Once upon a time we lived on solid land
Held the world in the palm of our hand
Living in our science wonderland

Ignorant faces living ignorant lives, but . . .

There’s nothing here for you to fight anymore
Refugees from a derelict world
Shadows floating through the doorways
And these fancy flags unfurled
‘Onward!’ we fly
And forward we die

When your feet grace this facing floor
You may be haunted, you may bring more
Contributions to science wonderland

Awoken tempests and sleeping giants

There’s nothing here for you to fight anymore
Refugees from a derelict world
Shadows floating through the doorways
And these fancy flags unfurled
‘Onward!’ we fly
And forward we die

So I could pick up this weightless bass guitar
Pull some strings and vibrate some air
Try out some tunes and shoot for the moon
But you remember all the words
About saving the world

Once upon a time we lived on solid land
Held the world in the palm of our hand
Living in our science wonderland

Ignorant faces living ignorant lives, but . . .
