  1. Stunning visuals — and though I wouldn't have expected them to blend with the idiosyncratic lyrics, they actually complement them brilliantly.
    Beautifully done — but where in the world do they come from?

  2. Well, you're going to wind up with something pretty amazing when you combine Al Stewart lyrics with Kurt Vonnegut's story.

    "I was a victim of a series of accidents . . . as are we all!"

  3. ♪♪ I was drawn by the sirens of Titan
    Carried along by their call
    Seeking for a way to enlighten
    Searching for the sense of it all
    Like a kiss on the wind I was thrown to the stars
    Captured and ordered in the army of Mars
    Marching to the sound of the drum in my head
    I followed the call

    Only to be Malachi Constant
    I thought I came to this earth
    Living in the heart of the moment
    With the riches I gained at my birth
    But here in the yellow and blue of my days
    wander the endless Mercurian caves
    Watching for the signs the Harmonians make
    The words on the walls

    I was drawn by the sirens of Titan
    And so I came in the end
    Under the shadow of Saturn
    With statues of birds for my friends
    Finding a home at the end of my days
    Looking around I've only to say
    I was the victim of a series of accidents
    As are we all

    I was drawn by the sirens of Titan (as are we all)
    As are we all
    I was drawn by the sirens of Titan (as are we all)
    As are we all… ♪♪
