Starship Lyrics - Paul Kantner

Review The Song (3)



Words: Kantner, Slick, Balin, Blackman
Music: Kantner

What you gonna do when you feel your lady rollin'
How you gonna feel when you see your lady strollin'
On the deck of the starship
With her head hooked into Andromeda
C'mon Hijack
Gotta get back and ahead to the things that matter
Amerika hates her crazies
And you gotta let go you know
gotta let go you know
gotta let go you know
gotta let go you know or else you stay
SPILLIN' OUT OF THE STEEL GLASS
GRAVITY GONE FROM THE CAGE
A MILLION POUNDS GONE FROM YOUR HEAVY MASS
sponsored links
ALL THE YEARS GONE FROM YOUR AGE
Hydroponic gardens and forests
Glistening with lakes in the Jupiter starlite
Room for babies and Byzantine dancing astronauts of renown
The magician and the pantechnicon
Take along the farmer and the physician
We gotta get out and down
Back into the future
Beyond our own time again
Reachin' for tomorrow
It's so fine Starshine
THE MELTING ACID FEVER STREAKIN' THRU MY MIND
MAKES IT OH SO DIFFICULT TO SEE YOU
AND OH SO EASY TO TOUCH YOU
I MELT WITH YOU
FEEL WITH YOU
MAKE LOVE FOR YOU
AT YOU
AROUND YOU
I LOVE YOU

Dear Brumus, the ship'll be ours and you got to roll with it
Though your master's head's blown off you got to go with it
Roll with the natural flow
Like water off a spinning ball
Out - the one remaining way to go
Free - the only way to fall
The light in the night is the sun
And it can carry you around the planetary ground
And the planetary whip of the sun
Will carry you well past Gideon
And the people you see will leave you be
more than the ones you've known before
Hey - rollin' on
We come and go like a comet
We are wanderers
Are you anymore?
The land is green and you make it grow
And you gotta let go you know
You gotta let go you know
You gotta let go you know
Or else you stay
MANKIND GONE FROM THE CAGE
ALL THE YEARS GONE FROM YOUR AGE
At first
I was irridescent
Then
I became transparent
Finally
I was absent

Thank you, kerby, for your input about my review of "BLOWS AGAINST THE EMPIRE". I must now brag that in recent years I've not turned several newer friends onto this album (and most fun of all to "THIRTY SECONDS OVER WINTERLAND" & "BLESS ITS POINTED LITTLE HEAD" but have also introduced many to Mike, the computer, PIXEL! (still walking through walls), MAMA MAUREEN & HILDY CORNERS & DEETY, as well as Woodrow Smith`s 900`ish years younger twin sisters, Laz & Lor, but have also introduced some to being able to Grok. Some I Share Water with. The Dream Lives On. OMM



Further Data | Reviewer: Kerby Jackson | 9/30/07

Kantner, Slick and a Who's Who of San Francisco rock making one of the finest albums of all time, an aching, roaring wishdream for all of us who mourn the slow death of the space program. Two corrections to Winestone Cowboy's review: The album was nominated for a Hugo the year it came out, but didn't win. And, although Kantner has said it was inspired by Heinlein's novel Methuselah's Children, the only noticable connection is the idea of hijacking the planet's first workable starship. Kantner also says he wrote to Heinlein for persission to use the idea and was given it.



Surrealistic and Transcendental | Reviewer: Winestone Cowboy | 6/5/05

As one who's not only heard the album since it was new, but saw the original Starship, minus Jorma, Cassidy, Winwood and Garcia, but with Papa John Creech perform the entire album, I can say that it's magnificent and a great representation of the best of Homo Sapiens dreams and possibilities.

I understand that the album was awarded a Special Hugo Award, as it was a straight adoption of Heinlein's original story, where he introduced Lazarus Long.
