Track Name: Eclipse
Where we going from here
Well I don't know
It seems we fell down the stairs
We're now below
And do you think that she'll call
My heart says no
Another bridge that has burned
We can't get home
Where we going from here
It brings me down
Where we going from here
The queen's skipped town
Prima Donna in flares
So strong, right on
Ego bigger than fair
Eclipsed the sun

It won't fly the wings are wet with rain
It won't fly and I'm the one to blame

How did I come to be here
This suit is wrong
These aren't my dreams or my fears
I don't belong
Suddenly she appears
But then she's gone
Celestial dollars and tears
We're all alone

It won't fly the wings are wet with rain
It won't fly and I'm the one to blame (Do you understand)
Track Name: Generation
Everybody meet in the field at the top of the hill
No need to bring your guns
Though we've got some time to kill
This place is to the point when we need to have a little talk
Leave your shiny cars at home
Don't you think it's time we learned to walk
And learned to talk

Everybody meet to give praise to the sky and the sea
No need to bring your coins
We'll do it all for free
Who made the awful rule to make the grade just make the green
Burn down the shopping malls
Don't you think it's time we learned to walk
And learned to talk

Let's start over
This world is over
Let's start over
This world is gone

Everybody meet in the field at the top of the hill
We'll talk of cyber, x, commercial overkill
Pre-packaged generation in a colored cardboard box
Destroy the TV screen
Don't you think it's time we learned to walk
And learned to talk

Let's start over
This world is over
Let's start over
This world is gone
Track Name: World Is Ours
Let me be the one
Let me find an answer
Let me kiss the sun
Happy ever after
Something that once saved me
Is just about to break me

So climb the stairs with me
The air will be much clearer
We'll stand above the trees
The sun and truth much nearer
Some things deep inside us
We need to teach to fly

And so we'll get up on the rooftop
And scream out our desires
They can keep their heaven
I'll stay down near the fire
We'll get up on the rooftop
And scream out our desires
The world is ours

Let me be the one
Let me find an answer
Let me kiss the sun
Happy ever after
Something that once found me
Is moving in around me

And so we'll get up on the rooftop
And scream out our desires
They can keep their heaven
I'll stay down near the fire
We'll get up on the rooftop
And scream out our desires
The world is ours
Track Name: Mars
Life has taken it's turn
She could love me this way until I cry
She's lifting me up from the depths of my mind
Reigning above all royals unkind
Red planet's alone, abandoned in prime
Please won't you sell me

We're moving around but we're going nowhere

Life is not only ours
See her shoot across the sky with a smile
She's holding the clay that's come here from mars
Sustaining the cells that colonize stars
But where will we be when gravity dies
Please wont you tell me

We're moving around but we're going nowhere

We're falling in love
Track Name: Radiolaria
Everybody's afraid of scientists...
Track Name: She's So Gone
With a bottle of wine and two friends of mine
We could head to the hills
There's no need for those pills
Under fractal trees and a fractal sky we are everything
All she needed was, was a push from us
Now she's learning to fly

She's so gone but so am I
Both of us been learning to fly
She's so gone she'll touch the sky
And now I don't know what I'm feeling
Can't remember feeling this high

We're not in a black room, she's still seeing the truth
Could the teacher be wrong?
Could the teacher be gone?
So take a bite from the bag
Make the aliens glad their not wasting their time
As we ride on the swing, hear the fire bells ring
'Cause the Bantam won't fly

She's so gone but so am I
Both of us been learning to fly
She's so gone she'll touch the sky
And now I don't know what I'm feeling
Can't remember feeling this high

There's a dog by the tree and he's spying on me
All the neighbors agree, "Don't be talking to me"
Cause under fractal trees and a fractal sky we are everything
Track Name: Real?
Don't you know it's just my luck
Seretonin's all dried up
And I can't afford the cure
Pop the capsule, right the wrongs
Analogue, she won't be long
I can ride along blue green tonight
But I don't know
Why I don't know

The older I get the less I feel
I Don't know what I want
I Don't know what is real

Don't you know it's all a joke
Sell the band to sell the Coke®
Sell your life and move away
Is this real or just machine
Are those eyes or only screens
Does it matter what you see tonight
Oh I don't know
Why I don't know

The older I get the less I feel
I Don't know what I want
I Don't know what is real

Don't you know it's just a pose
Did you hear that heaven's closed
To re-model and upgrade
When they come oh don't you know
I will be the first to go
Sit with me we'll watch the skies tonight
Oh I don't know
Why I don't know

The older I get the less I feel
I Don't know what I want
I Don't know what is real
Track Name: Leaded
How long will you run away
From the words that you need to say
It's getting so much further everyday
You're swimming upstream the rivers of lead
Picking at wounds where the poison bled
But how much further will you go

'Cause you're tongue tied and you're soul cries on the inside
How far will you go

Been living a lie with your Hollywood life
To take your disease to the highest high
But how much further can you go
You're caught in the path of industrial wheels
The crush of the joke, yeah I know how it feels
I think it's best to let it go

Cause you're tongue tied and you're soul cries on the inside
How far will you go
Track Name: Overdose
Tonight the moon is falling from the sky
Like superstars denied another try
Only you can seem to tell me why
Don't cry
Tonight I'd like to drink myself to sleep
Or lay beneath Kenievel's final leap
Sometimes the hole I'm in just seems so deep
Don't cry you say

Don't you go
Won't you stay
I feel cerebral meltdowns on the way
God may come
But God don't stay
Take away these walls around me
Take away my head
Cause it's crashing in on me, Oh no

I know the high precedes the awful low
I know the yes sometimes becomes a no
I know you need the blue before the gold
Don't cry you say
I could overdose on you tonight
We'll walk the streets until it's light
I could overdose on you tonight
You could be my fix for tonight

Don't you go
Won't you stay
I feel cerebral meltdowns on the way
God may come
But God don't stay
Take away these walls around me
Take away my head
Cause it's crashing in on me, Oh no
