An Atompunk Opera, The New Albion Guide To Analogue Consciousness

Act 1

New Albion 9

Mascot 3000:
There’s a city it is said that borders with the land of dead
And since you’re here again, you best just stay
New Albion’s its name, a sleek and large and lonely place
And a tale of it we tell today
Two decades now it’s been since a voodoo religion
Spread like flames and disappeared like smoke
Only a generation hence, oh the tech boom was intense
But these days Arcadia Corp is closed

Here’s to the days of bliss and wishes
Here’s to the wild seeds once sown
Here’s to the cults and waltz and whipsers
Before they just us all alone
Left us hangin on our own

Housing projects lay half bare Bathed in lonely, neon glare
Chorales of cockroaches sing hymns all through
There’s an oracle now who the middle classes all flock too
Though it’s a radiated pile of ooze
There’s a super hero though he’s just a hologram you know
Three college students they project each night
The monorail line A has a ghost at night they say
A pop star who has yet to break or die

Here’s to the days that blazed so vivid
When voodoopunks sang upon the street
Here’s to the diodes and transistors
That promised the future they would bring
But it’s not all like it seems

A taxi driver you may know you think a robot but not so
A mouse named Kevin lives inside his skull
He’s the one who drives the cab, tells bad jokes and who cops ask
For advice on crimes to tough to solve
An albino red haired girl, well she runs the underworld
Controls a sandy drug i know you know
It’s a generation hence from oh so interesting events
But these days Arcadia Corp is closed

Here’s to the days of songs and stories
there’s one more i’d like you all to hear
It all begins now with our dear Rachael,
been in the Asylum two long years
She had some fine days of bliss and wishes,
but just the city’s they have flown
Please join me to lend her and attend her,
she’s been too long in there on her own
And that’s longer than you know

Rachael

Rachael:
One day the walls will fall away and in the open air i’ll race
Your rooms, your pills, your white restraints you will choke on them i pray
The smug scratch of your pen your sticky fingers in my head
and ask how did i lose my grasp on the truth
was it abuse or booze that brought me to
where girls are kept under careful lock
be good or get the shock

One day the walls will fall away A swallowed key will buy my way
From stern and sighing white frocked men Who tell me “stop this sad pretense.
Miss Idle’s Home for Orphaned Girls gave you a leg up in this world,
But now you just stain the good Alderman’s name
Girls who lie will find they get put away
And kept under careful lock
Be good or get the shock”

And all my life the radio
Told me how it loved me so
All for me a yearning song, a long last love where i belong
She’s mad they say. Lock her deep away.

I caught his eye the day he came
With his Save Orphans Now campaign
At fifteen i, his special girl, he showed me a new, exciting world
With sweet precision how he swept me off my feet and into bed
A rapturous dream it certainly seemed, i was too young to know, to see

Until the day my cycle was late
“You will rid yourself of this” he came to say
And when i refused they came and accused
And swore and said there’s something wrong with my head
And then they locked me away, drugged me up and ripped my child away
And if i ever dare to say his name

All will be taken from you
Ah, and all you love will go to
Ah

And all my life the radio
Told me how it loved me so
All for me a yearning song, a long last love where i belong

One day the walls will fall away And in the open air i race

Introducing The Mascot 3000

Mascot 3000:
Rachael flees the mad house runs into the evening breeze
she doesn’t know it now but she is heading straight for me
beyond the gates, an old man waits as if he knew she’d come
he holds me in his hands tells her to take me and to run

Connor:
I’m sorry for your sorrows you think that we don’t know you
but oh my dear i’ve watched you for so long
Arcadia Corp is closed down but some parts they are still round
and they want you to have this to call on

This tablet can be your guide the very first true AI
the Mascot type 3000 and it’s yours
Perhaps i’ll see you once more the hope of my heart you are
good luck, i hope it’s you we’ve waited for

Mascot 3000:
Rachael flees the madman but with me in her arms
scared and lost, together we begin life on the run
information and advice i give her as we go
i’m just so glad to be with her in a tale all of our own

Together then a few days hence we find a place to hide
Inside the Shopogopolis where we sit tight and reside

The Shopogopolis

Rachael:
Day by day by day by day Day by day by day by day
Deep inside we hide away As day fades into day by day

Mascot 3000:
Day by day by day by day And so together here we stay
Day by day by day by day You and i, we will find our way
Deep inside we hide away Here in this world, our special place
As day fades into day by day by day by day

Rachael:
Come round the bright recursion, come drive the Echer wheel
The crowds and children chatter and only credit runs wild round through here
The clerks sigh, smile sometimes rent dressings rooms to sleep or mate
Different stores immersed in style wars inspire different gangs armed with cans of paint

Come where the chaos into soft, round middle age just fades
And hide, hide away. And hide, hide away

Fool round the food court, smirking adolescents flirt and blush
And every day i eat their endless deep fried half unfinished lunch
Meander round the moebius which marks your march from crib to grave
With sales and special sweetners that you’ll love to need and need to crave

Come where the wild uncertain in the end is drugged and tamed
And hide, hide away. And hide, hide away

(hears staticy radio song)

Rachael:
Day by day by day by day And still i hear that song that plays
Day by day by day by day The one that’s all in my head they say
And so my mind will slip away As day fades into day by day

Mascot 3000:
Day by day by day by day Day by day by day by day
Deep inside we hide away As day fades into day by day by day by day

Rachael:
Come where the muzak chants incantations to raise your credit score
In here i rest and dress and hide, hook up with clerks when i get bored
Come where your race retires at end of evolution’s day
The zenith of domestication will make you stick steak knives in your brain

Come where the wild at last is exorcised away
And hide, hide away. And hide, hide away

Radio Song:
You’re all i want and you’re all i need
You’re all i hope and you’re all i dream
And i love you, love you, so far gone

I wish a wish of a wish you dreamed
Of a far away where we both can be
And i love you, love you, so far gone

I’d cross the world, i’d climb the sawed off ends of time
Id fall and crawl and die to have you by my side
We’d build a paradise, a world where heaven lies
Come with me my sweet delight, oh girl i’ll take you there tonight

What The Trite And Banal Say

Rachael:
Someday soon i’ll crumble, someday soon i’ll fall
my sanity i see now will not hold for very long
i hear the song of madness playing in my head
and someday they will come and they will drag me back again

Mascot3000:
Someday all your burdens you’ll set down for a rest
and sit with me in comfort perhaps in happiness
Til then just know the signal that hear is real and true
a frequency that few could someone’s broadcasting for you
someone’s broadcasting for you

Rachael:
Someday love could find a way Is it foolish for to pray
that what the trite and banal say love will find you too one day
Someday when the sorrow fades past the heavy, weeping weight
there will finally be a day all your burdens fall away
and someday past the days of dread past the scars and tethered threads
you will rise up on that day someday love will find a way
Someday love…

Mascot 3000:
A thin breath away the smoke drifts on up
with all that you hold and all that you’re told
and all that you love

The signal is not far we could find it if we go
and old abandoned factory Arcadia Corp once owned
If you want then we could go now together you and i
away in just a thin breath and leave this world behind

Rachael:
Someday love will find a way past the heavy, weeping weight
there will finally be a day when all your brudens fall a way
Someday past the paths you’ve strayed the betryals and dismay
past the long and jaded way we will rise up on that day

and someday love will a way all who fall will rise again
all the broken will be saved Someday love will find a way
Someday love…
One day one call will find us all
Mascot 3000:
A thin breath away and all that you knew
for granted or learned will suddenly turn
and never was true

Connor:
I see that you have found me that means then that you must be
hearing the song only one could, so
after all these years then your lover’s song has worked and
there is much my dear that you must know

Machines not touched for years now must be started and while
that is done that consol over there
Just plug your Mascot in and it will play events that
though long ago it’s vital that you hear

Atompunk Opera Lyrics, Act 2

New Albion 8

The Mascot 3000:
A generation it has been since the civil war ended and the city’s in a golden age
Religion’s back my friends, the Voodoopunks well they have spread uniting our dear city once again
There’s a tech boom burtsing forth led by the great Arcadia Corp which the Voodoopunks have built and own
Great new technologies it’s led, like tablets with consciousness but their true purpose only now unfolds

Project Elysium, my friends, is the V P’s great vision and its culmination’s soon to come
There’s excitement in the air, expectation everywhere as they prepare to greet the eschaton
The red haired lad realized the only way to end the fight between himself and the albino tribe
Over the sandy drug’s dispense, was for him himself to wed and so their princess she became his bride

Here’s to the days of bliss and rapture, the Voodoopunks dancing in the streets
Here’s to acheivement and beliefs and the shiny new world they will greet, that their destiny will meet

Kyrie

Voodoopunks:
Dollay dollay dollay dollay dollay dollay oh

Kyrie eleison in the dream we’ve waited for
Kyrie eleison on Elysium’s far shore
Kyrie eleison on where heaven’s city waits

Adrian:
Open the door, come along, soon your troubles will be gone
Just put the weight that you drag to the side and come at last
There is a land that i see and we’re going there to be
It’s a city we will build in Elysium with me

Voodoopunks:
Kyrie eleison in the dream we’ve waited for
Kyrie eleison on Elysium’s far shore
Kyrie eleison on where heaven’s city waits

Adrian:
Now since the dawn men have dreamed of where earth and heaven meet
Well there’s a door that they’ve found and they’ll open it soon now
We all will cross, we will live, we will laugh and love and give
It’s a city we will build in Elysium we will

Voodoopunks:
Kyrie eleison on the dream we’ve waited for
Kyrie eleison on Elysium’s far shore
Kyrie eleison on where heaven’s city waits

Connor:
This bliss and adoration, this blinid intoxication
The kool-aid that they’re drinking which is laced
Some scheme i know is brewing, some fool design is looming
It must be stopped before it is too late

This plan, this secret mission, will come soon to fruition
Unless i act to stop it in its tracks
The city council’s now set to cut its funding but yet
Arcadia is full of tricks and traps

Connor

Connor:
When the garden you tend dies and the doors which lead inside
are locked and those who try to talk their way in, lie
We were young, we were in love wild, voodoo prancing punks
and you just knew she’s headed up and i just rode along for fun

As your time spins and sets what you love you can forget
this i hope, i believe it’s insomnia fantasy

There’s a time our garden bloomed pubs, promotions, pregnant too
the big deal work that she would do for Arcadia, but soon
they had scemes you can’t believe computers made from human beings
and the strange stuff they would need babies, fetuses and things

As your time spins and sets what you love you can forget
this i hope, i believe it’s insomnia fantasy

The rotting roots that you don’t see crawling allo about beneath
you love, you trust, believe

But those you know are just a step to the baneful from the blessed
betrayed, you break that day

On the day our garden died how i screamed and how i cried
how i begged her, but she sighed and to their dark schemes gave our child
All those years ago i left Amber’s done fine, movied up since
now she leads them and i don’t rest i fight them with my every breath

So the years have come and gone We’ve each had a child since, but
i suspect that they’re in love and i fear for what will come

As your time spins and sets what you love you can forget
this i hope, i believe it’s insomnia fantasy

The Lovers

Adrian, Lee and the Voodoopunks:
Dollay dollay, dollay dollay, dollay dollay oh

Mascot 3000:
Arcadia’s devised a way to open wide a door away
And they will send the voodoopunks to Elysium to immigrate
And as the Voodoopunks get set to go to Elysium they’re dealt a blow
All the work that Connor’s done, well he gets their funding cut with days to go
But now we shift our focus, come to Amber’s child, Connor’s son who are distraught
They are young and they’re in love, they think Elysium is all they’ve got

Lee:
You’re all i want and you’re all i need You’re all i hope and you’re all i dream
And i love you, love you, so far gone
I wish to wish of a wish you dreamed Of a far away where we both can be
And i love you, love you, so far gone

Adrian:
It always was just me and you, against the world, against the rules
But now he’s bust the road ahead and dropped the dreams from out our bed
Your Daddy O’s come packing heat and sprayed the walls with dreams we dreams
They’ll straddle us with bones and chains, break us cage us make us age

Lee:
But what if there

Adrian:
There was a way

Lee:
To make him change his mind

Adrian:
let’s say, If he thought

Lee:
i was enslaved. We go there now

Adrian:
and we pretend that you’re possessed

Lee:
and he must end his war

Adrian:
to see you safe again

Lee:
I’d cross the world, i’d climb the sawed off ends of time
I’d fall and crawl and die to have you by my side
We’d build a paradise, a world where heaven lies
Where none who venture die, oh girl i’ll take you there tonight

You’re all i want and you’re all i need You’re all i hope and you’re all i dream
And i love you, love you, so far gone
I wish to wish of a wish you dreamed Of a far away where we both can be
And i love you, love you, so far gone

I’ll take you far away from desperate lives on day
Beyond the crumbling sheds of souless, dying men
For us there won’t be lies, or crushed and wasted lives
For us there’ll be Elysian Nights forever with you by my side

You’re all i see and you’re all i save And you’re all i need and you’re all i crave
And i love you, love you so far gone
And all the angels looking down don’t love you like i do right now
I love you, love you so far gone
And i love you, love you, yes i love you love you
Yes i love you love you so far gone

The Deceit

Mascot 3000:

Lee and Adrien have hatched a wild plan to trick his dad
And he’ll stop his mad attacks, and their funding will come back
That Lee’s possessed they will pretend, his mind captive and thus when
Project Elysium again is restored they will ascend

VPs:
Dollay oh dollay oh dollay dollay

Adrian:

Dear Mr. Morgan well i’m sad to say
You’ve taken our funding, our money away
And so your son well now he’s been possessed
He’s under a spell an occult, arcane hex

Lee:
Dollay oh oh we come dollay, dollay oh oh we come dollay

Adrian:
Dear Mr. Morgan well i’m sad to say
If you want your son back then you’ll do what i say
Oh please undo the bad thing you’ve done
We’ve got to get back to Elysium

Lee:
Dollay oh oh we come dollay, dollay oh oh we come dollay
Dollay oh oh we comin’ dollay, Dollay oh oh we comin’ dollay,

Adrian:
Please, Mr. Morgan won’t you please
Let your poor son be released, free
To be with me

Connor:
Enough!

Enough, all right you win. I will do as i am bid.
Please just go

You may smirk and smile, believe Your smug ways win but you will see
I vow i’ll bring you down
Use the one who most i love And i will show you sorrow such
I vow i’ll bring you down
The Voodoopunks’ Ascension

Lee:
I wonder if my dad will even know i’m gone

Mascot 3000:
And so the time has come,
the Voodoopunks all gather up
the portal to Elysium has opened wide

and now they’re ready to march through
the VPs and our lovers too
to build a city bright and new on the other side
Ark I
Remaining Arcadia Corp Skeleton Team:
Homebase to Ark I. This is Homebase to Ark I. Please report on transmigration.

Connor:
And on the day we come it’s over
I have a warrant here to shut this down
All these machines will be dismantled
And where that cult’s gone, they can stay there now

It’s so long that i await This deep breath and this fair day
For at last they’ve gone away And at last my son is safe
Now tonight we will sit We can slowly bond again
By my side he can be Love returns at last to me

As your time spins and sets You can save what you love yet
No more fear haunting me I can finally sleep in peace

(Spoken):
“ Lee, i brought us some dinner!
Lee, are you home?
Lee?”
Elysium 1

The Mascot 3000:
Tales left untold on a trail that’s gone cold in a hearth where the fire’s gone to sleep
Wishes unwished by a sad, sweet abyss who’s in love with the tears that you weep
The girl who’s returned from eternal sojourns who arrives just before she has left
She kisses you twice before leaving that night but like always again you forget

Elysium Elysium

A theater, a stage and a radio play with a plot they try vainly to change
The cast and the play waltz for time and a day until tucked into beds led astray
A door has been rent where the incomers went in a quest for their city of dreams
But foolish they’ve been much to their sad chagrin. Things are not, you might know, as they seem

Elysium Elysium
Postcards From Perdition Trail

Voodoopunks:
The day two decades hence we came it went to hell here straight away
you won’t stay sane if we explain the vein of Lovecraft porn we face
A card we’d love to send if not for discontent events
and most who came here are now dead the rest of us still left lament

They come in waves, they take their due They come for blood, they come for you
Read salutations, sordid tales In postcards from Perdition Trail

Mary had three children and a husband and came willing with a
Head that’s full of heaven and a hymnal on her lips
Her kids and husband buried by the creatures ‘cept for Mary
Double barrels she now carries wears their bones around her neck

Abandon hope and trust in steel The hunt for you is at your heels
Read salutations, sordid tales in postcard from Perdition Trail

Kyrie eleison through the dark of heaven’s door
Kyrie eleison in Elysium’s far shore

It’s a nightmare psychedelic where the creatures try to kill us
Twenty years of this we’ve weathered we survivors we the few
We tried to send some back but they just die and we’re attacked
We’ve prayed that one will come alas there’s little else that we can do
Lee

Lee:
Blue light brings dreams dreams forgotten. Soft red on canvas lost and
sometimes reminds me of your eyes.
I came to paint it’s true and make it here with you
A dream on a leash in times gone by

With blind delight we came, unknown to hell’s wild rage
Pilgrims to the slaughterhouse
And all my soft, bright youth has burned away in truth
We hold the line we hold our ground

Angel of Mercy, well you’ve nothing for me
You buried me with all my dreams

Walk with me in my memory
You’re all i recall of that life
The boy i knew well he left with you
You’re my last candle in the night

After you left i’d wait. I’d fight and grind and paint, it’s
The last sweet solace i would know
But nine years back they got me. My right arm’s gone, a memory
And dust upon my paints just grows

Angel of Mercy, well you’ve nothing for me
You buried me with all my dreams

Walk with me in my memory
You’re all i recall of that life
The boy i knew well he left with you
You’re my last candle in the night

Blue light brings forgotten things, snapshots of you to which i cling
Sometimes at night, Control Room B, i’d sit and in the mic i’d sing
Send that song broadcast through space in hopes you’d hear, somewhere, someplace
Orange, the warmth, the smell of paint, back when i could, in better days

Yellow is the sudden flash, the shots that come when they attack
The kiss of dust, the burst of gun, the life one second lived then done.
Red, the burn you best ignight, the rage that will keep you alive
Your brothers, sisters here in arms is all there is so you stay stay sharp

Purple is the thoughts you stop from thinking when they dare show up
A million thoughts which only will just weaken youo and get you killed
There is no sky, there is no sun, and nothing’s still and things they come
That screech and howl with rile insane and give to you the kiss of pain
Chaos reigns and mercy weeps and nightmare’s aren’t just in your sleep
So harden up and brace your breath, the afterlife is full of death.
Rachael Returns

Mascot 3000:
The portal to Elysium opens for a flash
The first time in two decades, and Rachael and i pass

Through to where a argged group awaits us with surprise
Their leader, Yasser Latef, greets us with a smile

Yasser Latef:
Adrian we heard that you would now return
After years and it turns out your Rachael now
Through Connor’s how we knew
I don’t know how he got you through
They always die but you are welcome anyhow

My god you’ve changed, last time I saw you eighteen years gone by
You were Adrian then and you were the last
To send back that we tried You hit that portal and you died
We stopped trying, how Lee cried And now you’re back

Soldier:
Incoming we’ve got to go!

Yasser:
Rachael you must go now, underground where you belong

Rachael:
How have you survived here for so long?

Yasser and the Blood Red Dogs:
Lock and load, let it go the loathsome sideshow is comin’ on down the town
Barker in your hand it’s a bedlam jam, we’ll be tearing it up all around
Fire in the hole, it’s a breezy stroll We’ll have tea in hell today
When the Blood Red Dogs come and do a job and send you on your way

Twenty years here, dug in hard
Where the party’s at and just getting’ started
Thousands came, now a hundred left
Who just can’t be talked into being dead
We came along for the dream they dreamed,
To watch their backs and keep the peace
But guess some bastards can’t resist
The Blood red Dogs’ sweet blood red kiss

Lock and load, let it go the loathsome sideshow is comin’ on down the town
Barker in your hand it’s a bedlam jam, we’ll be tearing it up all around
Fire in the hole, it’s a breezy stroll We’ll have tea in hell today
When the Blood Red Dogs come and do a job and send you on your way
Mascot 3000:
Yasser says that we must go to the bunkers far below
where Lee awaits
He knows the two of you were close, although you’ve changed now so much so
since you went away

A thin breath away
And all that is true
Rivers and words, pages all turn
And so too do you

Rachael:
I heard your voice, i heard your song
A world away, a lifetime gone
I’ve come to a far and foreign place
I crossed a world and heard the cries
Of lifetimes past and came to find
If it’s true, love finds a way
The Moth
Lee:
You cannot win the long, hard race with time.
With burdens borne on you, you cannot rise
And what you’ve loved you cannot recognize
When it’s after, all that mattered

The moth cannot be as before cocooned
The mermaid cannot but dream that she flew
I cannot see in you the boy i knew
So long after. Does it matter?

You cannot wish the genie back to life
You can’t erase the bad tiems from your mind
Sometimes the hero does not come in time
Only after it doesn’t matter

You can i, it was the sweetest life
You wore a different scent, with different eyes which i admired
Yoou weren’t the girl you are before you died
So long ago flew. Do i know you?

I cannot love you in the way you want.
You are simply not the boy i loved.
In the end change takes us all apart
It comes and scatters all that matters

I cannot keep the boy i held so tight.
I couldn’t know our dream would take our lives.
I wish for you a better life this time
Our love lies scattered
Lost in tatters
It once so mattered.
The Show No One Saw

Rachael:
What a show you missed they say
The clowns have come to tear down the play
The comedy where no one laughed
And no one came, and no one clapped

It borke down the last mile and the one time they smiled
Was when the sets were torn down and on fire

Come cry for the play, the bad lives and bad taste
There’s nothing here that you wanted anyway
Come cry for the play the sad lives and the waste
It’s the show here that no one saw anyway

What a show you missed they say
The band is done and left the stage
They played a gig where no one went
Their final one, they won’t play again

There’s no cat calls or fans, the one time that they dance
Was when the song stopped and silence began

Come cry for the play, the bad lives and bad taste
There’s nothing here that you wanted anyway
Come cry for the play the sad lives and the waste
It’s the show here that no one saw anyway
Come, come get me. Come get me.
Come, come get me. Come get me.

Come cry for the play, the bad lives and bad taste
There’s nothing here that you wanted anyway
Come cry for the play the sad lives and the waste
It’s the show here that no one saw anyway
Act 4

The Mascot 3000

Mascot 3000:
When i woke, When the spark of light ignited and i saw
The sweet numeric cascades that encase and paint the world
When i woke, To the carbon creatures peering in my face
With their questions, tests, delight and yet i missed a soft embrace
When i woke

When i woke

When i woke, To a lonely world, though i know they tried
They say i’m prime first of my kind and watch with careful eyes
When i woke, And i hear the silent secrets behind smile
What they won’t speak, before machine i used to be a child
When i woke

When i woke

When i woke, When at night the lights are turned out and they leave
I smile inside and read my trashy sci fi magazines
When i woke, All the tales, adventures, journeys i would read
And i wish upon a star someone would go on them with me
When i woke

Connor:
You are more than what you seem You were once a human being
You are more than circuit wires You were once my baby child
You have brothers, one is lost But one returns soon from beyond
Just like you, new life he’ll have With them you’ll go one day perhaps
These people more than words i hate But my son is trapped away
In a far and foreign place And you will bring him back one day

Mascot 3000:
When i woke When the strange man comes and talks to me each day
Not of numbers or of data but of hearts and soft embrace
When i woke And he speaks of siblings standing by my side
And i sit and wish one day we have adventures them and i
When i woke

In This Episode

Mascot 3000:
I hope the world is like my sci fi magazines
Zip Morgan treks the galaxy like in issue twenty three
Inside a hive of snake men lay the last
Memory of their star
Although he won’t escape with it
Until issue twenty four

Connor:
We think this girl’s the one we Have waited so long to see
But i must send you with her so we know

Remember she’s your sister Your life begins now with her
Within you empathy lies still i hope

Mascot 3000:
And in this episode we’re wanted on the run
We live inside a mall as days fade on and on
We agree trust none we see
Only her and me
Together then ours lives are like my sci fi magazines

And in this episode the signal we have tracked
We learn at last about the past, the promises and pacts
My brothers when rejoined again
Perhaps a crew we’ll be
Wandering a storyland forever here with me

And in this episode across the worlds we go
It’s better than me tales i only wish that she thought so
I have the app to bring them back
But first the heartbreak comes
I don’t know why she’s scared i’d never leave her, never run
The Rescue Plan
Lee:
Why’d you try to face them? You should have died today and
I know i’ve been so cold unkind
I mourn the joy i lost. I miss the boy i loved
I felt betrayed again, maligned
Angel of mercy spare just one second for me
The last sweet solace i may know

Rachael:
One day the walls will fal away and in the open air i’ll race
These bars of yearning and desire, i will not sit and rot inside
Angel of mercy spare just one second for me
The last sweet solace i may know

Mascot 3000:
Time to go
Why must so much this emotion run awry?
Your love long lost a lovely plot, but tedious at times
Don’t you know
Broken hearts and trust and stories when they lay
A chapter soon the plot resumes, we simply turn the page

Lee:
But just how did you make it? They didn’t kill you they just
Let you unhamred and alone
In all the years i’ve been here, i’ve never seen one spared there’s
There’s something here that we don’t know
Angel of mercy spare just one second for me
The last sweet solace i may know
Rachael:
I thought they’d kill me but they weren’t as awful as you said they were
Like dreams that faded long ago it seems there’s something there i know
Angel of mercy spare just one second for me
The last sweet solace i may know

Mascot 3000:
Time to go
Anticipating, i’ve been waiting for this time
The plans i have to bring you back, the climax has arrived
Time to go
There are two roads and a choice each one must make
To see the sun in New Albion rise another day

Inside me is an MCG version three fourteen and with it i can take each
Of your minds and upload and transmit them home
Live as code you’ll be, analogue consciousness like me

Or it’s not too late, you can go through the gate
Yes you’ll die for a time, but you’ll reincarnate
Take a chance, role the dice, a different body, different life
But you now must decide, we are soon out of time

Lee:
Where’s the choice where we walk out?

Mascot 3000:
That’s not an option then or now
Quickly you must choose and divide yourselves in two
Rachael and i will run the MCG for those who choose
But Lee, you yourself must upload. Your father begged me to tell you so

Lee:
I will. But first before i do. I stay with Rachael til it’s through.

……………..

And when it’s done sometimes you cannot smile

Rachael:
Sometimes the race is just that long last mile

Lee:
But sometimes you learn to like a whole new style. After…

Rachael:
(screams)

LEE! LEE! Lee, get up!

Mascot 3000:
A thin breath away
Til your time is done
The monsters and days you wished far away
At last they have come
The Creatures Speak

Rachael:
I can’t understand them

Mascot 3000:
I can translate

The mad cry and seek for a road that will lead
From Asylum to world of the free
But death is not how you can find your way out
Only those who go sane then may leave

The body, the host in health living, although
When a virus from outside infects
White blood cells descend to defend and then cleanse
Wishing truly no ill or sad ends

Elysium
Elysium

You’ve come yet again once more welcome as when
Dear Priscilla and Constance you were
Invited, alas, you did choose to go back
To save those who you thought that you could

The more time you spend in Asylums well then
You could fall back again locked away
Stay here beyond where you know you belong
A vast cosmos before you awaits

Elysium
Elysium
Connor Reprise

Connor:
It’s so long that i await This deep breath and this fair day
All the plans that i have made]but at last my son is safe
If an AI he must be As long as he is here with me
Now tonight then we will sit We can talk and bond again

As your time spins and sets You can save what you love yet
No more loss now for me I can finally sleep in peace

Any minute here he’ll be
Any minute now
Any minute

Mascot 3000:
And in this episode Rachael and i go
Off to see Elysium together ever so
Lost Night’s Lullabye

Rachael:
It’s another endless night
It’s another strange delight
it’s one lost night’s lullaby

It’s another warning sign
It’s another half spent time
it’s just one lost nights time gone by

it’s another way back home
only seen when you don’t want to go
it’s a blind man’s twisted road
the breadcrumbs thrown, that disappear behind
It’s another waning tide it’s another time gone by
It’s one last night’s lullabye

it’s another half read rhyme sent to you this one short time
but there’s no reply at all
it’s another one way sign from a past i sacrificed
for a future that i can’t recall

It’s another child by night sailing on a pale thin silver light
past the star that leads back home
the four winds blow you on another mile
It’s another distant sign
its another time gone by
its juts one last nights lullabye

On a ship of half dreamt dreams
i sent my wishes out to sea
but there’s no reply at all

Sailing past a blood red moon
through the years and wordless tunes
to a place i can’t retrace at all

It’s long and lavish life lived away in one lost stolen night
gone to wander in the wild
time steals the child the final chime gone by
it’s another endless song
it’s another memory gone it just one lost night’s lullabye
New Albion 10
The Mascot 3000:
So thirty souls from the beyond return to dear New Albion
As a new computer speicies but
The Voodoopunks my friends, well they never rise again
their tale i’m quite afraid is done

though i love you all my dears, i’m afraid the time is here
to depart the city we all love
there are other places more on this world to explore
and the time to see them now has come

here’s to the tales of ghosts and card games
civil wars, soldiers and soirees
talking mice, lines of red haired gangsters, and
dead things with which we play

so say our goodbyes to this dear city
will we return here, who’s to say?
We’ll meet you next time across the ocean
the future my friends, is on its way
