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...

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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
