Space Dog

Album: Under the Pink (1994)
  • Way to go Mr. Microphone
    Show us all what you don't know
    Centuries secret societies
    He's out commander still
    Space Dog

    So sure we were on something
    Your feet are finally on the ground he said
    So sure we were on something
    Your feet are just on the ground girl

    Rain and snow
    Our engines have been receiving your eager call
    There's Colonel Dirtyfishydishcloth
    He'll distract her good
    Don't worry so

    And to the one you thought was on your side
    She can't understand
    She truly believes the lies

    Lemon pie
    He's coming through
    Our commander still Space Dog
    Lines secure Space Dog

    Deck the halls
    I'm young again
    I'm you again
    Racing turtles
    The grapefruit is winning
    Seems I keep getting this story twisted
    So where's Neil when you need him
    Deck the halls
    It's you again
    It's you again
    Somewhere someone must know the ending
    Is she still pissing in the river now
    Heard she's gone
    Moved into a trailer park

    So sure we were on something
    Your feet finally on the ground he said
    So sure we were on something
    You feet just on the ground girl
    So sure we were on something
    Your feet finally on the ground he said
    So sure we were on something
    Your feet are just on the ground Writer/s: TORI ELLEN AMOS

  • Zakia from Columbia, ScFor some reason this song always reminds me of those stories in the 80's and 90's about women being excluded from military academies and high ranking positions in the Armed Forces...then those who successfully entered those ranks were subjected to even worse sexual discrimination, assaults and degradation by their male and women counterparts, in order to maintain the status quo. Tori often refers to women betraying other women and sexual assault/aggression in her lyrics.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnI love this song, the lyrics are so true even though they are obscure.
  • Cylia from Lucasville, OhNot only does Tori Amos refer to Neil Gaiman in her albums, but he also refers to her in his Books. For example, in Stardust, Neil created a part for Tori in the book as a tree that warns Tristran about the witches who wish to kill Evaine for her heart.
