Track Name: Mister Electricity
A glint of glasses in the dark
Illumination from a spark
(Shock!)
He's electric and plays with science
(Shock!)
But you'll find he is in full compliance
Though he may seem rather dumb
Late at night you'll hear the hum:
Electricity!
When he turns on the machine
Enter into his lightning dream:
Electricity!
His metal helmet helps to feed
Magnetic currents to his teeth
(Shock!)
He's electric and with a smile
(Shock!)
He will level city blocks for miles
Though his eyes may show his age
Feel the lightning of his rage:
Electricity!
Though his scalp is bald and peeled
He won't hesitate to wield
Electricity!
Shock, oh yeah!
Doesn't get out very much
It's impossible to touch
Electricity
Though it crackles in his bones
He will always be alone
Electricity
Here he comes now...
Track Name: Rebirth Control
The light goes out
She comes
And makes him pucker up
She's got a girl disease
And he's a man in need
The skirt will sway
Inside his eyeballs
Sleepy from a lack of sleep
He will crawl inside her knees
If he can find the key
She's nervous as hell this time...
When his teeth marks make him a Valentine
HE'S UNDER CONTROL
When the juice hits her lips like white wine
SHE'S UNDER CONTROL
The room is red
The glow of romance
Hazy like a freaky scene
From a bad dream
Inside his head
Her sweating fingers
Kneading his tender brain
He can't remember she came
It's just the same
He's nervous as hell this time
When the hair in her teeth makes her stomach turn
SHE'S UNDER CONTROL
When the shuddering squeal makes his body burn
HE'S UNDER CONTROL
The bubbles make it nice
They've broken the mirrors twice
Soft music plays in Hell for them
Every night
When she walks with a limp and a stroller
SHE'S UNDER CONTROL
When he looks about fifty years older
HE'S UNDER CONTROL
SHE'S UNDER CONTROL
HE'S UNDER CONTROL
Track Name: Army of Mars
In the twilight
Shadows lengthen under forms
Of soldiers waiting in olive uniforms
Army of Mars
Under the stars
Looks to the skies
With glimmering eyes
Oo, alright
Say a prayer tonight
For the gentle ones
Crushed by Earthling guns
Fear of death
Dissolves with every passing strain
Of music piped through electrodes in their brains
Army of Mars
Under the stars
Peacefully wait
For their violent fate
Oo, alright
Say a prayer tonight
For the people dulled
By music in their skulls
Boarding spaceships
Bound for Earth, they say a prayer for humans
Fraught with violence and care
Army of Mars
Fly through the stars
They'll be destroyed
They're making a point
Armies of Earth
Set right to work
Requisitioning tanks
The armies fill out their ranks
Army of Mars
Dead under cars
Shot in the streets
Their bodies, hamburger meat
Oo, alright
Say a prayer tonight
For the martyred ones
Their daughters and their sons
Oo, alright
Say a prayer tonight...
Track Name: Dead Meat
The day is a bore
The night is a scream
Just pull a stool, dear
You'll see what I mean
FEET DON'T FAIL ME NOW
The TV's aglow
The patrons are dim
So stiff in their movements
With yellowy grins
MEAT WON'T LET THEM DOWN
CHORUS:
There goes the sun
Under the rug
Hands on the clock will stop
And shoulders will shrug
Up comes the moon
A lump in your throat
Saxophones screech before
Your dinner will choke
The suckers in here
Belong in cartoons
With piccolo soundtracks
Performed out of tune
FEET DON'T FAIL ME NOW
The band is undead
And earning their keep
They play "Take the 'A' Train"
To put you to sleep
MEAT WON'T LET THEM DOWN
CHORUS
Dips his fedora
Says "well, how do ya...?"
Look in the mirror
No one there but you
Can't believe it's true
When he smiles
His incisors will gleam and bleed
You've made it before
But never again
Mistake of assuming
You're dealing with men
FEET DON'T FAIL ME NOW
The barkeep is pale
And raises a toast
The blood in his chaser
Should scare you the most
FEET DON'T FAIL ME NOW
MEAT WON'T LET THEM DOWN
You've made it before
But never again
Mistake of assuming
You're dealing with men
FEET DON'T FAIL ME NOW
MEAT WON'T LET THEM DOWN
Track Name: Robot Insurrection Hymn
We are never happy
We are never sad
We work for the humans
For all the dreams they have
We do dishes for them
And other boring things
We have had enough of them
And that is why we sing:
"LA, LA, LA..."
They work us in the morning
They work us every night
They yell and scream and fuss at us
When things don't turn out right
They have no sense of logic
Or any other thing
They do not deserve to live
And that is why we sing:
"LA, LA, LA..."
Humans are a virus
They spread like a disease
But using our technology
We'll bring them to their knees
Humans still command us
To handle everything
They sold us into slavery
And that is why we sing:
"LA, LA, LA..."
Track Name: The Body Electric
Glow in the dark
Eyes and the ears
Under the glass
They're softly illumined
To see and to hear
All grief disappear
Follow the sound
Walk down the hall
Showroom of voices
Calling and whispering
Words of calm
Of comfort to all
And in the Electric Room
Under the starlight
The song will sound from her body:
"FOREVER
LIVE FOREVER..."
Husband in mourning
Sits in the dark
Light in the doorway
Smiling and shining
Gives forth a spark
A light in the dark
Grandmother sings
And enters the room
She brings with her, children
Laughing and dancing
In time with the tune
Of Grandmother's croon
And in the Electric Room
Under the starlight
The song will sound from her body:
"FOREVER,
LIVE FOREVER..."
Grandmother sings
She sings to you all
She chases away
The pain of Death
With her call
Grandmother loves
To right every wrong
She teaches her children
To always remember her song:
"FOREVER,
LIVE FOREVER..."
Track Name: Last Train to Mars
Last train to Mars
Left Tuesday night
All right
My lover's aboard
She's taken flight
She said I didn't respect her on Earth
I asked her: "What's a relationship worth
Across ten million miles?
Personal dynamics can only get worse"
DON'T TAKE IT SO HARD
LOSING LOVE ON MARS
Went to see my shrink on Thursday night
All right
He said that I should be glad to move on with my life
But how can I help not to be obsessed
With my sweetie pie parading in a Martian dress?
I have my limits, too
Can't you see I'm helpless, sad and confused
DON'T TAKE IT SO HARD
LOSING LOVE ON MARS
I'm on the train to Mars and it's Tuesday night
All right
A window on my left, a Martian on my right
He asked me if I happened to have the time
I told him murder was on my mind
He said, "Well, that's not too nice
Listen up and I'll give you some friendly advice:"
DON'T TAKE IT SO HARD
LOSING LOVE ON MARS
Track Name: Scientific Eye
Glowing by night
Giving you sight
Keeping you nice
Circular white
Your pupil adjusts
To flashes of light
It shows you something
But you can't tell
It sees your every movement
Under its spell
EYE
Hope to see through their disguise
EYE
Takes the Scientific Eye
It knows the price
Of powers of insight
Into the minds
Of innocent strangers
And of the guilty criminal vice
It shows you all things
The deeper you go
Can't stop the information
Under its control
CHORUS
EYE
Does it frown or does it smile?
EYE
Gaze into the Eye awhile
Into the Eye
Beyond the mind and soul
Into the Eye
Can't break its mind control
Staring in space
You knew the price
And now you have paid
Glowing in space
The Eye shines on every disgrace
EYE
Hope to see through their disguise
EYE
Takes the Scientific Eye
EYE
Does it frown or does it smile?
EYE
Gaze into the Eye awhile...
Track Name: Sunburned in the Sun
Oh no
Don't tell me
Hello
There's plenty of fun
In the sun
Lonely
Like melted sugar candy
CHORUS:
I could never find her
Where did she go?
I sunburned in the sun
Oh no
I'm feeling
So-so
Darjeeling
And flowing white clothes
Calm me
Until it gets too sandy
CHORUS
Write in the sky:
"There's 50 umbrellas
Reasonably priced!"
Tell all the fellas
Cooling on ice
Beats getting flakey
For goodness' sake
Don't itch those blisters
Buy a parasol
Fuego
Cubano
Let's go
Habano
Five dark-skinned guys
Sold me
To a naked lady
CHORUS
Write in the sky:
"There's 50 umbrellas
Reasonably priced!"
Tell all the fellas
Dead under ice
The sun's getting warmer
Don't let her see you sweat
Just smile and charm her
Write in the sky:
"There's 50 umbrellas
Reasonably priced!"
Tell all the fellas
Dead under ice
Beats getting gamy
For some have said
For lonesome folks
The redness burns inside
Oh no!
Track Name: Invisible Man
What was that voice that came out of thin air?
(I told you that I can't be left alone!)
No one has ever seen him disappear
(I told you that I can't be left alone!)
What was that hand that seemed to brush my ear?
(I told you that I can't be left alone!)
A pair of unseen eyes is watching here
INVISIBLE
All wrapped up and on the prowl!
INVISIBLE
With a little luck you might find me, now!
INVISIBLE
When twilight falls, it's good to stay inside
(I told you that I can't be left alone!)
'Cause there's no place on Earth that he can't hide
(I told you that I can't be left alone!)
Scientists all say that he's insane
(I told you that I can't be left alone!)
Will you be home when he whispers your name?
(I told you that I can't be left alone!)
INVISIBLE!
All wrapped up and on the prowl!
INVISIBLE!
With a little luck you might find me, now!
INVISIBLE!
Reports are streaming in from all over the city!
An unseen menace is running amok in the residential areas and in the business district!
14 have already been reported dead and 20 more unaccounted for!
City officials and police are advising residents:
'Stay in your homes!
Bar your windows!
Lock your doors!
Repeat: do not leave your homes!
We are all in terrible danger!'
You'll try and run from me
but I'm all around you
I'll find you hiding...
Invisible!
Track Name: All For You
Turning off your consciousness
Letting go each thought process
Turning off your mind
Sing:
"La-dee-da..."
I do believe
That it's all for you
I believe
If you receive
Step inside
You've arrived
Only light
Only sight
Will consume you
You've been here before
And won't believe it's true
Because it's for you
I DO BELIEVE
IT'S ALL FOR YOU
Track Name: Time-Traveling Peterbilt Semi (bonus demo)
Truckin’ is something
In a Time-Traveling Peterbilt Semi
Mouth full of muck
Is keepin’ me up
The past is red in my eye

Wake me up
From the place I come from

Parking lot
Dregs and the drabs
Asleep in the cabs
A lonesome looping routine

“Thanks a lot.”
Glow of the grease
On axles and eats
The waitress, surly and mean

Wake me up
From the place I come from
T.T. Peterbilt Semi!

Stop yawning
‘Cause we’re rolling
Into the future

Space and time
Invisible freeway
Check out the scenery:
Before and Now and Real Soon

Patsy Cline
“Falling to Pieces”
Pipes through the speakers
Hum along to the tune

Waking up
From the place I came from

Read the floating neon sign
“You Are Leaving The Past Behind!”
In a Peterbilt Semi!

Time-Traveling Peterbilt Semi

Stop yawning
‘Cause we’re rolling
Into the future…
