Lyrics:

LIVING ON THE MOON
-------------------VERSE
This faraway outpost
won't be back to Earth soon
Near the south lunar pole
it's life on the moon

I have to wash the dust
every day from my suit
My bones they feel weak
it's life on the moon

Mare Nubium
the Cloudy Lagoon
Earth in Orange Eclipse
it's life on the moon

CHORUS
Living on the Moon
Makes you long for the earth
Will I ever get back
to the place of my Birth
Living on the Moon
Is not what it seems
Meteor alarms
make you wake from your dreams

Living on the Moon
you wait for supplies
You can only leave early
if one of us dies
Living on the Moon
is not for the weak
I miss having weather
today's outlook is bleak

VERSE
We make buildings
from regolith bricks
six times high, hump the dunes
it's life on the moon

beware of radiation,
solar flares
the greenhouse, flowers in bloom
escape from life on the moon

South of Tycho
ice mining a tomb
For Tritium Reactors
it's life on the moon

CHORUS
Living on the Moon
Makes me long for my home
Am I forever doomed
to life in a dome
Living on the Moon
Is not really great
Why did I volunteer -
Im here to populate ?

Living on the Moon
Time often stands still
You can only leave early if
you somehow get killed
Living on the Moon
Not for the faint of heart
I feel really stupid
I thought I was smart

Living on the Moon
Makes you long for the earth
Will I ever get back
to the place of my Birth
Living on the Moon
you wait for supplies
You can only leave early
if one of us dies

Living on the Moon
is not for the weak
I miss having weather
today's outlook is bleak
Living on the Moon
makes you want to just scream
Meteor alarms
make you wake from your dreams
[Exit]
