Track Name: Science Fiction
He said he’d opened the mind up of another one
Taken the prizes of a great many competitions
And all the people they stood on their chairs and they stared
At the man with the silver hair
Taken the findings of the science man
Raising his hands to the air

So he’s making the minds up of the millions
And they’d never deny that he’s right
‘Cause he’s taken a prize of many a size
If ever he dies he’ll have a tombstone of a very high height

Yes he’s making the minds up of the millions
And they’d never deny that he’s right
Coz he’s taken a prize of many a size
He wears his disguise all of the day and in the middle of the night
Track Name: Go By The River
Go by the river
Go by the road

You’re on your own
You’re on your own

I’ve seen the coming of the storm
I’ve seen the ground beneath you
Track Name: Revolution Comes With An Act Of Love
Revolution comes with an act of love
Listen closely now to the sound of the turtle dove
Wings are broken but she sings her song
And all we’ve got to do is sing along

And so on every street
The marching of the soldier's feet
Marching in time
To the laughing of a fool
To the laughing of a fool

You sow just what you reap
We’re digging deeper far beneath
Digging for the gold
We were promised by a fool
We were promised by a fool

Revolution comes with an act of love
Listen closely now to the sound of the turtle dove
Wings are broken but she sings her song
And all we’ve got to do is sing along
All we’ve got to do is sing along
All we’ve got to do is sing along

Revolution comes with an act of love
Listen closely now to the sound of the turtle dove
Revolution comes with an act of love
Listen closely now to the sound of the turtle dove
Track Name: Cold Sweat
Go
Or it's never gonna matter at all
Go
Cause they're coming, oh they're coming to call
Go now
While you
Still can
Go before the coming of dawn
On and on
Cause they’re coming, oh they're coming and it's never gonna matter at all

Go
And you're running just as fast as you can
Go
Running faster than you ever ran
Go now
Go now
Go now
Go before the coming of dawn
On and on
And you never turn your head, you never turn your head, you never turn it

You never woken with a cold sweat
No you never talk about it
You never talk about it
You never talk about it anymore
Track Name: The Others
A single drop of mercury upon the silver sky
Like dancing silver sixpennies beyond the speed of light
It burns through paper, wood and steel, a lightning shade of blue
And circled in indifference as time goes speeding through

Or not
Or not
You won’t remember
You won’t recall
You won’t remember
You won’t recall
Track Name: Timehole (Gonna Build A Rocket Tonight)
Gonna build a rocket tonight
Fly it off of Jupiter
Gonna build a rocket tonight
Gonna build a rocket

Gonna build a rocket
And then I’m gonna set it
Alight

Gonna build a rocket tonight
Fly it off of jupiter
Only taking one woman with me
And you know who that is gonna be

Gonna build a rocket
And then I’m gonna set it
Alight

I was gonna build a rocket tonight
But I haven’t got the tools to build it
So we gotta find another way out
Hole in time
Opening wide
Close your eyes and I’ll see you on the other side

Gonna build a rocket tonight
Fly it off of Jupiter
Gonna build a rocket tonight
Gonna build a rocket

Gonna build a rocket
And then I’m gonna set it
Alight
Track Name: The Cards That You're Playing
I've seen the cards that you're playing
Track Name: Paper Aeroplane & Silver Moon
I saw her smiling in the rain
And all the people knew her name
Maybe she'd never love again
But no, she did not show her pain
I'll have to make a paper aeroplane
And send it her way

With none to lose and all to gain
I've got to speak to her today
But I just don't know what she'll say
I guess if she don't feel the same
I'll have to take my paper aeroplane and throw it all away

I don’t even know you boy
But you said you're the one for me
And you said that you loved me
I said it could never be

And nobody knows it
So maybe it’s all a dream
And nobody knows it
So maybe it’s all a dream

A secret path I found that wound around the mountain
Down below the tortoise and the hare
I’ve seen the lonely lion playing in the fountain
Give to me the burdens that you bear
And in the east I’ve seen the silver moon arising
There you were with flowers in your hair
But when I reach for you I see the image fading
Gone into the misty morning air

I've seen the carnival that whirls outside your window
Come with me and ride the ferris wheel
And when the summer comes we'll walk out in the country
Give to me the fears that you feel
And then I'll tell you all the things that I've been thinking
On the wind those distant bells appeal
And then the air goes still and all the birds are silent
In the new sunlight all is revealed

In the north I’ve seen a nest of golden eagles
Cared for by a mother overrun
And though the record plays, broken is the needle
The cakes she bakes are never underdone
And as the raven flies he calls out to the people
cast your eyes upon the setting sun
And all at once they sang a song from every steeple
Don't you know that this girl is the one
Track Name: The Devil Again
In the end
It’s all the same
In the end it’s all the same
In the end
They’ll know your name
In the end they’ll know your name

Gonna go and see the devil again
Don’t you know he only wanted a friend
Gonna go and see the devil again
Don’t you know he only wanted a friend

Once again
They’ll know your name
Once again they’ll know your name
In the end
It’s just a game
In the end it’s just a game

Gonna go and see the devil again
Don’t you know he only wanted a friend
Gonna go and see the devil again
Don’t you know he only wanted a friend

In the end
It’s all the same
In the end it’s all the same
In the end
They’ll know your name
In the end they’ll know you

Gonna go and see the devil again
Don’t you know he only wanted a friend
Gonna go and see the devil again
Don’t you know he only wanted a friend
