Our Imperfect Race

This song is by Arjen Anthony Lucassen and appears on the album Lost in the New Real (2012).

"In their ongoing search for extraterrestrial intelligence, SETI finally has detected a signal that could be some sort of binary code. Is it an alien life form trying to contact us, or just a freak coincidence?"

Could there be other life
In this boundless universe
Would they live just like us
On a planet like the Earth

How would they see us?
Our imperfect race
What would they think of us?
The mess we have made
Or are we doing okay?

Could it be we're not unique
In the vastness of space
Do they know we are here
Are they heading out our way?

Would they condemn us?
Our imperfect race
Maybe they'd pity us?
A breed doomed to fail
Or are we doing okay?

Could it be we're here alone
A tiny sparkle of life
Could it be this is it
A fleeting moment in time

Maybe there's only
Our imperfect race
No one will ever know
And nothing will change
