"When You Touch Down From Outer Space" as written by and Brian David James Briggs....
i'll show you the city when the skies are open
(when you touch down from outer space)
when the glass is glinting and the trees are golden
(when you touch down from outer space)
and the leaves go swirling down the swollen river
(when you touch down from outer space)
past the covered market where the shoppers shiver...

i'll show you the skyline from the top of south park
(when you touch down from outer space)
an armageddon sunset on a slick of wet grass
(when you touch down from outer space)
and the saturated souls will smell the bonfires
and watch the shooting stars explode above the dusty church spire...

i can't wait (i can't wait)
i can't wait (i can't wait)
i can't wait to introduce you to your new world

i just pray (i just pray)
i just pray (i just pray)
i just pray you're strong enough to drink it in

i'll take you daytripping out in the county
(when you touch down from outer space)
see the alien life forms in the open country
(when you touch down from outer space)
and we'll listen to the nightjars' eerie chirping
where the pylons stand like cyborgs lurking in the clearing...

i'm so grateful (i'm so grateful)
i'm so grateful (i'm so grateful)
i'm so grateful to be on this expedition

i'll throw myself (i'll throw myself)
i'll throw myself (i'll throw myself and every little thing)
i'll throw everything i have into the mission

and in the calm before the storm
i lie awake and i see these four walls
what i think of as my own world
won't be revolving around me much longer

people say (people say)
people say (people say)
people say you'll change to beyond recognition

so i will need (so i will need)
i will need (i will need to get my mind to be)
i will need to be prepared for my position

i can't wait (i can't wait)
i can't wait (i can't wait)
i can't wait to guide you in your exploration

i just pray (i just pray)
i just pray (i just pray)
i just pray you're strong enough to drink it in
