Aliens 03:35
they set out for a future that would serve the children well through the waters put some distance between themselves and hell they had money they were glad to trade for some documents and a name for family they had photographs, gathered in a frame They learned to speak the native tongue, they had hoped to make a friend but the meaning of the words they never seemed to understand when they tried to make a joke, it somehow didn't seem so kind and with the help of time became what they tried to leave behind they were aliens, in a foreign land searching for a better world, but crashing somewhere else oh they were aliens, something less than man a threat to people's happiness, and trouble for their minds the money wasn't hard to make, but it was hard to keep the hole they made a home in every day a bit more deep when the children had adjusted, had a life to call their own they put to use those documents, across the waters that led back home but they were aliens, in a foreign land searching for a world they knew, but finding something else they were aliens, to their countryman with different views on happiness that troubled the people's mind they kept crossing waters to find a place where they belonged and though they had each other, they couldn't help but feel alone the search became a joke that somehow didn't seem so kind but with the help of time they came to understand that we're all aliens, in a foreign land coming from a better world, and headed somewhere else oh we are aliens, and somehow also man here to bring some happiness, and trouble... because we're aliens, in a foreign land searching for a better world, but crashing somewhere else oh we are aliens, and with our fellow man we're looking for some happiness, and a little peace of mind

If Heaven 04:04
if heaven is a place where no one ever wakes up to the rising of the sun for there's nothing left to do, if I'm headed for some promised land where my purpose is to rest don't sign me up; don't sign me up and if heaven is a place where some make it and some are left out by the choices that were made when we didn't understand, if there's no one left to fight for, there's nothing left to learn, don't sign me up; don't sign me up now get up and open up your eyes, and don't stand by; don't wait for your reward, don't stand by; don't wait for your reward if heaven is a place where the clouds are all beneath us for the softening of our steps, the sky is always blue, if there's not a mountain left to climb or dancing in the rain, don't sign me up; don't sign me up now get up and open up your eyes, and don't stand by; don't wait for your reward, don't stand by; don't wait for your reward 'cause there's a morning on the rise with a dark and scattered mind and there's a chance to be alive if heaven is a place, if today is just a memory, if redemption has to wait, if we are not the world, if time can drive a wedge between myself and God, don't sign me up; don't sign me up

Revolutions 06:10
voices proclaim a revolution, innocent man, you're seen as the solution hands rise in hope of execution, but will we stand? this world, a part of the illusion, the feelings of man, another institution combined, a sinister collusion, and fear, the son don't yield now hate not one love endowed we are strong silence, a weapon of delusion, fiddles and rhymes, aiming for confusion fire! reversing evolution, what have we won? don't yield now hate not one love endowed we are strong I came along as a father, I came along as a friend I came along as your mother, and you took me by the hand, woa, woa I came along as your brother, I came looking for a friend I came along for my daughters, and I ain't going back again, no-o, no-o
