"Cosmic Castaway" as written by and Nigel Nisbet....
Lose my head to the chemical freeway
Comin' up on overload
In a mystic new dimension
Purify and sanctify me
What so I'm in no end game
Move my piece right off the board
Losing sure is easy
So I am no more

But I'm not broken, in my dream I win
In here I'm nothing, a Cosmic Castaway

In my head I'm a chemical dreamer
Speed up to burn out mode
Comin' up in the 5th dimension
Beautify don't crucify me, yeah
So I need no mind game poisoning my lonely soul
Losing sure is easy so I am no more

But I'm not broken, in my dream I win
And I take over, 'cause I'm no loser
And I'm in and you're not, bad dreams don't stop
But I'm all screwed up, a Cosmic Castaway
A Cosmic Castaway, a Cosmic Castaway

And I want but have not
Bad dreams, lust thoughts
In here with no pain, you hurt me again
And I want but have none
I should beat the alien
But here I'm no one, a Cosmic Castaway
a Cosmic Castaway, a Cosmic Castaway
a Cosmic Castaway

    General CommentFor those of you that don't know, this song is off the Titan A.E. soundtrack. I know that it sort of goes with the theme of the movie but I was wondering if someone could give me their opinion of the meaning of the song. Thanks a bunch. Later, Rev

    General Commentyou know, i was thinking about this song. and the verses give me the impresion of someone on an acid trip

    "lose my head to the chemical free way"
    "i'm a chemical dreamer"

    but i think its more about him striving for something, probably after someone, but then giving up on it...

    but hell, what do i know.

    General Commenti think that this song is talking about being lost in the world "In a mystic new dimension" and then like kinda being a kid you know like at 18 when you get a taste of the real world "But I'm not broken, in my dream I win
    In here I'm nothing, a Cosmic Castaway" and how some people can get lost and feel like your a drop in the ocean

    General CommentIt's "lost thoughts".

    Certainly about being lost in an existence of cosmic influence and uncontrollable change; dreaming of heroism but drowned in inanity. Very fitting to the movie. And definitely the best song out of Electrasy.

    General Commentthat movie was awesome, i saw it again like 2 days ago and found it to be just as awesome as it was back when it first came out (i was like 12).

    anyway, i think it may be about being alone in general and depressed and the term "cosmic castaway" just emphasizes the feeling of isolation that the subject is feeling (having the cosmos between you and everyone else). as for the chemical references, it could just be talking about medication (like antidepressants)

    just my 2 cents
