Lyrics:

(since there are no actually offical lyrics for this song i had to get them by ear, and 
this song Bert mumbles a couple of times, so, fo a couple of lines i have no idea what 
says)

Verse 1:
Traveling on space highway,
Three long years to this day.
A billion million trillion miles.
Home is a long, long way away.

[break 1]

Verse 2:
From bow to stern she’s 20 miles long,
Ten miles high and wide.
A beautiful swan in a silent sea,
No water to slow her down.

[break 2]

Verse 3:
Sometimes it seems we’re motionless,
Caught between time and space.
Other tiny star systems rush headlong by.
(?) Signs are bursting in the rain (?)

[Break 3]

Verse 4:
No earthly sound can penetrate,
This black and endless void.
Only thoughts and dreams,
Of the unborn babes,
Where your body and fill your mind.

[Break 4]

Verse 5:
Every day down those quiet canyons,
Like a love that’s for the stars.
And people that shop at the market place,
And the ship loads ever, ever on.

[Break 5]

Verse 6:
If ever we come to our promised land,
Gotta take the shuttle (?)
For the black swan never ever wants to rest
Never stops to say goodbye.


i think it's mostly corrent, i made use of the live version on youtube and the recording 
make this tab...
