We can see you in the dark Hiding in the trees, rebuilding parts When you get up off the ground You can see what you like when we show you around Oh Gigabot you've travelled many light years to be right here You were off the coast of Maine when you crashed into the sea We can grow old together and we'll watch you turn into rust And by the time that has happened our lives will return to dust You look just like tiny ants How on earth do you tell one another apart? Yet each one appears unique A chance encounter made you who you are Oh Gigabot you've travelled many light years to be right here You were off the coast of Maine when you crashed into the sea We can grow old together and we'll watch you turn into rust And by the time that has happened our lives will return to dust [mosh part]

What did I do? To get trapped In 3 dimensions And another: time Ahhh Try as we might, but we cannot escape your control We try to escape, but we stay and we do as we're told We shall rise From the dead To breathe life And clear our heads Ahhh Try as we might, but we cannot escape your control We try to escape, but we stay and we do as we're told

I know what I want to do Sit in front of people, tell them what to do I think I know what's best for them It is good for me, so it is good for you You want to go there and I want to take you there But I wasn't sleeping at the switch Many years have gone before Now I'm older, and I have found out more I have changed to fit the crowd I know I have the key, so let us go and see You want to go there and I want to take you there But I wasn't sleeping at the switch [middle] You want to go there, I want to take you there But I wasn't sleeping at the switch

Many years I met them all Playing out on tiny fields of green And if I told you, the tea and toast crew Like to lie outside and stare up at the sun It's the simple things you take Like final vinyl playing on the deck And if I told you, the turf to go to Open up the gate and let us in Everybody's got to be from somewhere As I look out of the window at the sky Everybody's got to be from somewhere But nothing lasts forever now Cross the ford and leave for distant lands And if I told you, that we're all old now There's plenty more in line to take the crown Everybody's got to be from somewhere As I look out of the window at the sky Everybody's got to be from somewhere As I look out of the window at the sky [acoustic mosh part] ahhhhh...

Information gives you power Retrieval charges by the hour Some is under lock and key Send the plumbers, we can see You can send us in the dark Open secrets kept apart Please don't tell another soul Don't record what you don't own In the end you find it hard to take But you had the breaks, and now they're gone Now that we can't help you any more You broke the law, and now we quit Ahhhh

Long time ago I saw some things I would not touch For what they bring You saw the goat I did not see Long time past By my maths It's now future Those things have passed You saw the goat I did not see

Sometimes the smaller things seem bigger close up Sometimes the deadly sins, they don't add up Look at the tiny village where you grew up Look at all the week's days, then add them up Why should I quit now? Just when I'm hating it Sometimes a minor argument can seem a big deal Why don't you ask small children to see how they feel Sometimes I'll write my thoughts down to see they make sense Sometimes you'll pay to read them, but only for pence Why should I quit now? Just when I'm hating it

I get up in the morning, to go to work after nine I'm playing my cards and doing my time One day I hope, that I'll be released Who was it that said that work sets you free? Getting up is never easy But time is not money, so I'm going to clock off To spend more time with the people who care Live slow and die old, if you see what I mean If we like it or not our livss will go on Getting up is never easy

How can I tell if my thoughts are all straight? It's been the same since I came through the gate I see you here and I think you're all right But you only seem to visit at night The management is getting right on my back I think the people are about to attack I see them coming and they're heading this way And yet I haven't even eaten for days I like to get out and go for a walk Please come and visit, I think we can talk Don't want to play cos I think I will choke I'm going to drown if I get in the moat I wish now I could just change my mind I had a set back, I was getting behind One day I'll leave then I'll never go back And now you're closing so there's no chance of that I don't know what is happening to me x 4 [middle] Repeat second verse and chorus

You are searching for what you might find The right notes that you want to hear in your mind Uncover some new sounds Straight from the earth, buried beneath the ground You can't see me You can't hear me I am your record selector I am your metal detector Try to make some for your self A home made recipe that comes right off the shelf DIY, it is the plan Look at me, I'm playing these chords with my hands (and I'm not in a band) You can't see me You can't hear me I am your record selector I am your metal detector [middle] [solo, of sorts]

Fill the bathtub, boiling hot Slip right in with what you've got Take a moment to try and think We all bear crosses, some not so big Consider me, spores in my head Climbing higher before I'm dead Driven insane by fungal prey Death grip takes my life away
