With a key, you unlock a door to imagination
Beyond it is another dimension
A dimension of sight
A dimension of sound
A dimension of mind

You're moving through a land of both shadow and substance
Of things and ideas
Guiding you through this wondrous journey
Is the hypnotic sound of the twilight tone

When I hear this melody
This strange illusion takes over me
Through a tunnel of the mind
Perhaps a present or future time, oh oh

Out of nowhere comes this sound
This melody that keeps spinning 'round and 'round
Pyramidal locomotion
From a mystic unknown zone

Hearin' the twilight
Hearin' the twilight, twilight tone

Unpretentious girl from Memphis
Saw the future through her third eye
People came with skepticism
Picking, testing her precision, no, wo, oh, oh

Suddenly they heard this sound
This melody that keeps spinning 'round and 'round
A signpost up ahead is calling
Through the mystic unknown zone

Hearin' the twilight
(Twilight swept away, feelin' the rhythm)
Hearin' the twilight
(Twilight swept away, ba da, loo da, ba da loo da)
Hearin' the twilight, twilight tone

Hearin' the twilight
(Twilight swept away, feelin' the rhythm)
Hearin' the twilight
(Twilight swept away, ba da, loo da, ba da loo da)
Hearin' the twilight, twilight tone

Submitted for your approval
One Mr. Miller, who's about to take a trip
Into oddness and obsolescence
Through a zone whose boundaries are that of imagination
Accompanying him on this journey is the mesmerizing
Sound of the twilight tone

On a cold and rainy night
One Mister Miller had a rare flight
Glen was up there boppin' a rhythm
Then the engine stopped to listen with him play that beat, oh, oh

Suddenly he heard this sound
This melody that keeps spinning 'round and 'round
Now, he resides and plays trombone
In the mystic unknown zone

Hearin' the twilight
(Hearin' the twilight)
Hearin' the twilight
(Hearin' the twilight)

Hearin' the twilight
(Hearin' the twilight)
Hearin' the twilight
(Hearin' the twilight)

Hearin' the twilight
(Hearin' the twilight)
Hearin' the twilight
(Hearin' the twilight)
