Track Name: Science & Charity
Things were moving very fast
We lifted off the earth and into space
And landed on the moon
You'd figure we would keep up he pace

Attitudes were changing fast
Some people wanted to give peace a go
Segregation ends
Who knew progress would still be so slow?

Where did the future go?
Where did the future go?
Where is the world built on Science & Charity?

To see the signs it seemed nearer
They pointed to a new era
But back then how could we know
We'd see the signs and not follow?

Where did the future go?
Where did the future go?
Where is the world built on Science & Charity?

Where did the future go?
Where did the future go?
Where is the world built on Science & Charity?
Track Name: Welcome to the Institute
You've been a bad boy and not overjoyed to be branded with sin
We'll help you employ a look you'll enjoy and shed that old skin

Welcome to the Institute
The Reinvention Institute
Welcome to the Institute

You've been a bad girl, there's fire where there's smoke there's little doubt
We don't care about that; you've pissed off some folk we'll airbrush it out

Welcome to the Institute
The Reinvention Institute
Welcome to the Institute

The web is our world we tend and shape it
We are the one who trim and rake it
Rile or placate it
And for a price we'll help you fake it

Welcome to the Institute

Track Name: Saturn's in Transit
Saturn's in transit he's gone again
He's there for you but you don't know when
For several chapters you're broke and then
On the next page a golden age

Saturn's in transit he's back again
One day we'll say we remember when
We'll look back and miss him but then again
At this stage it's a golden age

Saturn's in transit
Saturn's in transit

We'll hit all his favorite spots when he's in town
Let the Ambrosia flow let good fortune abound

Saturn's in transit but it depends
He's often around when you're on the mend
Learning to learn and you set a trend
To engage a golden age

Saturn's in transit
Saturn's in transit
Saturn's in transit
Track Name: Mr. Winters
Mr. Winters (Ian M Roure)

Summer recedes and so the Autumn brings the sweet and bitter, the cuddle and the shiver

And one day you find you're forced to greet the new arrival; the transition is final

Mr. Winters, Mr. Winters, won't you please be so kind - Mr. Winters, Mr. Winters, show us what's on your mind

Keeping the faith through new eyes you follow the younger vision, and fill in the omissions

And you see the last reign so much closer than the first, you'd prefer it reversed

Mr. Winters you're on time
Arriving on the cold December tide
Mr. Winters come what may please make a little Summer stay...
Track Name: Images of Christmas
mages of Christmas (Ian M. Roure)

I fell into an old instamatic snap
Through the dyes and emulsions to Christmas past
The stereo played Winter Wonderland
As the reel to reel turned, rum & cokes in hand

Christmas cards tucked into the beams
Toasting the things we’d hoped would be
Sitting with George & Audrey & Grandma Lucy
Those lost to us now
Are all found inside these Images of Christmas

Greeting you at the door is your auntie Rose
She’s the queen of the party, and she knows…

Dressed in our gifted finery,
Watching the Queen on the T.V.
Send out the searching party; bring the Bacardi, Saint Bernard & cask
‘Cause I’m lost inside these Images of Christmas
Evening at the Ericsons', after supper’s done
Doreen played the ivories and carols they wuz sung…

Dressed in our gifted finery,
Watching the Queen on the T.V.
Send out the searching party; bring the Bacardi, Saint Bernard & cask
‘Cause I’m lost inside these Images of Christmas
