David Bowie - Space Oddity (Kalimba Tab)

The lyrics depict the communication between ground control and an astronaut named Major Tom. Major Tom is instructed to take protein pills, wear his helmet, and undergo a countdown for liftoff. As Major Tom travels into space, he achieves recognition and success ("You've made the grade") but eventually loses contact with ground control. He describes his floating experience in space and expresses a sense of detachment. As his spaceship malfunctions, Major Tom sends a final message to his loved ones before losing contact, leaving him drifting alone in space with a sense of resignation. The song conveys a poignant and surreal narrative about the isolation and uncertainty of space travel.
