Track Name: Leave
Verse 1:
I wanna run and hide
from the anger I have inside;
But, I can't get away...
and I'm too stubborn to run anyway.
Do you see what I...
work overtime to keep in side?
Do you wanna know...
the truth about the places I wanna go?

Chorus:
I want to leave this world.
I wanna go far away.
To a place they won't believe
where I came from yesterday.

I want to get moving.
There's no use proving...
that what I mean seems different
from what I say...

Verse 2:
Please don't follow me.
It's not meant to be.
There is no "we." I'm on my way...
To a world where I would love to stay
The lights they flash...
I never thought that I could move this fast
It's all so new...
and I'm finally free from all of you.

Chorus:
I want to leave this world.
I wanna go far away.
To a place they won't believe
where I came from yesterday.

I want to get moving.
There's no use proving...
that what I mean seems different
from what I say...

Chorus (x4):
I want to leave this world.
I wanna go far away.
To a place they won't believe
where I came from yesterday.

I want to get moving.
There's no use proving...
that what I mean seems different
from what I say...
Track Name: Two Guns
Verse 1:
Just collected my reward for the bounty, counting...
Enough here to get the engine done,
but then I laid eyes on the one.
An introduction...
She's from planet 5, moon 1.
1st thing that comes to mind...
close encounter of the 7th kind.
...already 5 drinks in...
in the middle of a warp drive discussion.
We love the same shield generator.
Another call to the waiter.
I woke up; ran to the docking bay
and felt the pain as she turned away.

Chorus:
I had two guns,
but then she fired on me.
I reached, but she had beat me.

I had two guns,
but now I'm stuck in the bay.
My transport's moving away.

Verse 2:
Woke up...in medical,
but I remembered all.
The weapons...and the cash,
I lost it all.
This nurse...
is giving me that look
...and with a smirk, she read me like an open book.
She said...
everybody on the station knows.
Never drink with Thorellian hoes.

Chorus:
I had two guns,
but then she fired on me.
I reached, but she had beat me.

I had two guns,
but now I'm stuck in the bay.
My transport's moving away.

Verse 3:
(Then she said...)
I have...a brand new runner.
I had...two launchers installed
and a new lead gunner.
But, I don't give rides for free...
I realized the new lead gunner was me.
Oooh Wee...she's looking very good in that dress
and I bet she can help get me out of this mess.
Aye, Aye captain...I'm reporting for duty.
Off we go to collect my booty.

Chorus x2:
I had two guns,
but then she fired on me.
I reached, but she had beat me.

I had two guns,
but now I'm stuck in the bay.
My transport's moving away.
Track Name: Plasma Shells
Verse 1:
It didn't take long to locate the tracking beacon
deep inside the quarters for sleepin'
They thought they could get away
Not today, it's not the way that this kid plays
My new captain knows where they roll
where they go to stash all the things they stole
A small moon behind the 4th planet
that they keep shielded so you can't scan it
What they don't know is that my hull
broadcasts RF, laser, and digital
So there's no place that you can run
and when I catch up I'm gonna have me some fun
So go ahead and breach the weapons bay
I got a target lock from long range, by the way
If you think self-destruct will ruin my day
My insurance policy is paid...and I say....

Chorus:
Fuck you. Take 2 plasma shells with you
You won't be back again after my guns get through
From across the galaxy or the system from which you
originate, I will not hesitate to get you.

Fuck you. Take 2 plasma shells with you
You won't be back again after my guns get through
From across the galaxy or the system from which you
originate, I will not hesitate to get you.

Verse 2:
By the time we arrived we were already spotted
and they sent two small scout ships to intercept
and 4 shots later, from white hot lasers
we sent back to small scout ship wrecks
Guess they don't like visitors, but that didn't matter
as we blasted their fighters into anti-matter
They launched the newest Monaldo rocket
Full power to forward shields so I can block it
Just past the moon, not a moment too soon
I spot my transport and I run a scan on my deck
I scored 3 more hits
Destroyed 3 more ships
and sent the lockdown code from the remote around my neck
They must have lost the sale, cause 2 ships bailed
out the back of my transport's bay
They both fired at me, but I'm laughing
'cause they're never gonna get away...and I say...

Chorus x 2:
Fuck you. Take 2 plasma shells with you
You won't be back again after my guns get through
From across the galaxy or the system from which you
originate, I will not hesitate to get you.

Fuck you. Take 2 plasma shells with you
You won't be back again after my guns get through
From across the galaxy or the system from which you
originate, I will not hesitate to get you.
Track Name: Stay
Verse 1:
This rendevouz was better than most
Matter of fact, it started out with a toast
and a meal the likes of which you wouldn't believe
courtesy of the loot we just retrieved
I ate...drank, and got ready to go
she put down her glass and just said 'no'
'we make a good team...dare I say, a pair'
she said, 'It's deeps space...there's nothing out there.'


Chorus:
I know you wanna run away
But, you should just....stay
I know you wanna run away
But, you should just....stay

Verse 2:
What are the odds?
A body by the gods and a mean attitude to match
If I didn't know better, gave in and let her
She'd be great to have like a secret escape hatch
She's weaving her way through my defenses
I gotta shake it off and come to my senses
But, she's good....good
More than I can handle
She whispered in my ear
as she blew out the candle...

Chorus (2x):
I know you wanna run away
But, you should just....stay
I know you wanna run away
But, you should just....stay
Track Name: Engage My Warp Drive
Chorus (2x):
A man hates to leave, but he's gotta keep movin'
There's a new bounty, so I gotta get movin'
I'm the best in the game, competition can't claim
the prize when it's time to engage my warp drive


Verse 1:
1st up, Gallanari #5
Looking for a spy
wanted dead or alive.
Tracked 'em inside
a criminal's hive
& gave him to the count of 5
He tried runnin,
but that won't fly
Cause I fired 2 shots and
hit him right in the eye
'Shut up!' it's too late to cry
Straight to the office
and threw him inside.

Transition:
I'm a professional.
You better be prepared to pay me.
It's non-negotiable.
You must be crazy.
You think it's a game? Well...
I'll show you what this is.
Cause I keep the man,
who makes the bombs, in business

Chorus (2x):
A man hates to leave, but he's gotta keep movin'
There's a new bounty, so I gotta get movin'
I'm the best in the game, competition can't claim
the prize when it's time to engage my warp drive



Verse 2:
Next up...
after 2 jump gates,
Is a cat whose last payment of debt was all fake
Found him on a moon
Not a moment too soon
Hiding under shipping containers and steel crates
Found his hiding spot.
He fired a few shots.
Then I punched him in the face;
now he's sporting a huge knot.
He woke up as I attached the chute...
opened the bay door...and gave him the boot.

Transition:
I'm a professional.
You better be prepared to pay me.
It's non-negotiable.
You must be crazy.
You think it's a game? Well...
I'll show you what this is.
Cause I keep the man,
who makes the bombs, in business

Chorus (4x):
A man hates to leave, but he's gotta keep movin'
There's a new bounty, so I gotta get movin'
I'm the best in the game, competition can't claim
the prize when it's time to engage my warp drive
Track Name: Wounds
Verse 1:
Golden skin, strength within
unaware of the game and the pain that's on the way
Blazing sun, wife and son
sent on a voyage by another and I'm never gonna see 'em again
I feel
the pain cause you were taken away
I feel
the last of your hope as it blows away

Chorus:
I still feel
Pain
I can't heal
Pain

Verse 2:
Distant kin, in bare skin
treated like creatures of a lesser kind
A world away, and every day...
I pray that my life or this nightmare will somehow come to an end
I feel
the pain cause you were taken away
I feel
the last of your hope as it blows away

Chorus (2x):
I still feel
Pain
I can't heal
Pain
Track Name: End of Space
Chorus (2X):
This end of space is cold (cold)
This is the place where life is bought and sold

Verse 1:
I heard the cries
As soon as I touched the ground
I disembarked
checked my gun and looked around
The body I sought
A child about 3 foot 4
As I approached the trading hall
my target stepped through the door
Covered in dirt, with tear stained cheeks
disheveled in the same clothes for 2 weeks
I waited until the auctioneer started to shout
Two shots and the power goes out

Chorus (2X):
This end of space is cold (cold)
This is the place where life is bought and sold

Verse 2:
Are you surprised I would take a rescue mission?
They paid me in cash so shut up and listen
Chaos was the theme of the day
Two shots hit two guards that jumped in the way
I made my way straight to the stage
Trigger pull to the left, shot the lock off the cage
30 slaves made a break to be free
But, 2 older men stopped and turned to thank me
a tip of the hat, threw the kid on my back
then tossed a Ceda Charge where they store the weapons at.

Chorus (2X):
This end of space is cold (cold)
This is the place where life is bought and sold

Chorus (4X):
This end of space is cold (cold)
This is the place where life is bought and sold
Track Name: 1, 2
Chorus (x2)
I got 1 warp drive
2 pulse pistols
and a weapons bay
full of pissed off missiles
You can leave now
or kiss that ship
good - bye cause I'm here
to help you die


It appears they did not appreciate that escape
they shut down the jump gates so they could retaliate
It's a little too late and they can gravitate
to these nuts while i punch in the coordinates
I spot six fighters of the class spit-fire
those ships can shit fire, but my ship' a bit lighter
Bring it on, you fools wan get it then come wit it
My weapons all destroyer class retro fitted
I got nothing but danger for deep space rangers
I got gallows to hang ya constructed in my hanger
Or I can vaporize you with a heated surprise
that'll fill ya planet's skies with blackened eyes & thighs
You can send out ya rookies or your 4 star generals
I'll send 'em back to you in a box as minerals
And on that note, they're within firing range
so I turn the ship around to tell 'em a few thangs


Chorus (x2)
I got 1 warp drive
2 pulse pistols
and a weapons bay
full of pissed off missiles
You can leave now
or kiss that ship
good - bye cause I'm here
to help you die


These idiots chatting on an insecure channel
so I tapped into their comms from my control panel
1st two wanna fly wide formation and limit the
options for escape & create a perimeter
As soon as they broke formation, no hesitation
Napalm hull busters…oxygen conflagration
I hear the screams as two ships careened
of course and burned up in their own defense screen
Four left, that means fourth deaths are on deck
and the two lead ships decided to be next
I focused sunlight on the pilot to the right
while blinded he crashed into the other, good night
Two fighters left in a duel to the death
so I switched off my targeting computer, deep breath
I hit number one with a magnetic rail gun
Last one & like a bitch, he's already on the run

Chorus (x4)
I got 1 warp drive
2 pulse pistols
and a weapons bay
full of pissed off missiles
You can leave now
or kiss that ship
good - bye cause I'm here
to help you die
