(It's the Eighties, So Where's Our) Rocket Packs Lyrics

It's the eighties
It's the eighties so where's our rocket packs
It's the eighties so where's our rocket packs?
Go anywhere, we strap them on our backs
1. (It's the eighties so where's our rocket packs?)
I thought by now I'd walk the moon
And ride a car without no tires
And have a robot run the vacuum
And date a girl made out of wires
No thing's don't change that much, do they?
We are still out of touch, by now we should discover
Just how to love each other, like Klattus' robot man
Your looks have killed again

2. (It's the eighties so where's our rocket packs?)
I thought by now we'd live in space
And eat a pill instead of dinner
And wear a gas mask on our face a President of female gender
Though progress marches on, (new day)
Our troubles will grow strong
And my expectancies, become my fantasies
You turn my blood to sand, the earth stands still again

My hopes are running low
things moving much too slow
No space men up above
And we're still so very far from love

3. (It's the eighties so where's our rocket packs?)
I thought by now we'd build a dome
Around the world, control the weather
In every house, a picture phone; communicate a little better
But some things never change (replay!)
You are still acting strange
No way that I can see, this way we will be free
La la la la la la,la la la la la 7,6,5,4,3,2,1 Lift off!

(It's the eighties so where's our rocket packs?)
Repeat 1, 2, 3
(It's the eighties)

As the World Turns Lyrics

I'm checkin' out, checking on a late night flight
LAX a horror show
Still I'd rather be here sweatin' out another take-off
Than living in the valley below
And I never get comfort in the earth or sky
It's my belief they're not my home
The world spins one way, but I go another
Against the grain, one often stands alone

1: As the world turns, it slaps me hard
As the world turns, it tells me I'm weak
As the world turns, I drop my guard
As the world turns, I turn the other cheek
I sing, Hey oh, slaps me hard,
Hey oh, slaps me hard,
Hey oh, slaps me hard,
I put it all together in the exercise yard
Dreams that die too easy in the vengeance of time
Some values given up for others
And this, I think, is the essence of our tragedy:
Our fallenness, our bond with one another
And you always hear about it in the evening news
You get it in the morning paper
But if you think it's always gonna be this way
I think it's gonna change, much sooner than later

Repeat 1

Many people wanting the elixir of youth
Through defeats and through disasters
Stifling the only thing that changes it all --
Love is what I'm going after
Achievements always falling into yesterday
I'm a pupil in an Intro class
New cars, travels, love affairs cannot provide
The way out of life's iron cast

Repeat 1

Dance Stop Lyrics

'Dance Stop' instructions: You may dance any dance that you desire, but in the course of the song when the word STOP! is shouted and the music stops you must FREEZE in whatever position you are in at that moment. In the song you will then hear the crowd voices escalating. Resume dancing again when you hear the word DANCE shouted and the music resumes. Have fun!!!

DANCE STOP!!!

1: Well, tell me please how love can be
With a kick / snare giving you a fantasy
(Ain't no future far as I can see)

If I could dance, I might agree
I said

2: Dance....stop
Dance....stop
I can't stop, dance stop, can't stop, dance stop
STOP!!!

(aaaaaaaahhhhhh...DANCE!!!)
3: Can't stop baby (DANCE STOP)
Don't mean maybe (DANCE STOP)
Can't stop baby (DANCE STOP)
Don't mean maybe
DANCE STOP! DANCE DROP! DANCE ROCK!
CAN'T STOP! WOOOOOOOOO!!!
Contortionists are caught up in the cameras eye
The music explodes and the bodies fly
They're rating it a ten before they drop and die
IT HAD A GOOD BEAT! was their very last cry

Repeat 2

(brrrrriiiiiiidge!)

Rock n' rollin' feels better then bowling
Bowling' feels better when the ball is rollin'
Bombs explodin' get the blood to flowin'
So bowl me over cos' my fear is growing'

Repeat 1, 2, 3 and 2

(mmmmmmmmm DANCE!!!) 3

STOP!!!

Home Permanent Lyrics

What I believe, is in my fashion
Clothes make the man, here in my passion
Gonna stand my ground, for all the world to see
Look up and notice me, my hair points to the sky
The place I want to be

Home permanent
Home permanent
Home... permanently

I drive my car, it is a witness
My license plate, it states my business
Gonna drive my car, for all the world to see
They pull up side of me, my hair hair points to the sky
The place I want to be

Home permanent
Home permanent
Home... permanently

I gave a toy top to my little brother
It says to Spin from sin
And to my mother, I gave a recipe book
It's like no other
Now she makes chocolate Bibles -
A witness to my unsaved father
Aaah.........doot, doot...

I dreamed I owned, a T.V. station
Am number one, across the nation
And there I am, for all the world to see
They take the hat off me, my hair points to the sky
The place I want to be

Home permanent
Home permanent
Home... permanently
Home permanent
Home permanent
Home... permanently

It's Sick Lyrics

Hey!
We cannot sense, we cannot know
What they're going through over there
Bodies dropping in the snow
Russians marching everywhere
It's history that cannot be
Felt by tiny souls
Inside this chest beats a plastic heart
And pleasure is it's goal

1. It's sick, and I got it on my TV
It's sick, when I don't feel a thing
It's sick, and I get a little queasy
When somebody tells me it's only a game (IT'S SICK)
The black man, he knows the score
He's tied to shores so strange and foreign
Like bombs of war that scar the western front
A sense of history leaves his heart in ruins

We cannot sense, we cannot know
What he's going through today
Men still burn crosses on the knoll
And still drag his weary soul away

Repeat 1

Our trial is which car to buy
Temptation is that extra desert
In the land of orange juice
You're better off with the right kind of shirt

But take away the naivete
Expose the sources of our fears
We'll run to missiles if we're pushed that far
Proceed to blow it all away!

Repeat 1

Live and Let Live Lyrics

1: 'Oh well, live and let live'
Your indifference forms my impression of living
But when you take on an interest in me,
Make an investment in me,
I ask your motive
You want much more than I'm giving

2: Oh no, I've got a broken heart
(We're so sorry but we gotta run)
Oh no, I'm falling apart
While you keep on floating
Up, and up, and up, and up, and up
'Oh well, live and let live'
A sign post leading all seekers in the wrong direction
You're living in a fantasy,
Feeding on a memory
But give me something
So when I feel nothing,
I still go on

Oh no, it's crying time
(We're so sorry, but we've got no tears)
Oh no, I'm down the line
While you keep on floating
Up, and up, and up, and up, and up
I'm longing for a land not assigned to me by birth
I'm holding close to me the life amid the curse
The life amid the curse

Repeat 2, 1

I'm longing for another world (hold on, hold on)
I'm crying fro your tenderness (all gone, all gone)

She's All Heart Lyrics

Spoken:
She says I complicate things
I say she over simplifies everything
But either way, I still believe we need each other

My longing:
Not to be a god or hero, but to change
Into a tree that grows for ages
Hurting no one
When I told her this
She could not see at all

1: She's all heart I know
She's all heart and
Souls that never touch
Never know how very much
They are one heart
My longing:
To hold the hand of someone long ago
Who passed away, a memory
No sorrow
It's a wonder that
She could not see at all

Repeat 1

She said You need not cry
I said Please tell me why
We say good-bye

Repeat 1

My longing:
To be brave until the end of all my days
At the neighing of the red horse,
Fearing nothing
When I break down COs of this
She sees no tears

Repeat 1

Two souls that will not touch
Can't see that they are one heart (She's all heart)
Two souls that will not touch
Can't see that they are one heart (She's all heart)

The Incredible Shrinking Man Lyrics

Look out your window
Here comes a bomb
The dogs of war
Drop it on your lawn

Life's hysterical
You're holding on the best you can
You're incredible
Incredible shrinking man
These fifty foot women
Keep slappin' your face
Machines remind you
That you can be replaced

How regrettable
Can't tear it down and start again
You're incredible
Incredible shrinking man
The clergy dresses you in tights and cape
And so the pressures on to make no mistake
In truth, there is no way that you won't break
You're gonna fall
You're much too small

From wells of power
You take a drink
You drown in it
It's bigger than you think

A world accountable -
Among the stars a grain of sand
You're incredible
Incredible shrinking man

Travelog Lyrics

This river channels out to my private shore
My boat's a magic couch on remote control
Confused, I now consult my jungle guide
Departure times, best bets, and four stars that shine
As I...

Bask in the blue light
Of my...
Travelog
I laugh, I cry, I space each half an hour
Rerun sweet memories of days gone by
I'm given sixty seconds to catch my breath again
To me you sell your vision

Here in my blue light
Of my...
Travelog
Death on the battlefield, through flood and fire
I navigate my ship to worlds unknown
A black robed man now greets me 'neath southern skies
To him I make confession, from me he takes collection

Lost in the blue light
Found in the blue light
Here in the blue light
Of my...
Travelog

When Worlds Collide Lyrics

1: Stay my love
Here in my arms
Let me say
I love you

Then sleep a while
Dream your dreams
Soon I will take you far away
From where the night threatens the day and

2: Worlds collide
I'm on your side
When worlds collide
I'm on your side
See my face
Hear my voice
I am real
And you are mine

When shadows fall
When lovers mourn
And you fight your darkest tendencies
I promise to hold you close to me when

Repeat 2

Until we're together, beyond other worlds
And you're free from the pain and fear
I'll place this light in your heart
If you'll keep it burning
While this world is turning,
Soon it will banish the dark

Repeat 1, 2

William Blake Lyrics

Tyger, tyger burning bright
In deep forests of the night
And little lamb you are the light
That is burning in one Child tonight

1: Who felt it so?
Who wrote it down?
Who lifts my soul?
Who wears the crown?
2: Sleep, William Blake
All is well
There's a marriage up in heaven tonight
There's a fire in hell

3: You were not mad
I know time will tell
William Blake
The wild wind's weeping, the night grows cold
The child is sleeping, the man grows old
The seed is dying, the child unfolds
And he walks upon the streets of gold

Who is the child?
Who is the man?
Who makes me smile?
Who loves the lamb?
Repeat 2 and 3

Sighing lovers sleep and dream
Upon the wind the music floats
The piper pipes at gates of dawn
And draws us on to starry boats

Repeat 1, 2 and 3
