“There would have been no Sex Pistols if it wasn’t for ‘Brainstorm.’” – John Lydon. Nuff said. Dit is de live-versie van Space Ritual. De beste incarnatie van Hawkwind, met Robert Calvert en Lemmy.

Standing on the runway waiting to take-off
I wanna fly, wanna watch me flake off
I can’t move ‘cause the man has the brake on
You gotta help me, help me to shake off

This body of mine – I’ve gotta get out of this void
Body of mine – ‘cause I don’t wanna be destroyed
Body of mine – and I don’t wanna turn android
Body of mine – you gotta help me avoid that

Brainstorm – here I go
Brainstorm – flying low
Brainstorm – I’m gonna miss it
Brainstorm – you bet I’d kiss it

Can’t get no peace ‘til I get into motion
Sign my release from this planet’s erosion
Paranoia police have sussed out my potion
You gotta help me or there’ll be an explosion

In this body of mine – I’ve gotta get out of this void
Body of mine – ‘cause I don’t wanna be destroyed
Body of mine – and I don’t wanna turn android
Body of mine – you gotta help me avoid that

Brainstorm – here I go
Brainstorm – flying low
Brainstorm – I’m gonna miss it
Brainstorm – you bet I’d kiss it
I’m breaking up
I’m falling apart
I’m floating away

Can’t get no peace ‘til I get into motion
Sign my release from this planet’s erosion
Paranoia police have sussed out my potion
You gotta help me or there’ll be an explosion

In this body of mine – I’ve gotta get out of this void
Body of mine – ‘cause I don’t wanna be destroyed
Body of mine – and I don’t wanna turn android
Body of mine – you gotta help me avoid that

Brainstorm – here I go
Brainstorm – flying low
Brainstorm – I’m gonna miss it
Brainstorm – you bet I’d kiss it

I’m breaking up, man
I’m floating again
I’m floating away
