Track Name: I Am Energy
I can see this very close
I can see it coming near
I can compute this logic
When I plug it in and converge
To say it with magnetics
The exact binary
But never see the codes
Except what’s on the screen

The law in my mind
The law is in my hands
I command this how I wish
With a flip of the switch
I never even wonder
I never stop to care
My reality is about me
My reality is on the screen

I am Energy

Power is all around me
It’s much too simple now
I’m thinking in a circuit
Like I’ve always done
Not like electron guidance
My atoms never merge
I always move in patterns
Just like what’s on the screen
Track Name: Remote Control
I have three screens to choose from
All night, all stations
My video cassette recorder
Has become my dream monitor

Technology has caught up with me
I am no longer a slave to reality
No one tells me different thoughts
Lest I pull the plug

My remote control
Does my thinking for me
My remote control
Runs my life
My remote control
Is my friend

Music and images
In perfect synchronicity
At last the perfection
Of human thought control

Even this computer rhythms
Are forcing me to conform
But it is impossible
To do freeform life control

My remote control
Does my thinking for me
My remote control
Runs my life
My remote control
Is my friend

Buy, Quality, Consume, Reliability,
Warranty, Purchase, Limited, Satisfaction.

My remote control
Does my thinking for me
My remote control
Runs my life
My remote control
Is my friend
Track Name: Techno Love
There was a photograph
Laptop and EKG
Cellular tonight I dance
Realistic remote design

Technolove
Technodance
Technolove
Technopop

Magnetic attraction into space
Digicore magnetizer
Celestial forager
The multi-function pulsar charge

DC motor I can’t sit still
Electric heaters on my window sill
Your love is like a disk drive
Pneumatic Jarvik number 5

I do not believe in colours
Colours block the mind
Except when I wear paisley
But even my paisley is black and white
Atian can dance with no guitar
Track Name: VR
I can not see my vision
If my mind is not plugged in
I can program this universe
Unless the power fails
A movement of this appendage
Changes colours of the sky
Or it just the ceiling
That the walls grow to meet

VR
Reality

This world that I see
Becomes mine to command
My capabilities multiply
With the proper database
A computerized dream
To expand synapse ability
Or a mechanization
Of mass production thought

VR
Reality
Track Name: The Volt Age
Current. Electricity.
From the power plant
Current. Electricity.
And electric light
Current. Electricity.
From the power plant
Current. Electricity.
Powers my computer

Circuit. Energy. Power.
The Volt Age
Circuit. Energy. Power.
The Volt Age

I had been monitoring
From an outer spiral nebular outpost
Lost in the blue screen
of Ordinator malfunction
From the variegated surface of carbonized rock
Came a signal pulse
I called to the coordinates
There was no answer yet

Had you heard but not heard?
Had you heard but not heard?
Had you heard but not heard
that it was The Volt Age?

The wires go through me
The wires go round me
The wires that hold me
The wires frees me

Then a communiqué
Growing stronger with every orbit
Sent a message of point line to plane & acute angles
Molecular autobahn of alternating currents
I send my regards to the 18th century physicist

The potential of the stars has now been harnessed
The powered-up station awaits your arrival

The wires go through me
The wires go round me
The wires that hold me
The wires frees me

Current. Electricity.
From the power plant
Current. Electricity.
And electric light
Current. Electricity.
From the power plant
Current. Electricity.
Powers my computer

Circuit. Energy. Power.
The Volt Age
Circuit. Energy. Power.
The Volt Age
Track Name: Stoletov 24
Transport to the city
Powered by electrons
Moving very silent
Just the hum of the motor
Turn up the voltage
To accelerate momentum
Switch on auto-drive
For self navigation
