We Can Breathe in Space, They Just Don't Want Us to Escape

And what comes next?
A chance to save ourselves?
 
Imagine magma encrusted in rock
And on the surface of this world
All eyes are on the clock
 
All our empires, our philosophies
Our practised faiths, our revolutions
Our proud sciences, are but a flicker in
One day of the lives of the stars
 
We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape
We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape
 
And what comes next?
(The constellations, yes, all 88 of them)
A chance to save ourselves?
(Like the G8, they meet to procrastinate)
 
"Greetings, we are an infant species
Crawling into our own premature decline"
The north star is chairing the meeting
He knows we're spoilt and he's sniggering at our histories
 
We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape
We can breathe in space
They just don't want us to escape
 
The hollow proposals mean we'll migrate
But they'll bleed us dry until the 11th hour
And when dawn breaks I'll sit and stagnate
With this metric tonne on your shoulders
How do you cope?
 
"We are an infant species
Crawling into our own premature decline"
The north star is chairing the meeting
He knows we're spoilt and he's sniggering at our histories
 
Let's prove the stars wrong
We've got to do this
 
I find it hard to believe that we are alone
I find it hard to believe that we are alone
I find it hard to believe that we are alone
I find it hard to believe that we are alone
I find it hard
I find it hard
I find it hard
I find it hard to believe that we are alone
I find it hard
I find it hard
I find it hard
I find it hard
