    Machine Messiah
    Part i

    Run down a street
    Where the glass shows
    That summer has gone
    Age, in the doorways
    Resenting the pace of the dawn.
    All of them standing in line
    All of them waiting for time.
    From time, the great healer,
    The machine-messiah
    Is born.

    Cables that carry the life
    To the cities we build
    Threads that link diamonds of life
    To the satanic mills
    Ah, to see in every way
    That we feel it every
    Day, and know that
    Maybe we'll change
    Offered the chance
    To finally unlearn our lessons
    And alter our stance.

    Part ii

    Friends make their way into systems of chance
    (reply- friends make their way of escape into systems of chance)
    Escape to freedom I need to be there
    Waiting and watching, the tables are turning
    I'm waiting and watching
    I need to be there.

    I care to see them walk away
    And, to be there when they say
    They will return.

    Machine, messiah
    The mindless
    Search for a higher
    Controller
    Take me to the fire
    And hold me
    Show me the strength of your
    Singular eye.

    Part iii

    History dictating symptoms of ruling romance
    Claws at the shores of the water upon which we dance
    All of us standing in line
    All of us waiting for time
    To feel it, all the way
    And to be there when they
    Say they know that
    Maybe we'll change
    Offered the chance
    To finally unlearn our lessons
    And alter our stance.

    Machine, machine messiah.
    Take me into the fire

    Hold me, machine messiah
    And show me
    The strength of your singular eye.
    White Car


    I see a man in a white car
    Move like a ghost on the skyline
    Take all your dreams
    And you throw them away
    Man in a white car.
    Does It Really Happen?


    That's what you say
    Does it really happen to you
    Does that explain
    This is the season for this display.
    To take a look
    In time to move together

    Chorus:
    Time is the measure before it's begun
    Slips away like running water
    Live for the pleasure, live by the gun
    Heritage for sun and daughter
    Down to the slaughter up for the fun
    Up for anything.

    Could this be true
    Does it ever happen to you
    And can you prove
    That wheels go 'round in reason
    You take a step
    In time,
    To move together

    Chorus

    You walk, the way
    You take, the path
    To be, assured
    You draw, a graph
    The scale, you use
    Is all, on black
    Be brave, the weight
    Will make, the heat
    There is, no way
    To take-it back.

    Repeat chorus
    Run Through the Light


    I asked my love to give me shelter
    And all she offered me were dreams
    Of all the moments spent together
    That move like never ending streams.

    Run to the light
    Everything is alright
    Run thro' the light of day
    You run to the light of night

    And every movement made together
    Till every thought was just the same
    And all the pieces fit forever
    In the game.

    Welcome to the light
    Now everything is okay
    Run thro' the light of night
    You run to the light of day.
    Tempus Fugit


    Born in the night
    She would run like a leopard
    That freaks at the sight
    Of a mind close beside herself
    And the nearer I came
    How the country would change
    She was using the landscape
    To hide herself.

    More in the mind
    Than the body this feeling
    A sense at the end
    Of a circular line
    That is drawn at an angle
    I see when I'm with you
    To navigate waters and finally answer to-yes.

    If you were there you would want to be near me
    Innocence, you could hold all the materials
    And though nothing would really be living
    It would shock your fall into landing light
    In the north sky time flies fast to the morning
    The cold of the dawn it meant nothing to us
    You were keeping your best situation
    An answer to-yes

    (yes, yes) and the moment I see you
    (yes, yes) it's so good to be near you
    (yes, yes) and the feeling you give me
    (yes, yes) makes me want to be with you
    (yes, yes) from the moment you tell me - yes

    If you could see all the roads I have travelled
    Towards some unusable last equilibrium
    Run like an athlete and die like a dead beaten speed-freak
    An answer to all of your answers to-yes

    In the north sky time flies faster than morning
    The cold of the dawn it meant nothing to us
    You were keeping your best situation
    An answer to yes

    (yes, yes) and the moment I see you
    (yes, yes) it's so good to be near you
    (yes, yes) and the feeling you give me
    (yes, yes) makes me want to be with you
    (yes, yes) if we wait for an answer
    (yes, yes) will the silence be broken
    (yes, yes) should we wait for an answer
    (yes, yes) do we leave it unspoken

    (yes yes yes yes . . .)
