Track Name: Evacuate
i had a dream
i was floating 'round in 0 gravity
when i fell into a wormhole
came out of REM a different animal

damages, damn this guy's got issues huh
let's grab an arm and suit him up

evacuate into a liquid state
let's divide the brain
and subtract the pain

i'm bathed in the light of the storm
the misty air never tasted sweeter
i'm reborn in the tropic warmth
my state of mind is the only season

damages, damn this guy's got issues huh
let's grab an arm and lift him up

evacuate to a liquid state
let's divide the brain
and subtract the pain

come on, come on, come on
get up, get up, get up, live it up

get on with it

evacuate to a mystic state
let's divide the brain
and subtract the pain

come on, come on, come on
get up, get up, get up, live it up
Track Name: Promenade
where has all the magic gone?
there used to be a charge in the air
now it's all but disappeared

in another time
in another place
we'd be hand in hand
down the promenade
like we're in a Monet

but here we are among these skyscrapers
and we don't know why we don't feel young anymore
what are we fighting for?

in another life
maybe we could smile
maybe we were foolish
but baby we had style
and we could get through this

baby we were great
and we had it made
and maybe it was crazy
but we told ourselves we'd make it thru
if we can laugh it's cool
who gives a damn about what other people do

cos we've got this
we got this
Track Name: Dancing Around the Fire
i don't want to think about
where things are going
but every time i look around me
creatures disappear
it's like we're doing nothing
but dancing 'round the fire
paying all the service fees
for things we don't need

while the ice recedes

i don't want to ask of you
something that you can't give
it seems your attention span
is not as wide as your bandwidth
i could come back in ten years time

i'm sure you'll still be freezing by the fire.

don't you worry about
the planet and the universe?
it needs your everything
or everything is lost
don't you worry that
your mind is too removed
to think about anyone
but yourself?

it's all a celebration
it's a shopping spree
a lot of masturbation
and that includes me
but i'm trying hard
to rip myself from the wall
pull the plug and live in the now

don't you worry about
the planet and the universe?
it needs your everything
or everything is lost
don't you worry that
your mind is too removed
to think about anyone
but yourself?

i don't ask for much
to respond to touch
but if you've gone numb
we better turn and run
you're a loaded gun

don't you worry about
tigers and chimpanzees
well they may not be here
to inspire your children
but who cares about
animals and silly trees
while there's still air to breathe
and money to make
and animals to trade
and forests to rape
a planet to save
Track Name: Fool's Gold
i get emotional when we slip
and i'm inconsolable
when we lose our grip
it's oh so unconscionable
how we live
and so unavoidable
how we are taken in by …

fools gold
we're safe in our roles
fools go
safe with the flow
we just don't know

I know we're fallible
yeah we all make mistakes
and we all can be shallow
i guess those are the breaks
well i'm already wounded
and so are you dear
is it all just illusion
born out of fear?

and fools gold
we're safe in our roles (we've nothing to show)
fools go
safe with the flow
we just don't know

have we arrived
at our last goodbye?
have we been wrong
chasing rainbows all along?

and fools gold
we've nothing to show
fools go
safe with the flow
we just don't know
