Track Name: Welcome to the Modern World
I used to wake up with a smile on my face
Fresh from a dream I was floating in space
And the Earth from above was a beautiful jewel
In the bright golden crown of the Sun, gleaming blue
Now I wake up with no smile just a frown
I’m no longer sleeping it feels like I’m coming down

Everywhere greed and intolerance breed
To the sound of the media drums planting seeds
To grow hatred of somebody you’ll never meet
To raise cash for a war or to hide their deceit
From a gullible public that don’t give a shit
We’ve been taught not to care while they’re making it rich of us all

And welcome to the modern world
Yeah, welcome to the real world
Plug yourself in
Let the destruction begin
C’mon join all the fun

Try not to think of the animals face
Of the pain it went through to end up on your plate
And don’t spare a though for this place you call home
As we tear down the trees strip it back to the bone
As we drown in poisons as fast as we can
So there’s nothing else left but the law of man

And welcome to the modern world
Yeah, welcome to the real world
You won’t need your heart
Leave it right at the start
Or you’ll miss all the fun
Track Name: Losing My Mind
I feel like I know you
I don’t know where from
I’m a stranger in this town
Haven’t been here long

I remember my old town
I remember it well
It was dragging us all down
But I’m alright now

Can you feel it now it’s gone?
And did you feel it all along?
Can you leave it all behind?
Are you running out of time?
Did you see it all along?
Can you see it now it’s gone?
I left it all behind
I was losing my mind…

Guess you’re right I was lucky
Didn’t feel it then
Couldn’t find any answers
I couldn’t help my friends

I couldn’t see clearly
I couldn’t see a thing
I was losing my mind
I was losing my mind

Can you feel it now it’s gone?
And did you feel it all along?
Can you leave it all behind?
Are you running out of time?
Did you see it all along?
Can you see it now it’s gone?
I left it all behind
I was losing my mind…
Track Name: Travelling Through Time
Two legged pests are runnin’ ‘round
Like ants without the purpose
Some of them are shining
But that’s only on the surface

Now I’m looking through a forest of grey concrete
High in the city of smoked glass

I’m travelling through time
And I’ve been here before
I’m travelling through time
What am I here for?

I see the radiation dancing
On the winds of globalisation
Do you really think you’re living
In the land of the free?

Antenna tree tops touch the clouds
Communication all around

I’m travelling through time
And I’ve been here before
I’m travelling through time
What am I here for?
Track Name: Bad Mood Rising
I can’t open my eyes
They’re not for sale anymore
Everywhere I go
Has been branded, that’s for sure
One distraction shoves another out the way
Just to keep us all from thinking
Just to keep us all in line
Just keep wasting our time...

Its the karma of a nation
Wrought for breeding alienation
Now New York looks like Baghdad
But without the history
Ignoring Revelations
Cataclysmic devastation
Now there’s a bad mood rising
It’s a brand new kind of war

They’re selling us
Celluloid dreams, through digital screens
Built an island out of numbers so unreal
And so it slips away
Ignoring the procession
Of precessional precision
That’s been left to us, it’s ours
You can’t keep us all from thinking
You can’t keep us all in line...
Can’t watch us all the time...
You’re just wasting your time...
Track Name: Vision
I had a vision, I had a wake up call
I had a vision, it was something strange

It was a wake up call, a wake up call
Astro eyes predict my fall
Take me into outer space
Down on earth I’m out of place

When I lay awake at night
Wondering how to put things right
To escape from this place, they call me, call me, call me
When I’ve gone you’ll be alright
Let me hold you one more night
Then escape from this place, they call me, call me, call me

I had a vision, I had a wake up call
I had a vision, it was something strange, something small

It was a wake up call, a wake up call
Something else controls us all
Take me into outer space
Down on earth we’re out of place

When I lay awake at night
Wondering how to put things right
To escape from this place, they call me, call me, call me
When I’ve gone you’ll be alright
Let me hold you one more night
Then escape from this place, they call me, call me, call me
And I don’t know when to stop
Pull on the brakes I fall right off
Then escape from this place, they call me, call me, call me

Don’t you wanna wake up, wake up...?
Track Name: Machine
I am a machine, do you know what I mean?
I am a machine, I can’t help myself
You know I am a machine
You know what I mean?
I am a machine, do you know what I mean?
And I am a machine, I can’t help myself
You know I am a machine
Real extreme

See in your eyes that you don’t believe
That we’ve become human machines
I can see you’re not real
Talk about things in a humanoid way
My circuits they feel unclean
Baby don’t you know I am a machine
I can’t help myself, you know I am a machine
I can’t help myself, you know I am a machine
You know what I mean

I am a machine, you know what I mean?
I am a machine, I can’t help myself
You know I am a machine
You know what I mean?

Wake up in the morning and I see a different world
Watching humanoid machines on their way to work
I struggle with that feeling
I feel unclean
Can’t you see the program has failed?
I’m overloaded I’m off the rails
Oh baby don’t you know, I am a machine
I can’t help myself, you know I am a machine
I can’t help myself, you know I am a machine
I am a machine

And I don’t even know what’s going on
I don’t know what to do with myself now
Feeling down, feeling low, plug myself in, recharge, recharge… fail
Work, consume, obey, shutdown…
I am a machine… We’re all machines… Breakdown, breakdown…
Track Name: Standing at the Crossroads
Standing at the crossroads
Feeling sleepy kind of lost now
When I’m lost I fall asleep
So at the crossroads I’m still standing

I force myself to fall so far
That I can’t see how far I’ve fallen
I can’t stop myself by force
And no ones forcing me to stop at all

Smoking starts me thinking
And I’m thinking about smoking
Then my fingers start to roll
Now I’m smoking and I’m thinking

I read the words the prophets’ said
Confused me more the more I read
I need answers for my questions
But the answers make me question even more

I know that something guides me
And it's guiding me to something
I don’t know when I’ll get there
But I’m looking
And I’m listening
And I’m feeling
I’m living more and more…
Track Name: Not Hungry Anymore
I’m not hungry anymore
The world beneath my feet has changed
Contaminated, toxified by pesticides
All things man-made

I’m not hungry anymore
I’m all full up on additives
Who really wants to eat like this?
I’ve seen enough now
I’ve seen enough now

I’m not hungry anymore
I want my food grown under the sun
Not engineered by greedy
Agro-chemical corporations
I’ve seen enough now
I’ve seen enough now…
Track Name: Love Song in Dream Time
You appeared from nowhere
From half a world away
Maybe I got lucky
And all the Gods were smiling my way

And when you’re here beside me
I’m a shooting star
Soaring endlessly
Through eternity
Across the Milky Way
In dream time all the way

My life was tiring
And I was tiring of my life
You steered me back on course
Guided by the heavens, back to the source

And when you’re here beside me
I’m a shooting star
Soaring endlessly
Through eternity
Across the Milky Way
In dream time all the way...
Track Name: Circles
Take me out, take me somewhere
Anywhere but here
You know it’s all too near
I’m tired, my body’s aching
Tired of all my lives
And of pushing it too far, testing it too hard

I never claimed to be an angel
But you knew that all along
You were blind and I was gone
I never said I’d do no wrong
That was clear right at the start
And there’s no one here to blame, there’s no one here to blame

Did we push it just a bit too far?
Did we smash it up like your old car?
We’re lying here in bits
Did we let it come to this?

Have we taken it a step too far?
Did we kick it in the face too hard?
It’s broken up in bits
Can we really hope to fix it at all?

Its gonna be alright
Its gonna be alright
Its gonna be alright
Its gonna be alright…
