lyrics

the morning was low
in white autumn clouds
then the evening came down
with the sun to the ground

the garden was neat
the soil was swept
they grew peaches so sweet
for the creatures they kept

but no sweetness can grow
no nectar will flow
when you're praying to god
but the soil doesn't know

and the money was gone
and their fingers were numb
and they waited so long
for the space race to come

travelling west
with nowhere to go
such hope in their chests
left in pools by the road

chasing a sign
some signal in the wind
a promise of light
for those who have sinned

caressing the breeze
down on lover's bent knees
it reads: there's fruit in those trees
there's fish in that sea

and the road struggled on
and the travellers were numb
and they waited so long
for the space race to come

this country was built
by a hundred great men
and we'll build it again
when the signal is sent

and the men they were brave
took what stood in their way
those natives now slaves
made this country great

and the men spilt the blood
of the hopeless and damned
spilt out with their hope
tried to baptise the land

and the land it grew strong
and the people struck dumb
and they waited so long
for the space race to come
