"The Free Design" as written by Timothy John Gane and Laetitia Sadier....
Where it had been left
Hundreds of years ago
Extract from the depth
Is but a setting sun paradise is scarce
In this light that won't shine
What is our earthly task
But a worthy design?

Some held it in sight
For scattered it may have been
They're ready to fight
In a priceless inkling
The request is here
Ready to resurrect
What else can we do but recover the project

Our earthly design
Can be so detached
What crushes our desire
Not to be trapped
When the higher spheres
Tell us to and not to
Everyone agrees
Demanding more veto
Our earthly design
Can we be so detached
What crushes our desire
Not to be trapped?

    General CommentIt's funny, this song has none of the doubled-up vocal harmonies that characterized The Free Design's music and influenced Stereolab so much. For me, Dots & Loops is their most Free Design influenced album, but the Cobra opener, Fuses, could have come right off a Free Design album.
