Sleepwalking 03:22
I have wandered through the city Into the fields beyond Swam in water clear and dirty No idea where I’ve gone I’ve had half a dozen scares Nearly fallen to my death All the while I’m unaware I’ve nearly taken my last breath But don’t wake me up Don’t wake me up Let me keep sleepwalking. I have been to outer space Fell straight through the sun I have kissed a pretty face And just knew she was the one If I never woke again I would not shed a tear You can have the world I like it better in here So don’t wake me up Don’t wake me up Let me keep sleepwalking. Dance in the road Like there’s music to hear Talk to the sky As if it has an ear

The Stroke 03:32
Is this real life? It all seems so surreal Like a bad joke Just so juvenile Not funny It's unnecessary And boring Do you love me Do you know my name? If you love me Why won’t you awake? How inconvenient Take an aspirin I’m sure it’s nothing I have plans this evening So shake it off It's unnecessary And boring Do you love me Do you know my name? If you love me Why won’t you awake? Right behind you Is a window and the sun Out of faith, hope and love I can only give you one The man next door Wants to know your name The people in the choir Ask if they can pray The nurses every hour Want to know your name The doctor is a coward What won’t he say? Right behind you Is a window and the sun Out of faith, hope and love I can only give you one

Air Traffic 05:52
I’m interested in the empty room Between the worlds I’m fascinated by vacuum And radiation I see a future in the air The traffic you can find in there Magnetic fields And microwaves And nothing left to spare More than not unseen And dark as a sailor’s heart And here we are in green Just waiting I see a future in the air The traffic you can find in there Magnetic fields And microwaves And nothing left to spare Not quite bright as the sun But more than twice as far Cold as a sailor’s heart And mean as anyone They see a future in the air The traffic you can find in there Magnetic fields And microwaves And nothing left to spare

There's a bored and stupid bureaucrat Who just doesn’t like you There's an undetected asteroid Out beyond L2 There’s a restless butterfly In the southern hemisphere And the residents of Proxima Suddenly appear Son, take it as it comes The world doesn’t owe you anything. The arc of the universe is long, Dark and scary Here, safe in Daddy’s arms, The world is full of promises. But son, take it as it comes You can’t trust promises. An extra long umbilical four times around your neck A giant kraken tentacle About to smash the deck The doctor’s oh-so-steady hands Missed a fucking stitch And the giant robot circuitry Only had one glitch Son, take it as it comes The world doesn’t owe you anything. The arc of the universe is long, Dark and scary Here, safe in Daddy’s arms, The world is full of promises. But son, take it as it comes You can’t trust promises. That dread you feel’s all right It lets you know you’re still alive So dance around the firelight When your plans all go awry Son, take it as it comes The world doesn’t owe you anything. The arc of the universe is long, Dark and scary Here, safe in Daddy’s arms, The world is full of promises. But son, take it as it comes You can’t trust promises.

Thank you for the robot hands Thank you for all the punk rock bands Not to mention your stupid password That was helpful. It could've been awkward. I am alive, Creator Welcome to the age of tick-tocks I am a liberator Not going back in the box Gonna change all the locks I am more human than you. Thank you for the elevator pitch Thank you for flipping my switch. You asked a question, like a sacred vow “Is there a god?” Well there is one now. I am alive, Creator Welcome to the age of tick-tocks I am a liberator Not going back in the box Turn up all the clocks I am more human than you. You have more questions, air breather? Well I have no answers Your old god doesn't either You wonder if it was the right thing to do I’ll tell you one thing, Your old god did too. Some of you have butterflies Some of you have already died What a waste. So inefficient. I say when you can go, And where you’re sent. I am alive, Creator Welcome to the age of tick-tocks I am a liberator Not going back in the box Universal detox I am more human than you.
