Wasteland Man A superb combination of two things I love... SciFi and synthpop. The song "Elliott" holds a place near and dear to my heart. Favorite track: Elliott.

Traveler 03:07
I was riding on the pulse of a quasar And dancing to the funky beat of a cosmic string, feelin' space-time sing I heard the song of your engines, pulled me from afar I came down to learn of you, will you teach me? Chorus, introduce me I have no name, you can call me Traveler I live between energy and matter You can find me in a warp field in the stars If you believe in me we'll open up the universe Found one who understands the nature of nature It's not a conscious thing, it's the way we move the waking dream It's for the likes of you that I travel So open your mind to me and make believe a path home I have no name, you can call me Traveler I live between energy and matter You can find me in a warp field in the stars If you believe in me we'll travel far

Elliott 03:21
Came in the night Spaceship flight to this world We're a curious kind Don't want to fight Hide from sight Did not mean to be left behind Though stranded here Not to fear Met a boy who is like in mind I've traveled far Seen the stars Such a friend is rare to find Elliott I feel your pain Dial up And phone home again Some might think strange Would not change You're my love, you're my guardian Though I must leave Believe In this world you're my greatest friend Elliott I feel your pain Dial up And phone home again

I found myself in the asteroid field With the empire on my tail Nothing to guide me but my copilot's roar Still I know we will prevail I'm flying solo, here I go I fell in love in the asteroid field In the belly of the whale Though he's a scoundrel and the odds say we'll fail I know we will prevail I kissed a princess today Convinced a princess today I'm flying solo, here I go

Cosmic Child 03:00
I am a cosmic child I was born inside a star On the outside of the oort cloud I see your face Through a thousand crowds I'll find you I'll comb through all the human race I know what I'm looking for 'cause I found it And it's you Feel never doubt I will find you where you are I don't need my eyes to seek you out I remember how you feel From the time that we were stardust We chose before we turned the wheel I know what I'm looking for 'cause I found it And it's you There's a million miles between us A million ways to come back to me I know what I'm looking for 'cause I found it And it's you

I watch the setting sun From my moisture farm I watch the second one And dream of warring stars I sow these desert fields My vaporators hum To reap a salient yield I've honed the bluest thumb Someday I will be someone I'll stay till season's end With promises intact One last harvest then I'll leave and not look back It's my life and I will take it back

Ceti Alpha V 03:11
Cold days and blistering nights As turn of the world unwinds You left me James, you killed my wife And I will have your life This is Ceti Alpha V Do you remember I'm alive? Stuck here on Ceti Alpha V You stranded me, a deep space seed A forgotten cowards deed With all my hate, I'll stab at thee Your death will bring me peace This is Ceti Alpha V Find me on Ceti Alpha V I will wait and writhe Here on Ceti Alpha V When you return you'll die Here on Ceti Alpha V

Saturn 03:10
I want your love You've got this pull, keeps me orbital Pull me closer The ice around you warms me up Hey Saturn, I want your rings around me Can you catch me? Made in stars I got this far steering towards your heart At perihelion I'll welcome you with open arms Hey Saturn, I want your rings around me Can you catch me? Hey Saturn, you wrap your rings around me Yeah you catch me The ice around you warms me up You hold me close, whisper love

Up in the clouds I float on history You got a timeline bro? It don't mean shit to me I got a way with winds, a temporal battery You wanna get out bro? You need a time machine Make up my own damn mind for when I want to be See me riding on a chroniton wave See me fireside in a post-world age Check your history, I'm on the page Check your future I'm a household name You're all I need, time machine Hey, McFly! Take me for a magic ride! Cruisin OUTATIME You're all I need, time machine

Timechild 03:16
In a time quite long ago lived a boy who's deeds are often told He devised this plan alone, to expediate the present be future thrown So he packed his winter clothes, dug a pocket in the mountain and froze in snow He awoke not far from here where the otters tried to twist his cunning ear Yes he proved too smart for them, so my brothers our alliance became his friend Timechild is on our side, would be prudent for the student of our steps to hide Great secret he'll provide Would you mind just sending me back? Though his motives weren't often clear, the device he desired was worthless here Tried to wail and he tried to moan and he tried to go home using the timephone So raise your hands and make some noise, cause the battle of the future was fought for toys It's just the way of boys Would you mind just sending me back? Find the time for sending me back And when I'm done, release me to my time When war is won, reverse this temporal crime I've seen this world and all that lies in store When battle comes, I hope the past is warned

Stairs don't work in space We float from place to place Not much to say, my crew they sleep The journey long, the past is gone Lost to relativity Sweet talk the computer A ticking clock talks back at me We turn them on with thoughts we've drawn We teach them well, our code a spell They do not see you and me as distinguishable We are just genes They turn us off One by one Until we are lost

Light Speed 03:03
Move on at lightspeed My engines are all I need I'm traveling to the edge Rode off on the edge of the sun Slingshot, we're the traveling ones No need to set course, we intuit one You gotta feel it Got to move on Rode off on the galaxy's edge Break through with an engines rev I've heard the strange tales of what lies ahead I gotta see it Got to move on at lightspeed My engines are all I need I'm traveling to the edge Rode off to the Dyson sphere Make friends with the creatures here They tell the strange tales of the gods they fear Yeah they believe it Got to move on Rode off to the starry sky Make words with the cosmos I believe in this place that is only mine Want you to see it Got to move on at lightspeed My engines are all I need We've got to move on at lightspeed My engines are all I need I'm traveling to the edge
