I saw you staring out of your own abyss again Waiting for something you're not sure even still exists Don't be afraid to wonder, don't be afraid to be scared It should never be a prison So I apologise if you feel something But love is all we have, feel something, I know Or if I steal something, please, remember it was mine If I steal something, ah, ah, ah

"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
