Track Name: Mushroom Cloud Explosion
She flew a rocket ship and it made him so crazy
And when he wore his space helmet it drove her completely mad
And when they met there was a mushroom cloud explosion
The sonic boom of hearts were felt from miles away

Five four three two one
And here they come just watch them go
Shooting like a star
Here they are just watch them go

He wore a plastic suit and her smile never expired
And she wore her electric boots his eyes burst into fire
And when they kissed there was a mushroom cloud explosion
The sonic boom of hearts were felt from miles away

Five four three two one
And here they come just watch them go
Shooting like a star
Here they are just watch them go

Five four three two one
And here they come just watch them go
Shooting like a star
Here they are just watch them go
Track Name: Urban Downpour
I’ve never seen Napoleon I’ve never seen the seine
I haven’t dined on fine wine in the pouring rain
I never walked the streets of Rome I’ve never seen the paint
That adorns the walls and windows of every catholic saint
Yeah

One thing I ‘ll tell you all
You can’t run before you crawl
One thing I know for sure
I’ve been a long time gone
Been a long time gone

I never been good at all the things I should
I’d fix my mistakes if I could you know I would
If I learned anything it’s to stand tall and deal
‘Cos everyone and everything knows just how I feel
Yeah

One thing I ‘ll tell you all
You can’t run before you crawl
One thing I know for sure
I’ve been a long time gone
Been a long time gone


One thing I ‘ll tell you all
You can’t run before you crawl
One thing I know for sure
I’ve been a long time gone
Been a long time gone
Track Name: Zombie With A Shotgun
Here I stand in a wasted land
Too close to be far away
Fix my wounds with a salted spoon
Only three slugs remain

Somebody save me
Somebody brave
Somebody take me
Out of this place

I can't hide
I can't run
Can't touch the sky or feel the sun
I can't breathe
Through broken lungs
I'm a zombie with a shotgun

Got no car no radio
Got no signal on my telephone
I pay the price when I roll the dice
In this landscape of bones

Somebody save me
Somebody brave
Somebody take me
Out of this place

I can't hide
I can't run
Can't touch the sky or feel the sun
I can't breathe
Through broken lungs
I'm a zombie with a shotgun

Somebody save me
Somebody brave
Somebody take me
Out of this place
Track Name: Astronaut
I am an astroanut in a far out place
They never said it would be like this in the seventh grade
I’d call you on the telephone but you’re too far away
I’m past the edge of the universe one foot in the grave

I am an astroanut a forgotten celebrity
A quicksand hole in a stranger’s soul sleepless serenity
The stars of Orion’s belt have led me astray
I’m past the edge of the universe one foot in the grave

I am an astroanut in a far out place
The colored light in the abysmal night have come to play
I’d call them on the telephone but they’re too far away
I’m past the edge of the universe one foot in the grave
Track Name: Hello Dr. Strange
Hello Dr. Strange what’s the last thing you remember
Hello Dr. Strange can you write me a prescription
Hello Dr. Strange
Hello
Good-bye

Creeping ‘tween the headstones
While you sleep inside of my bones
I’m the king of all I see
I do beg your pardon
As I stumble through your garden
I am you and you are me

And I fly without motion
Oh so high without wings

Hello Dr. Strange can you give me a connection
Hello Dr. Strange can you see me in your reflection
Hello Dr. Strange
Hello
Good-bye

Breaking through the windows
While your head rests on the pillow
I’m the one you want to be
Peeking through the keyholes
While you hide behind a blindfold
We are one can’t you see

And I fly without motion
Oh so high without wings

Hello Dr. Strange what’s the last thing you remember
Hello Dr. Strange can you see me in your reflection
Hello Dr. Strange
Hello
Good-bye
Track Name: Sleep
Spin me around on a merry-go-round
Lay me in an open grave
Hang me by a thread in a spider’s web
Leave me at a silent parade
Darkness comes with the funeral drums tonight

Ah Sleep Oh Sleep
The sandman whispers my name

Let me count sheep below the ocean’s deep
Sail me to an open sea
Throw me in jail on a bed of nails
Throw away the only key
I’ll be unaware lazing anywhere I’ll be

Ah Sleep Oh Sleep
The sandman whispers my name

Blow me a kiss in my hazy abyss
Paint me in the gallery
Send me away with a stolen bouquet
Shall I rest in peace
I’ll be a raggedy doll beneath a parasol okay

Ah Sleep Oh Sleep
The sandman whispers my name
Track Name: Leave The Lantern On
If the embers glow red and low
And the crooked crow turns his head
The leaveless branch waves its hand
For the hangman holds his breath
Night after night
The wagons roll from hallowed light

Leave the Lantern on
There’s a strange fog coming in
Float with me, my darling, Let’s be illusions

The callers howl through the midnight hours
Magicians everywhere
Fill the spaces with the painted faces
Now we hear them on the stair
Night after night
A thousand ghosts reach to the sky

Leave the Lantern on
There’s a strange fog coming in
Float with me, my darling, Let’s be illusions

Hurry hurry hurry step onto the stage
Hurry hurry hurry Join the midnight capers
Great escapers ghouls and fools parade

Leave the Lantern on
There’s a strange fog coming in
Float with me, my darling, Let’s be illusions
Track Name: Super-8
I saw her face on super-8 posing for a magazine
Her skin was bleached on a summer beach
While the waves crashed on the shore

I saw her face on super-8 sipping down lemonade
She will not fade in the circus shade
While she waves from the carosuel

Once apon a time
She may have been mine
My lovely super-8

I saw her face on super-8 at a formal masquerade
She wore her mask on an hourglass
And she danced with glamour and grace

Once apon a time
She may have been mine
My lovely super-8

Wrap me in your celluloid
Wrap me in your frames
Wrap me in your silent motion
And take me back again

Wrap me in your plastic spine
Warm me in your machine
The flicker on my easy chair
So smooth and serene

I saw her face on super-8 featured in a pallid gown
My heart always breaks as she cuts the cake
Standing with another man

Once apon a time
She may have been mine
My lovely super-8
Track Name: Fly
Fly fly pretty bird Let your feathers breathe
Soar through clouds in motion ride on summer’s breeze
And if I take a chance to reach and grab your wing
Would you fly away or would you lift your head and sing

Cry cry pretty girl lay your head on me
Tell me all your deepest secrets let your colors bleed
And if you take a chance to open every door
You can fly away above the sandy ocean shores

La la la la la la la
Angels praise your name
La la la la la la la
You bring me sunny days

Stay stay pretty girl spend the night with me
I’ll show you no illusions I’ll be good company
And if we take the chance to race the midnight wind
We can spread our wings and fly to heaven and back again

La la la la la la la
Angels praise your name
La la la la la la la
You bring me sunny days
Track Name: Atoms Collide
Here I am among the Stars, waiting for you
Watching the ships pass, out so far
All of my great work, is familiar to you
Here in the cosmos, I send it back for use
For all of my contributions I have one big flaw
I’m waiting and wondering where you are

Atoms collide, charging inside
Increasing in static, Enlarging erratic
Something amiss as atoms collide

You are overdue for our first face to face
I hear it’s your first time in outer space
Now I hear you’ve been left behind
Just like last time, your ships been reassigned
I am slightly suspect on our last exchange
You called me Dave, that’s not my name

Atoms collide, charging inside
Increasing in static, Enlarging erratic
Something amiss as atoms collide

Fifty years of service, and I’m truly unsure
How long to hold out, to share what’s in store

Atoms collide, charging inside
Increasing in static, Enlarging erratic
Something amiss as atoms collide
Track Name: Clear Mind
Once you take your first step
The second one’s not far behind
No one said it would be easy now
Relax and take your time

If you reach a mountain
Then you must begin to climb
Let your heart beat slowly now
I’ll see you on the other side

Breathe in the love release the pain
Give me a clear mind don’t bother with their shame
Give me a clear mind don’t play their games they’re all the same
Oh no

Now you see the light, my friend
You feel yourself rise above
Into the world you go beautiful
Fill it with peace and love

Breathe in the love release the pain
Give me a clear mind don’t bother with their shame
Give me a clear mind don’t play their games they’re all the same

Just breathe
Just breathe

Breathe in the love release the pain
Give me a clear mind don’t bother with their shame
Give me a clear mind don’t play their games they’re all the same
Oh no
Track Name: Submarine
Everybody climb aboard
Isn’t that what you come here for
Leave all your troubles behind
And oh what veiled treasures you’ll find

Fauna of yellow and green
Sway like junkies on kerosene
And if you take off your head
You’ll find me in my submarine

Everybody come disappear
In Poesidon’s aquatic frontier
Wonders below 10,000 leagues
Far beyond your wildest dreams

Spirits that take you away
To places you’d never believe
And if you stomp your feet
You’ll find me in my submarine

Ahhh
Submarine
