Track Name: Space Vampire
Space Vampire...
Space Vampire...
Space Vampire!
Track Name: Enceladus
You're as cold as Enceladus
There's no room in your heart for heat
You flew above this mortal dust
There's no space in your life for me

You're as cold as Enceladus
Your fingers freeze my tender skin
You gave into this human lust
You've embraced the deadly sin

Your eyes are a vacuum
Light cannot escape their gravity
You've chosen to be untrue
And there's no hope left in the galaxy

You're as cold as Enceladus
You turned your back on my embrace
You abandoned our sacred trust
And now you're lost to blackened space
Track Name: Beyond the Black Galaxy
We have flown the warp of space,
beyond the walls of time
At the edge of the unknown
we begin our reckless climb
We shall seek whatever lies
on the other side

Beyond the Black Galaxy
Beyond the Black Galaxy

We are well prepared,
we are ready to explore
Our minds are crystal clear,
our hearts are clean and pure
Legends say no one returns
from the other side

Beyond the Black Galaxy
Beyond the Black Galaxy

We have flow the warp of space,
beyond the walls of time
At the edge of the unknown
we begin our reckless climb
We shall seek whatever lies
inside the human mind

Beyond the Black Galaxy
Beyond the Black Galaxy
Track Name: Beasts of Venus
The jungle cries of birds and beasts
Here the sun sets in the east
Force screens all that stand between us
You and me and the beasts of Venus

Exiled here because of love
Imprisoned with no moon above
Only our thoughts and words to feed us
You and me and the beasts of Venus

Machines of Earth outlawed emotion
We were damned by our devotion
A poetic hell meant to demean us
You and me and the beasts of Venus

We cannot touch, we cannot see
A torturous proximity
Cold logic designed to wean us
You and me and the beasts of Venus

You and I are the beasts of Venus
Track Name: This Uranium Heart
My heart's as heavy as U-238
The fallout rays keep on streaming down
There's no lead parasol for this lonesome doll
Only nuclear nightmares on the edge of town

My heart's as heavy as U-238
My cobalt blues are radon red from crying
It's like World War III, now that you've cut me free
My lungs ache with all these sighs I'm sighing

But this uranium heart
Will rise above and glow again
Yes this uranium heart
Will someday be on the mend

My heart's as heavy as U-238
Nuclear winter's done set in
In this aftermath I'll write an epitaph
And I'm all alone without a friend
Track Name: Voyager
I am breaking free of the limits
I am on my way to where
no machine has gone before
And I will tell you what I find
when I get there

I, I, I am
I am voyager
Ambassador
to the stars

I am rising above the challenge
I am now beyond the heliopause
No machine has gone this far before
And I will sing you songs of
fire and awe

I, I, I am
I am voyager
Ambassador
to the stars
I, I, I am
I am voyager
Messenger
to the void

I was born seventy-seven
When I left the dirt and entered heaven
I will fly 'til 25
Unless I find another way to survive

I am returning to your world
I am coming home so fast
No machine has gone so far
And I am bringing answers
home at last
Track Name: Satellite, Satellite
Satellite, Satellite sending signals to the Night
Our hopes and dreams, our fears and fright
What are we inviting to our home?

Satellite, Satellite, sending love songs to the stars
Our history, our mysteries, our visions, and our words
Why do we hope we're not alone?

Satellite, Satellite, sending messages to the void
Our whispered yearnings, our shouts of joy
When will we receive an answer?

Satellite, Satellite, sending notes no more
No dreams and hopes, just the silence left by war
Why didn't anyone answer?
Track Name: (Goodbye) Orange Skies (of Titan)
I touched down on Titan back in 2634
Just another miner out to make a score
Hydrocarbons, even more than we need
To power the fastest ships at ever faster speeds

You touch down on Titan and they hand you the keys
To a drilling rig and a map of the seas
They say good luck and send you off on your way
They don't tell you that you'll never escape (to say)

Goodbye Orange Skies (Goodbye)

I dream of green Europa
Terraformed and bright
I dream of starry skies
And cinnamon scented nights

Goodbye Orange Skies (Goodbye)

Days and nights on Titan are exactly the same
Just boring orange light and gasoline rain
Years pass so slowly, but somehow rush by
I'm here with nothing to show in 2649

Fifteen years on Titan, I played by the rules
They kept 10 years of my profits, "to pay for the tools"
I finally paid off those scumbags, so now I can fly
I just have to get through one last run alive (to say)

Goodbye Orange Skies (Goodbye)
