Take a ride with me, find the time within
Take my hand and let me strand
And show me places I have never seen
You smiled at my sight and said it’s alright

Where I can rest my mind, will it ever come?
Never took me away, I still wait for the day
Where you show me places I’ve never seen
Smiled at my sight and said it’s all right

Smelling the kerosene
Like a perfume in the air, I’d wished you were there,
But I’d never left, I swear, I promised you I’d care
Tasting the benzedrine,
My chemical brain said we’ll meet again
So I wait for you to turn in your mind, the way you set your time
You smiled a thousand smiles
In an hourglass-world you won’t be mad
There’ll be no need to call me “wife”, come with me and start a life

Remember the day, when you told me. It was the day we met. And I was afraid. All of our years vanished. But are we beyond that? And who is to say? Questions I can’t answer, I didn’t raise. We all raised something, but it never meant doubt. Doubts were for the believers and nobody was. Still we kept pushing forward. When all of a sudden millions stopped and slowly faded away. There’s no rush anymore. We were a long time around and with calm exaggeration you said “Let’s take a ride!”

We grow to be young again
But your pavement-coloured past recalls
Feel the concrete under your feet
‘Cause when the time is right, it’s a free for all
But we are on the way to the top
Like a jelly roll on the rocks
Oh, my sweet Sally
It’s the dawn of a new age

Wrap up five ingenious musicians in space suits and shoot them right into outer space. What will you get? One outstanding, higher-than-sky rock experience? Right. Smooth as silk guitar sounds enveloping around panty-tight rhythms even NASA’s DSAC could synchronize with? That’s right too. Well, almost right. ... more
