Nevada 06:16
The night is falling Distance is calling The air is cooling, the wind is mild Those wasteland heroes Have crumbled to zeroes And yet they’ll come up with a smile But the sound of the ocean Has filled my lonely soul up with true devotion Even though their flight is Poetry In Motion Still their rise is the onslaught of Death Taking my time till the Sands Of Time have blown away Watching the tides and the years roll by Telling my tale till the lights are down and Night is Day Up in Nevada it will lie The day is fading Nighttime is breaking The stars are wandering and Time stands still Like an old man bleeding The waves are receding The earth is crumbling against the chill But the sound of the ocean Has filled my lonely soul up with true devotion Even though their flight is Poetry In Motion Still their rise is the onslaught of Death Taking my time till the Sands Of Time have blown away Watching the tides and the years roll by Telling my tale till the lights are down and Night is Day Up in Nevada it will lie

The well's run dry, the rags are torn I went to war on a Sunday morning The bullets fly beyond command Casualties notwithstanding This whole affair became the biggest mess of all, see them fall (Sevastopol, see your good men fall) Say Goodbye to Mrs. Pain She is driving you insane Till those violets turn to firemen And say Hello to Mr. Cheers He will smile away your tears That would burn like acid fountains That Tokyo life just passed us by Kaito's parts were most exciting He's gone to see the big masai To meet his look that's more than frightening Ring the bells of Old Calliope We believe in what we see (We only see in what we can believe) The night has turned again to day It has long been gone away And left us all here in the waiting The day has led us into night Mr. Truman was not right To put us all into the fading Can I carry on I am not so strong Their weight is pulling me so lightly Coming down And I am drowned Science has fallen from disgrace How could they go to leave us facing A life that’s compartmentalized With urgent dreams that have us rising Twenty thousand miles below the sea We repeat our plea endlessly Say Goodbye to Mrs. Pain She is driving you insane Till those violets turn to firemen And say Hello to Mr. Cheers He will smile away your tears That would flow like acid fountains

Queen Alice 05:53
This is not a wonderland adventure This is not quite what it seems The Queen and the Kitten Where do they both fit in When nothing is real in your dreams? There’s a long black hole to your garden Where the snake plays a trick on the eye Is it five nights till Tuesday From Wednesday or Saturday? Is the Mock Turtle telling you lies? Come to me, Alice Come out of your shell Hold on and don’t be afraid Talk to me, queenie Talk out to the streets Way through your terminal state There’s a time for those who’ll be born again And a time for those who must die Is it strict 9/11 or 24:7 When the evil come up for their trial? There’s a season for those who might think about Falling off the top of the house How the lion and the unicorn Would shine in their uniforms Now you ain’t seen nothing so vile Come to me, Alice Come out of your shell Hold on and don’t be afraid Talk to me, queenie Talk out to the streets Way through your terminal state And the Queen took the veil of salvation From these white eyes of wonder To let them meet with the dark side of growing Come to me with your darkest fears Before they have you all for themselves Come to me with your darkest fears Before they have you hide them and fight them all by yourself

Pale Driver 04:59
He travelled faster then the speed of light He was a driver for The Wheel With seven senses locked in overdrive He held in vain The Eyes Of Steel All in all it's just another case of another lost in the race Here come The Pale Driver Get on, set the pace within the human race Here come The Pale Driver As if his skin was made of cellophane His throbbing veins are shining through With piercing action of The Fevered Brain His manic dreams are coming true All in all it's just another case of another lost in the race Here come The Pale Driver Get on, set the pace within the human race Here come The Pale Driver Here I've come to a pretty pass Hang on while I step on the gas I've got 24 Hours, The Risk but no choice All I hear's just a deadening voice: "Hey Driver, go to channel four, what's wrong - we can't hear you no more!"

In My Town 06:16
The streets lie naked in the sun The hours are grinding over cobble-stones And though the day has just begun I am almost worn out to the bone I strain my ears to hear a sound I could be walking underground But then I feel This place seems so unreal Life goes on in my town The sun goes down on my town The children laugh and play And almost like dream they fade away The years have passed without a trace And left no lines upon our fading prime ‘Cos when I like into your face It feels as though I’m drifting out of time I raise my eyes, my head stays bowed The silver lining’s tinged with clouds They fly unchained Through a world outside the rain Life goes on in my town The sun goes down on my town The children laugh and play And as their laughter fades away When can dream ourselves from here Until we both have disappeared The children laugh and play And almost like dream they fade away

Starchild 06:04
Just blew up one of your satellites Could not believe my eyes I never thought that one could waste one's time on such an incredible junk Yes, it's almost a crime But I can hardly blame you for this ‘Cos I know, I know that the Heavenly Bliss Is nothing worthwhile to be dreamed of I was caught in a circle in a relative way Though it may sound absurd - I have aged not a day And generations passed me by Like a starlit starchild Shining on from the heavens above Like a starlit starchild Shining on with the sons of our love But to you I’ve always been true But then, more and more, there’s a feeling like paradise And those silly slabs don’t mean a thing at all And now I’m biding my time in the ejector seat Waiting for a chance To come out of this shattering void that I’m in To be somebody real again To pass the time of day with myself won’t suffice One day I’m gonna crack with myself And come down as one still believing I’ve been through the encounter of the ultimate kind Some more light years to go and I’ll catch from behind With generations gliding by Like a starlit starchild Shining on from the heavens above Like a starlit starchild Shining on with the sons of our love But to you I’ve always been true But then, more and more, there’s a feeling like paradise And those silly slabs don’t mean a thing at all They’re just spectres on the wall

I catch the days, tear the years to shreds And drag myself through unmade beds From a sleepless ride on a sleeper-train To the never-ending English Rain Distance falls, horizons stay As the evening tide comes to break the day Time weighs hard upon this land And it winds me up like a second hand Here on the doorstep, with no window to the world A handful of gravel and a mouthful of royal pearls Well, I begin to feel as you get trampled down by our tourist-feet The Northern Rain is coming down like a blinding sheet But the prospect from Hope Street Is still there for the eye to meet The Prospect from Hope Street Is still there for the eye to meet I spiral down with the river bends As the sun comes out like a long-lost friend I am homeward bound on this train again But I will soon be returning as sure as the rain As sure as the rain Here on the doorstep, with no window to the world A handful of gravel and a mouthful of royal pearls Well, I begin to feel as you get trampled down by our tourist-feet The Northern Rain is coming down like a blinding sheet But the prospect from Hope Street Is still there for the eye to meet The Prospect from Hope Street Is still there for the eye to meet
