Eugene Mcguinness – God In Space lyrics

In a dream-tinted flicker of light
I threw my guitar into the sea
The world's as quiet as a library
All the planet's creatures are asleep
Eve slowly falls from grace
She reaches out for every cosmis sphere
Earth welcomes her to her blue bosom
She splashes into her fresh tears

And God is standing out there
Somewhere in space
A couple galaxies away
Astronauts report they've seen his face
But he's a far cry from the milky way

And I shall age
And you shall age
I'll fashion rags of beige
Convinced it's all the rage

    "At a moment when no one was watching, I gave up on music as some sort of Trans-formative, Transcendental process. Like our First Transgressor, Mother Eve, I fell out of that innocence under the weight of my youthful mistakes and shortcomings. I reached for any sort of Magic or Beauty I could find, only to receive the mundane reality of our everyday world. And I know that THAT Beauty and Magic is still out there, and there may even be other people experiencing it, but never again where or when I will have access to it. So I leave behind Childhood, as YOU DO, and get old, playing games along with you, to try to pretend we are still relevant, but without either imagination or real inspiration." -- One person's interpretation of the lyrics of the song, "God In Space", by Eugene Mcguinness. Eugene has a very disheartening view of his coming Maturity and the commercial needs of his profession. He sees the moment coming when it isn't fun anymore, isn't cathartic anymore, and his music withdraws into a parody of itself (the "rags of beige"). Note he wouldn't be the first person this would happen to, nor is the first to have written sadly about it. But it is him who faces this possibility at "the moment" of this song, and he seems to resign himself to the probability, as others do physical death.
