about

The intrepid Captain Cook is the man in charge of the time machine's faulty engine. He is constantly trying to fix it, to extend it's range beyond 10 seconds, whilst dealing with the intellectual musings of Joseph Banks, Leibniz and Herschel. Roll the dice.

lyrics

Down in the hold
You can find the captain
Keeping the engine clean
Rules the machine
Needs the feel of the steam
It's a sauna

When you step inside
You can feel the heat of the gamma rays
Then the lights go dim
The fires begin to glow

He's got trouble down in the engine room
Every new idea needs an ending

Down in the hold
You can find the captain
Processing everything
He says 'talking is cheap, dreams are meant for your sleep'
He wants the answer

He's got trouble down in the engine room
Every new idea needs an ending
He's got trouble down in the engine room
Every new idea breaks the process down into pieces
Disengage to analyse the problem,
He's a fixer

In his dominion
Cook is the captain
Pushing the boat out one more time

He can't fix his broken engine
