Track Name: We Come In Peace
Have no fear we are no threat to you
Though we must look out of place
We've traveled so far just to get to you
Across the region you call "space"

We come in peace
Like you've heard so many times before
Our home is found
In a galaxy you've yet to explore with your spaceships and your satellites

We're strangers now but we hope to change that soon

We have tendencies towards friendliness
Though some of us are mean
We have tentacles for appendages
And most of us are green

We love your home
And we think you're going to love ours too
We hope you'll find
That it's full of wonderful things to do with your good friends and your families

We're strangers now but we hope to change that soon
Track Name: Take Us To Your Leader
It's true what they've been sayin'
Your planet is decayin'
And I'm the guy that's making it happen

A buddy of mine has invented a ray gun
And I'm the guy who gets to do the zappin'

I guess you could run
I guess you could hide
But run and hide for all that you're worth
(it won't save you)
'Cause me and a couple of guys
Have decided to vapourize
The Earth

Don't take us to your leader
It's not that type of deal
The ray gun's designed
With the Earth's destruction in mind
So you'd better start ordering your last meal

It's true what you've been hearin'
Your planet's disappearin'
And I'm the guy who's gettin' the credit

The Earth is becoming an uninhabitable place
And if you think you're going to save it just forget it

'Cause I'm comin' next week
I've got havoc to wreak
So go ahead and plan your final day

Kiss your family goodbye
Be afraid of the sky

'Cause I'm comin' to blow your planet away
Track Name: Cheering For Mars
Back when I was younger I could see past the stars
Protect the world from men on Mars and keep her safe

Safe from those who'd see her fall
A champion to one and all
Defender of the rock I call
The Earth

I turned twelve, I dimmed the light
I started thinking Mars was right
Decided I would throw the fight

When the Earth War came I'd be cheering for Mars
Couldn't see why I shouldn't
Already tried to save the world but I couldn't
Track Name: I Think I'll Live In A Tree
I think that something went wrong
Something is taking too long
Something just doesn't belong

Maybe it's me
Think I'll climb a tree
And never come down

I think I'll live in a tree
Just for a minute or three
See what I can see

Looking from high up in the sky
Maybe something will click

Just for a little while
Can't let the mail become too big a pile
If I was gone too long I'd surely miss your smile

In fact, just maybe I'll stay
I'll stick around, take it day by day
Living in trees, oh please, what was I thinking anyway?
Track Name: Back On Me
I hesitate to say
And you may already know
But I'm staring at an empty street
Long after you go

And I realize that you are not the world to everyone
But I think you know you are to me
And when you do what you have done

It feels like the world has turned its back on me
It's back on me
