The millions that have wandered
oh so long and oh so far
the time that we have squandered
following an irrational star
when will my million be led home?
when will we find our way home?
The specter of what’s left of us
starfaring tribe our noble race
left waiting for the cosmic bus
the foolish looks left on our Face
When will we wander home?
When will our wanderings take us home?
Ten thousand years ten thousand more
and look at what we’ve come to now
and look at what I’ve come to now
Whatever we may have in store
Still just want to get home somehow
when will our star lead us home?
When will they come to take us home?
