about

New York City, 1977

Smoke filled street corners and ragged bars, pimps and pushers, a smell that won't go away. His nighttime sky is filled with dreams that died. It's then that he sees her. Half human, half android. Half woman and half machine. Peering into his television she vanishes as quickly as she appeared. The air around him has become thick and humid, like the lie of a politician's smile, it masks the reality of his desperation. The air in the streets is heavy, the exhaust of too many taxis and Marlboros linger for days. A stray dog feverishly barks from the alley. He tries but can't block it out. Another headache. Another victim. Time for bed, but he can't sleep. He can never sleep. Then one night he is startled by the sound of metal on metal and a gritty static TV flickers as he enters the room. Slowly pacing towards the set, he sees her neon metal helmet. It seemed to be glowing in a way, inviting him. Reaching his arm inside the television he pulls hard, and finally she is there. She is real. Video Girl.

Track Name: Video Girl
You're a video girl
Tuned to black and white
Spin that record
Till the past survives
Eyes turn away
Put your lips to mine
Yeah we dance like this
Till the end of time

I am your video girl
I am your video
I am your video
I am your video girl

You're my video girl
Turn me on tonight
Just press play
So the past survives
Lights turned down
But your lips don't lie
Can we dance like this
TiIll the end of time?

I am your video girl
I am your video
Track Name: New York Night
Pretty little doll
Let me hold you close
We can watch the sun set
From coast to coast
Catch a jet plane
Right on time
Set your heart
On fire tonight

The city is moving the lights are bright
Can't see your face in the New York night
It's 1985 tonight

Maybe it's the money
Or the fancy clothes
We walk the boulevard
Until it's closed
It's 3 am
You're out of time
I write the words
You drink the wine
Track Name: Son of Sam
Oh hey
Don't you wanna know my name
And what it is I have to say
I bet he's got a gun
And he's looking for some love
They left you on your own
How does it feel to be alone
Just a man who's alone
Standing in the rain

I'm a God when you know who I am
No one's coming home
Son of Sam
Track Name: Mr. Grey
I am forgotten
In this time
In this space
The future's bright
So I will wait
Don't you say another word
Don't you feel a little pain
I lost you somewhere
Beyond the grey
