"Spaceman" as written by Bob Marlette and Newton K. Martin....
Spaceman
I always wanted you to go
Into Spaceman (Intergalactic Christ)
Spaceman
I always wanted you to go
Into Spaceman (Intergalactic Christ)

Pungent smells
They consummate my home
Beyond the black horizon
Trying to take control
See my girl
She shivers in her bones
The sun and zenith rising
Trying to take us all

There's a fire between us
So where is your god
There's a fire between us
I can't get off the carousel
I can't get off the carousel
I can't get off the carousel
I can't get off this world

This sickening taste
Homophobic jokes
Images of fascist votes
Beam me up
Cause I can't breath
Spaceman
I always wanted you to go
Into Spaceman

It's time to terminate
The great wide world
Morbid fascinations
Television takes control
Decimation different races fall
Electronic information
Tampers with your soul

There's a fire between us
So where is your god
There's a fire between us
I can't get off the carousel
I can't get off this world

This sickening taste
Homophobic jokes
Images of fascist votes
Beam me up
Cause I can't breath

Spaceman
I always wanted you to go
Into Spaceman (Intergalactic Christ)
Spaceman
I always wanted you to go
Into Spaceman (Intergalactic Christ)
Spaceman

    General Commenti suppose that space travel and cosmology is the religion of the future. spaceman is the modern day christ. this song spells out the turmoil of this cesspit of a planet, and this one narrator is fed up with the mundane ordure this planet has to offer. solution: find a new religion in the form of the ethereal and otherworldly. claustrophobia on a global scale, this guy really wants to get the hell of this carousel as we revolve the sun. intersesting use of the word 'man' in this song. is he saying 'spaceman' or 'space...man'?

    General CommentRegarding your first post, I think that that was the main point of the song.... to paraphrase, "Mr Cosmologist, I would like to propel you into the outer reaches of the universe, dude."

    General Commenti had this song stuck in my head for years, because someone played the first 30 seconds and cut it off.
    turn out the actual song is pretty damn cool
    . . .and the lyrics are pretty damn cool. . .

    General Comment'Spaceman, I always wanted you to go into space, man.' Isnt that line just sheer genius? That he differentiates between a spaceman and wanting to boot someone off to space in a simple sentence...absolute class

    General Commenti forgot to mention that images of kubrick's 2001 a space odyssey come to mind when hearing this song. "The sun and zenith rising ; Trying to take us all"- i can't but picture the sun rising above the monolithe around those primitive ape-like creatures. another thing i would like to say is that this song is excellent on all levels and i praise babylon zoo for their profound work.

    General CommentI loved this song when it came out.
    shauncreaney is spot on with the meaning.
    It seems like the world is going to hell in a hand basket and it is time to hop onto a rocket and blast off in search of something new...
