The Last AlleyThe Mexican Wave had lived in this city his whole life.
And he'd seen every last inch.
Well, actually many - but they were all in the one place.
The Last Alley.
Off he went!
And uh oh! There was trouble there. A Ghost attack!
The Ghosts are a notorious F-City gang. They can barely be seen until they strike. They wail and terrify. They scatter your things everywhere. If you find them within 24 hours, you can have them back.
They are motivated only by the haunt.
Mex didn't know what hit him. He fell hard.
It wasn't like him to lose the upper hand.

'Round MidnightSee "Changed around midnight" just rolls off the tongue
I may be the loudest but I'm not the one
Just keep looking City; your hero will come
For I'm just a space captain caught on the run
A girl with a twirl says I bought her a pearl?

Still, a garden or two and a globe would be nice

But that's not for sale, not for me, not for keeps
There's a stir in the night as the ladyfair sleeps
A new day dawns and the sky is all changed
The space captain's gone, but it's nothing deranged
A captain is doomed both for now and for then
To change around midnight again and again
