Space Thief Austin

When the genre police visited the space thief in his iron cell, they found they could not commit a name to his crime, and were crippled litigiously by his whimsy.

Track Name: Blast Off
look at the trees
what is it that you despise
to leave them behind

look at the sky
what is it that you see
where you want to be

as in your eyes you see the world spinning round and round again
it's everything you know
and darkness grows around until it's just a tiny speck behind
of everything you know
as in your eyes you see a million stars between yourself and home
and everyone you know
Track Name: Midnight Satellite
midnight satellite is taking flight
everything will be all right
find yourself in another world
whichever world may find you
when the midnight satellite arrives
this will be the best of your lives
Track Name: Awe
there's a light
that's always shining
deep inside
of your heart
there's a part of you always in awe

for the world that's moving
and always turning your universe

there's a fire
that's always burning
deep inside
of your eyes
there's a part of you always in awe

don't put that fire out
don't let it stop burning at your insides
Track Name: All the Songs
you only turn around when it's over
I was right behind you the whole time
and when you hit the ground it's over
I was right beside you the whole time

when all the songs you sang into the trees
couldn't make them grow
you prayed to all the gods to raise the seeds
so they might last forever

you only come around when it's over
I was right behind you the whole time
and when you came around it was over
I am right beside you every time

when all the songs you sang into the sea
couldn't wash you clean
you prayed to all the gods you'd never see
but they don't last forever
nothing lasts forever
not even songs
Track Name: The Gods Never Fought for Us
this was the world we never cared for
we fought to control every piece
we fought to destroy one another
while cursing the soil that we stood on
and now we can never go back

this was the world that we died for
we never could cope with peace
we couldn't accept one another
we fought for the gods that we prayed on
but they never fought for us
and now they're gone
Track Name: Obsolescence Overdrive
another train is rolling through the countryside
leaving our todays behind
bringing forth the progress of a golden age
the obsolescence of our time

a subtle wind is blowing through the cool night sky
hinting at tomorrow's tide
whispering sweet riddles through the golden leaves
yesterday is far from our minds

in the future:
- we live on rocket ships
- we can live forever
- there are no more wars
- all our dreams come true

so look up, little children, don't forget the sky
let the sun into your eyes
tomorrow we'll recall this as a golden lie
the old myth of a world that died
Track Name: Ghosts
living in a wicked world
where stars are barely gleaming
they fall into the blackest holes
while searching for the meaning

living in a wicked world
where anger is respected
for all the tomes of peace we love
the wars have never ended

living in a wicked world
where everything is dying
we pray to the god of war
and everyone is tithing

living in a wicked world
we couldn't wait to start
we've practiced every sin we know
we've learned them all by heart

oooOOOOoooo

ghosts drag us down
Track Name: Don't Let Go
when your dreams collide
and you can't seem to find
a way to carry on
hold on

and when you're lost in darkness
and you're all alone
and you can't find a friend
hold on

and when you're falling apart
always stopped
can't seem to ever start
and you're losing control
and you're breaking, oh
hold on tight
the world moves fast
don't let it throw you

when you've missed your chance
at fame, and glory
at fortune, and romance
hold on
it comes back around

and when you wanted more
but hope is gone
love ran out the door
and left you crying
and you needed someone
but there's no one left anywhere
anymore
hold on tight
the world moves fast
don't let it throw you

don't let it throw you over the edge
don't let go
Track Name: Midnight Satellite Reprise (We Can Celebrate)
tonight
everything will be all right
in the midnight satellite

tonight
everything will be all right
when the midnight satellite
arrives

and when the morning comes
we can celebrate
all that we've become
wherever we are
and all we've left behind
wherever we are
we can celebrate
