To Lunastus 07:25
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

Ionos Ballad 03:42
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....

Beast in Me 03:02
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

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...
