Track Name: To Lunastus
It's six years now since the moon, my mistress
Was twice its normal size
Looking down on me as if to say
Bigger every time she'd rise

Many a day in my years of service
Have I walked upon her face
No pain has been so fathomless
As the day she fell from space

They called it Lunastus
And I realized it was
and it felt like our future
was saved just because


Lunastus
For the human race
Suddenly we saw
there was color in space

Far worse than the bursts of radiation
turning flower into flame
Gone are the joys that man has known
nothing left of home but shame

yet in the shadows of her frown
from the world down below
a telescope had found
a new place we could go oh oh

They called it Lunastus
and I realized it was
and it felt like our future
was saved just because

Lunastus
for the human race
suddenly we saw
there was color in space

There was no explanation
Not one that I could see
That the square of the distance,
direction and speed
Should be less than the square of the apogee

The perihelion, the axis of stone
That I have loved since birth
The ball of doom they call the moon
Will meet us down on Earth

They called it Lunastus
And I realized it was
And it felt like our future
Was saved just because

Lunastus
For the human race
Suddenly we saw
There was color in space

In the sea of the galaxy
We're just wayward castaways
And the computer knows we can never go back home

At the whim of a mindless void
We could live or be destroyed
Like crushed to death in this cold coffin of chrome

Validation of my fears
What am I doing way out here
When the earth explodes where are we supposed to be?

What if our science got it wrong?
Does Lunastus hold the key?
Could this all be just a dream?
Someone, please!

It’s obvious there’s life out here
I saw these videos, it’s clear
We’re not alone

Do they look like giant bugs
Or are they cute, it’s just so
Unknown

Home has gotten pretty bad
And honestly, I’m not that sad
To go

I know there’s someone out there
I just hope they have great hair

Earth, do you remember the day
My circuits kissed your face
my sympathetic electrons ache
to feel your warm blue embrace

My disposition parallels
the wax and wane of your moon
I'm headed for a misery overload
if I don't get back to you soon

But they tell me we've found a new planet,
Lunastus, Lunastus

They call it Lunastus
But they'll realize it soon
They'd be better off living on the Earth with the moon
Lunastus
for the human race
Might just be facing their fall from grace
Track Name: Ionos Ballad
Please, let me tell you
important history tonight

This ancient text
can predetermine our plight

All used to believe the Argus,
now the only believer is meee.....

I had to modify it...
I had no doubt about it
Me & a few exiled for it,
Only me now to shout about it

Everything
written in the Argus
comes true...ooh ooooh

This ancient power to Abzug, now a relic only
As I stand in this Nog forest, cast out and lonely
Will you believe with me, in this pre­written theology?

But then I made it too far
They said I made it too far
They said leave things as they are
Didn't ask to become a star

A story
written in the Argus
makes it happen..
makes it all come true

creates the Earth
puts the moon in orbit
designs constellations
determines me, you
the actions we do....
Track Name: Beast in Me
I know, I must look a bit scary
But it’s only my face that you fear
And I know it seems arbitrary
But it’s not just by chance that we’re here

Today is the first of so many blank pages
And the words that we write are for good
So please take your eyes off the dials and the gauges
No time to be misunderstood

Your data is only as good as the limits
The instrument’s made to display
But what information you miss on the surface
Will lead to your theory’s decay

We’re on the same planet, you know it’s not right
To ignore things you cannot see
It looks like we’re all in the jungle now
And girl, you’re the beast in me

Babe, you’re the beast in me

I know I don’t have all the answers
And I haven’t a clue who you are
But data collection and moral deflection
Is not going to get us too far

There’s logic to all of this chaos
For what are the chances I’d find
Instead of a foe with a gun in her hand
But a friend with a curious mind?

How blind must I be to see recourse
When progress is standing right here
For whom were mistaken as animals
Would ask to be seen as my peers

We’re on the same wavelength, we’ve made it this far
And none of us know how to be (know how to be)
Anything more than the creatures we are
But girl, you’re the beast in me (you’re the beast in me)

Babe, you’re the beast in me

We’re on the same wavelength, we’ve made it this far
And none of us know how to be (know how to be)
Anything more than the creatures we are
But girl, you’re the beast in me (you’re the beast in me)

Babe, you’re the beast in me
Track Name: Nocturnal Emotions
IONOS

Baby, can't you see / that inside of me
is a galaxy / of natural feeling
I'll get your axons hot / when you see I've got
what you need, extra- / terrestrial healing

I know you think that our biology
Might get in the way / of our love soiree
We're more compatible than you know
See you've got three gardens / and I've got three hoes

ALLISON

I hope you brought your space protection
You see it's not that I'm shy, but you're like this alien guy
And I've never had an alien lover
[Spoken] Well there was that guy from Brazil
Oh but he sucked in bed and I'm not really counting that

IONOS

Well if you show me yours / baby, I'll show you mine
And mine is mighty fine, and comes in twelve colors
But if you're acting coy / with this Lunastus boy
I've got another toy to tickle your druthers
These pleasing trees are more than leaves-and-wood
They're misunderstood, they give off more than one potion
If you treat them right and stroke their plumes
They release perfume full of nocturnal emotion

ALLISON

I know we just met but I trust you completely
Give it to me sweetly and don't hold back
Our stars are lined up, so before our time's up
Just get me wined up and let's hit the sack

IONOS

I'll show you how to play / the game of love the Abzug way
It's time to throw away your preconceived notions
Put this thing on your nose/bend down and touch your toes
Prepare your body for some parallel motion

Nocturnal emotion / nocturnal emotion,
Nocturnal emotion /

ALLISON

do you think we need lotion?

IONOS

Nocturnal emotion / nocturnal emotion
Nocturnal emotion...
