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
