all Powerman 5000 lyrics



AN EYE IS UPON YOU
Spinning complacently in the darkness
Covered and blinded by a blanket of little lives
False security has lulled the madness of this world into a slumber
Wake Up!
An eye is upon you
Staring straight down and keenly through,
Seeing all that you are and everything that you can never be
Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink.
SO face forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling
Your future has arrived...Are you ready yo go?back to top
SUPERNOVA GOES POP
Are you the future
Or are you the past
Have you been chosen
Or are you the last
The pictures were sent
They seem so unreal
Now I'm made of plastic wire and steel
Follow for now and follow for this
Cause everybody follows for nothing at all

Supernova your supernova...supernova goes pop
Supernova you think its over but supernova fdon't stop

Can you explain
Just what you are
I've never been this close to a star
The message was sent you know what to do
everybody needs to be someone don't you

(chorus)back to top
WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE
What is it really
That's going on here
You've got your system for total control
So is there really anybody out there
Now watch us suffer cause we can't go
What is it really that is in your head
What little life that you had just died
I'm gonna be the one that's takin over
Now this is what it's like when worlds collide

Are you ready to go
Cause I'm ready to go
What you gonna do baby baby
Are you going with me
Cause I'm going with you
It's the end of all time

What is it really that motivates you
The need to fly or this fear to stop
I'll go along for the ride but surprise
When we get there I say 9 of 10 drop
Now who's the light and who is the devil
You can't decide so I'll be your guide
And one by one they will be hand chosen
Now this is what it's like when worlds collide

(chorus)

What is it really when they're fallin over
Everything that you thought is denied
I'm gonna be the one that's takin over
Now this is what it's like when worlds collideback to top
NOBODY'S REAL
Scary monsters
And super peeps
The more you dream the less you sleep
Life as you know it
Has gone away
Unbound, unwound, who's here to stay

Nobody's real but they're willing to let you know
Nobody's real but they'll feel it tonight
Nobody's real but they're willing to let you go
Nobody's real but they'll feel it

How do you sleep
With the time that's left you
It's all been done
There's no need for the rescue
So let's just get out
I swear there's no doubt
You can't be ready cause there's nothing left to do

(chorus)back to top
SYSTEM 11:11
There's a system to the system
I don't fit in the system
Go yeah go but don't expect me to miss you
Trying to find a hole in the bottom
Of the soul-less
Thinking about the world from the edge
You can't control this
Now what the fuck are you
Some kind of half-assed astronaut?
just a moment please I must insist you stopback to top
TONIGHT THE STARS REVOLT
Hang on to tomorrow
Because tonight the stars revolt!
Do you belive
and will you learn to scream
LIKE ME
There's nothing to it
When stars revolt
They're only doing what they're told
What's the mystery
The lights of death and fame
SHINE ON
Invaders from inside
Can easily replace
YOU NOW
Hang on tomorrow
Because tonight, the stars
Target Earth for me
Because tonight, the stars
Sing your favorite song
Because tonight, the stars
Show the way to die
because tonight, the stars revoltback to top
AUTOMATIC
The trip for a million miles
93 to the Sun
Take your place and you say goodbye
It's autmatic your the one

It's automatic, its automatic
It's automatic your the one
It's automatic, it's automatic
It's automatic your day alive has just begun

What's in the air
Who's in the mind
Where's the light in your eye
Within the realm of the possible
It's no big surprise

(chorus)

Brilliant sheep lead to brilliant babies
A thousand stars
A million maybes
Captivating the captivated
Save the souls of those that you created

(chorus)back to top
THE SON OF X-51
Sitting with your eyes shut tightly
Waiting for the time you must leave
Surrounded by people that you'll never know
Still you must go and transit
The sound of what you have found and leave eveything that you knew behind

Let's go
I know
The son of x-51
And so
You'll know Your time has only begun

Can it be what you want it to be
Can it be everything
Can it be what you need it to be
Begging you to beleive

(chorus)

Watching with your arms wide open
Thinking everyone should just stop
Surrounded by people that you'll never need
A plan to deceive is what we need
And keep everything that you knew inside

(chorus)back to top
OPERATE ANNIHILATE
Want to be everybody
Wish that I wasn't me
Was dropped from out of sight
Always land on my feet
Was bit by the bug
Grew 47 feet tall
Wasn't who i thought i was
Wasn't anything at all
I want to be everybody
I wish that i wasn't me
I'm the bones of the dead
Superhero trustee

Not seven minutes have passed
And eveybody got blasted
Operate, annihilate
What you got, you got too late
Cause everybody's gone

I want to be everybody
I wish that i wasn't me
The point furthest from me is from a point of view
Less likely you were the king of the moon
Now you just lie in the dirt
Where is the fist of fury
Now eveybody gets hurt
I want to be everybody
I wish that I wasn't me
The real truth is in the head of truth is insanity

(chorus)back to top
BLAST OFF TO NOWHERE
Blast off, blast off to nowhere
Blast off this is time to go
Blast off, blast off to nowhere
Blast off are you really what you think so?

Please just kill me now or get me off this rock
Cause i can't stand to see your faces
And I can't stand to hear you talk
Prepared for anything cause this time is for real
Burn the souls of those left behind
And i don't care how you feel
Cause it's time...to blast off

(chorus)back to top
THEY KNOW WHO YOU ARE
Gone for a moment that you'll never know
all of these things that you can't control

They know who you are (x4)

Gone for a moment that you'll never know
All of these things that you can't control
The lights from above they move in real slow
Giving you things that you'll never know

They know who you are (x4)

One for the machines that fill up the sky
And one for the demon that lights up your eye

They know who you are (x2)

(chorus)

They know who you are (x4)back to top
GOOD TIMES ROLL
Let the good times roll
Let them knock you around
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
Let them make you a clown
Let them leave you up in the air
Let them brush your rock and roll hair

Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll
Let the stories be cold

They can say what they want
Let the photos be old
Let them show what they want
If the illusion is real
Let them give you a ride
If they got thunder appeal
Let them be on your sideback to top
WATCH THE SKY FOR ME
Watch the sky for me
Watch the night
I'll be there for you in starlight
As your feet touch the ground
I'll be floating along
Watch the sky for me tonight
Just as every moment leads you to the past
Just as eveything has gone
I'm the one you need to know that there is someone else
Just as this is now goodbyeback to top
