories of friends and family
And treasured memories of friends and family
who left me in the cold
Oh why, I've never been told
Oh why, I've never been told
No, I've never been told
Track Name: There's No Porn On Youtube
There's no porn on Youtube
Yet you can find a lot of horror
It's a horror there's no porn
Is it of violence we're born?
Track Name: Sparrows Gather Together
A bush is not a tree
The tree is not me
Autemn red leaves
Floating on a western breeze
Bright blue skies
Sparrows gather together
They don’t mind the weather
Track Name: What Would Djenghis Do?
When a contractor’s trying to rip you off
Or some asshole wants to jump in line
A colleague got his mind send on your job
And starts sucking up to your boss

When some character steals your parking space
And gives you the finger on top
Or you’re getting hit hard in the face
By a white supremacist mob

Always ask yourself: What would Djenghis do?
Turn the other cheek, the hell he would
Only one question: What would Djenghis do?
What would Djenghis do?

When you catch your best friend in your bed
While your wife is giving him head
Or you’re being blackmailed by someone
Who has a picture of you jerking off

When some deadbeats spray grafitti on your new façade
And they don’t have any talent at all
A terrorist declaring a jihad
On your decadent way of life

Always ask yourself: What would Djenghis do?
Turn the other cheek, the hell he would
Only one question: What would Djenghis do?
What would Djenghis do?

Only one question: What would Djenghis do?
What would Djenghis do?
Track Name: The Space Between You And Me (Gazing At The Nightsky)
Darling, my rocketship is a long way from home
Yet home is not where I want to be
I remember all the good times
I remember all the fun
I remember buying daisies
Flowers always cheered you up
In the summer, we were gazing at the nightsky
Looking at the stars and dreaming about
Lifeforms that would visit us
Aaaah...
Track Name: Tourist In My Own Ex-town
I look for places where I stay a while and hear
If you walk it takes half an hour
The information is passed on in a correct manner
And the channels are reliable

Especially in urban environments
Ranging from spotty to brilliant
I'm a tourist in my own ex-town (x3 or 4)
Track Name: The Final Arrangement
Ten thousand eyes staring at me
Not a single one of them really sees
Ten thousand ears are hearing me
Not a single one of them really listens

One last job, then I’m done… for
One last pretense sing-a-long
Ten thousand hands rythmically waving goodbye
One last song, stop living the lie

Combustible verses of good times gone
I’m charged with anger and jumpdust
A finger away from the grand finale
Hear this arrangement, it’s gonna be a blast
Track Name: The Space Between You And Me Is The Matter Of Time
I put my spaceship down
Down on alien ground
I put my helmet on
And start to walk around
I don't make any sound

I see a million strangers and they're staring at me
I say: "I come from Earth, I come in peace!", with great relief

But then they point their guns at me
This is the last thing I can see

Hey, is that me I see?
No! No, this can't be!
It must be someone else, who's walking towards me...
