"On My Mind"

Lyrics: Maureen S. O'Brien, 6/18 - 10/20/00
Music: to the tune of "Cruiser Dreaming", Bill Sutton
Insp: Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century


HOLMES:
You are always on my mind as I walk these streets.
As before, I plan out your defeat.
Your body has a clone now, with your mem'ries old and black -- 
And so I too have been brought back.

HOLMES AND MORIARTY:
    Am I dreaming? (There's) 
    Towers gleaming, (And) 
    Flying cars, starships, and wonders
    In New London town.
    But while you haunt it, 
    All I really want is
    One more chance to face you, and I 
    Swear I'll bring you down.

H: With my own hands, I once made your grave.

M: Now I live to make this world my slave.

Both:   Our minds are not so different,

(Simultaneously)
H: But you'll never understand 
M: But I'll never understand

(Alone)
H: Why I would die to save this land. 

HOLMES AND MORIARTY:
    Am I dreaming? (There's) 
    Towers gleaming, (And) 
    Flying cars, starships, and wonders
    In New London town.
    But while you haunt it, 
    All I really want is
    One more chance to face you, and I 
    Swear I'll bring you down.
	
MORIARTY:
In another time, you might have 
Been my friend.
But here and now, we two must 
Seek each other's end.
Your Yard uses machin'ry
That would take my soul from me.
You'll never see it used on me.

HOLMES AND MORIARTY:
    Am I dreaming? (There's) 
    Towers gleaming, (And) 
    Flying cars, starships, and wonders
    In New London town.
    But while you haunt it, 
    All I really want is
    One more chance to face you, and I 
    Swear I'll bring you down.
