"The Mechanical Bride"
(copyright 1996, Bret Dawson and Clive Thompson)

If I went down there now
And got another dose of spores
I really wonder
If I'd come back

I always told myself
I don't want another woman
That you're all I needed
Enterprise

So here we are alone
And I don't know what I should say
That you are my love?
That you've always been?

Chorus
I can fly this piece of metal through the cosmos
And I'll feel good and I'll pretend
That we've just saved the world

I can fly this piece of metal through the cosmos
Then someone else will take her name
And pat me on the back

I wish it weren't so
But I don't see another way
Those murdering bastards
Will be here soon

So please initiate
Sequence Alpha-Alpha-One-A
Scotty give the code
Then beam us out

My God, Bones
What have I done?

What you always do—
Turn death into a fighting chance to live!

Sorry not today
I've already done my part
I'm going up there
To get engaged

But I really missed my chance
We both know this isn't real
I've got nothing left to lose
So I'll help you out

I flew this piece of metal through the cosmos
And I'd feel good and I'd pretend
That we've just saved the world

I flew this piece of metal through the cosmos
Now someone else has got her name
And pats me on the back.
