"The Parish of Space Dust" as written by Jimmy Webb, Damon Albarn, Jamie Christopher Hewlett, Ralph Freed, John Avery Noble, Larry Boone, Ronnie G. Dunn and Paul Norris Jr. Nelson....
Oh Texas can you hear me?
Speed up on the dawn.
To the plains and blues of Houston
In the sun.

Where home is a rust
In the parish of space dust
Where the mountains die,
And today is golden.

    General CommentI think its about 2-D mocking the "Redneck" lifestyle of some parts of America as he grows more and more homesick.

    General CommentThis song seems to be about the scenery and vibe of Texas. The drive through Texas is brutal and dry, especially driving away from the scenery surrounding it. I think this album was written in a tour bus while touring the states. Texas is a realy hyped state with much pride, but the drive through texas is a devestating one.

    General CommentOh Texas, can you hear me?
    Speed upon the dawn
    To the pinks and blues of Houston
    To the sun
    Where home is a bus
    In the parish of space dust
    (where the mountains die)
    and today is golden
