"Space Man" as written by Linda Perry and Shaunna Hall....
Starry night bring me down
'Till I realize the moon
It seems so distant yet
I felt it pass right through

And I see what I see
A new world is over me
So I'll reach up to the sky
And pretend that I'm a

Spaceman in another place and time
I guess I'm lookin' for a brand new place
Is there a better life for me?

Subtle wind blow me gone
Let me rest upon your move
I trust I'll end up sleeping
Cradled in my doom

And I feel what I feel
I can't grasp what is not real
So I'll get myself real high
And imagine I'm a

Spaceman, in another place and time
I guess I'm lookin' for a brand new place
Is there a better life for me?

And I remember in my mind
They say I'm a daydreamin'
Is it all that it seems
Or am I all the things I'm looking for? Yeah

yeah, and I see what I see
A new world is over me
And I'll reach up to the sky
And imagine I'm a

Spaceman in another place and time
I guess I'm lookin' for a brand new place
I remember living in a different life
Is there a better life for me?

    General CommentAmazing track. Great for when contemplating your place in the universe, and understanding that there is more to life than our problems. Yearning for escape and knowing the place where you are really is a small speck.

    General CommentThis sounds like it is about drugs and escaping the madness of reality and replacing it with your own kind of madness..

    General CommentLinda Perry is amazing.

    What a great album completely overlooked and absurdly underrated. Typical. Spaceman is one of those tracks that is capable of touching your inner despair with the everyday monotonous reality we all have to deal with. Escaping from life with stimulants of any kind is a basic essential of any normal person's functionality. Stimulants come in many forms from drugs and alcohol, to cigarettes, to prayer, physical activity, reading, video games, music, etc... Disconnecting from reality and putting your heart and soul in another state of mind is priceless. Like all things in life moderation is the key but nonetheless life can be overwhelming to say the least.
