Lyrics:
(SPOKEN INTRO)
          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, whoah
Out of nowhere comes a sound, this melody that keeps spinning `round, around
Hear a metal locomotion from this mystic unknown zone

Here in the twilight
Here in the twi-i-i-light
Twilight tone

Unpretentious girl from Memphis, saw the future through a third eye
People came with skepticism, thinking testing her precision, no-oh-oh, whoah-oh
Suddenly, they heard this sound, this melody that keeps spinning `round, around
A signpost up ahead is calling, from this mystic unknown zone

Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twi-i-i-light
Twilight tone

(instrumental break)

Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twi-i-i-light
Twilight tone

(instrumental break)
(some scat)

          (SPOKEN)
          Submitted for your approval
          One Mr. Miller, who is 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, when Mr. Miller had a rare flight
Glenn was up there boppin' a rhythm, then the engines start to listen with him, play the beat,
ohh-whoah
Suddenly, he heard this sound, this melody that keeps spinning `round, around
Now he resides and plays trombone in the mystic unknown zone

Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
Here in the twilight
(fade)
