"Spaceships" is a single by The Rentals and the eleventh track from the band's fourth album, Q36. It was released alongside the album's unveiling on November 5, 2019.

Overview

On November 8, 2019, a few days after the single's release, Matt Sharp and The Gentle Assassins joined the Bangarang improv group and their audience at the U.C.B. Theatre in Los Feliz, California to sing "Spaceships" over a cassette tape on a 1980s-era boombox [1].

The limited-run clothing item for "Spaceships" was a t-shirt designed by Ivan Minsloff.

Lyrics

We are mad schizophrenic drifters
We hitchhiked across the milky way
We’ve traveled through multiple dimensions
Looking for a better place to play

D.I.D., damaged and bipolar
Breaking through the Sun’s magnetic field
We are on a supernatural voyage
Searching for a place where we can heal

(Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take away our heartache (Uh ho!)
Spaceships gonna take away our pain (Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take us far from sorrow (Oh, yeah!)
Spaceships gonna take us far away

We are not simple men of science
We are not your parent’s astronauts
We are not role models for your children
We remember less than we forgot

(Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take away our heartache (Uh ho!)
Spaceships gonna take away our pain (Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take us far from sorrow (Oh, yeah!)
Spaceships gonna take us far away

(Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take away our heartache (Uh ho!)
Spaceships gonna take away our pain (Ooh hoo!)
Spaceships gonna take us far from sorrow (Oh, yeah!)
Spaceships gonna take us far away

We are schizophrenic drifters, lost in multiple dimensions
A supernatural voyage, searching for a place to call home

(Gonna take us far from sorrow, gonna take us far away)

We are schizophrenic drifters, lost in multiple dimensions
A supernatural voyage, searching for a place to call home

Spaceships gonna take us far away
Spaceships gonna take us far away
We’ll live to dance another day
Spaceships gonna take us far away
