Golden 03:47
Golden I want to live, to witness when the ice breaks. When we awake, freeze my body. Wake me when they return, to shake the world. When the time comes, see creation. They'll shock the world then and we'll have to let go. Science, Religion, believe in what we know. (chorus) Only time will tell if there's a god in hell. Don't ask now they'll lie to you. They'll make it true. Believe it too. It's what they do. They'll lie to you. They'll lie to you. They'll lie about something. Build me a shem, Bring me to them. When they return, to shake the world. When the time comes we'll see heaven. They'll shock the world then and we'll have to let go. And we'll believe in what we know.
Plastic 04:38
Plastic Plastic bubbles, curved like human Fragile beauty, so incomplete Soft and hard like any woman Her faces light up, always happy. Aaahhhh.... Plastic nightmares, lucid dreams I find a mirror and smoke appears I touch my face, it feels like rubber I have become me, I feel no fear. Aaahhhh.... CHORUS: Plastic man, hurt me again In my dreams, cold clear eyes become my friends Plastic breaks, I'm human again Desperately, my body aches for Plastic man Through plastic grass and walls of foam A combination person comes to me I try to tell them they don't exist They get so angry and don't believe. Aahhhh....
Breath 03:32
Breath My flesh it hides my voice inside Her breath is weak my voice won't speak My breath is wine your love divine Inside your skin, I want within My voice inside no longer hides She speaks to me I feel release My voice inside no longer hides She speaks to me, she set me free My breath is wine. Your love divine Inside your skin, I want within
Resolution (19edo) I was broken down and I couldn't speak Couldn't walk with my shaky knees Everyday I have to be strong But everything is all wrong CHORUS: The situation calls for a resolution It's like an animal that needs to run wild again I'm offering a stimulant This time we'll take it to the wind The situation calls for a resolution You're feeling sad but you're looking good You want it bad and I think you should You hold a mountain in your hand I think it's time you take a stand You've got a ticket in your hand A ticket to the promised land Baby I know we have to fly And I'll see you in the sky
Nibiru 03:12
Nibiru Enki was a brilliant scientist He mined gold on Earth for their atmosphere But then the miners mutinied They needed slaves and they called on Ninti And she created me, and she created me. Hey! CHORUS: I'll follow you, planet Nibiru Ninti nipped off fourteen parts of clay Made the mold and shouted triumphantly, "I have created, my hands have made it!" She was a true olden goddess form Nibiru And she created me, and she created me. Hey! Apewoman roamed until they upgraded her To mine gold on Earth for their atmosphere And then they knew their test tube children Made them kings and married the women And then they let us go, and they went back home. Hey!
Space Man 04:09
Space Man Your eyes, so fresh, so true You come into this world and we confuse you Don't forget You say you want to be a space man Don't forget Don't forget that we all love you So take a chance 'cause we believe in you Just don't follow in our footsteps 'Cause I know they'll get you nowhere
Dummer 04:11
Dummer Under the bridge is where we live All around are the highways We see the lights passing by Streaking by like the days That's it, we've hit the pit, can't dig any deeper CHORUS: Let's rise above We're getting dummer every day Right now, let's pull the plug We're getting dummer every day We move with the flow Running hot and feeling cold On the edge of sanity This is where we stalled Anger / Frustration / Isolation
Buchla Rise 02:53
Buchla Rise We let our capsule drift, sailing into emptiness Here there is no wind. Here we have no reflection We've been called into space by her alluring voice To go to a new place. Now we have a choice She cast a spell on me with her magnetic mystery I have forsaken this world for a new spherical entity It's no longer sci-fi. We see it without eyes We have become immortal on our Buchla Rise
Slammin 03:08
Slammin' You saw a girl on the street She reminded you of me You said she said she was a singer, like me A really good one, like I should be She was slammin' You saw a girl on TV She reminded you of that girl on the street She was a real looker She was slammin' I'm going to leave and go on TV You'll say I remind you of a girl you once knew She was slammin'
Comatosity Quality control...marshmallow cereal It's all about style but it's always changing Like we never get it right...it's all about entertaining The art of abstraction It's got that big skull crushing heaviness It's got that nice pop sensibility, yeah CHORUS: Changing all our lives, never satisfied, all our lives I'm at the enormo mart and I'm looking at pop tarts Got a nice new hologram and I feel hypnotized And I see more and more...it's all about duplication The art of exacting Don't tell me about comatosity I'm working nearly half capacity, yeah CHORUS: Dreaming all our lives, never satisfied Feeling Hypnotized, never satisfied, all our lives
Spider 03:50
Spider And I fall into her web. The spider's on me And she crawls inside my head, and weaves my mind And it's happening again. I live only for you I cannot read my head when the spider's on me In the evening I recall the way I loved you Now I'm not myself at all. I've slipped away. And the moon is looking smeared All the stars have disappeared Condensation blurs my skies when the spider's on me And it floated from her mouth, such a complicated sound In a simple little word. How it always wanted out
Big Bang! Born out of darkness, descended from pure energy Symmetrical and timeless, when something broke the symmetry A super position of infinite geometries Interfering reinforcing, adding like a sound wave Eleven dimensions. Four that we live in Seven are hidden. Will we ever know them And from the vacuum, instant cosmology Matter Antimatter, exploded into everything CHORUS: I came alive. I was born in the Big Bang. I closed my eyes. I can see. We are growing. Through Space and Time on a journey to knowing. I came alive. I was born in the Big Bang.


Most of ZIA's live show consists of material from Big Bang, and if you do not yet own a ZIA CD, buy this one first! The title track is about the grand cosmic event, the Big Bang, from which we were born. Golden and Nibiru were strongly inspired by Zecharia Sitchin's book The 12th Planet. This CD goes beyond Elaine's love for cold technology and outer space, with some slightly more down to Earth songs, emotionally inspired during Elaine's married years.
