Still don't know what I was waiting for/and my time was running wild 
As they pulled you out of the oxygen tent/they asked for the latest party

Ground control to Major Tom 
They Pulled In just behind the fridge/He lays her down, he frowns

I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel/There's a voice in my head that drives my heel 
No one knows what it's like/to be the bad man, to be the sad man 
No, I don't know where I'm goin'/But I sure know where I've been 
Sitting on the park bench/eyeing idle girls with bad intent 
It's gettin' near dawn/When lights close their tired eyes
