Cosmic Man Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Quantum Eraser (1:59)
Instrumental
2. Cold Souls (7:00)
Frozen in glass, Extracted by machine
Cold souls!

Don't take it away

Soul removal, appointment today
Frozen in storage and here it will stay
Emotional death, not as perfect as it seems
DMT in suspense, pausing all your dreams

Cold souls bear no fruit
Trees of life cut at the root

Don't take it from me, it is my essence
So unassuming, stop what you're doing!

Where is my blackness, the one I know so well?
Stored in the basement of a concrete hell
Purgatory, sub-zero icy chill
Sold onto another...

Cold souls bear no fruit
Trees of life cut at the root

Don't take it from me, it is my essence
So unassuming, stop what you're doing!

Frozen in glass, Extracted by machine
Cold souls!

They've misplaced my soul
So I took another instead
The donor took their own life
No dreams now.
3. Death Is the Portal (8:10)
Ride into the light
Beyond the mountains high
Cosmic voyage - a shooting star
Seen from below
A phosphorescent glow
Rev the engine, we're gonna go far
Through the darkened void
Of systems long destroyed
Magnetic pulse pulls me through
The sun is distant now
Just don't ask me how
The black of space a different hue

Death is the portal
To becoming immortal

Ride the beam of light
Into the endless night
Time rearranging
Reality is changing

Beyond all hope
Into darkness I ride
taking death in my stride

Headlights turned to full beam
Traversing the eternal dream
Death is the portal
To becoming immortal

Beyond all hope
Into darkness I ride
taking death in my stride

Reaching my destination
I'm filled with trepidation
Death is the portal
To becoming immortal

Beyond all hope
Into darkness I ride
taking death in my stride

"Now in a haze, forgetting the distant days
This feeling's indivisible
Disappear into the far-off distant blue
Becoming the invisible"
4. Neon Ghoul RIde (6:40)
Ride the ghost-train if you dare
Take a ride through living hell
Where the day departs to night-time
At the ringing of the bell.
Doors of perception burst
You enter, but what to find?
Hear the wailing sirens
As the great doors close behind...

“Is someone there?” a familiar voice
Calls out into the dark
It’s answered by an echoing groan
In response to your remark
You pick up speed and start to fall
The dim lights flashing past
‘It’s just for children’ you kid yourself
Reality hard to grasp.

Neon ghoul ride - to where nobody knows
To the future - to the past

The rattle of your flimsy cart
On the train-track down below
It's enough to derail your mind
As your fears begin to grow
Deep in the heart now of the ride;
The point of no return
It’s too late to turn back now
Your soul begins to burn.

Neon ghoul ride - to where nobody knows
To the future - to the past

Doors ajar hide skeletons
From a far-off distant past
Hauntings from your future times
Are waiting till the last
The disembodied wailings
Will drive you around the bend
Plastic coffins, electric skulls ;
A nightmare without end
5. Space Horse (7:06)
Instrumental
6. Running Away from the Circus (6:00)
“Roll up! Roll up!
Come and see the circus of freaks,
fools and pitiful miscreants”

In the full moon's ring the acts perform
And I curse the day that I took refuge here
This freak show is an open lid to hell
From the canvas ceiling
to the murky depths below

Running away from the circus

Every day is a nightmare
Culminating in the show
The ringmaster cracks his whip
(his top hat hiding his horns)
The performers laugh nervously
The crowd jeer in contempt
I envy the man who put his head
In the hungry lion’s mouth

Running away from the circus

I've been kept awake for months
By the weeping of the clowns
The trapeze artist’s plain drunk
And the strongman breaking down
I am the tightrope walker
Every day I deal with death
She lives in the wagon opposite
With a man with fire for breath

Acrobatic elephants
A self-immolating car
A bearded lady, a man in a bottle
Don’t run, you won’t get far…
We never stop for too long
For fear of acception
Spiraling down, from town to town…
I must run away from the circus
It’s a living, breathing hell
All performers are in limbo
With no souls left to sell

Dive into the bucket
From 100 feet above
The magician removes his handkerchief
And lets loose a dove ;

"Fly away, my white feathered friend"
7. Thief in the Sky (5:36)
The man who stole the music
He lives in the moon
Like a thief stowing away
He hides in its pale light

There's no escaping
The gravity of his heinous crime
Festering in your mind
Until the day you die

“Can this be true, these tales of old
Of a thief in the sky with many a tune ?
I'll be waiting for him
Next time he's coming down
And I'll ask him why he stole my heart”

..He's coming down..

“Oh pale-faced cretin; why do you come?
To steal my ideas, to hide them away!
Be gone back to your cold out-post
But give me my heart before you leave”

Did you just see him? Now he's gone
Please don't tell me you still don't believe?
Next time he's here, I'll let him know
That your dreams aren't worth taking
8. Time Travelling Medicine Man (5:18)
The false impostor - spins like a wheel
With hair so wild and eyes of fire
No time but show time and drifting the web

He’s the first to escape
From the hole in my head
I’m shaking with fear and a portent of dread
Poetic prophet, dance into a craze
Turn a million times before
The setting of the Sun

This is a song for the
Time-travelling medicine man
He'll be gone again too soon
Hear his wisdom while you can

With radiation brain & gamma-ray eyes
Proclaiming doom & wisdom
From the darkening skies
Hear him come calling from the other side
Walking through reflections in the mirror

Who’s to stop him and why is it so?
He’d only claim insanity, so just let him go
On his fire-blazing mission
He comes calling on winds
The ticking of the clouds
Like a clock when it sings

This is a song for the
Time-travelling medicine man
He'll be gone again too soon
Hear his wisdom while you can

Here he comes now !

Call the thunder - warn of times to come
With a flash of light the ritual has begun
“Won’t you come with me ?”
Stand and deliver - Give me your mind !
A 21st Century remedy
He’s on the quest for eternity

Cloud clock - Loud clock
Tick tock - Clouds STOP!
