Spaceman Tune

Songs of Ascension : Track 11

I went out astral walking
Just the other day
I thought I saw a spaceman
Come to guide me on my way
I turned to shake his hand
And he exploded full of love
A silence came around
And a voice from up above

"Don't listen to the sinners son, they're all after your soul
Just get your shit together, go and play some rock 'n roll
I'll show you notes and chords that are, dying to be free
You can sing your song of rainbows, as you sail the galaxy"

My funky boots were shaking, as I took a magic step
A unicorn came calling, and I knew my task was set
He told me that the secret, was to always close my eyes
I held my breath and held on tight… then I realized

It's all in my head
Strange kinda magic, don't it taste so sweet
It's all in my head
My feet are dancing to a funky, cosmic, Beat

So I picked myself a song, from the tree of life
My melody was calling, she wants to be my wife
Felt my guitar, as she was dancing in my hand
I knew that it was time to leave, this all harmonizing land

(pause)

My body started aching, I was waking with my groove
Turning on frustration, It was time for me to move
It was then I saw a smile, under a Cheshire moon
Because I'm coming home to sing you all, my funky…Spaceman tune

It's all in your heads
Strange kinda magic, don't it taste so sweet
It's all in your heads
Your feet are dancing to a funky cosmic
…(Beat)

Don't listen to the sinners son, they're all after your soul
Just get your shit together, Go and play some rock'n roll
I've shown you notes and chords that were, dying to be free
You can sing my song of rainbows, as you sail the galaxy
Sail the galaxy

I'm sailing, I'm sailing
I'm Raving, I'm Raving

Wo!
