"Critical Mass" as written by and Jack Douglas Steven Tyler....
[I. Fission]
Atom by atom, gaining a few
Collapsing and waxing and building anew
Eleven dimensions curled up so tight
Time and space one thing, the speed limit light
Neutron and proton collapsing afresh
More complex carbons creating the flesh
Super string membranes, dark matter burst
Pulling together our universe
Strange, charm and gluons imploding again
All of this matter formed into men

Energy everywhere, no drop to drink
Each generation a chain in the link
Science has helped us in getting this far
The road has run out now, get out of the car
We're approaching the critical mass

[CHORUS] What will become of the spirit of man?
What is the story and how does it end?
Where are the boundaries and where are the doors?
Who are the heroes for fighting this war?

How did I meet you and why have we spent
our lives together? And why were we sent?
I know that I've lived with you twelve times before
We're growing together, but what is it for?
We're approaching the critical mass
[CHORUS]
This means war!

We're approaching the critical mass
[CHORUS x2]
[II. Fusion - Instrumental]
[III. Lucky]
I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do
I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do
I don't pray so I’ll have to stay lucky
I don't pray so I’ll have to stay lucky

I was dead, I was alive
I've been everyone in this life
I was alive, I was dead
I've heard everything ever said

I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do
I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do
I don't pray so I’ll have to stay lucky
I don't pray so I’ll have to stay lucky

I was awake, I was asleep
I never had anything that I could keep
I was asleep, I was awake
I never broke anything I couldn't make

I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do
