we're the great

we're the great
you and i by fate
somedays we'll say
never stay -
leave this place one day

were the great we are
man ventured far
a blazing char
to planet stars
let's come back from mars

are we the great once was
broken battered brittle fuzz
jaws clamped down teeth still shut
ties severed wounds still cut
me and you can we still trust
a pining galaxy twice thrice lust
