Bigger On The Inside Written by More Or Les Leslie Seaforth (SOCAN) VERSE ONE: It was a type Forty Mark three T-A-R-D- I-S, awfully gorgeous. Called me to her to leave my home world and I could not resist, so I said Goodbye to Boredom. Started her up, started exploring the universe - time-and space, because the ship can do the two of 'em. (The) Alien race that I'm a part of's into ruling 'em - well, more like overseeing. And that was my problem: being unable to experience anything, due to “noninterference” (rules). Not in the spirit of livin'. So my mission: live life to the fullest. Easily accomplished, wit this magic trick I'm pulling called Regeneration. Recover from any fatal wound, but my personality changes with my appearance too. From holding a walking stick to a recorder, playing tunes; reversing polarity flows; wearing a scarf six meters too long; real strong cricket game; sneaky plans too fantastic to simply say "allons y" to. Ramble everywhere and get into trouble quite swiftly, for nine-hundred years of adventure - but feels like fifty! CHORUS: My ship travels through space and time, and is bigger on the inside (3 x’s) My ship travels through space and time, and is bigger… VERSE TWO: ...due to Trans dimensional Physics. I'm planning to visit every possible world if I'm given the opportunity, but the one I see most often is Earth. Of all the ones aliens wanna’ take over, it's the first on their list. And since Time can be rewritten, I will fight to keep a heart and time piece tickin’ with no guns. No fun for some. Me? I'd rather use my brain, two hearts, and sonic screwdriver to kill no one. Show up not always where I wanna’ go but need to go even though I set the correct coordinates, “insubordinate machine!” Stumble upon a scene, reveal an evil scheme, topple a whole regime just in time for tea at Breakfast – ‘cause it's a time machine - you never have to wait for Breakfast! Lest I stress it: yes, it's best if you let me drive - a causal nexus wrecked is cause to get upset, with Reapers next to flex, since -- CHORUS: My ship travels through space and time, and is bigger on the inside (4 x’s) VERSE THREE: Time Lord renegade from the planet Gallifrey, always on the run, escape death traps, and left back aliens on earth get saved. But usually impress a human and gain a companion traveling wit me - stay in that old ship that's disguised itself as a police box made on twentieth century Earth. No change: Chameleon circuit is to blame. Guess that's just left at that form forever. Endeavour to better the whole of Space and never surrender to cosmic offenders, no matter they’re men or giant salt and pepper shakes. Great that they never got into the ship, 'cause the TARDIS state of grace is always on the fritz, and the Eye of Harmony getting ripped open is a hitch nobody wants – every sun exploding stops a lotta stuff from happening. Run a ship, but not the captain - a Doctor: the man who makes people better. Don't bother to ask for my name, it’ll never be spoken. Better off to ask if it's cool to wear a Fez. The answer is "yes"!

Get Exterminated! Written by More Or Les Leslie Seaforth (SOCAN) VERSE ONE: From the underground of a burned out planet known as Skaro, the birth occurred of a great evil we will see terrorize tomorrow: A mutant form of humanoid due to generations of fighting with chemicals, radiation in combination wit' abominations of science by the Chief Scientist of the, Kaled people – Davros – in a conflict with the Thals, that lasted for about a thou, with no clear winner just a mound of dead land to fight over. Down to end the planetary comp with a mutant locked into a tank that'll wipe you out: it's the Mark Three Travel Machine, equipped wit a death ray and polycarbonate armor that's hard to scratch, let alone penetrate. To make the mutants killers, all useful emotions, but their hate were removed, and accelerate their evolution and get the name "Dalek" – an anagram of the word "Kalled". And Kalleds had debate (debate) on whether or not these mutants should live. But the meeting was just some bait (some bait) to kill opposition. Not listen to even their creator. Just take the whole universe you'll hear the words "exterminate." CHORUS (2 x’s): Conquering your planet with no way for you to withstand it are creatures from another world that are more horrible than you could imagine. You could try to fight back - you'll get exterminated. You might think you might last - you'll get exterminated! VERSE TWO: Twenty-One Fifty Seven, they descended from the sky on planet Earth. The defenses were ineffective. In seven years, took every last resource – one after the other – trouble for the human race. Getting saved was not in the cards at the start; turned a lotta people into slaves. They were named Robomen. Forced to do their bidding drilling the earth, to make it into weapon – and the not first planet to get that. But they got jerked by an old man, three companions. Damaged all their plans, but manage having a second go at the scenario - that was to kidnap lotsa planets. And it was done all over time and space - they made plans bolder (bolder). Teamed up with their maker (maker) to make a bomb to blow up (blow up) all reality. Savagery mixed with science, means tragedy for uncounted worlds. Battle the Time Lords - what kind of audacity Daleks have!? But it ends badly. The Time War got locked (locked) to save the universe from madness and the awesome onslaught (slaught) of evil unleashed by cunning creatures that simply seek to be the dominant species by killing each and every one of us to be it! CHORUS (2 x’s) © Leslie Seaforth 2013.

The Sound Of Drums Written by More Or Les Leslie Seaforth (SOCAN) VERSE ONE: The choice for you all is simple: continued existence under my guidance or total annihilation. My persuasion's hypnotic. And on occasion I get termed a psychotic, by a petty man (who) dares to call himself "Doctor." Thinking he's smart, but he won't stop the plans in motion, more than he could surmise, with an inflated ego happily brought down to size with my Tissue Compression Eliminator. Intimidate a galaxy of races, I'll soon be enslaving with some giant weapon. Like when I erased a part of the universe. Who knew to kill a few mathematicians could cause perdition. It was my suspicion, but it's not my profession. “Universal domination's” the main thing, “Make play things of everything that lives,” is my second. CHORUS: I am the Master – you will obey me. All space and time is mine for the taking. I am the Master – you will obey me. Death and destruction to those who betray me. I am the Master – you will obey me. Like the sound of drums, you cannot escape me VERSE TWO: The drumming – the call to War. It's been that way since I looked into the vortex as a child, in my brain. Some say I lost it. Having Time and all of Space in my head caused it, some might say. But the way I view it, is lots of worlds are out there for the taking. Shaping the whole universe to my image – it's "Pray to your deity Time.” Probably just me in disguise, taking your world but convince you to just hand it to me I even got to subjugate the last of humanity. Turn them into death machines. Can you imagine the look on the face of the Doctor just watching the people he holds dear in his heart go back in time, and tear ancestors apart? I even do dirty work for Gallifrey. Glad I'm paid in extra regenerations, cause I have plans to make! CHORUS © Leslie Seaforth 2013.

Rose Full Of Tears Written by More Or Les Leslie Seaforth (SOCAN) VERSE: Grabbed your hand and said "run for your Life." Don't remember much else that was said to you at the time, but a feeling of fright that comes back again once or twice was felt, on top of the thrill of meeting this guy. Saved your life and the world at the same time. Invited you to see the wonders of Life, but still, there's some anguish behind his eyes. Mentions a Time War every once in a while. The last of the Time Lords; still able to smile. Finds joy in sadness, peace in some madness. Tries to make good from lives that get tragic Passion for everyone he meets. passing that gift on to you. Feels like magic. Lasting all your life. And that's the plan since. Traveling with him's as good as you can have it. Trade the Council Housing for adventure. Save the universe more times than could be measured. Pressured by your mom and boyfriend ta’ stay home. But that's not the plan - ain't no way you're gonna’ stop the travel. But "Bad Wolf" – two words that lead to battle - just unravel your life. More fights than you could ever handle with Daleks, that gets worse – you get abandoned. Sent back home to lead a normal life, while he's trapped in the future losing a fight of cosmic proportions. Of course you're never gonna’ accept that as your reality. He never asked to be helped, but now he needs it. Proceed wit a plan to get the ship but need him to operate the thing, until you released its energy from its core. Back to the future once more to defeat the Daleks and save his life, but at a price - it's possible the energy might just kill you. Healed you with a kiss that didn't thrill you, filled with sadness since he absorbed it all at the expense of his own Life. But he's a Time Lord, so he won't die in the way that regular people know. No need to cry Rose, he gets reborn. CHORUS (2x’s): Nothin hurts more to see than a Rose full of tears. But wit a doctor's help, I'm sure you will get rid a all of your fears. He only wants the best, and there's no one else he would rather appear by his side. And it's clear just why you're here. © Leslie Seaforth 2013.

Magic Blue Box Written by More Or Les Leslie Seaforth (SOCAN) VERSE ONE: It wasn't my fault – I set the navigation perfectly to take us back from Pangaea, hundred thousand B.C.E, to Shoreditch London, Twenty-Third of November, Nineteen-Sixty-Three, and not the desolate future planet where we were actually stranded. When we landed I blamed it on the mercury filled fluid links. So complicated, Twentieth-Century humans didn't know who to think was more to blame for bad directions: me or the machine. Traveling through Time and Space, and places in between Is recondite, sophisticated, convoluted business. Especially wit a decommissioned capsule lacking the fitness to make trips as planned. Plus, I'm only one man, running a ship that needs a crew of six pilots to command. And I don't mean companions; I prefer to do the flying. I mean dematerialization. Automation's not compliant. I've seen the greatest computers malfunction and break. That's why Time Lords made them sentient. The biggest mistake is letting them have any kinda’ say in all the decisions you make. You know, you wanna’ get to Sheffield, Nineteen-Seventy-Nine. Of course you end up in the Eighteen-Seventy-Nine Scottish Moors. Or forever lost trying to get to Heathrow Airport to sort your gobby Aussie friend out wit her job. Navigating the vortex to Vegas Eighty-Three shouldn't be hard, but there you are in a Russian sub, HADS is on, TARDIS gone, Warrior from Mars unthawed – you don't even get to play the slots! CHORUS (2 x’s): Vanished quickly, so you don't believe what you saw. Sounding creaky, like a car that needs some new shocks. And run by this guy who's sillier than you thought. It's just a madman and his magic blue box. VERSE TWO: Can't a Time Lord catch a break? After I had to regenerate, I tested ship fitness - thought I'd be two minutes Was a few years late by mistake – twelve to be exact. I came back, the whole world was at stake, thanks to giant morphing snake and over-eager space cops. A little girl was grown up by the time I showed up faced lots of distrust, and it sucked, but Earth needed savin'. Just a hiccup that glitched up the chronal navigation Is how I came late. No debate that coordinates for space sometimes get messed up. Yes, I can fess up that South Croydon, UK is nowhere next to Aberdeen. Just a slight inaccuracy, considering the Galaxy, alone, okay. The planet Zeta Minor in the future instead of Seventy-Five, London is the kinda' mistake that suits a bumbling oaf. What I mean though, is I don't make that kinda error. What I mean, is hardly ever. Well, at least for a guy who regenerates. CHORUS (2 x’s) © Leslie Seaforth 2013.

Tenth Planet Written by More Or Les Leslie Seaforth (SOCAN) INTRO: Between the orbits of Mars and Venus – the planet wit people that can't be defeated. (3x’s) Between the orbits of Mars and Venus – Cybernetic people. You'll be deleted. VERSE ONE: Between the orbits of Venus and Mars, a planet of people to do you some harm just like Earth, just evolved In a way that would make you look soft. Just did away wit emotions and hard metal parts got installed. Now it's on with a planet at large that metal men attached rockets to launch. Fall apart? But you're wrong. They showed up to siphon energy off the planet Earth. Don't even think about war, ‘cause the cost is the loss of human life in a number that's large. It's metal might with electrical shocks, lasers, cobalt bombs, and the drive to upgrade any and all. It's even hard to fight what you become. If you could, you’d blow off your own head. So your feelings are blocked with technology to keep you on lock. You've turned into the cog of a death machine. Forever deemed a terror. Be relentlessly a menace. "Cybermen" is what you're called. CHORUS: Unwilling subjects become perfect soldiers, with a sole purpose: universal takeover A cybernetic legion is very hard to damage with all emotions gone, started on the Tenth Planet. Unwilling subjects become perfect soldiers, with a sole purpose: universal takeover An army of beings half metal, half organic, upgrade or delete. Beware the Tenth Planet. VERSE TWO: Started on a world slightly different from your own - whether it's Planet oh-three in a different reality or it's Planet one-oh in the reality of your own. A world you didn't know was real close to your home returned from the unknown to steal body and soul, put steel inside your dome. Episode's just like a clone attack. And the start is cell phones attached to your hips, then ear pods feed all the stats including brainwashing software. Pain doesn't stop there. Nothing' some Glitter Gun gold dust on a respiratory tract couldn't match. But a psychological cost where your brain snaps and you don't get any memories back. Straight fact: you wouldn't wanna’ remember the hack job they did to your bod' that they think's a proper mod. They think of the humans, their difference and their pain. They suffer in the skin, and must get the upgrade. CHORUS © Leslie Seaforth 2013.

Travel Companions Written by More Or Les Leslie Seaforth (SOCAN) I've Been traveling with the Doc, but only just for a minute, when we arrived on a spot and quickly became the victims of a mental assault. Strange aliens attacking his brain. To make it stop, he asked me to keep him chatting. It gave him a focus, so he could start to battle them. He he started babbling 'bout all the people he met traveling. I didn't know so many more came before me, and in his rough state, he began to tell their stories. First: his granddaughter Susan. Loved what he was doin', even when the Time Lords refused him, even when he stole a capsule to get in some travel. She went with him. That old man would need some humanoid companionship. And the git got more than he bargained when he parked in a junkyard on Earth. Susan got followed. Her teachers wanted to speak ta’ her guardian, but then it only got worse for Chatterton and Barbara. Now on a journey through Time and Space. Hated them at the start, but Earthlings grew on him. He knew Sue was in love with one, so he left her behind. Who wouldn't want the best for their granddaughter? That was a trend starter: meet folks, lose folks, rescue them from slaughter like Vicky, or Stevan Taylor – stowaway on the TARDIS. Conflicts with aliens will get some of them in real danger. Sara Kingdom aged ta’ an early death. Was I next? Katarina kidnapped and blown out an airlock. How long have I got? Shook my head and ignored the thought. Meeting people didn't stop anyway. Dodo sneezed (and) nearly killed the human race. Ben and Polly saw him regenerate to a newer face Victoria saved from Daleks. An unlikely pair, you could say of Astrophysicist genius and the warrior that came from Scotland circa Seventeen-Forty-Six – that was Zoe and Jamie – forced to forget their trips after Doc got caught by his people again. That was a trend. Forced regeneration and left to fend for himself on Earth, he just went to work for UNIT – a Task Force (and) overqualified to do it. In charge was the Brigadier Lethbridge Stuart, (and) Liz Shaw on the Science. Jo Grant got into it thanks to Daddy pulling strings, but proved herself when things got hellish won't regret it, cause the planet got defended on a weekly basis. Enter: Sarah Jane Smith, a brave investigative journalist – one of his favourites. Harry Sullivan came a few times, but faced it: he wasn't really up for the unpredictable changes in Life, and Sarah Jane was forbidden to go with him to his home. Wasn't for long that he travelled alone. He met the Sevateem Tribe warrior named Leela, put a knife to your neck if you ever displease her. But she just stayed behind wit K-9 on Gallifrey, and she was safe, so that's fine – he made the Mark Two. Then forced to talk to the White Guardian and get a new partner too Romanadvoratrelundar: a sub par Time Lady at the start, but proved to have the smarts to find the Key to Time. In time, she had the heart for adventure. That led them to E-Space where she stayed aground. They found a boy named Adric: a stowaway – continued with him, met Nyssa and Tegan to know the weight of loss: to lose an aunt, a father, entire home planet, and Adric on a ship that crashed in- to Earth in the past. This act wiped out the dinosaurs. (You) can't cross your timeline to save people you might've lost. That would rip a whole in the Space-Time Continuum "brave heart, Tegan." They all got on, and continued with adventures. The venture became too much eventually. Nyssa left to heal the sick; Tegan, to save her sanity. But not before Turlough arrived alien working for the Black Guardian as a spy. This seemed to be a theme: Kamelion, an android, taken over by the Master for evil schemes. Turlough repented, went back to his people. Kamelion accepted that he'd never be free so, he asked to be dropped. Got stopped from kidnapping a young botany student wit a very odd accent by the name of Peri, wearing very low scoop tops. Melanie was almost the opposite, ‘cause she knew lots, always had a sunny disposition and a photographic memory. If you ever need something blown to smithereens, best call an Ace. But don't ever call her Dorothy, called him the Professor, while Grace called him abnormal. She had no idea when she was operating on him, he had two hearts. Nearly stopped his regeneration, but played a huge part in stopping Armageddon. But he couldn't stop forgetting what he did for what seemed like a lotta years; maybe nine. Then he said the name "Rose," when I tried, to find out more about her, he just said "another time, another place." Adam Mitchell was a waste. Better off with Captain Jack, despite his flirting ways set to "maximum". Mickey finally came, ‘cause he was jealous of the action when Rose was away. But he lost all of them – an accident – too much to explain. Martha Jones first got trapped in a Hospital on the moon. But pretty soon she was traveling with the Doc. He told me of an alt’ timeline when the Master had nearly killed them all but she acted with the utmost of courage, just to save him, her fam’ and the whole planet. She stayed; He left to hang with a temp from Chiswick who was more than she insisted she was, because, simply she was to become the most important person in the universe. Stopped the Daleks, but at a price: forget it or lose the rest of her Life. Her mind would burn, so the Doc had to block the trauma. She'd never know that aliens would be singing 'bout Donna. This drama proved to be too much. He needed a break, despite meeting Astrid, or Wilfred or Jackson Lake, or meeting Lady Christina DeSouza or Adelaide on Mars. Had a little problem there playing God. New start: Met Amy Pond, “the girl who waited too long.” Nearly lost her husband to the past and her daughter to the future. Then there was Doctor River Song; had Romance in reverse – knew all about him while he grew ta’ fall in love. Sadly that’s not enough. Angels would stop the run of good luck with Amy and Rory. Sent back to the past. This changes the story of their whole life. They were Trapped, but together, so they made it through alright. But “wrong” for the Doc, who was lost and distraught, ‘til he came across a girl of impossibilities, burnt chocolate soufflé, and stories carried in a leaf. And then a little later, he met me. © Leslie Seaforth 2013.
