O're the Warp and Far Away

O'er the Warp and Far Away
A NAC shanty....

(sung to the tune of Over the Hills and Far Away)
Traditional arrangement mucked up by Carlos Lourenco
 

Here's forty credits on the drum,
to any spacer that'll come.
Making transit once a day,
O'er the warp and far away.
 

Chorus:
Oe'r the warp and o'er the main,
to Alpha Centauri and New Spain.
The NAC commands and we obey,     [Pronounce NAC as "nak"]
Oe'r the warp and far away.
 

No power armor for us poor sods,
wherever we go, we have to slog.
The interface lander never stays,
it goes back through the warp and far away.
(Chorus)

It's bad enough to fight a man,
blasted from orbit by tin cans.
But we must fight Kra'vak today
Oe'r the hills and far away.
(Chorus)

Karla uses railguns,
one hit from that and you'll be done.
Fighting them can turn you gray,
Oe'r the warp and far away.
(Chorus)

Strapped in a lander we wait and sit.
Ok boys now this is it,
We're off to make a drop today
O'er the warp and far away
(Chorus)

The hull she screetches something bad,
beams and missles bathe us in heavy rad.
I trust in God to come what may,
O'er the warp and far away.
(chorus)

Now me boots is on the ground
In my element I do abound
The foe shall meet my deadly ray
O'er the warp and far away
(Chorus)

Extraction finds us many less,
they've been touched by fingers of death.
Take me back home I sit and pray,
O'er the warp and far away.
(chorus)

If on a distant planet I should fall,
far away from our lovely blue ball.
I'll meet you in a better place,
Oe'r the warp and far away.
(chorus)

Oe'r the warp and o'er the main,
To Alpha Centauri and New Spain.
The NAC commands and we obey,
Oe'r the warp and far away.
(chorus)
