I had a dream last night and it held me in it's arms i rode a train of light and it kept me safe from harm, it whispered "Oh, my love, oh my child, oh my dream, I will give you the light if you just give me the means on the Trans-Slambovian BiPolar Express..." And then that train rolled on into the fears I know too well To where my demons fly, yeah it rode right into hell And then that light shone out and that whistle blew And that great voice cried out, “Hey I’ve come for you!” Get on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express We’re on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express Some great love shot right through me, Untangled all those fears It acted like it always knew me, It said, “Oh my child I’m always here” And then I awoke into this world that we live in It all seemed a joke, and its logic wearing thin, So I said, “Hey come back, let’s make it end and let’s begin And if you help me out I will help you in” On the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express We’re on a Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express Get on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express We’re on a Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express Get on the Trans-Slambovian Bi-Polar Express

I’m very happy now I don’t know what has made it so I’m very happy now And while I am I think I’ll go I wish the best for you I wish the same for who you choose I know you’re not for me Was easier for you to see That’s right! I’m very happy now I’m finally free of trying to try To make our love work out For making truth out of a lie I know you’re not for me Was easier for you to see Was blinded by the hope I thought I saw you saw in me That’s right! Dig a dum dum da da Dum da dum da da Dum da dum da da da da da Dig a dum dum da da Dum da dum da da Dum da dum da da da da da I’m very happy now I haven’t felt this way in years I’m very happy now This moment’s just not right for tears So if you see me cry It’s kinda like the rain you see There really is no why There’s not a bit of pain in me Oh no! Let’s go! Dig a dum dum da da Dum da dum da da Dum da dum da da da da da Dig a dum dum da da Dum da dum da da Dum da dum da da da da da Da da dum dum da da Dum da dum da da Dum da dum da da dum dum da etc

So many layers and concept conveyers And players who say things I don't understand Walls and illusions and so much confusion Emotions and oceans that drowned all my plans And who is this girl, I don't know right now, But I love her, I love her, I love her I do Yeah who is this girl, I don't know right now, But I'm thinking of her in all that I do Our heads always bouncing, our hearts always pouncing Protecting, attacking what we don't reveal But we are connected past walls we've erected And armies that keep out the things that we feel And who is this girl, I don't know right now But I love her, I love her, I love her I do Yeah who is this girl, I don't know right now But I'm thinking of her in all that I do Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Someday we'll find it, 'cause love will remind it To let down defenses and breathe in the air And we will remember a kind of September That's filled with the things of which we really care And who is this girl, I don't know right now But I love her I love her I love her I do Yeah who is this girl, I don't know right now But I'm thinking of her I think that she's you Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah...

All the dead little people Do they go upstairs If they did their best If they said their prayers And when they go Can they see us Do they even care Help to guide our way Keep us from despair They're floating along to a spooky song In the moonlight, it's okay But so much is wrong and we know it's wrong Can we change it today Okay Okay Floating along to a spooky song In the moonlight, it's okay But so much is wrong and we know it's wrong Can we change it today Okay Okay All the dead little people Can I make it plain Though we’re all quite strange One thing’s still the same We need love, until we find it Everything’s in pain ‘Til we get that right Things get so deranged And we’re floating along to a spooky song In the moonlight, it's okay But so much is wrong and we know it's wrong And we can we change it today It’s okay It’s okay All the dead little people Do they go upstairs If they did their best If they said their prayers?

Windmills 05:35
When I was young I called your name Across the moors, across the plains And we would sit and have some tea We talked of things we hoped to see To keep our newborn country free From things that hold the dreamers down We spoke of windmills in the night Against the black and starry sky And all the people skated by La la la The weight of greed came crashing down Affecting all in every town It somehow was our price to pay The criminals were given bail While all the victims went to jail Was this the way to shift the power We dreamed of windmills in the night Against the black and starry sky And all the people skated by Religions terrorized the world The biggest countries let unfurl Their sneaky ways to take control The ‘isms of another time That never let a natural rhyme Or reason guide us to those dreams I dreamed of windmills in the night Against the black and starry sky And all the people skated by into another world The coldest winter on the land Our newborn country had a plan To make these worries float away We built some windmills in the night Against the dark and hopeless sky As we the people skated by Into a brand new world of light

Oh I’ve seen a million patterns that I don’t understand A million visions for the child of man Up above my head In dreams you’re always seeing things just out of control You want to fly upon the wings of your soul Up above my head And I’ve seen the wind-tail lashes, lighting flashes, morning changing its hue For you ‘Cause up where the birds are flying, clouds are crying, everything becomes new For you And I’ve seen the red-tailed lashes, finger flashes, people fading from view For you ‘Cause up where the birds are flying, clouds are crying, everything becomes new For you Oh I’ve seen a million patterns that I can’t understand A million visions for the child of man Up above my head Up above my head Up above my head Up above my head

When we were small, heard the call of warmth and love We saw that face in our sky way up above Yeah we had such ravenous ways for everything And when we opened our mouths we all could sing So turn on your ravenous ways Turn on your ravenous ways Join the show Fan your all-consuming flames Fan your all-consuming flames Help them grow Yeah we’re gonna aim for the sky, we don’t aim low And when we let this thing fly, the world will know We’ve turned on our ravenous ways Turned on our ravenous ways (That’s right) Yeah we had such ravenous ways for everything And when we opened our mouths we all could sing So turn on your ravenous ways Turn on your ravenous ways Turn on your ravenous ways Join the show Fan your all-consuming flames Fan your all-consuming flames Help them grow Yeah we’re gonna aim for the sky, we don’t aim low And when we let this thing fly, the world will know We’ve turned on our ravenous ways We’ve turned on our ravenous ways We’ve turned on our ravenous ways We’ve turned on our ravenous ways (That’s right) When we were small, heard the call of warmth and love

Northern Sea 04:37
I sailed away from the northern shoreline Out to the Northern Sea I sailed away to a world before time t'see what I should be Do you think about me my m'lady? Do you think about me? Do you think about me my m'lady? Do you think about me? I sailed away on the lonely ocean Just the wind and me I sailed away 'til I had the notion You and I should be If you think about me m'lady ’Cause I think about you yes I do and I dream about you m'lady Do you dream about me Spirit of God moved across the water Back when the will was free Said to that sea "don't ya think we ought be all we can be?" If you'll think about me m'lady I will think about you yes I will and I will dream about you m'lady if you dream about me And they danced all night and their heat brought light and the light brought day and the day brought sight and the things they saw made them say alright and all things were born on that wondrous night. When I return I will be a new man new as a man can be When I return can I be your true man if you'll think about me If you think about me m'lady ’cause I think about you yes I do and I dream about you m'lady do you dream about me If you think about me m'lady ’cause I think about you yes I do and I dream about you m'lady do you dream about me Do you think about me my m'lady? Do you think about me?
