Track Name: Clouds and Waterfalls
[Narrator: Joey Adams]

Clouds and waterfalls
Yes, the big man calls
Yes. he calls for you
But, you're so confused
Can't you tell me what you're good for

Don't go to the light my friend
Stay here in the dark with me
If we try we'll make it end
We can't stop the agony

You get no pity
Well, well not from me
You, you had your chance
But, you lost romance
Can't you tell me what you're good for

Don't go to the light my friend
Stay here in the dark with me
If we try we'll make it end
We can't stop the agony

You can try to hide
You can try to fight
You can try to listen
But you'll still be missing
You can try to see
But you're in agony
If we try we'll make it end

Clouds and waterfalls
Yes the big man calls
Yeah he calls for you
But you're so confused
Can't you tell me what you're good for
Track Name: Ukelele
[Narrator: Andy Welst]

(Ha ha [Smash] ha ha, whew)
So you thought it was a taze man
I see through the blood and haze man
I know what you're gonna say so let me take you there

No rhyme's, gonna make me forget
No talks gonna make me regret
Take you take you down to grave and let me take you there

Ukulele, ukulele
Ukulele, ukulele

Tough talk coming from the right man
No one is gonna win this fight man
I know what you're gonna say so let me take you there
No lies, but what I let you see here
Am I running from the scene dear
So I mustn't see what you see, let me take you there

Ukulele, Ukulele
Ukulele, Ukulele

It's just a little thing
There ain't no reason for it now
I see those wood and strings
Fall off your head and to the ground

[We have a 187, heading down the Santa Monica freeway, victim Joey Adams was killed with what appears to be a.. Ukulele. I'm following the suspect, Andy Welst down the freeway. He has crashed onto the side of the freeway... and he's not alone...]

It's just a little thing
There ain't no reason for it now
I see those wood and strings
Fall off your head and to the ground

Ukulele
Ukulele
Ukulele

[Suspect appears to be dead... no wait, he's breathing...]
Track Name: There's Nothing Left
[Narrator: Grandmaster]

Hello Mr. Jacket, White
You'd like to see why I'm here tonight
Well wouldn't you like to know
Now let me in or let me go

I know that I will never leave
As the sun starts fading away
And I could have made it
If I had my way
Running from my fears
Feels like years and years
All I read are tears
I got nothing left for me here

Turning every page
This book you threw away
It's mine and mine alone
Unless you do come home
I think I know but I
Want to re-deny
If I had just one word

I can't control what you do
If you're alive then let me through
Just have to wait for the door
But I've been in here for weeks before

I know what will and won't be
As the night turns into day
And dawn will never have me
Till I turn away
What else could I choose
Spend every day with you
Or be a living blues
Oh there's nothing left to lose

Is what I see what I am
And am I hanging on the lamb
I want to go back do it again
Next time around won't be a sin
oooh aaah
(Get your heads off the call)
oooh aaah
(Every time I break the fall)
oooh aaah
(Nothing stops or ends at all)
oooh aaah
(The bell has struck in towers tall)
oooh aaah
(Ha ha ha [indistinguishable])
Track Name: Grandmaster/Descent
[Narrator: Lar Bear]
See what was never meant to be seen by these eyes
No surprise
Hear what was never meant to be heard by these ears
No one near

And you're pardoned by the fool
Who stopped listening to you
And you're pardoned by the fool

Nothing is going to be alright if you don't go
No one shows
Everything is going to be a'flying 'round your room
No one knew

And you're pardoned by the fool
Who stopped listening to you
And you're pardoned by the fool

Grandmaster's son
Grandmaster's done
Grandmaster's son

And you're pardoned by the fool
Who stopped listening to you
Believes only what he sees
What was really meant for me

Grandmaster's son
Grandmaster's done
Grandmaster's son

I don't need to know what you're going though oh
You gotta let him go all alone
There's no need to fight it'll be over soon oh
You gotta let him go all alone
If you stand in his way
Every breath's a waste
He can't live today
Picking up the tastes
Life's not hard just long

Grandmaster's son
Grandmaster's done
You wanna fight for the no one
Grandmaster's son
Grandmaster's done
You wanna help give him a gun

If you are proud
Please don't speak now
Track Name: Welcome to the New World
[Narrator: Infinity Greenhouse]

Welcome to the New World baby
Here's your chance at life
With all the people at your will
Welcome to the New World baby
Won't you roll the dice
There is no way that you could lose
You can be anything you want to

You ran away from the day and yet stood still
Believed in magic in life but not your pills
Once a time once a place once you do grow taller
You'll feel the world around you growing smaller
And daddy says that when you get older
You will train to be a solider
But you really want to so that's alright

[Narrator: Lar Bear]
Welcome to the new world baby
Why would you wanna go home

[Narrator: Infinity Greenhouse]
Take a shot take a chance and listen to me
You wanna learn to live in eternity
Listen close I know it don't feel like a dream
You still have the same name for all to see
And you know that when you get sane
Read a page from your own brain
And know that nothing can be saved

Welcome to the new world baby
Is this life or death
Neither cause it's something in between
[Lar bear]
Welcome to the new word baby
You're not in my head
But you still know this is your place
To live without the human race
Welcome to the new world baby
[Grandmaster]
I don't wanna go home
Track Name: Children
[Narrator: Grandmaster, child]

The pool is deep you want to know
Where I hide, where I go
There is no way left to find
All these years out my mind
Is that good, is that fine
For a witch, without a wine
Singing tales, without an end
Going smooth, with the trend

Children laughing singing
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I want to know what's happening
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

Cause they're the only ones awake

Is there depth to a heart
Or is it cold with a start
Up to date with that kind
Of wasted words how that shine
No one cares, no one knew
Was it fair, was it true
That the way that you took
A father place than it looks

Children laughing singing
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I want to know what's happening
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
It's like I'm stuck in bad dreams
With more than enough it seems
I hear the children singing
Yeah,\ yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah

Searching for all that it takes

The pool is deep, full of time
Draining fast, not your kind
Think it's wrong, think it's a lie
Proven true time and time
Again for you, again for me
Here in tune with the seed
Like it cold, like it hot
Yesterday's here or not

Children laughing singing
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I want to know what's happening
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Swimming clear in the deep
Becoming only black sheep
I hear the children singing
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Track Name: Good old years (I wanna fly)
[Narrator: Grandmaster]

(I, well I feel the world has changed, the world is spinning
I, I don't know where to go)
(Clouds form around your face, clowns die for the human race)

[Narrator: Infinity Greenhouse]
Taking it in and you see
That the world will reflect you
And you know that your thoughts
Will spin round and a sound in your room

[Narrator: Grandmaster]
I know they can't see me
But they believe me (please believe me)
When I say it's all in my head (but it can't be)

Cause I wanna fly
(ah ha ha)
I don't wanna die (*cough*)

(Life transcends time)
[Infinity Greenhouse]
There is no more thought just a few years
Or not till you learn to
[Grandmaster]
(Till I lose my mind)
[Infinity Greenhouse]
Live in a place where you see
What it takes to give up soon

[Narrator: Grandmaster]
(Never)
I know they're not real (but they have to be)
But I need you to feel
Those eerie chills up down my spin

I wanna fly
(aaaaah)
I dont wanna die
Cause I wanna fly
Track Name: Safe
[Narrator: Grandmaster]

Life's a river always built for two
Flowing down for endless moons
Be safe, sorry I can't be with you
I cannot change, though I want to

Every time I close my eyes
See new worlds flash through and by
Everything is getting still
I know it's unexpected
But I still need you to know

I'm going off to fight the endless war
If I come back, you'll tell the world
When we're done and seen our run we go
That black light, where dreams do show

Everyone is wrong, I'm right
When heroes fall they catch the light
I don't know what's in the fight
I know it doesn't matter
But I still need you to know

I promise you that we'll be side by side
When we go down, nothing to hide
We will brake until we lose control
Of our own lives, of our own soul
Track Name: Encore
[Narrator: Grandmaster]

(Come on......damn it......eh, close enough)

[Narrator: Infinity Greenhouse]
Andy was a soul singing army man
With a smile on his face, six string in his hand
Running to his dreams, make a rock and roll band
Joey played the beats, Andy played guitar
Tommy played the bass, they're gonna go real far

[Narrator: Grandmaster]
See me now and then and I'll be a star

Woah oh do I really wanna know
Is this the way of rock and roll
Woah oh oh oh
Yeah it suits my soul

[Narrator: Infinity Greenhouse]
Pack it up, hitchhike down to L.A.
His mamma don't like it but what's she gonna say
Play one night, got signed the next day
Touring around the world big halls to fill
There's no time to live and yet time to kill

[Narrator: Grandmaster]
I am never dying till I've had my fill

Woah oh do I really wanna know
Is this the way of rock and roll
Woah oh oh oh oh
Yeah it takes its toll

[Narrator: Infinity Greenhouse]
Diamond watches big ass fancy cars
Life of a rocker, life of a radio star
Same as the last except you went real far
Climbing to the top couldn't get more high
You gotta clip your wings if you really wanna fly
Now you got your way, Joey didn't have to die

[Narrator: Grandmaster]
Woah oh do I really wanna know
Is this the way of rock and roll
Woah oh oh oh oh
Gotta sell my soul

(Yes!)
Track Name: The Grand Awakening
[Narrator: Andy Welst]

(Why would I ever wanna wake up, when I can make my own reality... in my new world)

Escape from gates of white
I thought of you every night
I knew that when I came back home
I'd be waiting all alone
Was it when we crashed
I knew you wouldn't last
I looked into your lifeless soul
And held your broken bones

And then they came and took me away
And then I heard those sirens say
That you had went and gone away
But there was still hope you would stay
And I knew that you were glad
Leading that life that we had
But we led a great life when I was mad
And found a son that we never had

The sirens at my door
I can't wait anymore
I thought that you would come back home
I've been waiting by my phone
But now it's time to go
Go high and I'll go low
I know where I am going to
And I hope I won't see you

And the voice that's all alone
That writes about my smoking bones
This voice that seems to live in me
That of infinity green
And the voice that's in my head
Of whoever wrote this song
I'll realize it when I'm dead
I was in his head all along
Track Name: Again
[Narrator: Andy Welst, Grandmaster's done]

I've been fooled again
No one knows my name
[Infinity Greenhouse]
Hear the songs I made
They all sound the same
[Andy Welst, Grandmaster's done]
I'll be traveling on
To a place without my living hope
I'll be fooled again
Once they know my name
[Infinity Greenhouse]
And you're caught in the moment with nothing to lose

[Narrator: Andy Welst, Grandmaster's done]
I've been fooled again
No one knows my name
Give me life or death
Till it's in my brain
I'll be long and gone
When you see that life's a sinking boat
Every time I sang
They would chant my name
[Infinity Greenhouse]
And you're caught in the moment with nothing to lose

[Narrator: Andy Welst, Grandmaster's done]
I've been fooled again
No one knows my name...
Name...name...name...

[Narrator: Grandmaster's son]
Grandmaster left and ran
From padded rooms white painted walls
He tried to live without a life
And them he had it all
I knew that when I looked
Into his house and saw him still
He'd be a living curse on
Any man who has his will

[Narrator: Infinity Greenhouse]
Heart beats strings
[Lar Bear]
Fingers bleed
Song beats talk
[Infinity Greenhouse]
Till it stops
Paper cuts
[Lar Bear]
Scissors shuts
[Infinity Greenhouse]
Life beats chalk
[Lar Bear]
Nothing beats rock

[Narrator: Infinity Greenhouse]
Running from the line
No one's left behind
Till the end of time
[Grandmaster]
Nothing's on my mind
[Infinity Greenhouse]
When you say goodbye
Take another sign
Till you free your mind
Run down to the line
[Grandmaster]
Everything is mine
When I'm in my mind
Life is just a sign
Darling it ain't kind
[Lar Bear]
Running from the scene
Leave it all to me
Take a look at he
He will live free

[Narrator: Grandmaster's son]
I hear the children singing
I hear the children singing
I hear the children singing
I hear the children singing
Yeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaah!

[Narrator: Infinity Greenhouse]
Grandmaster waited
So sedated, by his gun
He heard those voices
Sing his choices that he'd done
And when they talked
He said he couldn't have anymore
And then they found him lying dead
With his brains all over the floor
[Grandmaster]
Life transcends time
Till I lose my mind
