Track Name: Infinite Possibilities
Infinite Possibilities/ What's real /In my head/ Are the visions that shape my reality/ Everyone needs their own movie / I can/ Feel you/ Overwhelmed by infinite possibility/ Overtaken by utopian society/ I am a mountain/ But these mountains look much like buildings to me/  Will you/ Shape me/Sign up to my course we're teaching dignity/For a limited money back guarantee/ We could use you/ Turn this data into harmony/ To make sense of this great bureaucracy/ I am boss free/ But these people look a lot  like bosses to me/ Join us/ Be free/ Everyone laughs and cries together/ We're in this world together/ We are the ones/ In this paradise of paradise possibility/ Everyone is part of this great harmony//
Track Name: All That Seems
All That Seems/All that seems/ Is but a dream within a dream/ All that seems/ He's got a face like an angel but his heart is cold/ When people are kind we pay no attention at all/ And all that seems/Is but a dream within a dream /All that seems/And he conjured her like a song/ A lonely line on a distant horizon/ And his words emerge like a river/ From the delta to something bigger/ Grain fallen on the ground doesn't die/ This is only the beginning/ From the path of least resistance/ On a path going no where at all/ All that seems/ Is but a dream within a dream/ All that seems/ Is but a dream within a dream/All that seems//
Track Name: All That's Gained
All That's Gained/They built a subway on a great lake/ Just when you thought that Autumn had come late/ When Rapeseed blooms all around you/ There's someone following you/ This shiny city is built from dirt/ Money courses through her veins/ She's got a tiger's head with a snake’s tail/ She's all or nothing either way/ Truth weighs uneasy in the face of fortune/ When fortune smooths the wounds in the madhouse/ And it’s not too late to remember/ The man you used to be/ And it's live or die together/ When the victor pays the higher price/ When neither side can surrender/ When all that's gained is lost/  These are the days that I remember/ When all that’s gained is lost/ And its live or die together/ When the victor pays the higher price/ And neither side can surrender/ When all that's gained is lost//
Track Name: Socotra
Socotra/ Rid ourselves of/ Polluting waters/ Don't sit idle to watch/ Hostile forces/ Take up position/ In public opinion/ Rumours end/ With wise men/ And the Internet/ Is like Socotra/ Endemic species/ New realities/ Like a monster/ From out of space?/ Or just a chapter/ In my story/ You can make me/ Appear on TV/ Don't believe/ Everything you see here/ We must carry/ The main melody/ Arouse the great strength/ Of this society/ And I’m thinking about/ Liberation/ You show me/ Incarceration/ Virtual fantasy/ Virtual harmony/ But these walls are/ My main melody/ /
Track Name: Socotra Reprise
Socotra Reprise/ At least I know where I stand/ You've got me held in the palm of your hand/ Your secret’s locked deep inside/You hold the key and I walk the line/ Like a pyramid cased in limestone/The world is watching you through sheets of gold/ In aggregate our state’s unknown/ My family is all I know/ And I don't mind how you say your lies/I see the truth speaking through your eyes/In the folds between your hues of gold/ is my street, my family, my home/ How did I get here/Will it be enough/For my brothers in these streets of love /Did I try hard enough/ Did I try/ /
Track Name: Airstrike
Airstrike/ Sunday Evening/ And I'm drifting/ Grasshoppers call/ Dainty heroes outside my walls/ And the night bird sings/ Spreading her broad wings/ Hooked beak strikes like a missile in flight/ And soldiers form/ Airstrike/ Fingered wings linger through the sky/ And citizens cry/ Led by the wind/ Her prey is whichever way the wind blows/ Hooked beak strikes like a missile in flight/ Led by the wind/ Her prey is whichever way the wind blows//
Track Name: Birdman
Birdman/Some Disease Is crawling/ Under my skin/ Don't let me down/ Don't let me down/ Give me shelter under your wing/ Some birds are made for killing/ a quick cupid cut below the jowl/ Don't leave me high/ Don't leave me high/ You’re all the drug I need/ In my dreams I'm falling/ In and out of your arms/ It's hard to believe/ It's hard to believe/ Our time is passing by/ It's hard to believe/ It's hard to believe/ It's hard to believe//
Track Name: Lost Good Hell
Lost Good Hell/ In the crowd I'm right behind you/ Don't want to lose you again/’Cause I'm talking about two choices/ You're too nostalgic for your lost good hell/ And there's so much you didn't say/ Chasing shadows with your gaze/ And I can tell you something/ I wouldn't have it any other way/ Don't rely on time to speak the truth/ ‘Cause history's like writing any other story/ Just make it up as we go along/ That way we'll never be wrong/ And I can tell you something/ You're too nostalgic for our lost good hell/ And I can tell you something/ We’re too nostalgic for our lost good hell//
Track Name: Dangerous Visions
Dangerous Visions/ There were millions and millions of people/ And I couldn't get myself together/ To be alone is to have no-one/ And to have no-one  is to have no home/ Fierce browed you walked into the crowd/ And you coolly defied everyone/ To live like you're walking upside down/ Which way is the right way anyhow/ And these are dangerous visions/ And there’s a  monster growing in my mind/ The Gun club meet to talk this thing called peace/ Our artillery is destined for obscurity/ Our chance is now to liberate the people/ To take this club to the next level/ And these are dangerous visions/ And there’s a  monster growing in my mind/ And these are dangerous visions/ And there’s a  monster growing in my mind/In the city brother will fight with brother/ They try to swallow the fear or the courage of the other/ I don't know which but I know the city lights are always brighter/ particularly when the clouds are growing darker/ And these are dangerous visions/ And there’s a  monster growing in my mind/ And these are dangerous visions/ And there’s a  monster growing in my mind//
Track Name: Century Sleep
Century Sleep/ Just fall asleep for this century/ Put your mind at ease my love/ Each new era is better than the last/ At least for those who have/ You want to leave this world behind you/ To sing their songs without you/ And I hope your day will come/ When they will sing your song/ And each moment in time that passes/ I've gained in what I've lost/ And if I could leave you something/ I'd leave you my burning heart/ And what use is my body/ When all I need are these memories/ To float in and out of my ecstasy/ In and out of my body//
Track Name: Remember Me
Remember me/ Remember me/ Remember me/ ’Cause I’m not walking on/ You're like the wind blowing in/ Sweet ideas racing in/ I've got a little bit of money/ To buy our way out of this city/ The mess we're in/ And the mess we're in/ Take highway 31/ From Beijing to Yunnan's Kunming/ I want a small small high/ I want a small small high/ You said you got a little bit of something/ But I can’t wait I’m checking-out honey/ I can’t wait/ I can’t wait/ For the blossoms in mid-July/ As red as my heart and I can't find/ Your love/ Your love/ Is like the wind blowing in/ And sweet ideas are racing in/ Your love/ Your love/ Your love//
Track Name: The Track
The Track/ Ten to one drive/ The favourite’s fallen behind/ And I'm sitting high/ Because my baby is going to cross that line/ She keeps me up at night/ I ask her to quit/ But she tells me, Baby/ it makes me feel so alive/ And it's a perfect day/ Because the favourite is giving way/ Placing my bets/ Someone hollers hey/ Get back/ There's a jockey/ She's down/ She's on the track/ She keeps me up at night/ I ask her to quit/ But she tells me, Baby/ it makes me feel so alive/ And it's a perfect day/ Because the favourite is giving way//
Track Name: Wild Grass
Wild Grass/ All's lost/ The Yangtze’s all covered in snow/ All's lost/ In winter's heavenly vault/ Where wild grass cannot grow/ So long/ So long fellow brothers in hell/ Say Good Night/ Brother sweet brothers in hell/ Won’t you tell me what’s on your mind/ Is it something that we lost / When all the fire went out/ Let me die where ghosts can grow old/ Where the wild demons still roam/ Where we will be remembered/ Where our stories are told/ So long the good hell that was lost/ She'll be remembered so well/ And the ground's all covered in snow/ But may your wild grasses grow/ And so long all that was lost/ In Winter's heavenly vault/ And the ground is all covered in snow/ But may your wild grasses grow/And so long all that was lost/ In Winter's heavenly vault/ And the ground is all covered in snow/ But may your wild grasses grow//
