Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
Ziltoid!
Ziltoid, Ziltoid!
Ziltoid!
The Omniscient!
Ziltoid, Ziltoid!
Ziltoid!
The Omniscient!

[Ziltoid:]
Greetings humans, I am Ziltoid...the omniscient.
I have come from far across the omniverse.
You shall fetch me your universes ultimate cup of coffee...
Black!
You have five Earth minutes,
Make it perfect!


02. By Your Command

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
My command!
My dominion!
Memory, heart and all opinion,
Hide me, guide me,
Dry my tears,
Slowly taking back the years,
By your command,
By your command,
BY YOUR COMMAND,
No, I know,
All I am and,
We are not,
We are not to blame,
For all I have learned now,
We are not to blame,
Over and over,
And over and over,
And over you live it again!
(Touch it, take it)
Make it your friend!

[Ziltoid:]
You have not convinced mighty Ziltoid,
I am so omniscient; if there were to be two omniscience's
I would be both!
Prepare yourselves for the subjugation!

Hide me, guide me,
Dry my tears,
By your command,
Slowly taking back the years,
Now I know,
All I ask is,
We are not,
We are not to blame,
For all I have learned now,
We are not to blame!
Over and over,
and over and over,
and over you live it again!
(Touch it, take it)
Make it your friend!
Oh.. the physical race
You're dying!
Ohhhhh with physical grace..

Gone too far from the universe,
Gone too far for the way on home,
Gone too far from the universe.. the universe.

I'm flying…
Over physical,
I'm flying,
Over physical waste,
I'll keep it light, and stay awake.

[Ziltoid:] Commander…
[Commander:] Yes Captain Ziltoid!
[Ziltoid:] Have the humans delivered their ultimate cup of coffee?
[Commander:] I have it right here, sir.
[Ziltoid:] Yes…
[Ziltoid drinks the coffee]
[Ziltoid:] FETID! How dare they present this to me! FOUL! They hide their finest bean! Prepare the attack!

[Commander:] Captain Ziltoid! The humans are preparing themselves for the attack!
[Ziltoid:] Excellent! Have you prepared the planet smasher?
[Commander:] Yes, my lord.
[Ziltoid:] Indeed! On my word.
[Commander:] Yes, my lord...
[Human Commander:] Now listen here men! We represent the planet Earth! I want no heroes! He is gonna be unleashing a shit storm on us, we gotta be ready! They are coming over the horizon as we speak! We gotta be ready to take them down! Hold your position men! Do not fire until I tell you to fire! Have you got that?

03. Ziltoidia Attaxx!

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
Attack!
People of Earth!
We are the Ziltodian Warlords,
Resistance is futile!

Ships are in the sky,
Everything goes rushing past,
And you know the reason why!
Woah! Down!

Ships are in the sky,
Colder than a robot mind,
And you know the reason why!
You better believe we'll destroy the Earth!

[Ziltoid:] I am the greatest guitar player ever to have lived! I am Ziltoid!

You better believe we'll destroy the Earth!

04. Solar Winds

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
[Narrator:]
Now, being hailed as the ultimate 4th dimensional guitar hero, Ziltoid feels confident in his complete victory.
But, Captain Spectacular has seen through Ziltoid's façade and now sets out to expose Ziltoid for what he really is…a nerd.
A nerd…

We now join Captain Spectacular as he introspectively gazes out of his starship window, on his way to find the fifth dimensional nebulo 9.

Did you know that time,
Is not a straight line?
Everything that you learn,
Now it's gone,
Gone away.
You take your time,
If you choose,
You'll burn...
Everything that you were,
Now it's gone,
Gone away.
Yeah it's gone,
Gone away,

Yeah it's gone,
Gone away,
Gone!
And the world is gone!
And we find theirs no-one that's,
Waiting for the light to come,
And we are on our own,
And we find theirs no-one that's,
Waiting for the light to call,
Now you're on your own,
And You we find theirs no-one that's,
Waiting for the light to call.

[Captain Spectacular:]
I must rise! I must find a way! For this…Ziltoid will surely pay!
My fellow humans! I, Captain Spectacular, hereby give my good word!

Yeah it's gone, gone away,
Yeah it's gone, gone away,
Yeah it's gone, gone.

Solar wind blows,
Through my eye and control mind,
Solar wind blows,
Through my eye and control my mind,
Say it again!
Say it again!
Words are used for weapons!
Say it again, and again and again and again and again and again!
Don't let her down,
You've led her into my world!
Hey, you'll never learn,
You've led her into my mind.
Through your soul,
Your solar winds blowing cold.
You've never learned,
You've led her into my world.
Solar workings of your door,
The solar wind,
The solar winds blowing cold.

[Ziltoidian:] Commander Ziltoid, Permission to speak!
[Ziltoid:] Granted…
[Ziltoidian:] It appears as if Captain Spectacular and the remaining humans have set a course to the benevolent hive mine 9!
[Ziltoid:] Indeed…

Comfort me; you know I'm right,
Come to me into the night,
Knowing we are right behind,
The solar wind the solar winds blowing cold!
(Solar winds, solar winds blowing cold)

[Ziltoidian:] Commander Ziltoid the humans are no longer on our radar!
[Ziltoid:] What! Curses they must have jumped into hyperdrive. Phooey! Indeed, phooey! Until we meet again commander…


05. Hyperdrive

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
So cold, in the night,
Where the river flows,
Where the river flows,
So cold, in the night,
Where the river flows,
Where the river flows,
Sail away,
Hey, I'm sorry,
Everyday is a new day.
Hooray for love,
Hey, I'm lonely,
Trying to find a new way.
So cold, in the night,
Where the rivers slow,
Say the rivers slows,
So cold, in the night,
Where the rivers slow,
Say the rivers slows,
So cold…
Connect!
So cold, in the night,
Hold on…
Hold on…
So cold, in the night,
Hold on…
Hold on…
Sail away,
Hey I'm sorry,
Every day's a new day,
Hooray for love.
Hey I'm lonely
Try and be on your way,
On your way...
On your way...

She loves me not…

[Narrator:]
Having made their way through space, Captain Spectacular and his intrepid crew have arrived in nebulo 9.
Unbeknownst to the humans, Ziltoid has also arrived

[Ziltoid:] Haha! Surprise!


06. N9

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
Say to me,
Eternally,
Explain to me,
Infinity,
(Nine!)
Stay with me,
Eternally,
Explain to me,
Infinity,
So cold.
So far.
Time slows,
Time for…
It's so beautiful…
So beautiful…
Into my life,
So right.

[Ziltoid:] I feel so…vulnerable. You have not seen the last of me! You have not seen the last of Ziltoid!


07. Planet Smasher

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
[Ziltoid:]
Yes, I feel like a good bit of entertainment…time to destroy the planets.
Which one shall it be? This one? No…too feeble. This one…yes, perhaps.
Yes. This one shall do nicely. Commander…

[Commander:] Yes, Captain Ziltoid?
[Ziltoid:] Divert all the power from the main engines to the front guns
[Commander:] Yes captain Ziltoid, anything else?
[Ziltoid:] Take ninety percent of the surplus power and divert it toward the sonar awakening device…
[Commander:] Aye aye captain.
[Ziltoid:] We must summon the 6th dimensional planet smasher, I feel like a bit of fun…Summon him.

[Planet Smasher:] Who dares awaken the planet smasher!
[Ziltoid:] It is I, the 4th dimensional Ziltoid the omniscient!

Cherish the mind,
Cover your mind,
Cherish your mental sanctum.
Cower to war,
Cower to war,
Cower to war,
On the Earth!
Curse to be by the sun,
Power gain out,
You are the only one,
Channels the mind,
Channels the mind,
Channels the mind,
Of the earth,
Cherish the pain,
Cherish the pain,
Cherish the pain,
Cherish the mental weapon,
Cower to war,
Cower to war,
Cowards remain on the earth.
Tell me what you want from me!
ALL I WANNA BE IS THE OMNIVERSE!
They're allowed to be,
Around all of us,
All I want to see,
Through the omniverse,
Let its thoughts go until tomorrow,
Smasher,
Bow to the valley below,
Please do not raise the planet smasher, mighty Ziltoid!
We are…
Smash it!
Bow to the valley below,
Bow,
Smasher,
Bow,
Smasher,
Bow to the valley below!
Smasher!
ALL I WANT TO BE IS THE OMNIVERSE!
Smasher!
They are allowed to be!
Around all of us!
All I want to see through the omniverse!
Through the omniverse!
Through the omniverse!
Through the omniverse!

[Planet Smasher:] Foul pest! And by the way the names Herman. And I hate musicals!


08. Omnidimensional Creator

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
[Narrator:] Having been rejected by the planet smasher, Ziltoid seeks the council of the omnidimensional creator.

[Ziltoid:] Assuage my confusion about creation and the universe
[Creator:] Yo! Ziltoid, what's up dude? Long time no see…although I see everything. What's on you mind bro?
[Ziltoid:] Modular forms and elliptic curves! Infinite fire revolving around infinite parallels fractals of infinite reality, each cascading, gliding in an infinite wheel. Tell me the true nature of my reality!
[Creator:] You gotta chill man…


09. Color Your World

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
See how the waves of the world,
Recline to me,
See how the weight of the world,
Resign to me,
Sooner or later,
The nights with the satyr,
Will bring back the memories,
Time…
See how the sight of it all,
Recline to me,
Dance of the power of all,
Resign to me,
Who's the weakest now?
Caught up in the wire,
I'm already gone,
Who's the weakest?
I concede to rights,
To do whatever I can,
Watching a right,
But not this,
I'm Ziltoid!
I don't give a shit!
I live above earth!
In a rocket ship!
I'm Ziltoid!
The horror!
The horror!
I'm Ziltoid!
The horror!
The horror!
I'm Ziltoid!
The horror!
The horror!

Stay at home for me,
You and I are free,
To love by the firewall,
Too loud for a while...
Stay at home for me,
(Ziltoid the omniscient)
Come on I,
Are we?
(Oooohhh Ahhh)
In time,
You'll be young again,
Too loud for a while...
Say I'm wasting all my life,
Say I'm wasting time,
Stay at home for me,
(Ziltoid the omniscient)
You and I are free
To love…

So in the end,
It's beautiful,
It's beautiful,
Yes in the end,
It's beautiful,
So beautiful,

You say you wanna know!
You say you wanna take it down!
You say you wanna know, know, know!
Well now's the only time!
Are you sure you wanna know?
Are you sure you wanna take it down?
Are you sure you wanna know, know, know?
You're a PUPPET!
You're a PUPPET!
You're a PUPPET!
You're a PUPPET!
You're a PUPPET!
I am a PUPPET!
I am a PUPPET!
I am a PUPPET!
I am a PUPPET!
We are all PUPPETS!
We are all PUPPETS!


10. The Greys

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
Stay away from the unknown,
Stay away from me,
For a while,
Alone,
In your own words,
In your own world,
For me,
It's the greys that give…
Alone, alone,
And it's the serious that give a plan…
Alone, alone
In your own word,
In your own world,
For me,
And the words,
They get so low!
And then its time,
To carry me home
You were right
You were right, right?
READY OR NOT HERE I COME!
And the greys float our memories,
In the long haul,
And the greys wash away…
So,
CHAOS!
So alone, alone, alone.
And the words,
They get so low!
And then its time,
To carry me home,
You were right,
We were right,
Ready or not here I come!
And the greys float our memories,
In the long haul,
And they greys float our memories,
In the long haul,
And they greys float our memories,
In the long haul…


11. Tall Latté

Music & lyrics by Devin Townsend
[Man:] …And they greys float our memories, In the long haul…
