Story behind the song
Part III: Inside Klaatu - I am lost; I can't scream. I forgot how to dream. Blackness seeps into my veins; cold hate creeps within my brain.
Part II: Taken - I want you to remind me that if my body ever leaves the ground like this, then something's probably amiss, because this gravity thing is pretty strong and it always keeps me ground; I can't get around it. But somehow I am high in the sky and I don't know why, but I get the feeling I'll be gone for a long time. So please go see my lovely wife and please tell her that I love her, and I guess you'd better tell her goodbye.
Part I: Pleased to Make Your Acquaintance - A man came up to me and said, "I'd like to buy your planet, kind sir." I said, "It's not mine to sell, but you're welcome to stay." He said, "That's OK, I don't like doing business anyway. I'll just go ahead and take it from you, if that's all right with you."
