Track Name: Digital Signs (Matthars/McKella/Sampson/Thomas)
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
Track Name: Crystalized Moments (McKella)
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
Track Name: Nothing For Tomorrow (McKella)
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

Track Name: Kosmonaut (Thomas)
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

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

Track Name: State of the Nation (McKella)
State of the Nation (3.47)
(McKella)

The situation's hopeless - Can I be so sure
The circumstance is changing - As they lay another law
Complicated strategy - Beyond the status quo
The system starts to fracture - And no-one wants to know

Chorus:

Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The politicians tighten - the people start to bleed
the reason for more chaos - as the leaders start to weed
the people start to run - but there's nowhere left to go
with governments ambiguious - but do they really know

Chorus:

Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Should the time be coming – when the system starts to break
the people start the running – running out the fake
elect a new leader -
now watch your system crack - crack

Chorus:

Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............

Looking for more reason
Reason to suspect
Suspecting all your reasons
I'll have to re-inspect
it's the state of the nation
Outa control
State of the nation
Hitting an all time low.............
Track Name: Points of View (McKella/Matthars/Sampson/Thomas/Teers)
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

Track Name: Is This The Time (McKella/Sampson)
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

Track Name: Anyhow Anyway (McKella)
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
Track Name: Distant Dreams (McKella/Matthars/Sampson/Thomas)
Distant Dreams (6.51)
(McKella/Matthars/Sampson/Thomas)

And as you sit and wonder how
As you see this – here and now
You wonder how we’ll all get through
& In these days - of distant dreams
So far away now- that it seems
A place where we all want to stay

Chorus:

We carry dreams that must get through
Of a better place – for me and you
A place where children want to play
A place that’s better than today

Each and everyone of us
Is this the time - that we must suss
And try to work out what it means
We are the children – of the sun
Now is the time that we should learn
A way to re-connect our dreams

Chorus:

We carry dreams that must get through
Of a better place – for me and you
A place where children want to play
A place that’s better than today
We carry dreams that must get through
Of a better place – for me and you
A place where children want to play
A place that’s better than today
Track Name: Take Me To The Future (McKella/Matthars/Sampson/Thomas/Windmill)
Take Me To The Future (12.26)
(McKella/Matthars/Sampson/Thomas/Windmill)

I want to see the future - I want to see the stars
I want to see the cities - on a colonized Mars
I want to see salvation – a place for us to know
Where man looks to the heavens - a place for us to go
a place for us to go
a place for us to go
a place for us to go
a place for us to go
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I want to see the wonders – of the Galaxy
I want to see all of the – new technologies
I want to see the future - send me out to space
I want to see the stepping stones – of the human race
of the human race
of the human race
of the human race
of the human race
take me to the future (now) x8
send me
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Take me to the future - Take me to the stars
I want to see the rivers - on a terraformed Mars
I want to see salvation – a place for us to know
where man looks to the heavens - a place for us to go
a place for us to go
a place for us to go
a place for us to go
a place for us to go --------------------------------------------------------------

Take me to the edges – of the Universe
I want to see the colonies – away from Planet Earth
Send me to the future - send me out to space (an oracle in space)
a cosmic resolution – that might save the human race
that might save the human race that might save the human race that might save the human race that might save the human race
take me to the future (now)
send me
