lyrics

TROUBLE ON THE MOTHERSHIP

They found the Holy Grail for sale on E-bay
Sold to a nameless, faceless DJ
A teenage found on the freeway
Looking for a misplaced, disgraced Saturday

It ceases, picking up the pieces
Flowing freely, feels so easy
Through Brick Town, to the low ground
Through to the bridge - something big still going down

At the zoo there's a few
That have left the boneyard
N.F.G. written on the placard
Cool breeze still bringing in the smell
Of a car in flames in a lane near Hell

Nice planet! We'll take it!
Not in that colour but we only need the half of it
We've cracked it, feels fantastic
Can't stay 'cos there's trouble on the Mothership

On the Mothership, on the Mothership

Got cones on the Yellow Brick Road
Got a hole in the sky where the ozone goes
Deep down they caught you thinking
Better keep it up 'cos the eyes are blinking
Missed it, drinking, listing, sinking
Missed it, drinking, listing, sinking

One choice - stick or twist?
Can't stay 'cos there's trouble on the Mothership
We've cracked it, feels fantastic
Can't stay 'cos there's trouble on the Mothership

They found the Holy Grail for sale on E-bay
Sold to a nameless, faceless DJ
A steel age, teenage, found on the freeway
Looking for a misplaced, disgraced Saturday

Can't stay 'cos there's trouble on the Mothership
Can't stay on the Mothership
