Dressed in a spacesuit out walking the pavement
The night is my own starry dome
The kids on the bus will assume fancy dress,


But I spend the spacewalk alone
Kissing the concrete I'm glad to be back home
My terra-formation complete
Takes me a light-year to move half a mile
But I smile and keep it discreet

In the night so long and restless,
Where I spend my time
In a place so cold and restless
You can lose your mind
We were here.

Asleep in the bathroom I try not to disturb the neighbours
My room is a galaxy, time is a fallacy inversed
When you're alone you're alone til the end
The Reaper's reward is two fools to befriend
My mind splays around insane satellites
Cut adrift

In the night so long and restless,
Where I spend my time
In a place so cold and restless
You can lose your mind
We were here.

Be my friend
Hold My hand
I'm so lonely
Guide me to the end

In the night so long and restless,
I can spend my time
In a place so cold and restless
You can lose your mind
We were here.

Apparently they misuse units in the same way Han does.
