Track Name: Rachel Rosen
My name is Rick Deckard, I'm in my hover car
I'm a bounty hunter for the city
There's six androids free, and it's left to me tonight

They're the Nexus 6 and they get their kicks
From singing opera and killing humans
She's got short dark hair and an icy stare, alright

Is Rachel Rosen really an android
Can Rachel Rosen really be alive
Is Rachel Rosen really an android
Can Rachel Rosen really be alive

I give the Voigt-Kampff test to bounty hunter Phil Resch
cause he fears that he might be an android
He's got a laser tube and a bad attitude, tonight

I book a hotel room, I hope she gets here soon
I've got three androids to retire
We share an android kiss at the St. Francis tonight
Track Name: Leodora
Diverus is my name, we're here to entertain you
I play the shawm while Lea works her puppets
We perform our show everywhere we go
But we're running from the agents of Lord Tophet

Can we live happily ever after walking span to span?

Leodora, don't cry.
Leodora, don't walk away.
Leodora, don't cry
Leodora, don't walk away from me now.

Bardsham was her father, Leandra was her mother
but Soter raised her since she was a baby
She wears a painted mask, she says her name is Jax
now she's the only woman who can save me

Can we live happily ever after walking span to span?

Chorus
Track Name: Cylon #6
She's six foot tall and platinum blond
and saunters with her red dress on
She has powers of seduction

We had to flee from Caprica
on the Battlestar Galactica
Is she the source of our destruction?

There's 50,000 survivors
racing through the stars

She is Cylon #6 and she is always in my head
they think that I'm a lunatic but they don't seem to understand
That I'm only human and she is only a machine
and they don't seem to realize that she's the angel that we need

She says that she is one of twelve
but how are we supposed to tell
just who's a cylon or a human

We're searching for the 13th tribe
if we can make it there alive
on the journey to their solar system

There's 50,000 survivors
racing through the stars

She is Cylon #6 and she is always in my head
they think that I'm a lunatic but they don't seem to understand
That I'm only human and she is only a machine
and they don't seem to realize that she's the angel that we need
Track Name: Summer Glau
See the girl curled up in the cryo
Not a stitch of clothing found in sight
Mal is ticked off wond'rin' 'bout the Doctor
I don't care, cause I'm feeling alright

See the tree branch lying on the cold deck
She picks it up, maybe thinks its fun
Snap us back to now, see the worried crew
Don't look now but River's got a gun

Summer Glau, she makes me feel fine
I can't shake her image from my mind
Summer Glau, she makes me feel fine
I can't shake her image from my mind

See the angel punching and a kickin'
Not really sure what she could do
She's a weapon, a source of destruction
She's a vital part of Malcolm's crew
Summer Glau, she makes me feel fine
I can't shake her image from my mind
Summer Glau, she makes me feel fine
I can't shake her image from my mind
Track Name: Sarene
The city walls are covered with slime and sludge
It's difficult to find someone to trust
The Shaod took a hold of us and left us dead inside
Every scratch is agony where the pain will never subside

Oh Sarene, I wished I could have known you
Oh Sarene, I'm sorry that I'm gone
Oh Sarene, Your the one I wanted all along

I found a friend in Galladon the Duladen
We organized a union of the denizens from Elantris
We washed the walls and planted seed
and scripted Aons of pure light
A princess came to offer us
a solution to our plight

Oh Sarene, I wish that I could tell you
That I'm the Prince of Arelon
Oh Sarene, you think you're doing the right thing but it's wrong

Hrathen has three months to convert the populace of Kae
If he fails than the people of Arelon will be slayed
by the holy soldiers of the Fjordell Empire as they descend upon the innocent
it's up to use to save them

Oh Sarene, I think it's time to tell you
That I'm the Prince of Arelon
Oh Sarene, I think the time has come to claim the throne

Oh Sarene, we must protect the city
from Derethi monks and warriors
Oh Sarene, it's up to us to stop this massacre
Track Name: The Millennium Falcon For Christmas
My parents took me to the movies
in the spring of 1979
Something happened to me
as we waited on that line

There was a New Hope in my life

Than later in that December
as we got closer to the holiday
My mother asked me to tell her
What I'd want for Christmas Day

There was just one thing on my mind

I just wanted the Millennium Falcon for Christmas
and a season full of cheer
I just wanted the Millennium Falcon for Christmas
but I didn't get it that year

And then in 1980
when the Empire Struck Back
The YT-1300
survived a Star Destroyer attack

I hoped that I was good enough that year

My mother went to the drugstore
and put the ship on layaway
They told her that it would be ready
in plenty of time for Christmas day

but on Christmas Eve it still wasn't there

I just wanted the Millennium Falcon for Christmas
I was good enough that year
I just wanted the Millennium Falcon for Christmas
and a season full of cheer

My mother cried when they told her that it wasn't there
The clerk said he was sorry but he couldn't find it anywhere
Please don't cry, they have one at our store 30 miles away
I'll go and pick it up so you can have it for Christmas day
