"This is the story of the Space Suit Man. He has checked out and launched himself into orbit. It is here that he feels safe to examine inner and outer space. The controllers are planning to bring him down. All was going according to plan until a large Asteroid was discovered heading towards earth."

Fred was born on a rock in the middle of space. He was a loner and had a rough childhood. He built a ship called Spacecraft 11. Fred launched himself into orbit around his planet. It was here that he reflected on his life experiences. He became aware of how his individual struggle could be related to his world's struggle at large. Fred was beginning to make a universal breakthrough. The controllers came to intercept his space craft. It was at this point a large Asteroid was discovered heading towards the planet.

Track Name: Mission Control
MISSION CONTROL-

We're on our own
Track Name: Space Suit Man
Space Suit Man

The night begins
It's time to win
Take your stand
Put on your space suit man
We are in the stars
We are far from Mars
We are in the stars
We are

We start again
Come on let's call your friends
This one really knocks me out
Hey, we're passing Jupiter now
We are in the stars
We are far from Mars
We are in the stars
We are far

I'd like to take the time to say hello
It's fun to see my space ship start to glow
Sometimes it gets so lonely, I should know
I'd like to take the time to say hello

The sun will shine
We can travel through time
I knew I could count on you
We built a ship and landed on Mars
We are from the stars
We are far from Mars
We are from the stars
We are far

I'd like to take the time to say hello
It's fun to see my space ship start to glow
Sometimes it gets so lonely, I should know
I'd like to take the time to say hello
Track Name: Another Place
Another Place

Come on take me to another place
I'm getting tired of the human race
There's no one behind the image

This masquerade's getting out of place
A certain death full of disgrace
Why leave with blood on your hands?

I can feel the universe
But what does it say to me?
Can I heal the universe inside me?
But what can I say to you?
Do you feel this too?
Can you even feel?
What am I saying to you?
Get out of my way!
Hey!
Track Name: The Creature
The Creature

Take me
I can hardly see in here
What is it that I'm supposed to know?
Take me
I can hardly breath in here
Which way am I supposed to go?

It's hard for me to grow through
The challenge of the unknown
I'll find a place to begin
See through the colors
The atmosphere is thin
Is it the same in your world?
What did I do?
I used to own a store and a fleet of
antique cars but now I'm a salesman selling condos
in the stars
In the stars
In the stars

Take me to your leader
You know I really need a breather
I'm moving back and forth
through space and time

Take me to your leader
All my friends have gone
My family has left me behind
All my friends have gone
My planet has left me to die
Track Name: Falling
Falling

I can't seem to hide, find the right tree
I will fly so high till I can see
Falling on the ground it will be
Why me? Why can't I be free?

My folks ate my mind plain to see
Now I run around blind but I can sing
Falling on the ground it will be
Why me? Why can't I be free?

Hey look at him he's on a mission man!
Keeps his memories in the sand
Cuts his nose and he slits his face
He'd shoot himself just to split this place
Challenge his reason and he's on the attack
Is it his mind? Can he ever come back?
Come Back - Come Back - Come Back!

When I turn to help he laughs at me
Thinks that when he's dead he'll find some peace
Falling on the ground it will be
Why me? Why can't I be free?
Heaven or Hell it's cruel which one should I be?
I want to shave my head and join the Marines
Falling on the ground it will be
Why me? Why can't I be free?

Hey look at him he needs permission man!
He lives according to his master plan
He cuts his nose and he slits his face
He'd shoot himself just to split this place
Challenge his reason and he's on the attack
Is it his mind? Can he ever come back?
Come Back - Come Back - Come Back!
Track Name: Spacecraft 11
Spacecraft 11

Like an asteroid headed for the earth
Like an asteroid headed for your heart
An accidental occurrence to bring us together
By setting us quite apart
You can keep your wars
Jealousy
Greed
Don't bother me
Like an asteroid
Like an asteroid
Don't bother me
Track Name: Asteroid Park
Asteroid Park

Now
We got miles to go but it's happening
Come in take a ride
Going inside out of your
mind
The entrance aint free
You already know
Just pretend to be you
Welcome to the show
Now
A hall of mirrors reflect illusion
Can I be satisfied?
Break down the walls of confusion
Open the door, step inside
Expression, points of view
A smiling face shrouds a veil
Track Name: Answer The Call
Answer The Call

Love calls you to answer
So answer the call

Some say love fades away
So answer the call

Hang on to your love
Answer the call

Love calls you to answer
So answer the call
Track Name: Beyond
Beyond

When I was a child
And things where small
The world was big
Imagination was tall
I lost the world to a dream
To know the other side of what it means
For I have come to know the fear of resistance

My mind fills with confusion and
I got to find a solution from the
Lies

Times have changed
Things are not the same
You're in a prison where there
Aren't any walls when you're
Sold to reach the vision of your dreams
The highest bid controls the ways and means
I have come to know the highs of persistence

My mind fills with confusion and
I got to find a solution

My mind is the institution and
I've got to find a solution
I chose the illusion
Track Name: Salvation Army Girl
Salvation Army Girl

Don't hesitate to donate
My body and brain
Coffee and doughnuts
The street bum's insane
Fat secretary, she called out my name
She said, "When things get hairy just flush him down the drain"
And change the way you feel
He hasn't learned how to steal
Like the bums in the street
Falling down at your feet

Cause it's stone cold and out of sight
She got the potion that takes me through the night
Her brand of lotion's gonna make it all alright
My hearts in motion and this aint my kind of fight

Salvation army girl
Can you hear me?
Salvation army girl
Will you come near me?
Salvation army girl
Will you endear me?
Salvation army girl
My head is leery

Don't hesitate to donate
My body and brain
Coffee and doughnuts
The street bum's insane
Fat secretary, she called out my name
She said, "When things get hairy just flush him down the drain"
And change the way you feel
And the flesh wounds are too real
He hasn't learned how to steal
Like the bums in the street
He hasn't learned how to steal
He hasn't learned how to steal
Like the bums in the street
Falling down at your feet
Track Name: I'm Having Visions
I'm Having Visions

Last night I walked the hallway
Wondering what to say
My attention falls shortly now
The old mans moved away
Feeling cold and shot down

Holding on to my breath
I drowning and I'm trying to scream
There's an echo in the confusion
There's a solid in the seams
There's water on the edge of town and it's
Boiling in my dreams
I'm having visions
Within my comfort zone
Within my comfort zone

Every night I just can't sleep
I'm falling apart at the seams
I'm having visions of dancing lights and
You where in my dreams
The panic of the stress is just out of sight

Holding on to my breath
I'm drowning and I'm trying to scream
My brain is frying in the transfusion and
You're standing there staring at me
I'm having visions
Within my comfort zone

Don't you know its never been easy
To tell you what I know
Don't you know it's never been easy
I gotta let it go
I'm having visions
I gotta let them go
Within my comfort zone
Within my comfort zone
Track Name: You're Alive
You're Alive

We can feel
It's time to move
We can feel
It's time to groove
We can put the past away and
Rock on
Walk on
Forge the day!
The sun is rising in the east and
You're alive!
Alive
Alive
You're alive
Track Name: Asteroid Park Reprise
Asteroid Park Reprise

A hall of mirrors deflecting choices
Blindly distorting my minds eye
Break down all form and communion
Never never satisfied
Draw your own conclusion in Asteroid Park
Secrets can never conceal reality
