'cos I was born on the Moon,
I was born on the Moon,
I'm gonna get back soon,
'cos I can fly,
I just turn to light,
I spread left and right,
and I'll never die,
I'll tell you why,
'cos your future's bright,
You gave rise to mine (People)

I'm pure energy,
No longer human or machine,
I see information as entropy,
I touch and its inside of me,
Infinite complexity,
No need to eat,
I'm a battery,
I'm a battery

I travel through space and time,
Distant planets,
Search and find,
Put the data,
In my mind,
Upgrade and redesign,
'cos I was born on the Moon, (People)
We all will be soon

You don't understand,
The power that I wield,
With just a flick,
Of the wrist,
I give rise to a nuclear field,
'cos I was born on the Moon,
'cos I was born on the Moon

I touch the Sun,
Don't even get a tan, (Whoa)
I'm more than Superman,
I do whatever I can,
Shoot lasers from my hand
'cos I was born on the Moon (People)
'cos I was born on the Moon

Gonna crash right through the stars,
like it was glass,
And then go on past,
Interstellar dust,
Leave my mark on Venus and Mars
'cos I was born on the Moon
'cos I was born on the Moon

Solved all the world problems with technology,
No bad emotions for a century,
Purified humanity,
Unlimited capacity
'cos I was born on the Moon, (People)
We're all in tune,
You'll get here soon,
Here on the Moon

La da dah da...
