Space Summit - Life This Way

I'm Electric

As he sat among the trees
The Moscow moon in the streets
The Master had a choice
Should he give this King a voice?

A séance held the crowd
Money falling on the ground

See her passions win the day
Magicians, redheads, cats at play, obey!

I'm electric with your magic
I'm transforming back to morning, yeah

At the ball she hosts the dead
Learning spells, calling maids who fled

Catch the moon and fly away, hey
Leave the rooftops in your wake, all day

I'm electric with your magic
I'm transforming back to morning
I'm dynamic, it's not tragic
I'm revolving into dawning, yeah

To paradise they would walk
The Master and Margarita talk

 

Life This Way

I've been thinking
I've been wandering
I've been moving
I've been calling
All the time
Through the rhymes

I've been traveling
I've been flying
I've been dreaming
I've been crying
Through the waves
In the caves

Give me one more chance together
Give me one more day
Give me one more chance to better
Live my life this way

I've been chanting
I've been writing
I've been talking
I've been wandering (I've been wondering)
All the days
Through the maze

I've been calling
I've been sending
I've been giving
I've been taking
All the nights
Through the lights

Give me one more chance together
Give me one more day
Give me one more chance to better
Make my life this way, hey

Give me one more chance together
Give me one more day
Give me one more chance to better
Make my life this way

Give me one more chance together (give me one)
Give me one more day (give me one)
Give me one more chance to better (give me one)
Make my life this way, hey

I've been thinking
I've been wandering
I've been moving
I've been calling
All the time
Through the rhymes

 

Ancient Towers

If there was a time in the days before my mind
If there was a wave singing in a cave
Silence rings from every mountaintop
Echoes fill with the valleys below

The ancient towers

Call me on the line I will give you time
Who invented gold deep beneath the cold?
Echoing church bells to the marketplace
Mexican skulls for the Day of the Dead

As she slept the Virgin Mary
Floated into view and then she
Glowed with summer clicking her red shoes
In the sky the ancient ladies
Told her what to do and then she
Went upstairs and floated to the moon

The ancient towers

Hills are calling from the rooftops and
Church bells chiming in mountains below
Ancient cities with hidden passageways
Desert lines glowing spacemen and snow

The ancient towers

Can I take you there, to the ancient fair?

 

Queen Elizabeth's Keys

Shuffling through a High Street portico
Walking through a wide screen in Church Row
She can't take the Underground
She can walk on air
We will see her in Trafalgar Square

She can melt the colors in a kiln
Saw her in St James Street in a film
Research at the library
Mail it to the Queen
Paint the postbox red on Richmond Green

Stamps and coins, she looks quite pretty
Primrose Hill or in the City
Pretty little steeples in a row
I can hold the solar panel
She will wait in flowery castles
Drawbridge will stay open as she glows

Mason's Yard in shadows, people talk
Found her in the bathhouse in Flask Walk
Dream her in the gallery
Where we are holding hands
Let's meet in the café by the Strand

She went up to Hampstead for her health
I was going to woo her with my wealth
I snuck up to Camden Town
To watch her in the breeze
But all I got was Queen Elizabeth's Keys

Stamps and coins, she looks quite pretty
Primrose Hill or in the City
Pretty little steeples in a row
I can hold the solar panel
She will wait in flowery castles
Drawbridge will stay open as she glows

Went to Windsor Castle for some gin
Her footmen signaled me to come right in
As rain bounced off the Curfew Tower
Exchanging pleasantries
Our dreams were mixing up by small degrees

 

Deep Paisley Underground

If you say that I'm an arrow
Pointing to the town at dawn
Waiting for the mountains to protect us
From the sandstorms and the pawns

If you leave me here, on my own
I will take you to the deep paisley underground

You moved out amidst the crumbling of an empire
On the old silk road where blue and red and green and gold were
Weaving patterns on the women and the soldiers
And the artists and the secret signs across the ocean

If you leave me here, on my own
I will take you to the deep paisley underground

Now the decades have unfolded
From the West Coast to the East
Shifting continents and magnetic hemispheres and
Chiming guitars and the weaving of seas

If you leave me here, on my own
I will take you to the deep paisley underground

 

Fold With The Light

Sunlight breaking through the moonlight
Daylight floating through my dream night
If it is gray, if it is green
Well you know it's not my scene baby
I'll fold in with the light

I don't (I don't) know where the sky ends
I don't (I don't) know where I've been
I don't know what I'm doing here at all baby
You know I've got to fly to the sky
And catch a ship to dreamtime

And you know I want you baby to glow
And you know I need you baby to grow
And the moon's unfolding just out of sight
Into a blinding jet stream lights up the night

Mountains floating by the curtains
Captains taking my mind on a flight
Doorways to a psychedelic highway
Motors away into the gray

Sunlight breaking through the moonlight
Daylight floating through my dream night
If it is gray, if it is green
Well you know it's not my scene baby
I'll fold in with the light

 

Marlowe

Marlowe - what is that L.A. sound?
Marlowe - why don't you leave this town?

Feelings on your sleeve won't leave a mark on you
Don't tell it to the girls in town
Hollow - everything up is down

You were from a different age
Echoes up from the tragic stage

Marlowe - where did you get your code?
Marlowe - why was the gift bestowed?

Writing, speaking till sundown
Silently working for The Crown

Pouring out Four Roses, your other half composes
Words just seem to walk downtown to hang around

Coffee, shadows, sun goes down
Coffee, shadows, all around

You were from a different age
Echoes up from Elizabethan stage

Cambridge, London, it was on
Fame called, you were here then gone

 

The Four Horses Of Venice

Sitting in the bottom of a well
Dreaming up the world
Twice a day
Hey, hey, hey
Sunlight it unfurled

Forced into cartography
In Inner Mongolia
The outer edge of universes
Seems to control ya

She imagines maps on the periodic table
And invented modernism from my kitchen table

Glass, diamonds, multiple facets
Sand, carbon, origami magnets

She works in green marble walls
And lives in crystal ice
Manipulating the ivory in my crumbling dice
A blue cup of caffeine launches multiple screens

A psychedelic balloon
A herringbone sea

Toy soldiers, dancing nurses of light
Planetariums and ambient jet flights

The sun touches down from the sky
Horizon magnetizes yellow so high
Dressing for the secret agents' ball
The Four Horses of Venice oversee all
The Four Horses of Venice oversee all

 

Dome Of Light

Dreaming up from mountainsides
Etching patterns in her mind
Formosa brought the night
Four years, she made it bright
Italian dreams, optic seams
In Berlin, she came alive
To the Dome of Light

Every train must first arrive
For a kaleidoscopic ride
Take her home
Disconnect the phone
The subtropics are alive
Switch into overdrive
To the Dome of Light

Take the Blue or the Red Line
Beating hearts, stages of life
Politics, astronomy
Earth and light, fire and sea
Turning point, '79
Echoes hope, the cathedral shines
To the Dome of Light

 

If You Believe

If you believe
If you believe
If you believe
If you believe
Well, I know
Yes, I know

The sun never sets
It's only folding
A permanent press
A fireball patrol wing

But the vaults
Of Zürich know
And the faults
Of the Holy Roman ice floe

The eagle has eyes
To weave through the snowstorm
The candles can fly
They light up the ocean

They will meet
On top of the Andes
And drummers and drones
Will hand out candies

If you believe
If you believe
If you believe
If you believe
Well, I know
Yes, I know
