It was dark, and I lost track of time
Listening to my radio
Rock n roll
Looked up at the sky
There's a starman in the sky
I want to meet him, but if have to go to him
I called you to tell you about starman
The news station was talking about him
"There's a starman in the sky, may be dangerous"
In the town
Everyone was crying
We just heard the news
We had 5 years left on Earth
News guy cried when he reported
That earth was dying
Wept so much that I could see
I knew he was not lying
I had a headache
Trying to process what I just heard
Never thought I'd miss these people
We had 5 years
What will we do?
I adventured to Mars
"Tom, take your protein pills and put your helmet on. May God's love be with you"
I was floating in a strange way
The stars look very different today
I'm sitting in a rocket, far from my home
"Your circuits dead, there's something wrong, can you hear me, Tom?"
Stranded on Mars
Is there life on Mars?
I step out of my rocket and explore
I met a man
He had a band
His name was Ziggy
They called themselves the Spiders
Ziggy played guitar, left handed
He became famous
He really sang
Where were the Spiders?
Should we crush his hands?
I had friends now, on Mars
He took it all too far
Made love with his ego
I had to break up the band
Now I felt alone
No way back ...
(I didn't really know what to write so I just mashed up a few David Bowie songs because they seemed sci-fi. I made it into a story.
If you wanna check them out the songs are Starman, Space Oddity, Life on Mars, and Ziggy Stardust. Some of my favorites)
