Digital Signs (3.58) (Matthars/McKella/Sampson/Thomas) 1/ I see the signs – that are telling me I see the messages informing me I hear the distant shouts - of what it's all about - on how they're taking liberties. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Chorus: & all that stuff that never hits the news - & all of those missing points of views & all that stuff I know I heard you say - & with everything that is happening today so we're going on-line - yeah we're going on-line making digital noises – digital signs – we're making digital noises – digital signs ------------------------------------------------------------------ 2/ And as I cruise along the information highway I wonder just how far back they are behind me I'm clearing out my trash - I'm clearing out my cache - I'm clearing everything on you & me. Chorus: & all that stuff that never hits the news - & all of those missing points of views & all that stuff I know I heard you say - & with everything that is happening today so we're going on-line - yeah we're going on-line making digital noises – digital signs – we're making digital noises – digital signs ------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3/ & as the information starts to flow & as the digital voices start to grow is this the new gateway – an exit from today – a tool to save our stolen liberties Chorus: & all that stuff that never hits the news - & all of those missing points of views & all that stuff I know I heard you say - & with everything that is happening today so we're going on-line - yeah we're going on-line making digital noises – digital signs – we're making digital noises – digital signs

Crystalized Moments (5.11) (McKella) And we’d talk of our dreams Of the places we seen – In the twilight sun And we look at the trees As they swing to the breeze - In the twilight sun Chorus: These are the times - that I finally see it those times - that I spent – with you- These are the moments - especially held it's those crystalized moments – with you you – you - you – you ----------------------------------------------------------------- And we’d walk through the park Making out in the dark – In this moonlit sky And we’d look at the signs in the stars as they shine – In this moonlit sky Chorus: These are the times - that I finally see it those times - that I spent – with you- These are the moments - especially held it's those crystalized moments – with you you – you - you – you

Nothing For Tomorrow (4.51) (McKella) I see man-made clouds – forming in the sky I see a plane fly thru those clouds & fly on by Poison ivy poison trees – acid rain & dying seas Polar ice-caps melt into those seas Chorus: Take it all - take it now Take it all - Leave nothing for tomorrow ---------------------------------------------------------------------- I see images - of South America big corporations move in from afar And when the forests are stripped bare – another space created there Fabrics of Mother Earth – lay threadbare Chorus: Take it all - take it now Take it all - Leave nothing for tomorrow Leave nothing for tomorrow Leave nothing for tomorrow Leave nothing for tomorrow ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Take all the resources – from the ground And once they've gone see what is left around And when the storm – breaks out it's cage You feel its' force – you feel its' rage you see the destruction – lie all around Chorus: Take it all - take it now Take it all - Leave nothing for tomorrow Leave nothing for tomorrow Leave nothing for tomorrow Leave nothing for tomorrow ---------------------------------------------------------------------- What would your grandchildren ever think What would your grandchildren ever think What would your grandchildren ever think What would your grandchildren ever think

Kosmonaut (6.36) (Thomas) Up above this ancient ground High above this hallowed Earth Where above the stratosphere I can see the Earth so clear I don’t wanna be no Matisse clone Or wind up trying in a nuclear zone Gonna make that one big trip Paint the Galaxy & watch it drip Chorus: I wanna be a kosmonaut – Getting high on the power of thought I wanna be a kosmonaut – Kosmik Kosmo Kosmonaut Perestroika strike sgain What you got to entertainment Blast off Glasnost You know we’re looking for a new sensation You know we’re looking for a new temptation Armenia ain’t much good for rave Rasputin in a watery grave Let me on a Western trip TDA in your sputnik Chorus: I wanna be a kosmonaut – Getting high on the power of thought I wanna be a kosmonaut – Kosmik Kosmo Kosmonaut I wanna be a kosmonaut – Getting high on the power of thought I wanna be a kosmonaut – Kosmik Kosmo Kosmonaut ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Yuri Yuri Gagarin - Yuri Yuri Gagarin Yuri Yuri Gagarin - Yuri Yuri Gagarin Doshra dandanicht (The last flight will be leaving at 10.33) Last flight - tonight Last flight - get on board Last flight - tonight Last flight - we're moving on I wanna be a kosmonaut – Getting high on the power of thought I wanna be a kosmonaut – Kosmik Kosmo Kosmonaut I wanna be a kosmonaut – Getting high on the power of thought I wanna be a kosmonaut – Kosmik Kosmo Kosmonaut ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Life's not well and life's too short Doshra dandanicht Arms still growing Fingers still growing My mind's still growing Doshra dandanicht

Points of View (11.12) (McKella/Matthars/Sampson/Thomas/Teers) I saw the news the other day It told me of the way that things were going I heard a politician say That things were alright – things were ok I try and read between the lines Try and see what's there behind But every time I try and find running into blanks – time and time again Chorus: I try and see another point of view After all the things I saw you do I try and see another point of view I was trying to keep an open eye on you you you you you you you you ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- I try and find another way Trying to find some information I'm watching politics in play Trying to find some def-in-ition and the more I try and find Watching doors closing – one by one And it's always against time Facts are hidden and the evidence is stolen Chorus: I try and see another point of view After all the things I saw you do I try and see another point of view I was trying to keep an open eye on you I try and see another point After all the things I saw you do I try and see another point of view I was trying to keep an open eye on you you you you ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is This The Time (2.58) (McKella/Sampson) I see you - Over there Looking onward – inward stare You look so lost – with-out direction Aimlessly – with no connection Did you see – the complexity \The confusion – the obsurdity You're trying to find – some piece of mind Away from all (of the) – obscurities (insecurity) Is this the time – you make you move Forward motion – break out that groove You're trying to find – a new direction Trying to find – a destination Is This The Time Is This The Time Is This The Time Is This The Time

Anyhow Anyway (4.37) (McKella) I feel the dark winter night – bearing down on me I see a neon light – flashing for all to see I make my way – pacing anxiety Looking at people – in this strange city Chorus: And in the end you got the message to me – you know we can be And I know I'll get it back to you – you know we can do And I know you know it's all the same – and does it ever change And I know we gonna push this on thru – you know we can do Anyhow – anyway ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And now the weather's turned cold – you glisten in the rain I see you check your image – in a shop window pane You know there must be shelter – I got to get far from here To bury those emotions – bury those fears Chorus: And in the end you got the message to me – you know we can be And I know I'll get it back to you – you know we can do And I know you know it's all the same – and does it ever change And I know we gonna push this on thru – you know we can do Anyhow – anyway ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And in walking this life – walking these legacy We're looking for shelter – we're looking for sanctuary Get the feeling right – I hope this weather's going to change Can you see that light – hope it's in range Chorus: And in the end you got the message to me – you know we can be And I know I'll get it back to you – you know we can do And I know you know it's all the same – and does it ever change And I know we gonna push this on thru – you know we can do Anyhow – anyway
