He's a man from the government
He's a friend you've never met
He's in a white van down the street
He's been there for at least a week

He wants to know where the money goes
After you collect the souls
He wants to see what you have bought
With the fleece sheared from the flock

This is planet earth

The world didn't end today
Everything looks just the same
There are no saviors in the sky
The prophecies were all a lie

There are no men from planet ten
And you are not an alien
You are like the rest of us
A monkey who has learned to talk

This is planet earth

He's a man from the government
He wants to know where the prophet went
He took off with a case of cash
And left the rocket on the pad

The TV show was a big mistake
Now everyone knows your face
You can't escape the gravity
You can't escape from planet three
