"Spaced" as written by and Joe Perry Steven Tyler....
Spaced in time child of nine
Doin' twenty years on the way
Fire and steel earth unreal
Find another planet to stay
Papa died ma survived
Tellin' me about her ordeal
And the soul she could not feel
'Cause they made her so unreal
Lightnin' years disappears
Twenty million years on my brain
Synthesize overrides
Tryin' to keep from goin' insane
And my soul I can not feel
'Cause they made me so unreal

Spaced enough to know I feel there's nothin' out there
Spaced enough to know I feel I really don't care
Spaced enough to feel I'm really losin' my mind

And I'm never never never never ever goin' back
I'm off the track no one even knows I'm alive
Spaced without a trace
Waitin' for the word to arrive
I'm the last man to survive

    General Commentthis is an ode to a world with no savior
    and alot of nukes and general manmade mayhem
    an inspired fantasy, probably steven's
    probably while high, when you can really open up
    the clue is it is a song of a world with no hope
    1. Steven Tyler survives!!! Help!!! J/K
    2. Waiting for the word to arrive,
    this a reference to John 1:1, the logos of God, The Word, also known as Jesus Christ.
    I'm the last man, means he never arrives
    meaning an inspired fantasy about the world's end
    with no savior

    General Commentwow, this songs hits it for me hard. Some songs l refer to worldly events etc, but l apply this song personally.
    Spaced in time child of nine. (born in Sept)
    Doing 20 years... (l was sent off to boarding school and military school, out at 19, had no idea how to do shit as l was stuck in school for all those years, 20 was a learning experience)
    Find another planet to stay? (l just wanted to disappear to another planet, trying and doing ludes, shrooms etc, no direction)
    my father died when l was 3, 1964, my mother became my best friend. She died in 1968 when l was 7. 2 types of cancer, she knew she was leaving and told me things.Made her so unreal? She lost her hair due to cobalt treatments, had a 14 inch open gap on her back where they kept cutting her open to do all sorts of things, spinal taps etc, guess taking tissue. Rare form of spinal cancer. Had 3 siblings, we were all split up by 1974, tried to keep from going insane started smoking and doing valium, weed etc. Never going back? My grandmother had done what she could, but there was really no home to go back to. Spaced without a trace. l hid and did what l wanted to do, basically being a fuck up. l am the last man to survive. l feel that as the youngest and all siblings have health problems, l will be the last to survive. On a good note, around 22 years old, l straightened out, joined the Army and got married. Still hanging in there at 57! This song helps me realize how far l have come and the obstacles l have overcome. That is why it is such a personal song to me.
