Lyrics:
Intro/Broadcast Quarantine:
Shine Sun, Drive us On
Wandering through time, Wandering through space
What will become of this misguided race?
This place is wrecked, there’s nothing left
There’s nothing left of our humanity but shreds and our death
So I wander space, I left this place
I left the remnants of humanity on a gravestone in space
But how could this be, that we could not see?
That the entire universe, with life it teems.
Open up your eyes, look to the skies.
The quarantine of humanity will end tonight.
Tonight
Broadcast Quarantined
You got your rock and roll you got your favorite disguise
You got your favorite show you got your eye in the sky
you got your internet and it’s all worldwide you got
Nowhere to run nowhere to hide
I see your smartphones, you hold them up high
you got your planet, I see you broadcast your lives
All your children, all your husbands and wives
are in the broadcast now till the end of their lives.
You got your number, you got your license to drive.
You got your girlfriend you gonna love her tonight.
You’re such a big shot but tell me where will you hide?
You got nowhere to run to nowhere to hide.
You got nowhere to run, nowhere to run.
Run.
Broadcast Quarantined
You want heaven they’re not having your kind
You’re a mess now, to violent to drive
In the universe, you humans all lost your minds
You’re in the quarantine zone and nothing crosses that line
Broadcast Quarantine

Listening/Cosmic Airwaves:
Shine sun.
Drive us on.
Countless stars, carry you far.
Life force of the universe no matter where you are.
So shine, suns.
Unholy din, the fray of the broadcasts in/out into space
They listen a billion races, a billion places
some spinning round stars some hiding out in the black
And listening, always listening.
And if there is one thing, that they listen for it’s when the Earthlings sing
Of their lives and homes, their planet drifting all alone in the universe
Or so it would seem, under quarantine, always listening
Always listening.
When they shine that light, when they find you, in the cold dark night
Know that they’ve been listening, when they find you, listening.
Always listening, listening on the Cosmic Airwaves.
Always listening, listening on the Cosmic Airwaves.
Broadcast Quarantined on the Cosmic Airwaves.

They were already listening when she sings of the honeybee stings
They were already listening when she sang of the honey’s sweet tang
On the cosmic airwaves, on the cosmic airwaves listening.
So when the song was sung, they were listening cause they knew it would come.
On the cosmic airwaves, listening.

Claws of the Universe:
Claws of the Universe.
Sink me Under, Please please bring that honey to me, they sing.
And I’m on the wing.
I got tasty treats from Earth, we all know what it’s worth out here
So you can do what you like, I’m just a voice on the mic.
But pay attention and be careful what you do, nothing is letting you slide,
out into the night, without a little bit of fang and tooth.
The truth is.
It’s the claws of the universe, The claws of the universe.
Fusion is easy, building a ship is easier.
Sweet RV customized by me to do 30 g’s
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
So I take wing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
And I’m on the wing.
Cause I’m the galaxies ice cream man
I drive my honey van
Fast as I can.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
So I take wing, when they sing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
And I’m on the wing.
I bought a light drive with my beehive
I’m on the wing, quick as a blink
I bought a light drive with my beehive
I’m on the wing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
So I take wing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
Please please bring the honey to me they sing.
And I’m on the wing.
