Galactic Cowboys Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. I'm Not Amused (6:25)
A cloak of mystery, a beating heart
He prays for sympathy, they do their part

Can't you see it's not amusing anymore
We're not amused by all the blood upon your floor
It's going farther than it's ever been before
Oh, can't you see it's not amusing anymore

No look of innocence in deep blue eyes
So weathered through the years, the young one cries
A starry night in May, he slipped away
They find his shallow grave, someone will pay

Can't you see it's not amusing anymore
We're not amused by all the blood upon your floor
It's going farther than it's ever been before
Oh, can't you see it's not amusing anymore

We're not amused!
2. My School (6:42)
My mind is like a video of memories, but I don't know if I'm crazy
In the classroom I would pray I wouldn't have to read that day, I was lazy
People thought but didn't say, I turn the page of red and gray...I'm bolder
The golden boys who got the girls are going bald with no more curls, they're older
Well, the moon is full tonight and I'm going back, tell me where you are tonight
'Cause I'm going back to my school, going back to my school

Teachers smirked but never knew what I had inside and when I'd grow I'd show them
But I realized the other day it wouldn't matter what they'd say, I'd know when
Well, the moon is full tonight and I'm going back, tell me where you are tonight
'Cause I'm going back to my school, going back to my school

You locked me up inside, my feelings I denied
Well, the moon is full tonight and I'm going back, tell me where you are tonight
'Cause I'm going back to my school, going back to my school
Tell me where you are, oh, tell me where you are tonight
Oh, tell me where you are tonight?
3. Why Can't You Believe in Me (6:33)
Stranger things happen to a boy like me, clearing out my senses for reality
Seems everyone I meet sees through me
They're always trying to pursue me
Oh, reaching out! Oh, calling out!

Why can't you believe in me? Oh! Why can't you believe in me! Oh!

Silhouette kneeling in a garden, tears falling down like rain
Knowing that soon they will pursue him
They always seem to misconstrue him
Oh, he's reaching out. Oh, calling out.

Why can't you believe in me? Oh! Why can't you believe in me! Oh!
4. Kaptain Krude (5:56)
Sailing on the ocean stewed
Feel asleep while steering...Kaptain Krude!
Had a bit too much of the brew
There is a rock approaching...Kaptain Krude!

Into the crystal water spewed
A liquid devastation...Kaptain Krude!
Spilling black into the blue
Why have the fish stopped swimming...Kaptain Krude!

Take a slide on the slick, take a swim and you'll stick
Take a ride with Kaptain Krude
Take a slide on the slick, take a swim and you'll stick
Take a ride with Kaptain Krude
Take a slide on the slick, take a swim and you'll stick
Take a ride with Kaptain Krude
Take a slide on the slick, take a swim and you'll stick
Take a ride with Kaptain Krude
Aye yai yai yai yai yai yai yai...Kaptain Krude!
Aye aye aye aye aye...Kaptain Krude! Aye aye aye aye aye aye!
5. Someone for Everyone (6:26)
When the final sun has set in the sky
Didn't want to be alone, didn't want to be alone
Remembering the days when horses couldn't fly
And the earth was my home, didn't want to be alone
Sailed the galaxy to find where you are, my father used to say...

There is someone for everyone, there is someone for everyone
Well my father said don't worry son, there is someone for everyone

Floating weightless in an infinite space
Don't want to be alone, don't let me be alone
Exploration for a heavenly face
A love of my own, don't let me be alone

Always searching for that one perfect star, filled with sorrow on the way
By the journey's end you'll know who you are, my father used to say...

Don't abandon me, Please don't abandon me...
Sailed the galaxy to find where you are!
6. Sea of Tranquility (7:22)
Passing through Shanghai, looking down, on my way to Bombay, looking down
I was in search for something, looking down, a little out of the ordinary, looking down

There is a place in space beyond our sense of time, there is a time beyond space!
Sea of Tranquility!

A patchwork quilt of sea and land, leave the ground
The magic of the creator's hand, looking down
A kaleidoscope view that changes in flight, speed of sound
A cosmic array of artistic delight, speed of light

There is a place in space beyond our sense of time, there is a time beyond space!
Sea of Tranquility!

Dream soaring high. Dream soaring high.

There is a place in space beyond our sense of time, there is a time beyond space!
Sea of Tranquility!
7. Kill Floor (5:06)
Man has got to work to eat, and this is what I do 5 days a week
I'm at this place from 9 to 5, I get a salary for taking life

They send 'em in, I send 'em out
My hammer carries a lot of clout
Blood doesn't bother me no more
They put me on the kill floor, workin' on the kill floor!

Death has become a way of life, I see the bills and hear my nagging wife
I spend my day inflicting pain, this kind of job could drive a man insane
Don't feel compassion anymore, they put me on the kill floor

There's nothing to do when I check out, so me and my hammer go house to house
Working on the kill floor...
8. Pump Up the Space Suit (1:19)
Transmission:

Houston, we've got a problem here!...

Stuck up here in outer space with a bubble around my face
Would have stayed if I only knew before too long my skin turns blue...
pump - up - the - space - suit!

Big problem I do supposegot a kink in my oxygen hose
Now I'm feelin' really dumb before too long my skin turns numb...
pump - up - the - space - suit!... Pump -- up -- the -- space -- suit!

End of Transmission
9. Ranch on Mars Reprise (2:10)
No more talking time to land...galactic cowboys
You give me hope you understand...galactic cowboys
Roped my media's lasso...galactic cowboys
They all want a piece of you...galactic cowboys

Someday you'll live among the stars, maybe own a ranch on Mars
Galactic cowboys never age! (& I repeat)
Someday you'll live among the stars, maybe own a ranch on Mars
Galactic cowboys never age!
10. Speak to Me (11:31)
Three o'clock in the morning, voice inside my head
I'm wide awake I should be sleeping, voice alive or dead
Someone screaming out a warning, should I heed the call
A messenger I should be knowing, voice inside my head

I made it through another year
Crying yet another tear
Pondering the endless questions of life

My undivided attention, voice returns again
The pressure builds I feel the tension, voice inside my head
What should I do with all you've given, discern the ring of truth
I'm not the kind to be so driven, the choice is up to you

I made it through another year
Crying yet another tear
Pondering the endless questions of life
I made it through another year
Crying yet another tear
Pondering the things I dream in the night

You know just what to say
Speak to me.

Three o'clock in the morning, voice inside my head
A word of peace my mind is soaring, remember what He said
In the silence He is calling, direction is made clear
A message to my heart imploring, voice of God I hear

I made it through another year
Drove away another tear
Pondering the endless questions of life
I made it through another year
Pushed away another fear
Pondering the things I dream in the night

Nothing's quite the same after You speak to me

Speak to me
