Track Name: Ancient Monuments
Ancient Monuments (lyrics; C. Allen)


I get my thrill
On Silbury Hill
I spend my time
In the rain and the moonshine

In a Quoit, in a Barrow, in a Fogou, on a Tor
I don't do anything that's normal anymore
Chasing down the ridgeway and the avenues
Looking for the signs looking for the clues

These are the signposts of our history
The ancient footprints to our destiny
Locked within this sacred firmament
Ancient Monuments

I train my eyes
On the astral sky
I fix my sights
On the stars in the night

I can see anything with the world in my hand
I don't do anything that you would understand
Picking up a signal in the cosmic array
Coming down the light years a million miles away

These are the signposts of our history
The ancient footprints to our destiny
Locked within this sacred firmament
Ancient Monuments
Track Name: Drone
DRONE (lyrics; C. Allen)


You can find me in Nature
I’m idle but in flight I create
Genetic reproduction
10 million new productive clones
Given by the selfless Drone

You can read me in your pages
I’ll take you to the outer edge of space
Cerebral Construction
A million new universes
Come to life in fictional space

You can find me in the Combat Zone
My flightpath is to seek and destroy
Computerized destruction
A million fleeing from their homes
Running from the Combat Drones
Running from the Combat Drones
