Morrissey – Fantastic Bird lyrics

So then you've found your place
You say I wanna be the first
Stand up comedian in outer space
But then in a fantastic bird
Fantastic bird

Space is gonna thrill you, space could even kill you
But space will never love you like I do

Reflecting light down to earth
Oh yes and then some humor too
Just enough to make us know we don't miss you
Have you checked suspension in the fantastic bird?
Fantastic bird

Science can engulf you, science then propels you
But science will never love you like I do

What brings you down to earth?
Ah yes, of course, yes, yes, it was a lack of applause
Scrap metal for a fantastic bird
Fantastic bird

Science propels you, science still engulfs you
But science will never love you like I do

'Cause when you land all you do I hear is my voice
Hello, welcome I love you, don't you see?
Don't you see?
