Part 1. Prelude

[instrumental]

Part 2. Astronauts Nightmare

"this is Robot 13 speaking
planet Earth is turning round"

although my mind is gently weeping
I know my hope is coming to an end

evil is in your heart now
disillusion is in your soul

oh my dear god can you really hear me?
if so, then please help me find a way

although my eyes are gently sleeping
I kow my mind is coming to an end

 

Part 3. Countenance

Part 6. The Dream Nebula (Part 1)

we searched the ocean
deep and wide
looking for our star

playing with the
sands of time
you and I
you and I

it's a dream

 

Part 7. The Dream Nebula (Part 2)

we searched the heavens
deep and wide
looking for a sign

playing with the universe
you and I

it's a dream
dream

 

Part 8. It's All In The Mind

my mind goes round like a roundabout
whistles and sings
darker than darkest night
sweeter than spring
my mind expands to a great degree
a feeling that must be free
all that's left's you and me
and you're gone

my mind expands to a great degree
a feeling that must be free
all that's left's you and me
and you're gone

 

Part 9. Burn Out My Eyes

where is my day?
where are my nights?
they're all gone to sleep
they all said goodnight
where are my days?
where are my nights?
won't you tell me?

very soon there's gonna come a day
when they're all gonna run away
leaving only lifeless forms of yesterday
you keep saying the time is almost here
but I know within my mind you only live in fear
now the sense that stops me going blind
makes me wish that I was drinking wine
leaving only lifeless forms that used to be my mind
destruction of the senses and the burning of my eyes

 

Part 10. Void Of Vision

once I understood what is life
sometimes it hurts me like a knife

I dug into the past
saw the things
had got to change
looked ahead
life is very strange
can't be dead
thoughs a-new
were coming to my head

start to turn in on myself
looped through in my own flesh

turned to keep
from screaming
at the glory and the terror
in what I saw
ice that formed around me
had to thaw
at the glory and the terror
in what I saw

 

Part 11. Pupil Of The Eye

a great shining eye
suspended in space
a great shining eye
shot rays through my face

making me one
with space and time
to sense in a pulse
of bright coloured sound

life is an illusion where you and me
infinity is reality

suddenly
I saw everything
there is to see
I was that eye!
sudden thoughts
pushed through my brain
was I blind?
or was I insane?
sudden thoughts
of ecstasy
were horrible
I saw it all
I felt it all
I lived it all
I understood it all
I was afraid!

 

Part 12. Look Inside Yourself

look with your own eyes
see with your own mind
look, it's all around
you can see it now
now

 

Part 13. Death of the Mind

although my eyes are gently weeping
I know my world is coming to an end
