ELO-Yours Truly, 2095
Lyrics: Jeff Lynne

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

I sent a message to another time
But as the days unwind, this I just can't believe
I sent a note across another plane
Maybe it's all a game, but this I just can't conceive.

Can you hear me?

I drive the very latest hovercar
I don't know where you are
But I miss you so much till then
I met someone who looks a lot like you
She does the things you do
But she is an IBM.

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

Shes only programmed to be very nice
But she's as cold as ice
Whenever I get too near
She tells me that she likes me very much
But when I try to touch
She makes it all too clear.

She is the latest in technology
Almost mythology
But she has a heart stone
She has an i.q. of 1001
She has a jumpsuit on
And she's also a telephone.

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

Chorus:
Is that what you want? (is it what you want? )
Is it what you really want? (is it what you really want? )
Is that what you want? (is it what you want? )
Is it what you really want?

I realize that it must seem so strange
That time has rearranged
But time has the final word
She knows I think of you, she reads my mind
She tries to be unkind
She knows nothing of our world

Although her memory banks overflow
No one would ever know
For all she says: is that what you want?
Maybe one day I'll feel her cold embrace
And kiss her interface
Til then, I'll leave her alone.

I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly...

Repeat chorus:

Is that what you want?

She'd be long dead by 2095 if she doesn't time travel with him...and he is banging his wife albeit cybernetically. "Android" by Ultra is based on the same thing. I like the concept of banging a robot... Razz

Just keep jamming this song over and over and over. It's been a long time that a song's had that effect on me. Musically I've always loved it but lyrically it's brilliant! Tosin Abasi would do some damn good stuff on a remake/collaboration w/Wilson.

Steven Wilson

"No Part Of Me"


I feel worn out
There's no point drinking
When life slows right down
And holds you up above the water line
So sleep will never come

One last time then
Before I lose you
You don't have to pretend
I know that love for you was just security
There's no part of me in you

Great song.

I think my favorite lyrically is Disappear (from the PT compilation Recordings).

We made the world believe we didn't care
We gate crashed parties and just stood and stared
We moved to London and stayed in all year
You wrote poetry while I disappeared

You made a choice for us to live it up
I've got a voice inside me saying give it up
Let's get out of here, let's find a new career
You be famous, I'll disappear

Disappear - I erase myself again

I need security, you favour chance
I ponder everything, you advance
You bring the world to me and I just sneer
Standing next to you I disappear

MY SENTIMENTS EXACTLY...



Saint Vitus-Let Them Fall

Why do I scream at them
They never listen
Why do I beat my head
against the wall
I made a simple plan
They complicate it
Now they're near the edge
Let them fall

Why do they make my life hard
It's so damn easy
But still they choose to fight
Among themselves
And when they cry about
Their poor existence
The only one who hears them
Reigns in Hell

This rise of mysery
Is never ending
It feeds upon
Corrupted souls
I stand within its wake
And watch the suffering
As the hand of pain
Keeps control
Why do I scream at them
They never listen
Why do I beat my head against the wall
I made a simple plan
They complicate it
Now they're near the edge
Let them fall

"Any World (That I'm Welcome To)"

Steely Dan


If I had my way
I would move to another lifetime
I'd quit my job
Ride the train through the misty nighttime
I'll be ready when my feet touch ground
Wherever I come down
And if the folks will have me
Then they'll have me

[Chorus:]
Any world that I'm welcome to
Is better than the one I come from

I can hear your words
When you speak of what you are and have seen
I can see your hand
Reaching out through a shining daydream
Where the days and nights are not the same
Captured happy in a picture frame
Honey I will be there
Yes I'll be there

[Chorus]

I got this thing inside me
That's got to find a place to hide me
I only know I must obey
This feeling I can't explain away

I think I'll go to the park
Watch the children playing
Perhaps I'll find in my head
What my heart is saying
A vision of a child returning
A kingdom where the sky is burning
Honey I will be there
Yes I'll be there

[Chorus]

Peter Gabriel - Wallflower (1982)


Six by six, from wall to wall
Shutters on the windows, no light at all
Damp on the floor you got damp in the bed
They're trying to get you crazy get you out of your head
They feed you scraps and they feed you lies
To lower your defenses, no compromise
There's nothing you can do, the day can be long
You mind is working overtime, your body's not too strong

Hold on, hold on, hold on,
Hold on, hold on, hold on

They put you in a box so you can't get heard
Let your spirit stay unbroken, may you not be deterred
Hold on, you have gambled with your own life
You faced the night alone
While the builders of the cages
Sleep with bullets, bars and stone
They do not see the road to freedom
That you build with flesh and bone

They take you out the light burns your eyes
To the talking room it's not surprise
Loaded questions from clean white coats
Their eyes are all as hidden as their Hippocratic Oath
They tell you how to behave, behave as their guest
You want to resist them, you do your best
They take you to your limits, they take you beyond
For all that they are doing there's no way to respond

Hold on, hold on
They put you in a box so you can't get heard
Let your spirit stay unbroken, may you not be deterred
Hold on, you have gambled with your own life
You face the night alone
While the builders of the cages
Sleep with bullets, bars and stone
They do not see the road to freedom
That you build with flesh and bone

Though you may disappear, you're not forgotten here
And I will say to you, I will do what I can do

You may disappear, you're not forgotten here
And I will say you you, I will do what I can do
And I will do what I can do
I will do what I can do
