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 looking 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 looking for a brand new place

Is there a better life for me?

I remember in my mind

They say I'm daydreaming

Is it all that it seems

Or am I all the things I'm looking for? ?ooh!

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 looking for a brand new place

I remember living in a different life

Is there a better life for me?

    General Comment:Amazing 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 Comment:This sounds like it is about drugs and escaping the madness of reality and replacing it with your own kind of madness..

    General Comment:Linda 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.
