I arrive at the asylum, a makeshift funny farm An old abandoned castle where Section 8’s can do no harm I’ve been sent here on assignment, the new doctor in charge! To analyze the patients; to see who’s real and who’s a fraud (Then there’s you) the paparazzi’s favorite, (Captain) the schizo-astronaut (One day) you lost your marbles in the capsule, right before it was ready for lift off O, Captain, why are you afraid of the moon? Tell me your secret; I’ll share mine with you Why did you refuse? Le Voyage dans la Lune You broke out of the castle; got lost into the night You found a little biker-bar where you thought that you could hide The King of The Angels recognized the superstar The Demons and The Horsemen broke you like some cheap guitar (Then there’s you) they called me to come save you, (Captain) my battered astronaut (One day) Twinkle, twinkle Killer Kane came out; killed every biker on the lot O, Captain, why are you afraid of the moon? Tell me your secret; I’ll share mine with you Why did you refuse? Le Voyage dans la Lune …dans la Lune, dans la Lune (Then there’s you) you will find your marbles (Captain); get permission to take off (One day) your status reinstated to ride on that Galactic-Molotov Now, give me your Saint’s Medallion and just a little time I will prove to you and the whole world there is pure-self-sacrifice O, Captain, why are you afraid of the moon? Now, tell me your secret, I’ve shared mine with you O, Captain, My Captain, please tell me the truth What kind of spaceman is afraid of the Moon? Why did you refuse? It’s only the Moon! Why did you refuse? Le Voyage dans la Lune …dans la Lune

Lift up the blinds; look out (the window) I don’t believe my eyes (no, I don’t) There’s a hole in the sky the size (of Ohio) O …hi …o All the stars have aligned (placed just so) The Mothership could arrive (through a black hole) It came from the other side (of the cosmos) the …cos …mos Yes, I I have this dream sometimes The Mothership takes my damaged girl to another world I watch her fly into the ocean of lights The sky is filled with a million pearls Above this broken world I woke-up surprised to find (I was alone) Ran into a furious night (full of ghosts) In the tempestuous sky (a cyclone) a …cy …clone Yeah, there’s a hole in the sky the size (of Chicago) You left all that loved you behind (and went solo) Wherever you’ve gone, you will find (there you are, Love) Yeah, there you are Yes, I I have this dream sometimes The Mothership takes my damaged girl to another world I watch her fly into the ocean of lights The sky is filled with a million pearls Above this broken world Try as you may, there are things you can’t escape No, you can’t un-see those self-destructive tragedies And you may be bound, tethered to the ropes you’ve found You can go far away, but some things you can’t escape You are who you are, now. You are who you are You are who you are, now. You are who you are You are who you are, now. Yes, I (yes, I) I have this dream sometimes The Mothership takes my damaged girl to another world I watch her fly (I watch her fly) into the ocean of lights The sky is filled with a million pearls Above this broken world (Broken world, damaged girls, a million pearls in space) (Broken world), I have this dream sometime (damaged girls), where I watch her fly (A million pearls in space), I have this dream sometimes…

FORGOTTEN ASTRONAUT (Lyrics: Matt Sharp) We’re high above the tranquil sea I take a big deep breath and set the Eagle free Oh, I know, what I know and I know it’s all up to me But, I feel what I feel and I feel the history Over two hundred thousand miles home If the Eagle fails, I go back alone Oh, I know, what I know and I know it’s all up to me But, I feel what I feel and yeah, I feel the history They got names like superheroes, bigger than The Beatles or I could ever be They got all the great one-liners, written in the schoolbooks for all eternity They’re bouncing up and down in the tranquil sea Three hundred million girls watch on TV Oh, I know, what I know and I know its just jealousy But, I feel what I feel and I feel it endlessly They got names like superheroes, bigger than The Beatles or I could ever be They got all the great one-liners, written in the schoolbooks for all eternity We are waiting for connection, trans-Earth injection, three thousand degrees, yes Splashdown, North Pacific Ocean; soon we will be home where Hornet waits for three, yeah Oh, I know what I know, as my parachutes released Like peppermint candy we float in a blue-sky dream Like “Starlite Mints” we move through the cotton sky And the arms of the ocean are stretched out; open wide Yeah, they got all the great one-liners, written in the schoolbooks for everyone to read Yeah, they got names like superheroes, bigger than The Beatles on black and white TV And now I’ve all but been forgotten, Forgotten Astronaut has been lost to history, yeah THE END

Conspiracy 04:26
I don’t know about our institutions; the fairytales they taught us in class They never told the truth about anything; that’s just a fact Awe, no, we’ll never know the truth about Elvis You say, he’s living in Jim Morrison’s flat? Hiding away with Princess Diana just trying to relax? Tell me, what should I really try to believe? (Conspiracy) Yeah, tell me and I will try to believe your conspiracy (Conspiracy) The intel inside The War Room is hid behind a code we can’t crack The secret bunkers down in Grand Central are filled to the max And you say, a hundred and seventy-six miles outside of Vegas Is where Stanley filmed that spacecraft That’s where Tricky Dick faked the moon landing; then had a nice laugh (ha, ha, ha, ha, ha) Tell me, what should I really try to believe? (Conspiracy) (Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me; show me, show me, show me, show me) (Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me; know me, know me, know me, know me) Yeah, tell me and I will try to believe your conspiracy (Conspiracy) In the hills, in the hills, in the Ellensburg Hills, rumors of the paranormal There’s hole, there’s a hole, Mel’s bottomless hole; it must be some kind of portal Tell me, what should I really try to believe? You say, Elvis lives with The Lizard King? (tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me) They’re with Princess Di, tell me one more thing… Tupac and Kurt Cobain, do they live there too? (show me, show me, show me, show me) Is Andy Kaufman still playing tricks on you? There are UFOs (Conspiracy); Art Bell told you so They crashed Northwest of here in New Mexico Check the Baltic Sea (Conspiracy), on the ocean floor Swear to secrecy and tell me just one more Conspiracy (Conspiracy) Conspiracy (Conspiracy)

Frigid Tuesday morning, waiting for the winds to die Shake the Magic 8 Ball; ask if everything’s all right Outside the thermometer reads 31 degrees Our families in the bleachers, bundled up so they don’t freeze Filled with pride to watch their children fly Eleven Thirty, Eastern Standard Time (We want to take you) Into the great big blue Into the great big blue, we want to take you Into the great big blue (we want to take you) Into the great big blue We skate across the launch-pad, anxious sled dogs on the ice Tidal wave of darkness waits above the morning sky Strapped onto the rocket, after multiple delays Came down with “Go Fever”, after 6 or 7 days Lost in wonder, dreaming how it feels (how it feels) Blasting off from NASA’s frozen fields (We want to take you) Into the great big blue Into the great big blue, we want to take you Into the great big blue (we want to take you) Into the great big blue Isaac’s laws of motion, coming true, right now Classical mechanics start to take us down (we’re going down) Atlas holds the heavens a little too (Atlas holds the heavens too far) far out Falling to his ocean, never to be found (we’re going down, never to be found) (We want to take you) Into the great big blue Into the great big blue (we want to take you) Into the great big blue Into the great big blue Grey graffiti sprayed across the sky Fall like streamers, eighteen miles high (we want to take you) Grey graffiti sprayed across the sky Fall like streamers, eighteen miles high (We want to take you) …blue, blue

This desperate need to constantly share The comfort we take (hey), thinking someone is there Everyone wants to show you everything is fine, fine; fine Everybody wanna to show you they’re OK; share every little detail of their day Everybody wanna overload on information The need to connect with someone out there Unfounded hope (oh), in unbounded prayers (Everyone wants to show you everything is fine, fine; fine) Everybody wanna to show you they’re OK; share every little detail of their day Everybody wanna overload on information Sometimes, I wanna leave this star behind; get lost in the ocean of the night Find an island in the sky far from information My friends they try to tell me everything is fine, fine; fine They want to show that they’re OK Every detail of their day, all that information They want to show us what they’ve seen and know that we’re listening To all their information Everybody wanna to show you they’re OK; share every little detail of their day Everybody wanna overload on information Sometimes, I wanna leave this star behind; get lost in the ocean of the night Find an island in the sky far from information Do you wanna fly away with me? Our best friend could be a cosmic chimpanzee We’ll break the chains and be set free from information We could leave this star behind; find an island is the sky Far away from information

We are mad schizophrenic drifters We hitchhiked across the milky way We’ve traveled through multiple dimensions Looking for a better place to play D.I.D., damaged and bipolar Breaking through the Sun’s magnetic field We are on a supernatural voyage Searching for a place where we can heal (Ooh hoo!) Spaceships gonna take away our heartache (Uh ho!) Spaceships gonna take away our pain (Ooh hoo!) Spaceships gonna take us far from sorrow (Oh, yeah!) Spaceships gonna take us far away We are not simple men of science We are not your parent’s astronauts We are not role models for your children We remember less than we forgot (Ooh hoo!) Spaceships gonna take away our heartache (Uh ho!) Spaceships gonna take away our pain (Ooh hoo!) Spaceships gonna take us far from sorrow (Oh, yeah!) Spaceships gonna take us far away (Ooh hoo!) Spaceships gonna take away our heartache (Uh ho!) Spaceships gonna take away our pain (Ooh hoo!) Spaceships gonna take us far from sorrow (Oh, yeah!) Spaceships gonna take us far away We are schizophrenic drifters, lost in multiple dimensions A supernatural voyage, searching for a place to call home (Gonna take us far from sorrow, gonna take us far away) We are schizophrenic drifters, lost in multiple dimensions A supernatural voyage, searching for a place to call home Spaceships gonna take us far away Spaceships gonna take us far away We’ll live to dance another day Spaceships gonna take us far away

Here’s the story of how we became friends We met on the day that the world would end Attacks first started in West Berlin Uh oh, uh, oh tonight The simultaneous strikes Four thousand cities at the same time Seven billion people died side by side Uh, uh, uh, oh, tonight Sirens in the sky (no one can save us) The two last souls collide Invasion night; the laser lights are shinning bright And in the fight darkness descends But, you and I, we didn’t die; we’re still alive Just waiting for the world to end (is this the end?) We waited for the blitzkrieg to stop Hotwired a Mercury Sport drop-top Genocide is the saddest place to hook up Uh, uh, uh, oh, tonight There’s no one left to be saved Just empty cars on P.C.H. We drove all night to San Simeon Bay In William’s House, we’ll hide Sirens in the sky (no one can save us) The two last souls collide Invasion night; the laser lights are shinning bright And in the fight darkness descends But, you and I, we didn’t die; we’re still alive Just waiting for the world to end (is this the end?) In the Neptune Pool, tonight (no one will find us) The two last souls collide Invasion night; the laser lights are shinning bright And in the fight darkness descends But, you and I, we didn’t die; we’re still alive Just waiting for the world to end (is this the end?) Hold on to the end Hold on…

To wake up inside another world To breakdown beside another girl In this room where no one else can see What tortures you, tortures me Travel time to another day Cloudy eyes dream of Milky Way Laying waste to countless butterflies In the hope it will change our lives Standing in the grace of another world We’ll never be the same in another world Awe, no Tic toc through the time tunnel maze Desperate hearts move at a desperate pace As we twist into another age To rendezvous with yesterday Standing in the grace of another world We’ll never be the same in another world Awe, no Standing in the grace of another world All our dreams, like Wilton Sugar Pearls Awe, no Standing in the grace of another world We’ll never be the same in another world Awe, no No, no, no, no No
