Todd Leiter-Weintraub It's like McCartney got together with Flaming Lips, Radiohead, and other modern prog and psych bands to create the best album any of them have made in years. The only thing wrong with this album is that it isn't longer. Just great!

Track Name: Dirigibles
Take a look in a mirror
Is what you see what you had hoped?
Or is it one in a million…
One of a million miles to go?


Another missed connection
Frustrated, far away and slow
Would you rather stay
Or would you rather be a dirigible?


Don’t need directions
Whichever way the winds blow
It can last forever
It only ends when you say so


Float around the heavens
In between the ocean and the sun
You were made for flying
Made to be a dirigible…


We can start a fire
Make up our minds we wanna go
These are days of magic
These are days of magic for your soul


There’ll be no more crying
Escape the world’s undertow
We were made for flying
Made to be dirigibles...
Track Name: Lucky Star
I knew the moment you came
My favorite song that you sang
You brought the comets to a halt


A laser pointed my way
Somehow you knew my first name
I don’t have anything on you at all


I never knew your name was taken from an opera
I never knew your name was taken from an opera
My lucky star
Mama mia…


Let’s make this our own song
Change keys and change the sound
Add violins and change the name


Write lyrics one by one
We can slow the tempo down
I’ll be watching when you take the stage


I never knew your name was taken from an opera
I never knew your name was taken from an opera
My lucky star
Mama mia…


I saw you in another life
You chased me with a kitchen knife
They say you are the preachers wife
Oh…


I never knew your name was taken from an opera
I never knew your name was taken from an opera
My lucky star
Mama mia…
Track Name: Let's Go Outside
Let’s go outside
Let’s go outside
Let’s go unwind
And let go tonight


The sun sets and it goes behind all of the houses
When the lights are coming on one by one
And I run down the sidewalk watching for that
Crack the one that always trips me, but i run anyway


Let’s go outside
Let’s go outside
Let’s go unwind
And let go tonight


The fireflies lighting on the grass like
Japanese lanterns floating away
And we’ll walk all around the neighborhood
Until we pass out in a hammock hanging from a tree


And all the things from early in the day
The things that crack and make you cry
They melt all away into the night where
everything smells like trees


Let’s go outside
Let’s go outside
Let’s go unwind
And let go tonight
Track Name: The Last Summer
Letting go of forever
The endless summer nights when we rode around
In a dream i was much younger
In a dream i had nothing to wake me up


Falling back on a memory
We were never lost but we were never found
In a dream we had each other
In a dream we got away with never growing old


The sun goes up, the sun goes down but in the end life goes on
Things are lost, things are found, but in the end life goes on
Take a breath, turn the page, in the end life goes on
Let it go, ride the wave, in the end life goes on
Life goes on…


The sound of the thunder
The fast approaching rain and the darkening clouds
In a dream we were together
In a dream this was forever


The sun goes up, the sun goes down but in the end life goes on
Things are lost, things are found, but in the end life goes on
Take a breath, turn the page, in the end life goes on
Let it go, ride the wave, in the end life goes on
Life goes on…


Say goodbye to the summer
Turn around and make your new adventure
In a dream I was much younger
I was never lost but was never found


The sun goes up, the sun goes down but in the end life goes on
Things are lost, things are found, but in the end life goes on
Take a breath, turn the page, in the end life goes on
Let it go, ride the wave, in the end life goes on
Life goes on…
Track Name: Orbiting
When the sun goes down
And the moon comes up behind the rockets
And all i see is you


Through the glass i see you’re the one
I’m aching to be free and i hope
You’ll float away with me


I’m floating, orbiting around you
Nothing else matters...nothing else matters when
I’m floating, orbiting around you
I’m on the outside...outside looking in


Every time i fall through the clouds
I end up in your space, a blinking circling satellite


Through the fog, the radioactive shroud
The acid-tasting clouds, is where i breathe your atmosphere


I’m floating, orbiting around you
Nothing else matters...nothing else matters when
I’m floating, orbiting around you
I’m on the outside...outside looking higher and higher and higher and higher


Outer space is cold, all alone
A helmet helps me swallow all the breaths
You take away from me


I’m floating, orbiting around you
Nothing else matters...nothing else matters when
I’m floating, orbiting around you
I’m on the outside...outside looking higher and higher and higher and higher
Track Name: Voyage
SIt with me under the Milky Way
There’s nothing left to do today
We can watch the flashes cross the sky
We’ll sleep under the stars tonight


And no one knows just what they are
Could be a satellite or a shooting star
Those beautiful, dazzling lights
Those beautiful, dazzling lights
Those beautiful, dazzling lights
They’re beautiful tonight


So take a look into my eyes
There’s a supernova light inside
A connection to everyone
There’s a galaxy inside our bones


And no one knows just what it is
A universe in a simple kiss
And we are all made of stars
You and me and everyone


Those beautiful, dazzling lights
Those beautiful, dazzling lights
Our beautiful, dazzling lights
We’re beautiful tonight
