Found out we had a secret underground pyramid they had built underneath the building over there, a large full frame copper pyramid that you could go down into the chamber, crawl up inside of and sit down in the thing and I tell ya, you go off planet right there. This thing has an accelerator on top of it that sends your mind off into different places. When I was young my mother taught me a little bit about how the mind works and how you get outside if your body anyway, so I did my usual thing that I do... but inside the pyramid, which had been built for Billy by these extraterrestrials - they told him how to build it - uhh, it really accelerates your meditation and your thoughts and your individual spiritual powers... so there were a lot of really unusual things going on there.

-Randy Winters, the Pleiadian Mission

Track Name: Excellent Realms
Enter the copper pyramid
Close all windows and doors
Visiting other worlds
We call them "excellent"

Communicating with the beings
On far away planets
Inside my copper pyramid
Excellent realms reside
Track Name: Space Without You
Don't you desert me
In this space ship

Space is so empty
Without you

You took my helmet
Now I can't breathe

Space is so lonely
Without you
Track Name: On My Planet
On my planet
We're not immune
To heartbreak
Or empty chests
We're so technologically advanced
But we can't eliminate loneliness

I miss my space babe
She left me for another
He is much taller,
And stronger, and smarter
We're so technologically advanced
But we can't eliminate loneliness
Track Name: Discover
The chirps and quacks and lip smacks
The baas and paws and claws
Life out here is different
Mammals are not the top

The skronking of the Wilby
The sighing of the Flern
Our creatures are so many
Your creatures are so few
