I have flashbacks of you, from when I was so young 
I thought you left me, to explore this vast galaxy for mankind 
You taught me how to survive on this big, banged up, revolving planet 
Leaving your footprint for one to use and making me all very confused 

"Is that you, our founding fathers, in the bright night sky?" 
Are you coming home, just to check on us or for a final goodbye? 
Show us your calling card, but don't let us all lose our mind 
Tell us where you went and why you left us all behind

You made structures out of large stones and pointed bricks 
Different coloured men from all over, have drawn images on ones wall 
Men study lost language that they can't truly understand, at all 
Heavy hauling and perfect angles, were they done using a bag of tricks? 

"Is that you, our founding fathers, in the bright night sky?" 
Are you coming home, just to check on us or for a final goodbye? 
Show us your calling card, but don't let us all lose our mind 
Tell us where you went and why you just left us behind

Moe's lambs and Chris's hens always fighting over their goods 
while those wandering dews, slip through to form geometric cracks 
The world's weak, struggle for food and carry their beds on scorched backs 
as the Earls and Dukes, live behind security gates, in phoney neighbourhoods

"Is that you, our founding fathers, in the bright night sky?" 
Are you coming home, just to check on us or for a final goodbye? 
Show us your calling card, but don't let us lose our mind 
Tell us where you went and why you just left us behind.
