This Is Hawkwind... Do Not Panic tracks

1. PSI POWER

When I was a kid in school
They showed me symbols on a card
Then they sent them from a locked and bolted room
I had to fake that it was hard

Circle, Square, Triangle, Waves
I got crystal clear by the hour
And I said `may I please take a rest?`
I didn`t want them to know I was possessed with

PSI Power PSI Power
PSI Power PSI Power
PSI Power PSI Power

I can read your mind like a magazine
I see where you`re at
I know what you mean
I get all the secrets that you`d rather keep

When I was a teenage kid
And I hung around the streets
I could see inside the mind of any girl
That I wanted to meet

Circle, Square, Triangle, Waves
They are open to me like a flower
How would you like to have your mind caressed
Can`t you feel that I`d possessed with

PSI Power PSI Power
PSI Power PSI Power
PSI Power PSI Power

PSI Power
PSI Power
PSI Power

I can read your mind like a magazine
I see where you`re at
I know what you mean
I get all the secrets you`d rather keep

It`s like a radio you can`t switch off
There`s no way to get peace of mind
I would like to live in a lead-lined room
And leave all this PSI Power behind

Circle, Square, Triangle, Waves
It`s a gift that soon turned sour
Why don`t they let me get rest
Too much to understand
Too much to digest

PSI Power PSI Power
PSI Power PSI Power
PSI Power PSI Power

I can read your mind like a magazine
I see where you`re at
I know what you mean
I get all the secrets you`d rather keep




2. LEVITATION

In the darkness I will shine, cast not shadows, nor define
I walk on water, float on air, there`s no other to compare
I have this fascination, no cause for a deviation
It`s called levitation
There`s no cause to start and scream, nor rub your eyes,
this is no dream
Although I sit upon this chair, I rise and float up in the air
I have this fascination, no cause for a deviation
It`s called levitation
Magnetic force, repel-attract, once it starts, there`s
no turning back
I offer you this chance to learn, take it now
there`s no return




3. PSYCHOSIS

We have malfunction on screens
Switching to computer override now




4. 5TH SECOND OF FOREVER

There's a circle on the paper,
High a planet in the sky
From the dust which will not settle
Hours is the time you lie
Trace your fingers in the cluster
You've found the cause which is called must
Remember always that you are nothing
Although others say you must suss
You must suss, you must suss
You must suss, you must suss
You must suss, you must suss
You must suss, you must suss
You must suss, you must suss




5. SPACE CHASE

(Instrumental)




6. DEATH TRAP

In the back of my neck I can feel a strange sensation
Feels like I`m heading for the crisis of all creation
Only those with death wish understand my situation
Feels like Jesus Christ heading for the stations

of the cross, in my death trap, death trap
Running in my death trap, death trap
Chicken running in my death trap, death trap

Heading for the crossroads of fiery crucifixion
Lighting up the night sky with bitterness distinction
While I hold the wheel of fate, smell of burning friction
I feel like a hero heading for extinction

It`s the shell of steel or plastic
Monkey on elastic, going up and down
Crank shaft cracking up
Oil pressure going down
Brake drums blowing out
Tyres on fire now
Differential seize up, unbalanced cam shaft
Worn out pistons rings, brake fade, brake fade
hydraulic leak out, radiator overheat
Monkey on elastic, going up and down
Shell of steel or plastic, turning round
Shell of steel or plastic
Monkey on elastic, going up and down




7. ANGELS OF DEATH

We`re angels of life, we`re angels of death
We`re born to blaze a nuclear way through space
A way out of the waste that held the human race
We`re angels of life, we`re angels of death
We are the dead who are never led
We are the warriors at the edge of time
We lurk inside your brain, hide inside your minds
We`re angels of life, we`re angels of death
We stalk the city streets to kill all we meet
Nostrils flare awhile, it makes you want to smile
We`re born to erase, all of your days




8. SHOT DOWN IN THE NIGHT

Numbers called as they`re waiting in a line
Camouflaged like a jungle snake
Acting tough, just enough
`til they start to break
Then they`re off with a rush of adrenalin
Holding on to a world unseen
the only sound is the pumping of the great machine

[chorus:]
The secret`s only for a few
Superpower looks down on you
Someone`s watching every move
You can break the lock and turn on the light ?
You know your danger feelings are right
Try to run or put up a fight
You`ll be shot down in the night
Shot down like an animal

See them run like rats from the factory
Push them out to the twilight zone
Let them feed on their needs
`til they`re overthrown
Take them up to a place in the gallery
Show them God with an angel face
Curtain call for the fall
Of the Human race

Play it straight and it seems like a mystery
Tell the truth and it sounds like lies
Looking down at the ground
With your angry eyes
Play the game and you`ll see there`s a difference
Join the ranks and you`ll get your kicks
See the world, and the girls, and the dirty tricks
