about

A sober look at the 1950's American Golden Age and the misguided notion of science and technology saving the world; that nuclear power will solve all our energy problems and that happiness comes through prosperity and accumulation of wealth. It also questions our present obsession as a society to return to those illusionary days.

Track Name: Atomic
We are Atomic (Atomic)
We are Atomic (Atomic)
We are Atomic (Atomic)
We are Atomic (Atomic)

A Golden Age
The Nuclear Age begins
Nations rise
Economies thrive – and dive

We are Atomic (Atomic)
We are Iconic
We are Atomic (Atomic)
We are Bionic

Rock’n roll
America’s soul - skin deep
Androids dream
A living machine - they sleep

We are Atomic (Atomic)
We are supersonic
We are Atomic
A memory of a post-war dream
We are Atomic (Atomic)

Will we begin
To feel the sin within
And open eyes
How far we've come, so little done

We are Atomic (Atomic)
We are cybertronic
We are Atomic
A remnant of the post-war dream
We are Atomic - most ironic

Let's go!
Track Name: Minimalia
This song is minimal
My life is minimal
You are all minimal
We all speak minimal

This world is minimal
I say it's criminal
You say one syllable
And I'll be invisible

Yes I may be culpable
But my life is minimal
So I can't be blameable
This friendship's unsustainable

This song is minimal
My life is minimal
You are all minimal
We all speak minimal
Track Name: Radio Atlantis
A static whisper
A distant hum
Phantom signals, wavelengths chime
Hidden from the sun
Beneath the sea
Way down below
Ancient music coming
From your radio

Radio Radio Radio Atlantis
Radio Radio on Radio Atlantis
Calling you, calling through, Radio Atlantis
Wonder of the seven seas, Radio Atlantis

The ocean hides
A secret clue
A future race of knowledge great
A culture seen by few
Submerging saucers
Come and go
Distant signals coming
To your radio

Radio Radio Radio Atlantis
Radio Radio on Radio Atlantis
Calling you, calling through, Radio Atlantis
Wonder of the seven seas, Radio Atlantis

Atlantis
Atlantis
Atlantis
Atlantis

The music pulses
A heavy sound
The rhythmic call, a tribal beat
Energy abounds
Technology and culture
Few will ever know
Frequency - 2 megahertz
On your radio

Radio Radio Radio Atlantis
Radio Radio on Radio Atlantis
Calling you, calling through, Radio Atlantis
Wonder of the seven seas, Radio Atlantis

Radio Radio Radio Atlantis
Radio Radio on Radio Atlantis
Calling you, calling through, Radio Atlantis
Wonder of the seven seas, Radio Atlantis

Track Name: Ionization
Up in the sky
A beautiful sight
Curtains of colour burst into the dark of night

Protector of life
A shield of light
Reflecting the cosmic bombardment with shimmering might

Ionization
Ionization is in the air
Ionization
Ionization is everywhere
Ionization
Ionization around the world
Ionization

A dazzling display
A heavenly ray
Stretching across the sky from pole to pole

Over the Earth
A cosmic delight
Aurora Australis the wavering Southern Light
Track Name: Radiation therapy
Each instant in time
Every moment of the day
A constant noise and rumble
Of atoms in decay

The wind will blow
A world in disarray
Bathed in seas and oceans
Of atoms in decay

Alpha, Beta, Gamma rays
Protons, neutrons and gravity waves

Cosmic rays and elements
May pierce your flesh and skin
The air is charged and glowing
Dazzling light from deep within

Alpha, Beta, Gamma rays
Protons, neutrons and gravity waves
Alpha, Beta, Gamma rays
Protons, neutrons and gravity waves

Radiation...... therapy - this is
Radiation...... therapy
Radiation...... therapy - this is
Radiation...... therapy
Track Name: Starsong
Star light, star bright
First star I hear tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Be the first to hear your song tonight

I turn my ear, hear the sound
Crashing waves reach the ground
All around the song surrounds
The roar of empty space abounds

A red dwarf, a neutron star
Thermonuclear orchestra
Sing with a resounding voice
The universe leaves me no choice

Star light, star bright
Three millionth star I hear tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Be free from all this noise tonight
Track Name: This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)

Here in this world today
No boundaries do I see
And now what is clear to me
Is life in this Great Age

…………………….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)… This Great Age

Sometimes I think about
The speed at which we all change
The pace of life goes flashing by
This life in this Great Age

…………………….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)… This Great Age

Here in this world today
No boundaries do I see
And now what is clear to me
Is life in this Great Age

…………………….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
This Great Age ….(this Great Age)… This Great Age
