Touch me now and feel my force
I will give you life
History will change its course
Man will survive

Something's strange, I'm so confused, I don't know why
I've been designed to tell the truth, I cannot lie
I heard the news, a mystery, a strange device
I'm so afraid, I just can't see through all these lies

Behold this alien messenger
Is this a cosmic design?
The bringer of a new day
One by four by nine

Reach out to me and seal your fate
A new phase is near
Come to me and cross the gate
No pain, no fear

Something's strange, I'm so confused, I don't know why
Secrets have not been told
I've been designed to tell the truth, I cannot lie
When will the truth unfold?

I heard the news, a mystery, a strange device
What does the future hold?


I'm so afraid, I just can't see through all these lies

Behold this alien messenger
Is this a cosmic design?
The bringer of a new day

One by four by nine

A strange signal, beamed out in space
From the face of the moon
Harbinger of a new race
We'll be evolving soon

I see the future, a new star will rise
I see the world through the all-seeing eyes
Of the Starchild
Starchild

I have entered another dimension
My perception expands
Transcending beyond comprehension
Evolution of man?

I see the future, a new star will rise
I see the world through the all-seeing eyes
Of the Starchild
Starchild
[x2]

Time has come, a brand new sun
Shining down on you
The reign of peace has now begun
Dreams have come true

I heard the news, a mystery, a strange device
I'm so afraid, I just can't see through all these lies

Behold this alien messenger
Is this a cosmic design?
The bringer of a new day

One by four by nine
One by four by nine
I see the future, a new star will rise
I see the world through the all-seeing eyes
Of the Starchild
Oh yeah
I see the world through the eyes
Of the Starchild

I see the future, a new star will rise
I see the world through the all-seeing eyes
I see the future, a new star will rise
I see the world through the all-seeing eyes
Of the Starchild

Dreams have come true
Shining down on you
I give you life. Man will survive

    General CommentHard to figure this one out. Have to watch my sci-fi collection again (that could take awhile)....but I can't think of any movie this links up too. The main theme seems to be about alien technology activating near earth, a man receives that message and realizes he is the one who through an awakened consciousness he will lead humanity to a new dawn. Thoughts?

    General CommentDefinitely about 2001: A Space Odyssey. They find a monolith on the moon which transmits a signal to Jupiter (or Saturn in Clarke's book). The "one by four by nine" refers to the ratio of the dimensions of the monolith, which is mentioned in the book.
