Lyrics

1. Lost In Space

Another star
has fallen without a sound
Another spark
has burned out in the cold

Another door
to barrens standing open

And who is there
to tell me not to give and not to go

How could I know?, how could I know?
That I’ll get lost in space to roam forever

How could I know?, how could I see?
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

I’m crawling down
The doorway to the badlands
And kicking down

Are you heard: it’s to the black
and all the damage
fading in the oblivion mirror
When the demons
are calling me, their dragging me away

How could I know?, how could I know?
That I’ll get lost in space to roam forever

How could I know?, how could I see?
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

Lost in space
lost in time
Lost in space
Lost in Time
Lost in Space

How could I know, how could i know
How could I know, How could I know
That I’ll get lost in space to roam for ever

How could I now, how could I see
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

Forever…

2. Promised Land

Hey redeemer
Now what’s become on me
taken in by promise
awakening in grief

Collecting us like puppets
you instrumentalize
A frigid trepidation
in a million puppet eyes

God gave his word just to let us down
Where is he now?

You’ve been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You re welcome to my home and
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land

You scratched my back and I scratched yours
It s you who makes decisions
I just open up the doors

Whining in the gutter
They forget their sanctity
Welcome to my clockwork
Vanity machinery

You gave your word
You let me down
What am I now

You’ve been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You re welcome to my home and
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land

Oh as far as the eye can see
They re bent in submission
Empty inside
An army of scarecrows like me
Thousands of brokens dreams
Thousands of tragedies
Tried to run from their destiny

Like moths to a flame
Driven by vanity
They been off to Jerusalem
Chasing a dream
Calling on me
We re just trading in needs

You’ve been facing heaven
You were lost to left alone
You re welcome to my home and
Found another heaven
It was you who took my hand
Come into the promised land

3. Dancing With Tears In My Eyes

[Ultravox Cover]

Dancing with tears in my eyes
Weeping for the memory of a life gone by
Dancing with tears in my eyes
Living out a memory of a love that died

It’s five and I’m driving home again
It’s hard to believe that it’s my last time
The man on the wireless cries again
It’s over, it’s over

Dancing with tears in my eyes
Weeping for the memory of a life gone by
Dancing with tears in my eyes
Living out a memory of a love that died

It’s late and I’m with my love alone
We drink to forget the coming storm
We love to the sound of our favourite song
Over and over

Dancing with tears in my eyes
Weeping for the memory of a life gone by
Dancing with tears in my eyes
Living out a memory of a love that died

It’s time and we’re in each other’s arms
It’s time but I don’t think we really care

Dancing with tears in my eyes
Weeping for the memory of a life gone by
Dancing with tears in my eyes
Living out a memory of a love that died

Dancing with tears in my eyes
Weeping for the memory of a life gone by
Dancing with tears in my eyes

4. Scary Eyes

I spy with my little eye
Things you ll never see
Whispers burn my eardrum
It s eerie to the feel

I see them crawling up the wall
I see them staring at us all
Am I afraid of what I know

They look at you, they look at me
And as they look inquiringly
They scratch their heads
And watch the show

I can t explain, am I ashamed

Scary eyes watching every move
Fail to make out a reason
Scary eyes tracing what we do
At the tail of us fools

Extraterrestrial you follow me around
Not that I don t like you
Basically you re sound

Welcome to the Stone Age
Don t ask me to explain
Or you will crash the headlines:
Martian gone insane

You can t explain why you re insane

Scary eyes watching every move
Fail to make out a reason
Scary eyes tracing what we do
At the tail of us fools

Why are you afraid of little spider
Not a claudication
Or other complication
Why don t you just be a little wiser
You stick in a relation
Instead of fornication

I can t explain, am I ashamed

Scary eyes watching every move
Fail to make out a reason
Scary eyes tracing what we do
At the tail of us fools

5. In My Defense

[Freddy Mercury Cover]

In my defence what is there to say
All the mistakes we made must be faced today
It’s not easy now knowing where to start
While the world we love tears itself apart
I’m just a singer with a song
How can I try to right the wrong
For just a singer with a melody
I’m caught in between
With a fading dream

In my defence what is there to say
We destroy the love – it’s our way
We never listen enough never face the truth
Then like a passing song
Love is here and then it’s gone

I’m just a singer with a song
How can I try to right the wrong
For just a singer with a melody
I’m caught in between
With a fading dream

I’m just a singer with a song
How can I try to right the wrong
I’m just a singer with a melody
I’m caught in between with a fading dream
Caught in between with a fading dream
Caught in between with a fading dream

Oh what on earth
Oh what on earth
How do I try
Do we live or die

Oh help me God
Please help me

6. Lost In Space (Epic Version)

Another star
has fallen without a sound
Another spark
has burned out in the cold

Another door
to barrens standing open

And who is there
to tell me not to give and not to go

How could I know?, how could I know?
That I’ll get lost in space to roam forever

How could I know?, how could I see?
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

I’m crawling down
The doorway to the badlands
And kicking down

Are you heard: it’s to the black
and all the damage
fading in the oblivion mirror
When the demons
are calling me, their dragging me away

How could I know?, how could I know?
That I’ll get lost in space to roam forever

How could I know?, how could I see?
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

Lost in space
Lost in time
Lost in space
Lost in (Lost In) Time
Lost in Space
Lost in time
Lost in space

How could I know, how could i (how could i) know
How could I know, How could I know
That I’ll get lost in space to roam for ever

How could I now, how could I see
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

Forever…
Forever…
Lost in space
Lost in time……
