It has always been in the back of my mind
Dreaming about going into the corners of time
I always wanted to fly in strange machines

I wanna do centuries in a lifetime
And feel it with my hands
Touch World War II and Cleopatra
Flying...

Could it be that my dream come true
Building a machine that would actually do
What I want it to do?

Russian Revolution, let's do that in one day
Beethoven and Gershwin I think that would be OK
More than anything I wanna fly in strange machines

I wanna do centuries in a lifetime
And feel it with my hands
Watch Jesus rise, if he ever did
Flying...

"It was disconcerting to see the sun arc in less than a minute; to see a snail race by; my flowers flinging wide their petals to embrace the new day."

I wanna do centuries in a lifetime
And feel it with my hands
Touch Renaissance and Chaka Khan
Flying...
