Dedicated to: David Bowie.

lyrics

Floating through the air like a rocket-ship to mars
See the shining stars, funky lights,
Neon heights, burning like the sun
Before time begun what was it like
Sunset to sunrise
Day and night I toss and turn to try and free my mind

But it’s…

Held down by the chains to the ground
They will never let it free, got to hit jailbreak
Immediately, it’s time to leave, sisters and brothers
The window is open so jump now

Floating through the air like a rocket-ship to mars
See the shining stars, funky lights,
Neon heights, burning like the sun

Like so many great thoughts
It is trapped and confined
But if perception is reality
Than I can cross those lines
Looking back in time
All Da Vinci wanted to do was fly
I’m a dreamer not the only one,
Now we use his designs

So…

Jump high and you might get a view
Forget about what you’re not supposed to do
And let the stars shine through
Next up might be you...Tom!

Chorus

Major Tom to ground control,
Message from outer space
Major Tom to ground control
Here we go….
Ring Ring Ring it’s a call from outer space
Pick up the phone bring it to your face
Super news for super hero the world is at stake
Try to puzzle it out, riddle this, riddle that
‘til your head aches
You walk away
And then the whole earth shakes

The whole earth shakes!

No choice but to take control
Put the cape on you are gold
Always believe in yourself
You’re indestructible
You can, run the race and always win
You can, tear down the wall thick or thin
You can do anything you want, anything you want
Cause the world is yours
The world is yours
The world is yours!
