Track Name: Metro City Meltdown (Gain's Theme)
Steve:

Metro City, 2063.
Towers of steel and hovercraft as far as you can see.
But all the flash and neon hides,
Corruption, crime and violence,
A darker underside.

Wotan the crimelord rules over the streets,
With Metro police on his pay.
His army of cyberthugs who kill and beat,
There's one man who stands in his way.

Narrator:

Gain!
Taking out the bad guys.
Gain!
Penetrate them with his x-ray eyes.

When Metro City's in distress,
Gain's detective skills are the best!

Gain!
Cybernetic P.I.
Gain!
With jetboots that enable him to fly.
They took his wife and kids and more,
Now he's back to settle the score.

Steve:

When cybergoons flee from the scene of the crime,
To places that Gain cannot get,
He just plugs his brain into his sleek cyberdeck,
And finds them on the Net.
Finds them on the Net!

Narrator:

Gain!
Hunting down the crime king.
Gain!
Suddenly, a phone begins to ring.
Track Name: I'm a Dreamer
Steve's Mom:

Look at the clock -- it's nine a.m.
Wake up my Steven, you gotta be leavin'.
You're getting lost in dreamin' again.
People will worry, so you'd better hurry.

Steve:

But mornings are when I'm most creative.
The times when my best ideas arrive.

Steve's Mom:

Your boss won't be so appreciative,
When you tell him that you're dreaming 'bout your book instead of making the drive.

Steve:
I'm gonna be great.

Steve's Mom:
You're gonna be late.

Steve:
I'm a dreamer.
My future is bright.

Steve's Mom:
Your wallet is light.

Steve & Steve's Mom:
I'm a dreamer / Wake up dreamer.

Steve:
And there's only one place for me,
On top of the world.

Steve's Mom:
So much potential, going to waste.
You got expenses, so come to your senses.
You need to eat, and pay rent for your place.
Go write some software, or you'll be on welfare.

Steve:
But I'm almost finished with my novel,
A story of epic cyberpunk.

Steve's Mom:
You'll have to get down and beg and grovel,
When you tell your boss he's less important than your science fictional junk.

Steve:
My dreams are so grand.

Steve's Mom:
Your head's in the sand.

Steve & Steve's Mom:
I'm a dreamer / Wake up dreamer.

Steve:
I've got a great mind.

Steve's Mom:
You're falling behind.

Steve & Steve's Mom:
I'm a dreamer / Wake up dreamer.

Steve's Mom:
And this world has no place for you.
Is this how you repay,
All the years that I've slaved,
Just to make sure you had enough?
What will everyone say,
When they see how you behave?
What a future you had.
You're just like your Dad.
You quit when the going gets tough.

Steve:
And my dreams are the place for me.

Steve's Mom:
You think money grows on trees.

Steve:
I'm happy to dream for free.

Steve & Steve's Mom:
I'm a dreamer / Wake up dreamer!
Track Name: Maximized
The Office Workers:
Program, code, debug, or hit the road!
Program, code!

Office Worker #1:
Checkin' e-mail first thing every day.

Office Worker #2:
Yeah, I do my whole commute on the PDA.

Office Worker #1:
Got a sleek, streamlined cubicle.

Office Worker #2:
Yeah my JavaScript skill's just magical.

Office Worker #1:
Now my workflow solution's always best of breed.
I always stay productive 'cause the coffee's free.

Office Worker #2:
I'm burning up the keyboard with my blazing hands.
I never lose a thing because it's all on the LAN!

Office Workers:
Yeah we're maxim, maximized.
Got my hand on the mouse, got my eyes on the prize.
Yeah we're maxim, maximized.
We're punctual and loyal and organized.

Office Worker #2:
When I'm in my cube I've got just one goal,
Prove my programming skills are the best.
I'll keep doing this until I'm old,
Or at least until my options vest!

Steve:
Can't believe they're like this.
Can they really feel this way?
How can they enjoy this,
Day after dreary day?
Sometimes I feel so different,
Like I just beamed down from space.
How can anyone accept the modern workplace?
Whoa, no!

The Office Workers:
Program, code, debug, or hit the road!
Program, code!

Steve:
How come everybody's in zombie mode?

The Office Workers:
Yeah we're maxim, maximized.
Got my hand on the mouse, got my eyes on the prize.
Yeah we're maxim, maximized.
We're integrated, synergized.
Our RAM is fully utilized.

Steve:
We're thoroughly dehumanized!

The Office Workers:
We're maximized!
Track Name: Steve's Quest Original Cast - He's Got Potential
Sabrina:
He's got potential.
I see his greatness deep inside.
It's something essential.
I see the genius that he hides.
I want to know him.
Want to find out what we can be.
And maybe he'll see,
The potential I have in me.

Rona:
They've all got potential.
So many men who could be great.
It's inconsequential,
Until they show they're worthy mates.
Find one with credentials,
A man who's already going far.
A guy up to par,
With a really cool car,
Who's not so bizarre for you.

Sabrina:
We're all just works in progress,
And we've all got our flaws.
Each one of us needs fixing,
And he's a worthy cause.

Rona:
It's not your job to fix him.
You're not his therapist.
It's his job to create domestic,
And financial bliss!

Sabrina:
He's got potential.
He could do great things in the world.

Rona:
Be more preferential.
Think like an adult and not a girl.

Sabrina:
Soon we'll be together.
Can't wait to investigate and see.
Will it be my fate,
To locate a mate,

Rona:
Who's actually great?

Sabrina & Rona:
With potential for loving me.
Track Name: Give Her The Tour
Ash:
You're here. She's here.
Don't be paralyzed with fear.
You're in the living room,
It happens that the bedroom is near.

Don't fret. Don't frown.
Don't just stand there lookin' down.
You're the lord of this castle,
You think you'd like to show her around, yeah?

Steve:
But there's nothing there to show her.
Of rooms we have but four.
And one of them's the bathroom.
And its cleanliness is poor.

Ash:
Dude, don't be such a bore!
Just give, give her the tour.
'Cause there's adventure,
Behind that door.
Tell her if you like my living room,
I can show you so much more.
And just give,
Give her the tour.

Steve:
No, I don't think you understand the magnitude of the problem here.
My room is strange.
It's full of comic books and games.
If she sees what I've got in there,
She'll act like she doesn't know my name.

Ash:
Don't be lame!
It's your time to score.
You got a shot you can't ignore.
Just think of all the pleasures,
The buried treasures you can explore.

Steve:
That I can explore!

Ash:
There's so much that you can show her.

Steve:
I've got a shelf of Star Wars lore.

Ash:
No, actually, don't show her that.
But you've got something cool, I'm sure.

Steve:
But don't you think she'll turn around and run away,
If she sees my signed posters of Felicia Day,
And my Warwick Davis photos, do you think she'll stay?
I think she won't.

Ash:
Well, I think she may.
And thus I say...
Just give, give her the tour.
Show your inner lion,

Steve:
I'm Steve, hear me roar!

Ash:
Yeah, we'll work on that.
Feel your dormant masculinity, oozing out of every pore.
And just give, give her the tour.
Don't be passive.

Steve:
I'll be active.

Ash:
It's time to live.

Ash & Steve:
And give her the tour!
