H Coldward and Stormward

First there was fire, and then the wheel
Now Moon Patrol, can complete the deal
We went from wax, to the reel to reel
The future will relax, in the battlefield

The long march of humanity, reaching out inevitably
Explore the frontiers, fish around, plumbing the depths of an all new sound
Crossing thresholds, sound barriers, setting aside all our ancient fears
Entertainment at any cost. Find fun in the unknown before all is lost

Don't give up hope in the new ice age
without displaying any will to wage
a supersonic combo of love and war
An e for effort only goes so far






H Doomed Metropolis

I am nothing more than a minion
sworn to go about my own business
watch the world we build chip away before my eyes
a subject of my own demise

running as fast as you can
to escape all of your worst fears
run forever and you'll go nowhere
a trail of dust and an expression of fear

stop thinking about the people you once knew and cared about
just wanting to be happy in life but never willing to try
I am nothing more than a minion
I will not escape doomed metropolis

running as fast as you can
in a direction away from hear
run forever and you'll go nowhere
a trail of dust and an expression of fear

In the village not the city
you will find peace in my mind
psychadelics in the arms
we'll have the past, the future is blind

living in the doomed metropolis
living in the doomed metropolis
living in the doomed metropolis
living in the doomed metropolis

one step forward six steps down
starts with my fingers, ends underground
one step forward six steps down
starts with my fingers, ends underground
one step forward six steps down
starts with my fingers, ends underground
one step forward six steps down
starts with my fingers, ends underground

In the village not the city
you will find peace in my mind

living in the doomed metropolis
living in the doomed metropolis
living in the doomed metropolis
living in the doomed metropolis

saved
in the doom metropolis
saved
in the doom metropolis
saved

















H Monorail to Everywhere

Remember when the playgrounds were made of metal
Remember when the speed limit was seventy-five
Remember when civilians rode the space shuttle
Remember when a childs toy could put out your eye

Riding the monorail to everywhere, everywhere
Riding the monorail to everywhere, everywhere

Remember when the people ignored prohibition
Remember when the candies had red number five
Remember when the swingers had no inhibitions
Remember when a childs toy could put out your eye

So it's ups in the morning and downers and night
then take a train to your connecting flight
All you want is public transportation
All we ask is mass sterilization

Hot tubs and quaaludes
Hot tubs and quaaludes
Hot tubs and quaaludes
Hot tubs and quaaludes

The mark of the beast is not a name or a number
It's just a tariff for a free ride
Now that the playground's made of plastic lumber
We'll snip the jewels and get the tubes tied

Hot tubs and quaaludes
Hot tubs and quaaludes
Hot tubs and quaaludes
Hot tubs and quaaludes

















H Id Ego

I have no shadow
this is what I know
Floating from the depths
I haven't seen it yet

No control, no submission
no use, no transition

Id Ego, Id Ego, Id Ego
Id Ego, Id Ego, Id Ego
Id Ego, Id Ego, Id Ego
Id Ego, Id Ego, Id Ego

I have no shadow
identity of it's own
send a million frequencies
blackness of all secrecies

Id Ego, Id Ego, Id Ego
Id Ego, Id Ego, Id Ego
Id Ego, Id Ego, Id Ego
Id Ego, Id Ego, Id Ego

No thoughts
No persuasion
No use
Just complication
No control
No submission
No use
No transition
No thoughts
No persuasion
No use
Just complication
















H Quickening of the Bishop

Your holy blood keeps me down
I want to live, conquer stay away
and through my heart and this eye

I'll move forward in life
not backwards in time
I'll take control
seize my destiny

His prophecy did not tell
the power within me that swells
and the moment will soon be at hand

I'll move forward in life
not backward in time
I'll take control
count my hours

Grab my mace and my magic came with me
You'll hear the story
The Bishop of Battle
will control your life

I seize the moment
I had all the power
I was dangerous and mad
now I'm your genie in a box

Now I'm your genie in a box
Now I'm your genie in a box
I'm not your genie in a box
Tell me your no genie in a box

















H Dark Lights the Dark

Darkness, darkness, darkness
my eyes peel open, and still I can't see
The sleeps that surrounds, it's heavy and leaded
heavy and leaded, and cold as a freeze
fuligin light, from under the street light
you'll never make it home, driving past me
I'll enter your mind, your eyes on the street light
in front of your eyes, the light starts to bleed

I can't see through the madness
Tell yourself you can never tell
There is nothing new to see
then you don't know yourself so well

I can see, in the dark
Grab your friends and run for cover
Without the sun you'll live forever
Hands and head held together
How can you live without the light

I can hear you
I can see you
I can breathe you
I can not touch you

Lightning loves frosted blue crackle

I can't see through the madness
Tell yourself you can never tell
There is nothing new to see
then you don't know yourself so well

I can see, in the dark
Grab your friends and run forever
Without the sun you'll live forever
Hands and head held together
How can you live without the light

I can see, in the dark

















H RCP-90

Even if I had six billion bullets
I would probably miss sometimes
When a predator species runs rampant
a bounty's offered for the ears of the curs
I would offer my ears up right now
I'm going deaf anyways

















H Light Darkens the Light

Sometimes I think of you and you're there
but when I'm alone at night and you think
I don't care, I'm at the...
I don't know where you've
been and I don't know where you're
going but I know how I
feel I'm at the bottom
at the bottom

Way out on the deep blue sky
You will find me and my mind
It's my life not just your dream
rolling down the hills and through the green

Sometimes I think of you and you're there
but when I'm alone at night and you think
I don't care, I'm at the...
I don't know where you've
been and I don't know where you're
going but I know how I
feel I'm at the bottom
at the bottom

Way out on the deep blue sky
You will find me and my mind
It's my life not just your dream
rolling down the hills and through the green

Way out, deep blue sky
You will find peace in my mind

Way out, deep blue sky
You will find peace in my mind

You will find a piece of my mind
You will find a piece of my mind
You will find a piece of my mind
It's my life, not your dream

















H Pretty Chords for Evil Sleep People

It is so absurd
All you see are words
Plastic connection, wanting to write to you

My machine can't talk
It's asleep a lot
Writing to you, crazy pop thinks I'm God

Where did you go?
Fun is invisible
Evil people, got to you through their view
Hello, what?, where are you?
A cursor is not like you
These pretty chords, wanting to give to you

No need for alarm
The evil people are all out of harm
Post pre-modern charm
I'll give to you exactly when you want me to
Magiclectricity
They'll get to you exactly when I let them through
Upgrade apologies
I'm more than 8-bit technology
