lyrics

The Captain steers his ship between the rocks and guided by the stars lands safely in the port of New Mumbai
Within whose city walls a million people live beneath the ground protected from the glare of both suns in the sky
And deep within this crowd a telepath reads wealthy minds extracting secrets he may later pass on to his friend
A cybermage who plays the keys her aim to undermine the corporate masters as they sit and watch their profits rise

Aaaah
Inside the city science and magic reign
Inside the city telescopes skywards strain
Inside the city laser competes with spell
Inside the city traveller and wizard dwell

The captain sits on the inside
Of Eddie’s bar a place to hide
His pirate crew stand at his side and drink
He contemplates his whiskey there
And thinks of treasure in his lair
The pirate crew deserve a share they think

Inside the city the bar staff are pretty
The crew are acting loud and tough
They haven’t nearly drank enough
Inside the city it seems such a pity
The crew came in without a care
And leave most of their fortune there

The telepath stands by the door
The captain’s thoughts he listens for
The details of the treasure store inferred
And when the thoughts are at an end
A present for his magic friend
The details of the trove he’ll send to her


Inside the city the banter is witty
But drunkards will let secrets slip
The details of their pirate ship
Inside the city when night lights are lit he
Listens to the tipsy minds
His living earned from what he finds

The cybermage receives the gift
Of information she can sift
The Captain’s bank account she swiftly plunders
And while she searches through the net
She stumbles on a secret kept
Is there a greater profit yet she wonders

Inside the city her calling is risky
Following the money round
Her aim to bring the network down
Inside the city although it seems tricky
The firewalls fall before her art
As she strikes at the city’s heart

The Captain and his crew awake with throbbing heads and guided by an eerie light walk out through New Mumbai
Arriving at their ship they board and firing up the engines set course between the two suns in the sky

Aaaah
Inside the city traveller and wizard dwell

Inside the city

Within the walls of New Mumbai the actions of the night before will soon conspire to change a million lives
