Fantastic Voyage Lyrics

by David Bowie

In the event that this fantastic voyage
Should turn to erosion and we never get old

Remember it's true, dignity is valuable
But our lives are valuable too

We're learning to live with somebody's depression
And I don't want to live with somebody's depression
We'll get by, I suppose

It's a very modern world but nobody's perfect
It's a moving world but that's no reason

To shoot some of those missiles
Think of us as fatherless scum, it won't be forgotten
'Cos we'll never say anything nice again, will we?

And the wrong words make you listen
In this criminal world

Remember it's true, loyalty is valuable
But our lives are valuable too

We're learning to live with somebody's depression
And I don't want to live with somebody's depression
We'll get by, I suppose

But any sudden movement, I've got to write it down
They wipe out an entire race and I've got to write it down

But I'm still getting educated but I've got to write it down
And it won't be forgotten
'Cos I'll never say anything nice again, how can I?
