There's magic in our present tense not coincidence, but fate
Stopping by woods to make new friends and buy some lemonade
The twist and turns we take in life, the epiphanies they bring
An impromptu gift from my dear wife, your rocket ship key ring

Let's break out of our orbits free of gravity's effect
Let's leave our little planets fix relationships we've wrecked
Un-learn all our habits make sure we all connect
The Human Race has aimed toward space since Man first walked erect

Voyager One, the NASA probe got to outer space today
With a platter made of solid gold for aliens to play
It makes its trip for all of us, a record of Mankind's song
Ultimately superfluous because we don't get along

Let's break out of our orbits fix the world we all neglect
We share this little planet our neighbors need respect
Un-learn all our habits make sure we all connect
The Human Race has aimed toward space since Man first walked erect

Man first walked erect, man first walked
Man first walked erect

Let's break out of our orbits fix the world we all neglect
We share this little planet our neighbors need respect
Un-learn all our habits make sure we all connect
The Human Race has aimed toward space since Man first walked erect

There must be life in outer space but I'm moved by closer things
A friendly face, a familiar place, Susan's rocket ship key ring

When an animal is in a trap of course it tries to run
But we've evolved beyond that crap so throw away the gun
Throw it away

Now, if the cosmos speaks to you in a voice you can't ignore
Don't pass it off as deja-vu like you've seen it all before (Seen it all before)
