Lyrics

Didn't know what time it was and the lights were low
I leaned back on my radio
Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul, he said
Then the loud sound did seem to fade

Space... The new frontier

Saw him at Carnegie Hall with the Spiders, again at Radio City on the Aladdin Sane tour. The Diamond Dogs tour screwed everyone up. We were expecting Ziggy but the Thin White Duke showed up. He was always good at giving us what we didn't expect
All I can say is he is one of those individuals that I'll always follow...i feel close.

Sounds like David Bowie, and I agree aliens exist and have been here, and are coming back en masse.

The Mick Ronson guitar hook is about as good as it gets..

What most people don't know is that the US Gov't and most all other major world governments have been covering up the truth on our friendly alien visitors. Anyone who does any research on this will be overwhelmed with the evidence. Try "UFO's - Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go On The Record" by Leslie Kean for starts. It will absolutely blow you away.
