Welcome to the afterglow
Welcome to the show

We welcome to the world
The flight just arrived at gate 17

We welcome to the world the ones who left to find
Other states of mind while others stayed behind
We welcome to the world the ones who couldn't live it
Too late to begin it and too soon to end it

For they are the returning generation

We welcome to the world
The flight just arrived at gate 17
Would all passengers who've been
In search of other ways of living
Check at Information for debriefing

For they are the returning generation

Welcome to the world
Where shares can go down as well as up
Where 'Words are flowing out like endless rain into a
Paper cup'
Plays on a remastered cd somewhere in Los Angeles
While seagulls wheel and the index drops

Research and development, I'm in my element
With the last of the elephants brainstorming
Never mind what's relevant and never mind selling it
While the power drains from the mainframes I'm surfing
On the brainwaves
Singing free the slaves, Jesus saves and other bullshit

Literature
Washed down in the rainstorm

Welcome to the afterglow
Welcome to the show

Welcome to the world
Check your hostility
At gate 17
This is information
We eat, we sleep, we shit and fuck and die
We speak, we hope, we learn, we try

Welcome to the afterglow
Welcome to the show

For we are the returning generation

We welcome to the world
The flight just arrived at gate 17
Would all passengers who've been
In search of other ways of living
Check at Information for debriefing

Welcome to the afterglow
Welcome to the show

Too late to enjoy it
Too soon to destroy it
Too dumb to invent it
Too smart to end it

Too late to enjoy it
Too soon to destroy it
Too dumb to invent it
Too smart to end it

Too late to enjoy it
Too soon to destroy it
Too dumb to invent it
Too smart to end it

Too late to enjoy it
Too soon to destroy it
Too dumb to invent it
Too smart to end it
