Spacious Thoughts

This song is by N.A.S.A. and appears on the album The Spirit of Apollo (2009).

Yeah, this is a national message
NASA worldwide
One, take the spotlight off me
(Take the spotlight off me)

I remember when the Cubans was first on Broadway
With dark and yellow gold, I was 11 years old
The inspiration was spread out like a blanket, ask em'
My discovery was beyond the pick, the Lee suit and the Afro

Now from the flair jeans on 169th and college
Watching the dude lean on one-seven-o
With a Kangol 'cross America
I saw the hippies cross

By Herc on technique needles syncopated time was on time
The same time as the Beatles
I was up there watching James Brown's pockets
Stuffed with Jolly Ranchers

When the NFL had the Rams in Los Angeles
Charles Finley in Oakland
And my kindergarten moment was the beginning
Till the Caribbean people came to New York
And sheepskin was bought, the wind breaker

The building never fall down
They are the teeth of the town
(Spacious thoughts)
They crush us up in, they grind
The meat and bone of the mind

We gather here on the block
(Spacious thoughts)
They key broke off in the lock
I'll meet you down by the well
I'll meet you down by the well
(Spacious thoughts)

The balloon drops down at midnight
Stranglin' the monkey with the hands of a clock
Good can't help but do a little evil
Evil can't help but do a little good

Who's that singing in the kitchen by the stove?
All aboard for the night train
They say the moon, it smells just like a cherry bomb
Come on home, all is forgiven, everything costs
Deliver us from evil and carry your own cross

The building never fall down
They are the teeth of the town
(Spacious thoughts)
They crush us up in, they grind
The meat and bone of the mind

We gather here on the block
(Spacious thoughts)
They key broke off in the lock
I'll meet you down by the well
I'll meet you down by the well
(Spacious thoughts)

The time gathered with poppy seeds and grass
Growing nobody faster than Jesse Owens
With everything I'm seeing and knowing
London Heathrow

Walking through the airport with green Pro-Keds
Sixty-niners from the designers
Tom McCann above the hill, next to my man, Lou Man
The cardigan sweaters
The still sell the New Eras now at Jew Man

Ghetto Buddha in the second set
Breaking out in a cold sweat
I'll meet you in the music
We meet in the music, those we never met

Keep dancing like there's nobody watching
Everyone can win the toss
I may wander, bit I am never lost

The building never fall down
They are the teeth of the town
(Spacious thoughts)
They crush us up in, they grind
The meat and bone of the mind

We gather here on the block
(Spacious thoughts)
They key broke off in the lock
I'll meet you down by the well
I'll meet you down by the well
(Spacious thoughts)
