Track Name: Hey Little Earthgirl
Hey Little Earthgirl
I think you're fantastic
Baby pneumatic
Intergalactic
Hey Little Earthgirl
Electronic
Where I'm taking you it's supersonic
I've been searching your solar system
My sun went nova
it was just like this one
Hey Little Earthgirl
I need an earthgirl now

Hey Little Earthgirl
I love your planet
And all its creatures
And the seas that span it
Hey Little Earthgirl
Let's swim your oceans
Infinite water
Endless motion
I'm going to climb your perfect mountains
Drink the nectars from your fountains
Hey Little Earthgirl
I need an earthgirl now

(instrumental break)

Hey Little Earthgirl
I love your planet
And all its creatures
And the seas that span it
Hey Little Earthgirl
Let's swim your oceans
Infinite water
Endless motion
I know you could be so very very naughty
I'm gonna stake a claim on your heavenly body
Little Earthgirl
I need an earthgirl now
Track Name: Oldman Coldman
Old man, cold man
Last unforetold man
New man, blue man
Our favorite tried and true man
Apeman, jape man
Always changing shape man
Why have you come?
Why have you come?

Free man, glee man
Body-building he-man
Frog man, bog man
Sitting on a log man
Starman, bar man
Blew his mind out in a car man
Why have you come?
Why have you come?

Bridge:

Ride ride love
Ride ride love
Inside love
Bye bye love

I blinked - all the stars were spinning
I blinked - the winds blew cold
I blinked - we thought we were winning
I blinked - my sons grew old

(instrumental break)

Late man, great man
Interstellar fate man
Gunman, sun man
Our troubles are undone man
Egg man, peg man
Dancing on one leg man
Now they have come
Now they have come
Now they have come
Track Name: 3 Seconds Before Maia Smiled
Standing in the sun I saw her
shiny shiny girl like water
something in her glance ooh baby
tells me what she wants no maybes

I'll take you make you hum you come you start you stop you love you top you
bring you all the light that I control

Ribbons on her wrist so jaded
We tremble as we twist so naked
The pink glow on her cheeks so pretty
Surrender to my touch no pity
One swirling surging crashing tide
Foam blowing
How pretty when you come, like clockwork
All knowing

I'll take you make you hum you come you start you stop you love you top you
bring you all the light that I control

Now follow me to the endless sea
Lay beside me now
Lay beside me now
three seconds before maia smiled

How I love your eyes so blameless
The prison of your skies so nameless
Like a pilgrim in the dust I drink
At your altar
My shiny shiny girl my water
Upon the path we've sought so long
Saints and sinners pray to belong
and in this song you shimmer

I'll take you make you hum you come you start you stop you love you top you
bring you all the light that I control
Track Name: Take Me Down
And I know if you go
it will be the end of me
Won't you stay another day
Another day won't find us waiting

Take me down
take me down
take me down below

A cloudy sky
I know why
things have changed
and got so strange
It's this heart
this stupid heart
my useless heart
you've been breaking

Take me down
take me down
take me down below

Satin lace your shining face your stockings and you shoes
Smoke and light and heat and dust the pretty things we used
Making love all day upon this sacred afternoon
And I know
this was no dream
I know it was exactly
as it seemed
Baby When you came
Honey when you came
Darling when you came to me

It begins at the skin
We go deep
The timeless keep
The starlight fades
a promise made
The promise made
but I'm still waiting

Take me down
take me down
take me down below

Take me down
take me down
take me down again
Track Name: Bordertown
Time had stopped when I pulled in here
Strange town full of ghosts
People I hated and people I feared
And people I loved I miss the most
Dark came down as I hit the ground
I was back in the bordertown
Spinning fading in the dimming time
All my loves and all my crimes

Chorus:
I've been drinking sweet sweet brandy
Laughter crashing
The darkness calls
Take me over the smooth dark waters
Take me darling
Before I fall

Heatwave glow in the timeless sun
This strange air rippling light
I can't go back what's done is done
Gotta make the other side tonight
Flow these tears on the veiled years
But I don't need your second sight
For memory burns and run I must
To a glass of fog and a shot of dust

(chorus)

Warm swarm ocean blue
Everything is lost
You found somebody new
Sun fade I loved you
Broken window, the ghost-eye stare
Laughing at the loser, the only one who cared
A hurt so great, he didn't want to hate
Drank like crazy just to elevate
His heart past the plane of unbearable fate.

(Chorus twice)
Second time:

I've been dreaming I've been drinking
I've been laughing
The midnight calls
And I have heard the angels weeping
And I still
Must have it all
Track Name: Stay
When I was little
I dreamed of you
In the pink pink clouds
And the towers of blue
Now stay
Stay
Stay baby stay
Stay
Stay
Stay
Track Name: Pop Down The Years
So they told the tale of the golden sun
And the shining girl who lived within
So pretty
I'll go now
I know now
Just where to find her
So the story goes we wore the clothes
To make it seem all possible
The hope it was
All gone now
So long now
But not forgotten

Chorus:
We tried so hard to make it come true
A perfect dream, sun bouncing, sky blue
Pop down the years, still shining on you
Translucent songs that made the world new

Those summer days, your sweet perfume
Just filled the air with magic
A symphony
So bright now
All light now
They watched us dancing.
A slip of time, a ray of sun
A floating song of a perfect world
And endless love
How softly
How sadly
Young hearts were broken

We tried so hard to make it come true
A perfect dream, sun bouncing, sky blue
Pop down the years, still shining on you
Translucent songs that made our love new
