The original cast headlines the show The papers praise and the papers - they sure know Just aimless notes from left to right the bleeding radiation of an angry mind It's my drums and your beat And never the twain shall meet Close encounters of the third kind Close encounters of the third kind Close encounters of the third kind all the time Some people had problem with grandpa John who could have kicked the shit out of them all But he couldn't be bothered less He answers to no-one and lives for himself Falling down from the tree of time when the strangers' worlds collide Close encounters of the third kind...
Here they come on their magic bus All those flyers in their hands They got ideals for every one of us Just wait until you hear their chant Fun and failure they both start out the same way Our lives are too good Lucky we have you so we can prey I was channel surfing just the other day Saw a man on the platform "Call this number, call it right away" he said sounding like a storm Seems like they might need some financial help there God knows where it goes It's funny how some people dare
Why do I go down to an underground garage at night I hear the condensation water drippin' from the pipes Screaming sound of the car wheels echoes off the concrete walls Even Superman does this on his free time and sometimes I just wish I had the powers of his kind I see the balloons on TV There's one for every lie they tell And everyone has their fingers crossed When the morning comes they will know who has lost We went from door to door, tried to get someone to speak But no-one said a word because of the powers that be We almost ran out of hope The more they had seen, the less they spoke Now tweedle-dees and tweedle-dums wait for the sun Soon everyone will know what they have done To keep the game good and clean the messengers have to be free And everyone…
Time was runnin' out through bullet holes in your town in the West They put you in charge, gave you guns and a shining star on your chest Flood over the gate How much can you take? They're all over your nerves when it's you who should be served When you hear the pound of the drums you'll find out who's your friend Be with those who won't turn on you and steal your gold in the end Flood…
Brand new love You think you never had it so good But a sword hangs right above you and I know that you see it too Still you think you can get away with this even if he's with someone else Well if you're so damn sharp watch out you won't cut yourself Trying to pull the devil by its nose again You should know by now you're not that good You're bound for trouble and you know how it's going to end You'll end up being the fool No bad deed goes unpunished in this town Everybody here just goes round and round and round And you'll find in front of you something you thought you left behind So you better quit your low down ways they'll gonna get you everytime Trying to pull the devil...
It's soon wintertime and the snow will cover our tracks All the birds fly to south but I see you coming back What a drag It's your own fault if you fall in love Try to be bold and see how the things really are Now it gets cold Find a new place where it's warm Anything goes as an excuse to jump into the flow But if you're not strong you'll be taken by the undertow No no no It's your own fault if you fall in love Try to be bold and see how stupid you are Now it gets cold Find a new place where it's warm
I felt a weight over me like I was on the bottom of the sea The troubles came in from the doors and windows but that's my own fault I suppose So I did some stuff I'm not that proud of You know everything I guess I can never pass your tests One more time and it's over I wish I hadn't heard that before But I know I'll continue as long as I don't get caught I know it might be hard to love a guy like me who's not always by your side who hurts you and makes you cry No matter how it is can I trust you on this? Keep the engine running I'll come back soon and hop in One more time and it's over...
Slipstream helps to gain the speed as he gives it a try and tries to overtake But it’s going to be hard Calculating all the chances while the other one makes up his own rules and believes in his God Two different ways of how to win Remember what happened at Estoril He was sitting in his car completely lost in thoughts without his helmet on you saw his face The Professor knew that there was something strange something in his friend had changed before the race He knew his life was on a string The lap number 6 changed everything
