Song Description

a future of uncertainty where even a safe haven cannot be found off planet. The timely Fly Girls: Ellen Ranney - backup vocal Jane Godfrey - backup vocal

Story Behind the Song

A story inspired by the sci-fi novel: Neuromancer - William Gibson, borrowing an idea or two and also inspired by Walter & Donald.


After tonight, I'm on my own
The shuttle to Mizar Five lifted hours ago
Been burning my bridge since I arrived
Down in the Sprawl, no one gets out alive.
The few I know 've found a way to survive

She walk that runway strut to this beat.
Good to know punanie is back on my street
An intergalactic ride with that fine young girl
Stars in the night starting to swirl
Stars in my eyes, android in curls

Groovin' High in cinema bliss
Waiting for the Payoff Kiss.
My time to fly
It's my time to fly
Is it my time to fly?

Made my bones in the matrix
A thief for the Yakuza elite.
Till they left me fried with their
tail light guarantee.
The doll is built for distraction
She don't need to be packing the heat.
She can dance the Tarantino 'till the mayhem's complete
There's a pitch to her voice pounding primal, like a star spider eating it's kill.
I'm caught in her eyes like a beggar at the window sill.
Keep looking back over my shoulder,
Just might be the end drawing near.
Back into frame and the future's already here.

Carnival colors light up the sky.
Chasing currents running through the long cyber night
Down in the sprawl she waits patiently
We drive a stretch of deserted road by the sea.
That's the last anybody's ever heard from me
Floating high on this ocean of bliss
Waiting for the Payoff Kiss.
My time to fly, It's my time to fly.
Is it My Time To Fly?
