♫♫ Starship Trooper .. Live.. ♫♫ This Song is 46 Years Old....



..... and it blows away ANYTHING mainstream nowadays.












"Starship Trooper"

Sister bluebird flying high above
Shine your wings forward to the sun
Hide the myst'ries of life on your way
Though you've seen them, please don't say a word
What you don't know, I have never heard

Starship trooper, go sailing on by
Catch my soul, catch the very light
Hide the moment from my eager eye
Though you've seen them, please don't tell a soul
What you can't see, can't be very whole

Speak to me of summer
Long winters longer than time can remember
The setting up of other roads
To travel on in old accustomed ways
I still remember the talks by the water
The proud sons and daughter
That knew the knowledge of the land
Spoke to me in sweet accustomed ways

Mother life, hold firmly on to me
Catch my knowledge higher than the day
Lose as much as only you can show
Though you've seen me, please don't say a word
What I don't know, I have never shared

Loneliness is a power that we possess to give or take away forever
All I know can be shown by your acceptance of the facts there shown before you
Take what I say in a different way and it's easy to say that this is all confusion
As I see a new day in me, I can also show it you and you may follow

Speak to me of summer
Long winters longer than time can remember
The setting up of other roads
To travel on in old accustomed ways
I still remember the talks by the water
The proud sons and daughter
That knew the knowledge of the land
Spoke to me in sweet accustomed ways

  1. Hey Irish;

    Their "90125" album was also awesome.

    1. I was at the tail end of 8 tracks. I added a Sanyo under dash cassette player to the 78 Monte Carlo.

    2. My last 8 track was a Sanyo quad matrix. Fake quadraphonic, but it sounded wonderful. I used it for years after I took it out of the car. It was bolted to the beam above my workbench and ran off a 1 amp trickle charger. Pink Floyd Meddle, Animals, Umma Gumma, Atom Heart Mother and Saucerful Of Secrets were my staples in the basement. Every once in a while I would fire up Rush's "Necromancer" or Lucifer's Friend doing their title track. Good stuff............

  4. My favourite song from my favourite band. I've been listening to it since the seventies and I could listen to it again three more times today. Thanks Irish and God speed to you Chris Squire.
