Airport 03:08
When we arrived at the airport chased by slow trains, you said you’d never forget the pleasure and the pain When you gave a report of the coming of the rain you said you’d never let my loss be your gain In the ashes on the streets where we were born you used to be a stranger to me in name and form And as we realise our motives being together like this like brother and sister we regret our kiss

Pleasure center Pleasure center Secret stairway leading down to a cave Got a coded invitation from a special friend Must be one of these rooms where my love lays patiently awaiting our holiday I wanna stop, don’t wanna stop our love, our love Pleasure center Pleasure center Life-like avatar I’ll never know what you feel never reveal who you truly are makes our love more real

Quarantined 04:26
I’m suffocated by the air that’s holding up the sky Never learned to fly I’m left with outlines of a plan Must be a million miles to the nearest food supply and things that beautify I look for breadcrumbs in the sand you can look but you can’t touch you’re free to dream but you’re never in the scene oh, always on the outside looking in they never say a thing you may want but you can’t have you’re quarantined yeah you’re never on the team oh, always on the outside looking in and they’ll never hear you sing All along the great divide insults pull the fishing lines into the endless night the only market in the land And as the years go by agents close the gaps inside I asked too much of life the time has come to pay the tab you can look but you can’t touch you’re free to dream but you’re never in the scene oh, always on the outside looking in they never say a thing you may want but you can’t have you’re quarantined yeah you’re never on the team oh, always on the outside looking in and they’ll never hear you sing

Sonny take a chance Ah, the clock is ticking, fall in line That’s all I ask of you The last ship is leaving for Centauri tonight Settle up with San the chips you bargained for must stay behind all the wetware too The price will be heavy if they take us alive They say the city’s green and bright there’s nonstop entertainment on all decks space enough to truly unwind I’ll take a penthouse in the clouds a better view of how it all connects I’ll rent a kite and float in bliss above the city lights In a daze we board the pod our only hope is playing cards with fate let the bipeds take the hit San will be caught up in a heated debate Then the body starts to rot at a much accelerated pace It’s painful I’ll admit We will be laughing as we make our escape They say the city’s green and bright there’s nonstop entertainment on all decks space enough to truly unwind I’ll take a penthouse in the clouds a better view of how it all connects I’ll rent a kite and float in bliss above the city lights Year after year I’ve been in command a way of life no one understands The gift of sight the power of light I’d throw it away for a head in the sand

Change can be good there’s time to think in the car while we wait the house aside, I’m glad we’re out of the woods Shame about the pool and lessons learned but applied way too late The marble trays are gone and I am the fool Who will I be tomorrow? Here come the Halcyon days Invisible man he still gets paid to wait backstage as the audience screams Has he changed at all Does he still reign supreme Is he still afraid? I park the car, get a room at the Omni to get it off my back Yes I’ll be here for a while call the front desk if you need me I sign my name in the book of the lonely I need a plan of attack Find a point between the eyes the mirror never lies never lies New lease on life the phrase is old but I feel young and lean a coat of paint and off we go in the night Who will I be tomorrow? God moves in mysterious ways Invisible man he still gets paid to wait backstage as the audience screams Has he changed at all Does he still reign supreme Is he still afraid? I park the car, get a room at the Omni to get it off my back Yes I’ll be here for a while call the front desk if you need me I sign my name in the book of the lonely then it’s time for a snack Find a point between the eyes the mirror never lies never lies

Lasertown 03:54
Let’s just agree to disagree Nothing ever ends at the end of the line Dr. 1 said to Dr. 2 who do we know that can do what we do so take this box to sublevel 3 Why don’t you step outside while we still have time Patients come and patients go all you can do is just stick with what you know All across the nation flew numberless flags for me and you red and blue, all ablaze with the passion of our art sell your livestock and purify your black hearts All aboard the great canoe all kinds of people rest renewed dreams aside, water can reveal a kind of truth Let your hair grow and get in line for T group Meanwhile back in Lasertown the diatomic war is coming to an end they’ve burned the shells and they’ve cut the tubes but time is the word and there’s still so much to do Get in line for T group Don’t forget to water the root

Drifter 04:10 video
I drift to see the earth I’m not coming down I’ve found something out of the blue I’m chasing a mood I’m longing to be tuned to the wavelength of tides maybe I had some kind of wife in some other life Drifter in the night As mirror to man earth draws a line in the sand I’m looking at the sun from Lagrange 1 Heaven hold me tight in your arms and make me a star I drift to see the world I’m not coming down I’ve found something out of the blue I’m chasing a truth Drifter in the night As mirror to man earth draws a line in the sand

Night Falls 04:31
Night falls on the terrace tiles A black robe, glass of wine, here’s our idol enshrined Foam can be shaped like animals in a cage true to fantasy The water is clear there’s nothing to fear in here This time she takes it slow she’s got nowhere to be midnight comes and midnight goes Waylaid by the power of dreams the good life took a turn though centered it seemed The streets called her name walk on ‘til you shed your shame and deposit it with me Johnny was fun and he was the only one Beware the henchman’s arms trying to cop a feel and seal your doom with grace and charm She waits for Johnny to return as the wild wind blows every day She will be ready when they call she’s worked it all out with everyone concerned Face marked by the distance it keeps the old look gone to rest like a queen in her sleep Time is a thief whose mission is now complete She’s lived to see it all With nothing to lose she enters the blue caboose in search of pioneers beyond the urban sprawl headed for a new frontier She thinks of Johnny driving south and the cold wellspring of romance A spark within to light the sky as she disappears, relieved without a doubt She thinks of Johnny driving south and the cold wellspring of romance A spark within to light the sky as she disappears behind a wall of clouds

There’s someone at your door who is he has he been here before You can be assured I’m always by your side I’m waiting patiently for a ride Waiting, waiting for a ride My turn has come at last my one chance to make a pass I break through the glass I’ll only be a while I’m dancing quietly with my bride Waiting, waiting for a ride
