Saturn

Lyrics

Packing my bags -- going away
To a place where the air is clean
On Saturn
There's no sense to sit and watch people die
We don't fight our wars the way you do
We put back all the things we use
On Saturn
There's no sense to keep on doing such crimes

There's no principles in what you say
No direction in the things you do
For your world is soon to come to a close
Through the ages all great men have taught
Truth and happiness just can't be bought - or sold
Tell me why are you people so cold

I'm....
Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
On Saturn
People live to be two hundred and five
Going back to Saturn where the people smile
Don't need cars cause we've learned to fly
On Saturn
Just to live to us is our natural high

We have come here many times before
To find your strategy to peace is war
Killing helpless men, women and children
That don't even know what they're dying for
We can't trust you when you take a stand
With a gun and bible in your hand
And the cold expression on your face
Saying give us what we want or we'll destroy

I'm....
Going back to Saturn where the rings all glow
Rainbow, moonbeams and orange snow
On Saturn
People live to be two hundred and five
Going back to Saturn where the people smile
Don't need cars cause we've learned to fly
On Saturn
Just to live to us is our natural high

Classic Albums: Songs In The Key Of Life
In one of the most creative periods of the soul, Stevie Wonder released Songs in the key of life. Despite the tight control exercised Barry Gordy over the Motown artists, was one of the few who, along with Marvin Gaye, managed to escape capture in their records and what his mind could create. In this double album, Stevie had collaborations with many artists, including musicians and vocalists such as large, Michael Sembello, Herbie Hancock, Nathan Watts, Minnie Riperton, Deniece Williams, George Benson ... and we discovered compositions of heavenly delicacy, instrumentation with a higher evolutionary level and inspiration only possible for a divine touch.

The album debuted at No.1 in the USA charts and stayed there for 14 consecutive weeks. He was nominated for seven Grammy Awards, winning four of them, highlighting the best production, disco and R&B singer. The album is part of the U.S. Library of Congress which preserves the audio events that are culturally, historically or aesthetically important, Diamond disc, and above all is an album where both black and white, lovers of pop, soul, jazz, rock or any genre will find the oasis in the desert thirsty, paradise in hell hotter and oxygen to survive in the deepest ocean.

His importance to the significance and influence that has made music that has achieved classic status. Stevie is aware of what led to this work in his life and in the world of music, and pay tribute in a tour live 2014 performing adaptations for more than 10 cities across North America, beginning Nov. 6 in New York (Madison Square Garden), and having invited as India.Arie, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and other artists that we'll be adding to this SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE PERFORMANCE.

It is undoubtedly one of the best albums ever made, a nectar available to our ears as such must necessarily be savored.
