Some other versions of "Spaceman"

sample: "hey"
a grinning empty eyesocket moon hoists itself up into the pale evening sky
and hangs there like a day old suicide

a stickey shower of radioactive moonbeams
cascades from the tops of nearby urban structures
causing indescriminate loss of limb to several innocent passers by
as well as general madness all around

sample: "hey"
I survey the damage from a blind alley doorway
to which i have been glued for most of the day
having been inadvertantly papered over by a bleary eyed bill poster
sometime before dawn

eventually i muster the energy to extricate myself from my predicament
as it is time for me to make my apoiinted rounds
of all the nearby potential sources of aluminum cans
it is my sworn duty to collect all the cans in the area
and convert them into us currency at a secret government installation
whose location is known only to me

later, having acquired enough money to keep myself in the lifestyle to which i am accustomed
i find myself back on the street
i scan the crowds until i see someone who is obviously insane
and then i follow that person until they go into a building or get into a car
in order to make sure that they don't do anything crazy

while i am engaged in this pursuit
a nonstop stream of firetrucks and police cars
race up and down the boulevard
sirens blaring looking for
invisible emergencies no one seems to notice

after a while i move on to the rest of my agenda for the evening
scheduled activities inlcude a short but passionate affair with
a curvaceous bottle of my favorite alcoholic beverage

presently i find myself holding court from a bus stop on
the corner of Commerce and Pearl
from whence i regale the passing crowds
with my perceptive insights into the nature of reality
an appreciative throng hangs on my every word

it begins to rain
but everyone is concentrating so intently on me
that they are oblivious to the downpour

the water makes me light
i begin to levitate
i float up off the sidewalk and past the top of the telephone pole
a thousand eyes follow me upward
a big black cloud opens up
and i zip through it at full tilt
going faster all the time

look at me
I'm above the clouds
the moon is laughing at me
look at me
the earth is getting smaller
look at me
I'm out in space
look at me
I'm a space man

sample: "hey"
look at me
I'm a space man

sample: "hey"
look at me
I'm a space man
