We've been here so long
Still I remember
The rainy September

Contact

Two, four, one, ten Two, four, one, ten
Am I transmitting?
Is anyone listening?
Contact

Two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I still willing
To foot all this billing?
Contact

We are green and gray
The longness of semper
Still I remember
Contact

Two, four, one, ten
Two, four, one, ten
Am I transmitting?
Is anyone listening?
Contact

Riding on our shiny metal horses
Singing a rider's song
One of us will be forgotten
The other one's wrong

Two, four, one, ten Two, four, one, ten
Am I still willing
To foot all this billing?
Contact

When I think of you
Your name's in the sky
Ninety feet high
Contact

Riding on our shiny metal horses
Singing a rider's song
One of us will be forgotten
The other one's wrong

    General CommentOther comments have missed the actual theme of the song, aliens.

    "Contact", as in "first contact" refers to just that.

    Green and grey are the two most common colors in our current representation of aliens, the Roswell Greys and the little green people.

    Shiny metal horses refers to spaceships.

    I can't find direct references to "rainy september", but Voyager 1 was launched on a September.

    2 4 1 10 might be a bible verse, but in the movie signal, the aliens start the communication with a string of numbers in the same way.
