lyrics

(computer voice)
You are one thousand miles above the planet's surface.
Please switch to auto-pilot...

(male voice)
Greetings from those who got here before you
You'll need a strong drink, impossible to think
While we are all talking, the kettle is boiling,
Its noise drowning out what we're babbling about.
We'd like to think that we understand everything
Whilst hoping deep down there's still truth to be found
Existence is dull when the magic is gone -
How can we hope when it's so easy to cope?

Greetings from those who got here before you,
Bemoaning our lot and the damn coffee pot
Just keeps on boiling, the potential is spoiling
Before it begins and won't ever stop.
All that we've got is to understand everything
Keeping us firmly nailed onto a ground that's
Strangely mundane, there's no magic to see -
How can we cope when it's so easy to hope?

Greetings from those who got here before you
No designation and no explanations
We're putting up facts like they're paper umbrellas
On permenant loan, to face the unknown
What if we never can understand everything?
Even the coffee pot might yet be found
To harbour some magic we're too dull to find
How can we cope placing hope in our minds?
