As we return to earth, memories are haunting me
My strange rebirth, coming back to life
I remember the dark and how my friends set me free
I sacrificed my life so they could survive

There's something wrong on planet Earth
We can not reach our world
Some strange device slowly emerged
Can you hear the cries?

There's something wrong, what can we do?
We can't communicate
All systems fail, all power too
We can't reply

It must be unaware of the damage it's creating
They are reaching out to the seven seas
It's not with man they're communicating
We're going back in time, back in history

There's something wrong, what can we do?
We can't communicate
All systems fail, all power too
We can't reply

We shape life, we travel space
But we don't know the words to the songs of the ocean
We survived the 'human race'
But we don't know the words to the songs of the ocean

There's something wrong on planet Earth
We can't reply

We shape life, we travel space
But we don't know the words to the songs of the ocean
We survived the 'human race'
But we don't know the words to the songs of the ocean

I remember the dark and how my friends set me free
I sacrificed my life so they could survive

There's something wrong, what can we do?
We can't communicate
All systems fail, all power too
We can't reply

We shape life, we travel space
But we don't know the words to the songs of the ocean
We survived the 'human race'
But we don't know the words to the songs of the ocean
[x8]

    General CommentDamnit why is nobody commenting on Star One's stuff? I've been listening to Space Metal non-stop, and have been trying to dissect the songs. Obviously most of them are based on Sci-Fi movies/books.......though it doesn't quite fit, the traveling time and bit about speaking to the oceans makes me think this might be about that Star Trek film where the alien ship comes to talk to the now extinct humpback whale. Thoughts?

    General CommentI think it's mostly about the Star Trek film with the whales. But the first verse seems like it's about another Star Trek film - 'Genesis', I think, where Spock sacrifices himself to save the crew and is later brought back to life.
