lyrics

Well I saw something that resembled that place
On the other side, where we were together
On the moon we walked and kicked up lots of dust
We made a space cloud of us
And of that stuff we were afraid of
We had a home there and in the gloe we'd stare at each other
At nothing other than each other
And I thought, nothing could ever touch us
Except the space dust all around us

But now there's something digging down, into the crust
Trying to find an ocean there, under the home we shared
They set their weight down
And like an earthquake we cracked
Was it the government who sent them?
Was it their scientific vision?
To destroy past recognition
They did approach without concern
And when they warned us of their plan we didn't listen
They would take our gentle light
Our moon and our whole life
Replace what we had grown with their ambition
And we would be sure to fail
If we began to form an opposition
Nobody's right they say
Nobody's wrong they say
We are generous and good
And we will have it our way, yes we will have it our way
They say now take all of your dust, your love and all your trust
We're sending you upon your final mission
And then I found myself in orbit
And the last thing I observed
The last words that I heard
Were don't forget to send in your transmissions.
We expect you to report on your condition'
Then I saw something that resembled that place
On the other side, where we were together

They will take our gentle light
Our moon and our whole life
