Track Name: Nevada
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
Track Name: Rome Before The War
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
Track Name: Queen Alice
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
Track Name: Raindance
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Pale Driver
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!"
Track Name: In My Town
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
Track Name: Starchild
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
Track Name: (A Prospect From) Hope Street
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
Track Name: Full Fathom Five
(Instrumental)
