Ok here are the riffs with the music:

Intro: Riff A

Riff B
    Like a shipwrecked mariner adrift on an unknow sea
    Clinging to the wreckage of the lost ship Fantasy

Riff C
    I'm a castaway stranded in a desolate land
    I can see the footprints in the virtual sand

RIff A

Riff D
    Net boy, net girl
    Send your signal round the world
    Let your fingers walk and talk
    and set you free

Riff D
    Net boy, net girl
    Send your message round the world
    Put your message in a modem
    and throw it in the Cyber Sea

Riff A

Riff B
    Astronauts in weightlessness of pixellated space
    Exchange graffiti with a disembodied race

Riff C and Riff E
    I can save the universe in a grain of sand
    I can hold the future in my virtual hand

Riff D
    Net boy, net girl
    Send your signal round the world
    Let your fingers walk and talk
    and set you free

Riff D
    Net boy, net girl
    Send your message round the world
    Put your message in a modem
    and throw it in the Cyber Sea

    Let's fly tonight
    On our virtual wings
    Press this key
    to see amazing things

Solo

Riff A

Riff B
    Like a pair of vagabonds who wave between to passing trains
    Or the glimpse of a woman's smile through a window in the rain

Riff C and Riff E
    I can smell her perfume, I can taste her lips
    I can feel the voltage from her fingertips

Riff D
    Net boy, net girl
    Send your signal round the world
    Let your fingers walk and talk
    and set you free

Riff D
    Net boy, net girl
    Send your heartbeat round the world
    Put your message in a modem
    and throw it in the Cyber Sea
