High Moon



Memories come back to me, it's the 22nd century

Unthinkable events occur on the 3rd moon of Jupiter


I'd leave this hellhole if I could

The mining's hard but the pay is good

There is only one way to survive

I take the drug to stay alive


The shuttlecraft has landed, the killers have arrived

I know I'm alone here, there is no one on my side

I'm ready for the showdown, so let the chase begin

I will not be defeated

I have made a solemn vow to leave here soon

Marshal's wife:

High moon


The company is trying to hide the higher rates of suicide

Here's no pain and much to gain, but then the drug destroys their brain


I gotta leave this evil place

I don't belong in outer space

Outside it's zero atmosphere

The only way to get out of here


He had to choose between his part in this machine

Or going back with her to earth

He never had a choice, but when he heard her voice

He fought for all that he was worth


I had to choose, I could not lose

Had to get back to you

I had no choice, I heard your voice

I had to survive, had to stay alive
