"Thought I Was A Spaceman" as written by and David Rowntree Steven Alexander James....
I thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dunes
In a car park

'Cause the desert had encroached upon
The places where we live
People like me fighting
To keep the demons in

But we never succeeded
We never succeeded
In fact we failed

I thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dunes
In a car park

By the empty harbour
Where the phantoms fall
Fight for happy valley
Sadly, the line broke

I thought I found my black ball
Washed up on the shore
All night lying on us
It was the landfall

I thought I found it
But that was not true at all
I'd walked into a bar
Raise town

Cut the calves without me
Always and always the same
But the ghost is waiting
And let it be

I thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dunes
In high park

I thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dunes
You again

I thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dunes
You again

You again

You again

    General CommentJudging from what Damon said in Made in Hong Kong, it seems to be about feeling lost in a new and unfamiliar area. The "Spaceman" analogy is used because Damon said Hong Kong seemed like a completely different planet to him.
