In the event
That this fantastic voyage
Should turn to erosion
And we never get old

Fantastic Voyage

David Bowie


[Verse 1]
In the event
That this fantastic voyage
Should turn to erosion
And we never get old

[Bridge 1]
Remember it's true, dignity is valuable
But our lives are valuable too

[Chorus]
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

[Post-Chorus 1]
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
Because we'll never say anything nice again
Will we?

[Verse 2]
And the wrong words
Make you listen
In this criminal world

[Bridge 2]
Remember it's true, loyalty is valuable
But our lives are valuable too

[Chorus]
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

[Post-Chorus 2]
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
Cause I'll never say anything nice again
How can I?

"Fantastic Voyage" Track Info



The lead track to the last “Berlin Trilogy” album fittingly focuses on the problems in Berlin and the world in general, specifically the threat ofnuclear war.

The title Fantastic Voyage could refer to a few things. Possibly Bowie's own voyage from the U.K. to the U.S. to Los Angeles and now Berlin and experiencing the problems firsthand. It may also reference international politics (voyage meaning the travel troops to other countries for possible war). He might also just be generally referring to the voyage through time. Despite conflicts in the past we are still here and not destroyed.

While the song is such a serious subject matter, the instrumentation is relatively light.
