1. An Eye Is Upon You

Spinning complacently in the darkness,
covered and blinded by a blanket of little lives,
false security has lulled the madness of this world
into a slumber. WAKE UP!! An eye is upon you,
staring straight down and keenly through,
seeing all that you are and everything that you can never be.
Yes, and eye is upon you,
an eye ready to blink.

So face foward,
with arms wide open and mind reeling.
Your future has arrived...
are you ready to go?


2. Supernova Goes Pop

Are you the future or are you the past?
Have you been chosen or are you the last?
The pictures were sent they seem so unreal
Now I'm made of plastic wire and steel
Follow for now and follow for this
Cause everbody follows for nothing at all!!
Supernova your supernova...supernova goes pop
Supernova you think it's over but supernova don't stop
Can you explain just what you are,
I've never been this close to a star
The message was sent you know what to do,
Everybody needs to be someone don't you?
Supernova your supernova...supernova goes pop
Supernova you think it's over but supernova don't stop


3. When Worlds Collide

What is it really that is going on here,
You've got the system for total control
So is there anybody out there,
Now watch us suffer,
Cause we can't go
What is it really that is in your head,
What little life that you have just died
I'm gonna be the one that's takin' over,
Now this is what it's like when worlds collide...
Are you ready to go- cause I'm ready to go- what you gonna do?
Are you going with me- cause I'm going with you- it's the end of all time
What is it really that motiviates you,
The need to fly or this fear to stop
I'll go along for the ride but suprise,
When we get there I say 9 of 10 drop
Now who's the light and who is the devil,
You can't decide so I'll be your guide
And one by one they will be hand chosen,
Now this is what it's like when worlds collide...
Are you ready to go- cause I'm ready to go- what you gonna do?
Are you going with me- cause I'm going with you- it's the end of all time
Now this is what it's like when worlds collide...
What is it really when they're falling over,
Everything that you thought is denied
I'm gonna be the one that's takin' over,
Now this is what it's like when worlds collide


4. Nobody's Real

Scary monsters and super peeps
The more you dream the less you sleep
Life as you know it has gone away
Unbound,
Unwound,
Who's here to stay
Could you predict,
Could you forsee artificial by necessity
Rockets and robots can save your life when you don't care about what's real it's alright
Nobody's real but they're willing to let you know
Noboyd's real but they'll feel it tonight
Nobody's real but they're willing to let you go
Nobody's real but they'll feel it...
How do you sleep with the time that's left you,
It's all been done there's no need for the rescue
So let's just get out,
I swear there's no doubt,
You can't be ready 'cause there's nothing left to do...


5. System 11:11

There's a system to the system-
I don't fit in the system.
Go yeah go but don't expect me to miss you-
trying to find a hole in the bottom of the soul-less,
thinking about the world from the edge,
you can't control this.
Now what the fuck are you some kind of half-assed astronaut?
Just a moment please I must insist that you stop


6. Tonight The Stars Revolt!

Hang on to tomorrow because tonight the stars revolt
Do you believe and will you learn to scream like me?
There's nothing to it when stars revolt
They're only doing what they're told
What's the mystery the lights of death and fame shine on
Invaders from inside can easily replace you now
Hang on to tomorrow because tonight the stars...
Target earth for me because tonight the stars...
Sing your favorite song because tonight the stars...
Show the way to die because tonight the stars revolt!


7. Automatic

The trip is on for a million miles,
93 to the sun
Take your place and you say goodbye
It's automatic,
It's automatic
It's automatic you're the one
It's automatic,
It's automatic
Your day alive has just begun
What's in the air,
Who's in the mind,
Where's light in your eye
Within the realm of the possible,
It's no big surprise
It's automatic,
It's automatic- it's automatic you're the one
It's automatic,
It's automatic- your day alive has just begun
Brilliant sheep lead to brilliant babies,
A thousand stars a million maybes
Captivating the captivated,
Save the souls of those that you created


8. The Son Of X-51

Sitting with your eyes shut tightly,
Waiting for the time you must leave
Surrounded by people that you'll never know,
Still you must go and transmit the sound
Of what you have found and leave everything that you knew behind
Let's go,
I know the son of X-51
And so,
You'll know your time has only begun
Can it be what you want it to be,
Can it be everything?
Can it be everything that you want it to be,
Begging you to believe....
Let's go,
I know the son of X-51
And so,
You'll know your time has only begun
Watching with your arms wide open,
Thinking everyone should just stop
Surrounded by people that you'll never need,
A plan to deceive
Is what we all need,
And keep everything that you knew inside


9. Operate, Annihilate

I want to be everybody
I wish that I wasn't me
I was dropped from out of sight
I always land on my feet
I was bit by the buy
Grew 47 feet tall
I wasn't who I thought I was
I wasn't anything at all
I want to be everbody- I wish that I wasn't me
I'm the bones of the dead- superhero trustee
Not seven minutes have past- and everybody got blasted
Operate
Annihilate and everything is alirght...
Operate
Annihilate!
What you got
You got too late
'Cause everbody's gone
I want to be everybody- I wish that I wasn't me
The point furthest from is from a point of view less likely
You were the king of the moon- now you just lie in the dirt
Where is the fist of fury- now everybody get hurt
I want to be everybody- I wish that I wasn't me
The real truth is in the head of truth is insanity
Not seven minutes have past and everybody got blasted
Operate
Annihilate and everything is alright...


10. Blast Off To Nowhere

Blast off
Blast off to nowhere....
Blast off....
This is time to go
Blast off
Blast off to nowhere....
Blast off....
Are you really what you think so
Please just kill me now or get me off this rock
'Cause I can't stand to see your faces and I can't stand to hear you talk
Prepared for anything 'cause this time is for real
Burn the souls of those left behind and I don't care how you feel
'Cause it's time...
To blast off


11. They Know Who You Are

Gone for a moment that you'll never know
All of these things that you can't control?
They know who you are!!
They know who you are!!
They know who you are!!
They know who you are!!
Gone for a moment that you'll never know
All of these things that you can't control
The lights from above they move in real slow
Giving you things that you'll never know
They know who you are!!
They know who you are!!
They know who you are!!
They know who you are!!
One for machines that fill up the sky
And one for the demon that lights up you eye
They know who you are!!


12. Good Times Roll

let the good times roll
let them knock you around
let the good times roll
let them make you a clown
let them leave you up in the air
let them brush your rock and roll hair

let the good times roll
let the good times roll
let the good times roll
let the stories be cold

they can say what they want
let the photos be old
let them show what they want
if the illusion is real
let them give you a ride
if they got thunder appeal
let them be on your side


13. Watch The Sky For Me

Watch the sky for me
Watch the night
I'll be there for you in starlight
As your feet touch the ground
I'll be floating along
Watch the sky for me tonight
Just as every moment leads you to the past
Just as everything has gone
I'm the one you need to know that there is someone else
Just as this is now goodbye...
