Prologue to Spinning around in Jupiter

And the planets all aligned to welcome the Voyager who was carried into space and time as a microbe aboard a giant Dragonfly, shooting him into a continuum forged in the skyís crust. She said to him be on your way, I will wait for you by the candlelight of the sea and stroke the darkness till day comes and pray you may see your hometown of Sydney, Coming home from the depths of fragrant space. As she watched him being devoured by the gravity of a Sea of Gold, she called `you canít be blind if you are to be free in your new home in the effervescent flavours of this New World. The Gods will have you Spinning around in Jupiter, All around, and the structure of the cosmos to a place where you will be sailing in your dreams to far stretched reaches of our Galaxy. There will be the symbol of time who they call The Hour man, Here I stand watching you to give yourself to this higher power, what can I do to save you, except love you and will your strength to an immortal dimension so survival will pertain in your soul. As Time stands and the modern man floated in his own spirit lost in the void surrounding his hearts until David, lost himself, but of stronger stature spiritually gave himself to thee and like a hymn spoke, Ah! `Life under the Sea is within me and as a creature from the Sea you must survive this dream time if you are to go home, you must find Compulsive love, How can you stay!í Now go today. If you think on this higher level you will think of My little Japan, She comes to me and as I think of her I last one more day in this Jungle of plenitude and absorption and If Itís over you and I Can die in peace and we can feel the Wind again against our skins, So powerful yet so nice And as we feel the wind you and Iíll watch the tide, and If you were trapped well that will be that and home we will slide on the Angels hair in our Continuum of time

Dragonfly

Four wings and Iím falling, I canít hear you calling, Little creatures like me, You will never see. Four wings and Iím falling, Can you hear me calling, Little creatures like me, You will never be. (Chorus) Dragonfly , Dragonfly , Dragonfly , Dragonfly ,The wind eases as I fall now, I will have to try harder now, Keep those birds away from me, I just want to be free. (Sub) Dragonfly the wind carries you around, Soak up the air that leads you to town. Dragonfly the wind carries you around, Soak up the air that leads you to town. Ah! Four wings and Iím falling, I canít hear you calling, Little creatures like me, You will You will never, See, You will never, See, You will never see me, You will never see Me You will never see Me

I will wait for you

The candle light burned in my face, Out-side it started to rain, All my thoughts were thrown at the wall, An escarpment was echoing my call, But your light came shining through, Your light came shining through, And I will wait for you. The shifting sands, carried by waves, Ease the ripples that swell in my brain, All the time weíve spend, has since flown past, And that escarpment is now growing fast, But your light still shine through, You light still shines through, And I will wait for you. And I will wait for you Body and soul is covered in ice,A second passes and I think of you twice, The music `Rollsí around in my head, The gardens planted now the seeds must spread, And your light grows to shine through, Say, your loves gets me through, And I will wait for you, I will wait for you, I canít help my self, I will wait for you.

Sydney

Catch my breath Iím coming back to my home town, Six oíclock and I can feel the breeze, Catch my breath Iím coming back to my home town, Seven oíclock now and I can see the Bridge, But Iím Hanging on a line like a fish caught at sea, Hanging on a line like a boat out at sea , Hanging on a line drop my anchor cause, Iím in Sydney, Iím in Sydney. Catch my breath Iím coming back to my home town, Eight oíclock I can smell the Sea, Catch my breath Iím coming back to my home town, And by nine your message pleases me, Hanging on a line like a boat out at sea , Hanging on a line drop my anchor cause, Iím in Sydney Come on girl can you see Come on girl I want you to see, Come on girl can you see Come on girl I want you to see Sydney, Sydney, Sydney, Sydney, Sydney,

Sea of gold

Easy Beats, Fill easy seats, Many Fraud Time, Silly men, Fill the silly seats, Caustic to our state of mind. Tender moments, in these tender times, Slip through an uneasy mind, Sadness reins, through sad divine, Say you love me one more time. Fill yours, donít take mine, A Sea of Gold canít be blind, The Buckles can hold now, But tension will stop - (pause) so release. Place your meat on my tethered wine, Grapes are so empty, Swollen, So hold on to yourself divine, Say you love me one more time. Say you love me one more time. Fill yours, donít take mine, A Sea of Gold canít be blind, The Buckles can hold now, But tension will stop - (pause) so release. Easy Beats, Fill easy seats, Many Fraud Time, Silly men, Fill the silly seats, Caustic to our state of mind. Fill yours, donít take mine, A Sea of Gold canít be blind, The Buckles can hold now, But tension will stop - (pause) so release.

Spinning around in Jupiter

Iím spinning around in Jupiter, Spinning, Spinning, Spinning, all around. Iím up here in the stratosphere, My feet are never, going to touch down, I'm sailing around the Universe, Sailing, Sailing, Sailing far and wide. Iím floating here in infinity, Watching as my senses gather around Donít know why Iím so high, Watch from here IĎm so near, Catch my breath Right and left, Sing my songs Wonít take long Spinning, Spinning, Spinning, all around. Spinning, Spinning, Spinning, never touch down. Spinning, Spinning, Spinning, all around. my feet are never touch down. Iím jumping on in Cyber space, Three million miles above the ground. Iím standing on an assembly line, Watching people fall to the ground. I spun from this place so high, I thought I could jump up an touch the sky, Sailing, Spinning, Floating all around, here in infinity, watching the ground, Stand up here in the Stratosphere three million miles above the ground, Watch my senses gather around Iím never, never, never going to touch down,

The hour man

In the wind that changed time, I have lost my mind, See the crowds that lost their gloom, I sit in my empty room, Stored the face, sat in the ice,Watched by TV, gathered like Mice, And I sit in my empty room. Show the sand, the hour man, Stormed my head & hand, Been through the trees that looked beyond, I canít see much over there, I sit in my room and stare, Catch some Poet talking sweet, I canít listen, I sit in my room and weep. In the face of an open span, I stand, Catch the rays as it Hypnotises me, Into its open arms, I cry, I weep, I walk towards it, As it showers me with Gold, A prize Iím told, Ooh OOO Ooh OOO. Catastrophic Under Mine, Where I walk I keep my time, I sat through rushes of the cold, I dragged breath from my empty room, The light was bright, I was in need, God shined on me and was freed, No longer stuck in my empty tomb. In the face of an open span, I stand, Catch the rays as it hypnotises me, Into its open arms, I cry, I weep, I walk towards it, As it showers me with Gold, A prize Iím told, Ooh OOO Ooh OOO. Ooh OOO Ooh OOO. I stand, the Hour man, I stand, the Hour man,

Time stands & the modern man

Time stands & the modern man, For he only lives for today, He finds all pressure, And he is left to pray. Time stands & the modern man, For he stays only for a day, Unless someone takes it, Takes it all away. And the winds of change will carry him away, And then the pressure goes he begs you to stay, Time has grown in his heart a flower is born, And through change the best in him comes Time stands for the modern man, Heís won this battle of hearts, No change! Time stays, we all pray, for the man & love.

David

Won a job so large today, Felt my feelings run away, Not too sure if things will be alright, David said itís OK, see the light Need some help to run away, Fallen down again today, Did some things and they werenít right, David said itís OK, see the light David said it will be all right, Things are complex when shaded white, Canít be so bad, youíll see, Ooh All you gotta do, all you gotta do is follow me yeah Cleverness breeds contempt, In the heart of an unsung mind, And FEAR breeds a heart, shaped by any thoughts, Claws its way back, past hope. David said it will be all right, Things are complex when shaded white, Canít be so bad, youíll see, Ooh All you gotta do, all you gotta do is follow me yeah You know what David said to me, Donít shield your light, you gotta let it free, You know what David said to me, Donít shield your light, you gotta let it free, Need some help to run away, Fallen down again today, Did some things and they werenít right, David said itís OK, see the light David said it will be all right, Things are complex when shaded white, Canít be so bad, youíll see, Ooh All you gotta do, all you gotta do is follow me yeah I Said !All you gotta do, all you gotta do is follow me yeah I Said All you gotta do, all you gotta do is follow me yeah I Said All you gotta do, all you gotta do, all you gotta do, I Said All you gotta do, all you gotta do, is follow me, Follow me yeah !

Life under the Sea

The water forms to greet me, Sand dwells between my toes, All the noise surrounds me, And the Ocean washes me underground. Waves are left to the breeze, And I come, in Bare, Life swells beneath its crashing surf, I can breath again. Rocks surround its argent beauty, As the sun beats down, I am caught in a sea of tranquillity, With the light of cold water all around. Shells touch my skin, But it doesnít care, As I rage in the waves of distant time, The Beach, The waves, Life under the sea

Compulsive Love

All I can think about in my mind, The smell of a flower & something so kind, The showers of bliss, you helped to unwind, Taste the sweet shape, sinfully signed. Catch the waves of Venus youíre so fair, Your Moons are dark, same as your air, It was there perched like a sail in the heat, She held my soul, it was so neat, So I come as the wind blows fierce, Looked up at you with a gentle kiss, The Sun and Moons are so well defined, As a wave of courage overwhelms my mind. And Venus - how can you stay? Shaking fear through the trees whilst she is away, And Venus - I need you so much! Your face just tells me to touch, Wish I could help you run away, But you know that I just canít stay. And through life revolves a bliss, Sealed it with, a Compulsory kiss, I left and renewed my dreams, Into the well of a thousand lights and beams. Itís changed for me, now I know, To run the gun , hold the throw, Your Moon they were very kind, All this sincerely blew my mind, And Venus - how can you stay Shaking fear through the trees whilst she is away, And Venus - I need you so much !Your face just tells me to touch, Wish I could help you run away, But you know that I just canít stay. Ohh Yeah I canít stay, But I wish that I could Stay! I find that all this compulsive love, Blows my mind, but refuels my love, And though the wind and sea may be, Venus will be there for me. And Venus - how can you stay ? Shaking fear through the trees whilst she is away, And Venus - I need you so much! Your face just tells me to touch, Wish I could help you run away, But you know that I just canít stay. He, Yeah---Hair, Ohh Yeah I canít stayóay, But I wish that I could Stay!

My little Japan

In the night she comes to me, My Little Japan, And when she comes she settles me, My Little Japan, And on the stage where the Earth revolves, And the starlight fills the sky, She comes and caresses me, And my lights are turned on. In the day she rescues me, My Little Japan, And her hands are soothing as she layís with me, My Little Japan, And the sky fills with sounds so strange, As the Ants come for me, But my little wonder comes to stay, And my lights are turned on. In the dawn she found me, My Little Japan, And wrapped her love all over me, My Little Japan, And as my mind evolves with sounds so strange, The threads start to unwind, She comes and caresses me, And my lights are turned on. Heaven sent you down to save me, But thereís no way you can help me, I Know And the miles that live between us are further now, And the skyís not so clear for me, Forebode I plead with you, For you can be anyone, At any time, At any cost, With any one, With many crimes, At any time, At any cost, With any one, With many crimes, At any cost, Why wait.! Why worry this time.

It's over now

Itís over now I can die in peace, Dried are the flowers that seeded in my head, The Cambridge of the time, Stood itís ground on me, The deadlines over Iíve no more to say. Itís over now I can cry again, For so long there, I was comforting numb, The saying `Go forthí needed decree, The army wonder was this for so, so long. Then there is pleasure, I love the pleasure dome in time, Then there is the sadness, Which greets us, from within, Then there is relief, Itís needed now I know, Itís over now I can die in peace, Said itís over now I can cry in peace, Dried is the music which flowed from my head, The Cambridge of the time, Stood itís soul on me, The deadlines over no more Iím free. Then a life is ruined, I take the blame, no pride, Then with help weíre better, Come back to save my life. Then there is relief, Itís needed now I know, Itís over now I can die in peace, Itís over now I can carry on, For so long there, I was as good as done, The saying `Rest In Peaceí came to see, The lights a fading shine your love on me. Itís over now I can die in peace, Itís over now I can cry again, Itís over now I can die in peace, Itís over now I can cry again,

Wind

Last night the Wind was so strong, It came and went with pleasure, A living breathing Animal, Set out to annoy me. The Wind has set sails, And blown a fire along, Created dunes and sank ships. The Wind is set to blow, Blow your house down, Make you live in a lower part of town. As I walked down the street yesterday, I was blown back and forward, I was its pray, So powerful yet so nice. To feel the Wind through your clothes, And to face its pleasure, Can you imagine a more listless weather. Trees shake at the sound of its might, Yet it can only be seen with dust. To me the wind needs to come more often And blow the garbage away, From my soul thatís left to be forgotten. Save me take my soul to Heaven, And your bliss can shower the cloves of my garden.

I'll watch the tide

If I were trapped & you were crap, Donít save me! In the belly of Winter, when no one is around, I wonít call for you! If I scream out loud, for some help, Donít save me! Iíll watch the tide and drift, I wonít call for you! Deep in my soul, a person sits, And from that soul a need is found, Another day goes behind us. Release can only wander around. If Iím writing a story, Donít read me! A story of Kindness, no trouble to be found, And if I scream out loud for some help, Donít save me! Iíll watch the tide and drift, I wonít call for you, Deep in my soul, a person sits, And from that soul, a need is found, Another day goes, behind us. Release can only wander around. Donít save me! I wonít call for you! Donít save me! I wonít call for you! Donít you save me! Donít you save me ! No, No, No Iíll watch the tide, Iíll watch the tide, Iíll watch the tide,
