Rocket To The Moon

Some days — I feel so far away
I move so fast
To be with you at last
Rocket to the moon
I'm coming for you soon
Rocket to the moon
I'm coming for you soon

Tonight — I'll make it home alright
To be with you
You know what we can do
Yeah we'll rocket to the moon
I'm coming for you soon
Rocket to the moon
I'm coming for you soon
Rocket to the moon
I'm coming for you, for you soon

Some days — I feel so far away
Tonight — I'll make it home alright
And we'll rocket to the moon
I'm coming for you soon
Rocket to the moon
I'm coming for you soon
Rocket to the moon
I'm coming for you soon
Rocket to the moon
I'm coming for you, for you, for you soon

Now

Now is now
Now is the present time
Now is everything
Now is here
Now is not the future or the past

Now is not the future or the past
Now is now
Now is now

Black Swan

Black swan — out of the blue sky
Snowblind the morning sun
Black swan — makes a big wave
Permanent change oh yeah it's come

You know it killed the dinosaurs
You know it started World War Three
You know it messed up my computer
And took away my MTV
Over the event horizon
Lies a future you can't see
Get ready — for the singularity

Black swan — no red light flashing
The needle runs right off the chart
Black swan — the damage done now
Too late to run too late to start

Today's the day the wall comes down
Tonight's the rise of the machine
Move me to a window seat
I'll show you what I mean
Imagine no imagining
How bright the brave new world will be
Get ready — for the singularity

And as you learn the waves you ride
And come to know there's nothing to decide
And as nothing ever really ends
Look out! Here come that change again

Black swan — the circle closing
Watching the watchmen watching you
Black swan — not fade away now
The other side is breaking thru

Today's the day the wall comes down
Tonight's the rise of the machine
Move me to a window seat
I'll show you what I mean
Imagine no imagining
How white my shirts could be
Get ready — for the singularity

--  John Szinger, 2012


Is It Safe to Go Outside?

Is it safe to go outside?
Is it time to count up all the flowers growing?
Is it safe to feel the sunshine
Like a long-lost friend returning?
Is it OK to roll the windows down?
Take a ride, I want to feel the wind in my face
Blood flowing in my veins

Is it safe to go outside, you know I try to be strong
But the winter's been too long
Is it safe to go outside, I hope the forecast isn't wrong
You know this has to be the day

Is it safe to take myself to the park?
Blame it on my alter-ego
It's a game of bocce for my soul
Knock 'em down and keep them rolling
What a shame it would have been
To pass you by and not to see the smile on your
Face... shine... wait...
There's blood flowing in my veins

Is it safe to go outside, you know I try to be strong
But the winter's been too long
Is it safe to go outside, I hope the forecast isn't wrong
You know this has to be the day
There's blood flowing in my veins
There's blood flowing in my veins
There's blood flowing in my veins

Your Dancing Shoes

Bb   Eb | C7   F7 | Bb   Eb | C7   Bb |
Bb   Eb | D7   G7 | Eb   C7 | F7   Bb

Put on your dancin' shoes
Don't wanna hear about no bad news
I spent my nine to five just payin' dues
So put on your dancing shoes

Lay down your safety vest
Kick off your working boots and give it a rest
Don't wanna hear about what's worse or best
Just wanna see you in that party dress

I loosen up my power tie
Put down my thinking cap and let it all slide
Been payin' dues yeah since the nine to five
Now all I wanna do is catch your eye

So put on your dancin' shoes
Ain't got time tonight to sing the blues
Yeah spent my nine to five just payin' dues
So put on your dancin' shoes

(horn break)

Now your decoding ring
And your utility belt don't mean thing
My smoking jacket and my fancy pants
Now all I wanna do is see you dance

So put on your dancin' shoes
Don't wanna hear about bout no bad news
Ain't got time tonight to sing them blues
Just put on your dancin' shoes
Yeah put on your dancin' shoes

(horn break and out)

To Be a Rock

Man of steel man of stone
But what man can stand alone?
And even as you love them too
The ones you love will one day look to you
Man of motion holding fast
But what man is built to last?
Like water be, take on the form
To find inside you're solid to the core

Dark night of gloom
Red sun of doom
Gotham metropolis
I never asked for this
Can you stand the day you stumble?
Can you bend or will you crumble?
Oh, to be a rock!

Every day another trial
How many steps to climb a mile?
Push that weight back up that hill
A thousand labors only to stand still
Men of stone men of steel
But what kind of man is real?
Man of motion never rests
Each day put your mettle to the test

Red sun of doom
Dark night of gloom
I never asked for this
Gotham metropolis
Will you crack the day you stumble?
Can you stand or will you crumble?
Oh, to be a rock!

Soul On Fire

She don't wanna hear no DJ
She wanna come and see the band play
Ah listen what the man on the stand say

She like a dancin' and a bumpin'
Ah the room is really thumpin'
Listen then man on the stand tell you somethin'

Spirit in the night
Blinded by the light
In the midnight hour
When my soul's on fire

She dance till dawn and the devil himself may care
Smoke in her eyes and fire in her hair
Spice in her smile and snakes stare in her glare

She got the groove
Yeah she got the moves
She got the legs
She even got the shoes

I got the horn
And I got the news
I got the sound
I even got the blues

She don't wanna see no DJ
She wanna go and hear the band play
Listen what the man on the stand say
