Кстати, тот текст, который в конце композиции произносит музыкант Casey Young, это его импровизация с явной отсылкой на знаменитый финальный монолог Роя Батти из "Бегущего по лезвию" в исполнении Рутгера Хауэра
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.
Однако в intergalactic Radio Station речь идёт совершенно о других вещах, так "Hi Jon, let's break some rules!" - это обращение к находящемуся в студии вокалисту Джону Андерсону (Jon Anderson), "Polyester landscape, Nylon Oxygen, Ashes to Concrete" - это названия патчей от синтезаторов, "cables in the bend" - звуковые кабели, "Second-hand sounds" - сэмплы). Вот анализ текста, опубликованный давным давно (в 2001 году) кем-то под ником Felle
The last track on the Direct CD, Intergalactic Radio Station is an instrumental tune, with some voicework by Casey Young at the end used as a denuement for the entire album. On first listen it might sound absurdist, but it's really just a speech about what a sound studio. (By the time this was recorded, the album was probably almost finished, and everyone had nothing else in their minds except ending the recordings, so it's understandable that it would be about this) "I've, seen things.. ( reminiscent of ..so many things that you can't believe. Rutger Haeur's death speech in Blade Runner) Past designs, future designs, ('Direct' echoes past Vangelis music strongly ) cables in the bend. (sound studio...) Second-hand sounds, ('voice' samples) future sounds, (synth ) synthesised dialogues. (self-explanatory) Incomprehenseble software. ( bad synth software? ) Hi Jon, let's break some rules! (*) Here comes the sun. (throw-away line, name of Beatles song) We're doing some recordings later Same ol' factory you know here's some names for you, 'Polyester landscape, Nylon Oxygen, Ashes to Concrete.' etcetera.....etcetera.... etcetera..... ( Nylon, Oxygen, etc are all patch names from synthes used ) "Oh, by the way, It's been a beautiful morning, what a morning, great morning, It's a great morning man." - Sung by Casey Young (*) either a reference to Yes singer Jon Anderson who was featured in many Vangelis songs (but not from this album?), or to studio technician Jon Martin, who would speak in the studio while there was a recording session
