Ok here are the riffs with the music: Intro: Riff A Riff B Like a shipwrecked mariner adrift on an unknow sea Clinging to the wreckage of the lost ship Fantasy Riff C I'm a castaway stranded in a desolate land I can see the footprints in the virtual sand RIff A Riff D Net boy, net girl Send your signal round the world Let your fingers walk and talk and set you free Riff D Net boy, net girl Send your message round the world Put your message in a modem and throw it in the Cyber Sea Riff A Riff B Astronauts in weightlessness of pixellated space Exchange graffiti with a disembodied race Riff C and Riff E I can save the universe in a grain of sand I can hold the future in my virtual hand Riff D Net boy, net girl Send your signal round the world Let your fingers walk and talk and set you free Riff D Net boy, net girl Send your message round the world Put your message in a modem and throw it in the Cyber Sea Bridge Riff F Let's dance tonight to a virtual song Press this key and you can play along Riff F Let's fly tonight On our virtual wings Press this key to see amazing things Solo Riff A Riff B Like a pair of vagabonds who wave between to passing trains Or the glimpse of a woman's smile through a window in the rain Riff C and Riff E I can smell her perfume, I can taste her lips I can feel the voltage from her fingertips Riff D Net boy, net girl Send your signal round the world Let your fingers walk and talk and set you free Riff D Net boy, net girl Send your heartbeat round the world Put your message in a modem and throw it in the Cyber Sea Outro:Riff G
