Stranded in the galaxy

Just beyond the atmosphere

We're orbiting at hyperspeed

Our tiny craft is stuck in gear


But you

You know to survive

You do, you do

You

You know to survive

You do, you do


Praise to Eratosthenes

For measuring the planet round

I'll calculate the time it leaves

Our tiny craft to hit the ground


You

You know to survive

You do, you do

You

You know to survive

You do, you do


Take my hand

That's enough

Take my hand

That's enough

For me


Blazing 'cross the hemisphere

Fire burning off the dross

Sounds strange, but we might make it here

Our tiny craft the only the cost


Cause you

You know to survive

You do, you do

You

You know to survive

You do, you do


Take my hand

That's enough

Take my hand

That's enough

For me


You

You know to survive

You do, you do

You

You know to survive


Take my hand

That's enough

For me
