Lyrics:

Entombed on the Moon

VERSES
Pulled from the crater by the gray dust dune
Shot in the helmet by the space platoon
Said the pirate, as he faced his last high noon:
"Please don't leave me entombed on the moon."

We leaned him against our moon buggy wheel
Held in position by rubber and steel
Our medic came over asked "how do you feel"
"Please don't leave me" was the thief's appeal.

Emergency patch so the pressure holds
inside the space suit his body grows cold
"I know that I will pass on soon,
but please don't leave me entombed on the moon."

CHORUS
So bury me not, on this lonesome moon
I lived too fast, but I died too soon
This grey dust devil, it was never for me,
Back on Terra Firma please bury me.

VERSE2
"All I want is to be buried at home,
my family plot outside the iron dome,
by the tainted-ice landscape that lies so bleak
I won't be bothered by the radiation leaks".

The survey team gathered all around the man
Viewing the result of his fateful plan
Amongst the debris his booty was strewn
Afraid he'll end up entombed on the moon.

"Don't ever listen to the siren song
of pirates who want you to come along
For if you do, you will rue the night
You landed upon this satellite"

CHORUS
So bury me not, on this lonesome moon
I lived too fast, but I died too soon
This grey dust devil, it was never for me,
Back on Terra Firma please bury me.

VERSE3
"Please don't leave me," then his talking stopped
His face grew pale, blood pressure dropped
We all knew that it would be over soon
Enshrined for good, his space suit cocoon

We buried him there entombed on the Moon
Where the transports drive by the dried lagoon
And the rail tracks pass by the gloomy ruin
of the doomed pirate's mournful tomb on the moon.

And the crews have marked the lunar surface
of the tomb of the man who wished that earth is
The place where finally his body laid
Instead of his orbital dusty grave

So in a shallow grave, by the gray dust dune
We buried him there, his tomb on the Moon.

CHORUS
So bury me not, on this lonesome moon
I lived too fast, but I died too soon
This grey dust devil, it was never for me,
Back on Terra Firma please bury me.

FINAL VERSE
So in a shallow grave, by the gray dust dune
We buried him there, his Tomb on the Moon.
