Peter McMullin The intro to Good Night Universe has been the sign-off track used by David Marsden (nythespirit.com) for several years. I wanted to hear the whole song, and discovered a great album. I want this song played when I finally put on my wings. Favorite track: Good Night Universe.

Sweet music, soft rythmn, satisfy your soul. It could be, Sex Drugs, Junk Food, or Rock and Roll. And if I asked the question "what's it all about?" I know, yes I know. Sunshine, have a picnic in the countryside. It could be, fast cars, hot woman take you for a ride? And if you answered my question, would I find out? 'Cause I know, do you know? We got, Pop music on MTV, Sweet beauty of the Galaxy. We got, all kind a' thing, for you to do... As if that ain't enough for you. And if I chose to answer, "All of the above". Would I know, do you know? Do You Know the Meaning of Life? We All Know the Meaning of Life.

Earthlight, Starlight reflected in your eyes Safe and warm, soft and slow Float around in Zero Gravity. Soundless, drifting the softness of your touch the only two in the Universe You and me, in Zero Gravity. Make love in Zero Gravity.

Mad Magazine 04:42
I've got a problem, please don't think that I'm bad. I just can't live without my issue of MAD. A dose of Alfred, and a shot of Max Korn Is all it takes to make me glad I was born. If I had one Dumb wish, I'd just wanna be a part of that scene... You can take my car You can steal my guitar You can take my spleen, but don't take away my Mad Magazine. I've got a Berg's Eye View, and Spy Vs. Spy I've got the Usual Gang of Idiots to get me high I've got madmag.com and MAD TV I got a TV commercial we'd like to see So don't fold me In, I think you, know what I mean... You can take my car You can steal my guitar You can take my spleen, but don't take away my Mad Magazine. I need my Letters and Tomatoes, and I need to know Alfred E. Neuman and my good friend Monroe There's a Gap-Toothed Idiot on my Periodical What, me worry, I got my Special I'd like to thank Bill Gaines, for making my life so keen... You can take my car You can steal my guitar You can take my spleen, but don't take away my Mad Magazine.

Outside 04:27
Turn the dial, slip inside, spreading wide. Splitting Muons, stepping through, stretching time. Klein bubble, softly glowing, while we take our precious time. Outside the, light is dying, all is calm before the storm. Inside, we're suspended, in a state of, anticipation. Outside, of all creation, the show's about to begin. Can't blink now, or we'll miss it, the first act of, the Universe. Suddenly all, Hell breaks loose we're, surrounded by, the Devils Eye... All the Suns, that will ever be, beautiful, beyond description. Time begins in, the blink of a mind we're, surrounded by the, Creators eye...

What secrets will the future reveal? The past lies behind us. They pale beside the beauty I feel. And the clock ticks on endlessly... Take me back to when it all began. Hold the Future in the palm of my hand. The past, lies ahead of us, seems so unreal. And the clock stopped a long time ago... You are Too beautiful You are Too beautiful You're far too strange for me to understand. Much too powerful, to command. If you weave your way, into my mind. We can leave this world, behind. You are Too beautiful to describe Too beautiful You are The Universe and I'm just a man. Wanting to know you any way that I can. You hold my Future in the palm of your hand. And the clock ticks on endlessly... Again. You are Too beautiful to describe. Too beautiful

You're being screwed by the powers that be. If you don't believe it then listen to me. May sound corny but your vegetable soup, could be the new Frankenstein monster. Your genes may be blue, you may be too, find out what government's doing to you. A rat in a cage, you should be outraged. at the suit from the grocery store. Chromosome. Syndrome. In years gone by, we had thalidomide babies, Smokers still die, the drug laws are crazy. Alcohol's great, mary jane is insane. And modified genes permeate through your brain. Elected officials should be working for you, instead they're corrupting, and poisoning food. only the government comes out a winner, as far as you know there is death in your dinner. Chromosome. Syndrome. Give me a break, get out of my breakfast, At least let me choose which poison I use. Don't put me in jail if I have a few tokes, Don't force me to eat agricultural jokes, A time and a place for experimentation, This isn't it, stop genetic manipulation. Chromosome. Syndrome.

Single mother struggles on welfare Three little children under her care The youngest one Crayons on the wall Building burns to ground, the wall was all they found Sold to the gallery for 4 million pounds Original drawings by, the artist at four Einstein was a failure in grade two He was a great, one of the few They called him slow Insults took their toll His great mind would never rest, always did his very best We all know what happened here He worked hard, without fear We hope dreams turn out well In the life we create Then leave it to fate Only time will tell Little girl, sits staring at the stars Dreams she'll fly the first spaceship to Mars Father has a fit Tells her to 'forget about it' Quietly the girl persists, following her life-long bliss Graduates from school one day Gets in her ship and blasts off We hope dreams turn out well In the life we create Then leave it to fate Only time will tell Your dreams are yours, don't let them blow away Hold onto them, you may be great one day Don't let fear win Go for it! Begin! Some may try to stop you, but just do what you do No failures here, time will see you through and we all wish you well But only time will tell

When the spell is cast Drift into the past. The long lonely life. If I find you there Will I have time to spare. How long will it last? Take a walk through time Not knowing what you'll find, what is to come. We'll live forever on Won't miss you when you're gone, so come on. Collecting Icons. From the Past. Directing Photons. Into the Past. You lived a special love. I lived another life. Until I found you. You were a mystery A part of History. Now life starts anew. Take a walk through time Not knowing what you'll find, what is to come. We'll live forever on Won't miss you when you're gone, so come on. Collecting Icons. From the past. Directing Photons. Into the Past.

When I saw you standing there On the launch pad with your, silver hair You mean so much to me Why do you have to go... Alpha-Centauri is so far away You won't be back for many thousand days I'll be much older and you'll still be young And I will miss you so... Will our love still last although you're light years away When you come home at last, will my hair be gray Will I know what to say, Will you still love me, or will time erase, all that we knew. But one things for sure, I will wait for you. As your ship rises into the night And becomes a tiny point of light I curse the memory of Einstien, what was he thinking of The laws of relativity, conspire to take my youth from me When you return will you remember me, my one true love Each day that passes takes you further away My tears won't change a thing, and who can say If I will still be here Will you still love me dear, or will time erase, all that we knew. But one things for sure, I will wait for you. When I get home, I turn the TV on The news report says your ship has gone Out of communication range of Earth, and passed the speed of light Turn off the tube and go to bed But still the questions echo through my head What will you find, and will you even come home again Will our love still last although you're light years away When you come home at last, will my hair be gray Will I know what to say, Will you still love me, or will time erase, all that we knew. But one things for sure, I will wait for you.

It's Good 06:31
I've been around the Sun, it was a lot of fun, and that's good. I'd do it all again, in a minute my friend, if I could. Well since I've been alive I've often been described as a fool. But I'm smart enough to know, that the stones they like to throw are not cool. Bad people bug me. Stay away from here. Good people, good friends. It's so nice to be back home again. It's good to be back home. Been away for a thousand years. It sure seems like more. It's so nice to be welcome here. So what are we waiting for? See the sunlight in your eyes. Hear the words that tantalize. No need to fantasize, we're home again. It's good to be back home.

Out of space Out of time Out of energy Out of rhyme All is said All is done All can wait For the morning sun. No more to do No more to say All tuckered out It's been a very long day. Goodnight Moon Goodnight Mars Goodnight Venus Goodnight Stars Goodnight Sweet Dreams Time now for bed Goodnight Sweet Dreams See you again. Turn out the light, hold my hand, it's time to close your eyes. Don't walk away, come back to bed, night has come. Far away, in another Galaxy. There is someone getting ready for dreams. All is well, the darkness falls and nothing is what it seems. Before you fall asleep there's something I'd like to say. To everybody everywhere, Good Night. All across the Universe. Everybody's getting ready for dreams. All is well, I can tell, Let them know, that hope lives on, and I'm just glad, that you, are here with me. Say goodnight, say goodnight to the Universe.
