Track Name: Saturn
I want your love
You've got this pull, keeps me orbital
Pull me closer
The ice around you warms me up

Hey Saturn, I want your rings around me
Can you catch me?

Made in stars
I got this far steering towards your heart
At perihelion
I'll welcome you with open arms

Hey Saturn, I want your rings around me
Can you catch me?
Hey Saturn, you wrap your rings around me
Yeah you catch me

The ice around you warms me up
You hold me close, whisper love
Track Name: Asteroid Field
I found myself in the asteroid field
With the empire on my tail
Nothing to guide me but my copilot's roar
Still I know we will prevail

I'm flying solo, here I go

I fell in love in the asteroid field
In the belly of the whale
Though he's a scoundrel and the odds say we'll fail
I know we will prevail

I kissed a princess today
Convinced a princess today

I'm flying solo, here I go
Track Name: Moisture Farm
I watch the setting sun
From my moisture farm
I watch the second one
And dream of warring stars

I sow these desert fields
My vaporators hum
To reap a salient yield
I've honed the bluest thumb

Someday I will be someone

I'll stay till season's end
With promises intact
One last harvest then
I'll leave and not look back

It's my life and I will take it back
Track Name: Elliott
Came in the night
Spaceship flight to this world
We're a curious kind

Don't want to fight
Hide from sight
Did not mean to be left behind

Though stranded here
Not to fear
Met a boy who is like in mind

I've traveled far
Seen the stars
Such a friend is rare to find

Elliott
I feel your pain
Dial up
And phone home again

Some might think strange
Would not change
You're my love, you're my guardian

Though I must leave
Believe
In this world you're my greatest friend

Elliott
I feel your pain
Dial up
And phone home again
Track Name: Cosmic Child
I am a cosmic child
I was born inside a star
On the outside of the oort cloud
I see your face
Through a thousand crowds I'll find you
I'll comb through all the human race

I know what I'm looking for 'cause I found it
And it's you

Feel never doubt
I will find you where you are
I don't need my eyes to seek you out
I remember how you feel
From the time that we were stardust
We chose before we turned the wheel

I know what I'm looking for 'cause I found it
And it's you

There's a million miles between us
A million ways to come back to me

I know what I'm looking for 'cause I found it
And it's you
Track Name: Traveler
I was riding on the pulse of a quasar
And dancing to the funky beat of a cosmic string, feelin' space-time sing
I heard the song of your engines, pulled me from afar
I came down to learn of you, will you teach me?
Chorus, introduce me

I have no name, you can call me Traveler
I live between energy and matter
You can find me in a warp field in the stars
If you believe in me we'll open up the universe

Found one who understands the nature of nature
It's not a conscious thing, it's the way we move the waking dream
It's for the likes of you that I travel
So open your mind to me and make believe a path home

I have no name, you can call me Traveler
I live between energy and matter
You can find me in a warp field in the stars
If you believe in me we'll travel far
Track Name: Relativity (or: How to Stop Worrying and Love the Computer)
Stairs don't work in space
We float from place to place
Not much to say, my crew they sleep
The journey long, the past is gone
Lost to relativity

Sweet talk the computer
A ticking clock talks back at me
We turn them on with thoughts we've drawn
We teach them well, our code a spell
They do not see you and me as distinguishable
We are just genes

They turn us off
One by one
Until we are lost
Track Name: Ceti Alpha V
Cold days and blistering nights
As turn of the world unwinds
You left me James, you killed my wife
And I will have your life

This is Ceti Alpha V
Do you remember I'm alive?
Stuck here on Ceti Alpha V

You stranded me, a deep space seed
A forgotten cowards deed
With all my hate, I'll stab at thee
Your death will bring me peace

This is Ceti Alpha V
Find me on Ceti Alpha V
I will wait and writhe
Here on Ceti Alpha V
When you return you'll die
Here on Ceti Alpha V
Track Name: Timechild
In a time quite long ago lived a boy who's deeds are often told
He devised this plan alone, to expediate the present be future thrown
So he packed his winter clothes, dug a pocket in the mountain and froze in snow

He awoke not far from here where the otters tried to twist his cunning ear
Yes he proved too smart for them, so my brothers our alliance became his friend
Timechild is on our side, would be prudent for the student of our steps to hide
Great secret he'll provide

Would you mind just sending me back?

Though his motives weren't often clear, the device he desired was worthless here
Tried to wail and he tried to moan and he tried to go home using the timephone
So raise your hands and make some noise, cause the battle of the future was fought for toys
It's just the way of boys

Would you mind just sending me back?
Find the time for sending me back

And when I'm done, release me to my time
When war is won, reverse this temporal crime
I've seen this world and all that lies in store
When battle comes, I hope the past is warned
