Track Name: Never Been To Athens
I'm a man of many words
Though few have been said
I viewed them all perspectively
But hid them away in my head

I've never been to Athens
I've never been to Rome
Never been anywhere that ever felt like home
I never had a compass to show me the way
To the safety of your arms

Tethered to the Earth
In the shadow of my fears
I may have smiled
But I never met their eyes in twenty years

I've never been to Athens…

The wind rises and carries me
To the places I'd dreamt I'd be
I close my eyes, strengthen ties
And see your eyes right in front of me

I've never been to Athens…

I've never been to Venus
I've never been to Mars
I've never been some place
With so many stars
I drift of towards them
And find my own way
Can you see me, can you see me
Track Name: AL 424-15
100 years I've walked alone
Through fields of brick and bone
Where is my mother
Where is my maker
Where have all the humans gone

In the house where I use to live
A place to plug my cathodes in
Where is the mother
Where is the maker
Where have all the people gone

In the days before the bomb
Stayed inside to kept the home
They would protect me
In times of properity
In times before the Earth had died

Wait now wait, there is a message coming in
A voice familiar, cutting through the din
Singing sweetly to me
A voice of family
Could it be, could it be

Little AL424-15
I'd be there if I could If I were still alive
Be brave and find your way
Make it through another day
Hear my voice and you'll never be alone

Hush hush, mother's talking now
Track Name: Never Been To Athens - Planet Nibiru Remix
I'm a man of many words
Though few have been said
I viewed them all perspectively
But hid them away in my head

I've never been to Athens
I've never been to Rome
Never been anywhere that ever felt like home
I never had a compass to show me the way
To the safety of your arms

Tethered to the Earth
In the shadow of my fears
I may have smiled
But I never met their eyes in twenty years

I've never been to Athens…

The wind rises and carries me
To the places I'd dreamt I'd be
I close my eyes, strengthen ties
And see your eyes right in front of me

I've never been to Athens…

I've never been to Venus
I've never been to Mars
I've never been some place
With so many stars
I drift of towards them
And find my own way
Can you see me, can you see me
Track Name: Never Been To Athens - It's Gonna Crash Remix
I'm a man of many words
Though few have been said
I viewed them all perspectively
But hid them away in my head

I've never been to Athens
I've never been to Rome
Never been anywhere that ever felt like home
I never had a compass to show me the way
To the safety of your arms

Tethered to the Earth
In the shadow of my fears
I may have smiled
But I never met their eyes in twenty years

I've never been to Athens…

The wind rises and carries me
To the places I'd dreamt I'd be
I close my eyes, strengthen ties
And see your eyes right in front of me

I've never been to Athens…

I've never been to Venus
I've never been to Mars
I've never been some place
With so many stars
I drift of towards them
And find my own way
Can you see me, can you see me
