ROCKET SONG

YOU KNOW I’VE SINNED, BY BETRAYING BLOOD
SO INNOCENT, WITH JUST ONE SHOT
I GAVE IT ALL, ALL THAT I HAD
WAS NOT ENOUGH, THAT’S WHAT THEY SAID

TONIGHT
I’LL SLIP
MY SKIN
IT’S ITCHING
AND TWITCHING
MY SKIN
SLIP MY SKIN

THERE AIN’T NO CURE, NO REMEDY
DELIVERANCE FROM THE DEAD SEA
SO AFTER ALL, WHAT DO WE KNOW
ABOUT THEM DAYS AND WHERE WE GO

TONIGHT
I’LL SLIP
MY SKIN
IT’S ITCHING
AND TWITCHING
MY SKIN
SLIP MY SKIN

ARMIES OF ANTS, UNDER MY SKIN
MUST RIP IT OFF FOR ANYTHING

JESUS PLEASE WE NEED TO KILL
send US AN ALIBI
SOMEONE WORTH
DYING IN YOUR EYES

MOSES COME DOWN FROM YOUR HILL
WE’RE GONNA FOLLOW YOU
BLIND
AND BEHIND YOUR TRUTH

OH, OPIUM
SWEET OPIUM
OH, OPIUM

BUDDAH ME FRIEND, LET’S START A WAR
It’s TOO PEACEFUL FOR AGES NOW
LET’S DRINK BLOOD
KILL AND DESTROY SOMEHOW

YOU KNOW WHO BLESS US WITH GUNS
DAGGERS AND HAND GRANATES
TO ESTABLISH
A GOLDEN STATE

OH, OPIUM
SWEET OPIUM
OH, OPIUM

OH LORD CALL ME HOME
I’VE BEEN HERE FOR FAR TOO LONG
SOON I’LL BE GONE
SAW IT COMING FOR QUITE A WHILE
THOUGHT I’D BETTER LEAVE IN STYLE
AND SAY GOOD BYE, MR. BLUE SKY

IF THERE’S ONE THING, I’LL EVER WILL RECALL
IT’S ALL THAT LIFE THAT YOU SHARED WITH US ALL

I AM HOMEBOUND
I AM HOMEBOUND

OH LORD, HOW’S YOUR PARADISE
IS IT TRUE OR IS IT JUST A LIE?
SOMETHING MYSTIFIED
BY THE SEA, I FELT ALREADY THERE
BUT IT NEVER TOOK ME ANYWHERE
AND NOW I’M HERE

IF THERE’S ONE THING, I’LL ALWAYS WILL RECALL
IT’S ALL THAT LIFE THAT YOU SHARED WITH US ALL

I AM HOMEBOUND
I AM HOMEBOUND
I AM HOMEBOUND
I AM HOMEBOUND

COUNTDOWN, SOON GONNA PASS THE MOON
ROCKET SONG, YOU WERE THE FAVOURITE TUNE
THAT WE SANG THROUGH ALL THESE YEARS IN SPACE
ROCKET SONG, WE FELL FROM YOUR DISGRACE
ROCKET SONG
ROCKET SONG

A HUMAN SETTLEMENT ON A VIRGIN PLANET
WAS OUR HOLY GRAIL
WE WERE THE SPEARHEAD OF AN ENTIRE GENERATION
AND WE MUST NOT FAIL
AS WE DID, BACK HOME, WHEN WE SOLD
OUR WORLD, FOR A SONG

COUNTDOWN, SOON GONNA PASS THE MOON
ROCKET SONG, YOU WERE THE FAVOURITE TUNE
THAT WE SANG THROUGH ALL THESE YEARS IN SPACE
ROCKET SONG, WE FELL FROM YOUR DISGRACE
ROCKET SONG
ROCKET SONG

WHEN WE PASSED PLUTOS ORBIT
THE CREW FELT BADLY HOMESICK, NAVIGATION FAILED
THE CAPTAIN TURNED THE SHIP AROUND
AND WE WERE FINALLY HOMEBOUND
THOUGH OUR ROUTE LOOKED FRAIL
SO WE SANG, LIKE BACK THEN, WHEN WE BELIEVED
IN ALL, THE WISE MEN

COUNTDOWN, SOON GONNA PASS THE MOON
ROCKET SONG, YOU WERE THE FAVOURITE TUNE
THAT WE SANG THROUGH ALL THESE YEARS IN SPACE
ROCKET SONG, WE FELL FROM YOUR DISGRACE
COUNTDOWN, JUST WENT PASS THE SUN
ROCKET SONG, YOU WERE THE ONLY ONE
BLANK SCREENS, NO SIGNS OF HUMAN LIFE
SILENCE FROM OUR SATELLITES
ROCKET SONG
ROCKET SONG
ROCKET SONG
ROCKET SONG

ALL YOU ROCKET MEN OUT THERE
WITHOUT YOU
THIS PLANET WOULD BE A YESTERDAYS PLACE
SO, HAIL TO INFINITY
BE SAFE AND FAREWELL

FOR YEARS NOW, I’M A LITTLE DANCING BEAR
GOLDEN JINGLES ROUND MY KNACK
PRETTY DIAMONDS IN MY EAR
THE CHILDREN, LOOK AT ME AS IF THEY CARED
BUT SMILE BEHIND MY BACK
PRETENDING TO BE SCARED

SHE COULD DROWN ME IN THE MARIANA TRENCH
PACIFICS WATERS COVERING ME
BEFORE I EVEN UNDERSTAND
SHE COULD NAIL ME TO THE CROSS UP ON THE HILL
AND FATHER I FORGAVE HER
THOUGH YOU KNOW I NEVER WILL

YOU MAY CALL ME EMPTY HEADED
A FOOL IF YOU PREFER
BUT BEFORE YOU POINT YOUR
UNINSPIRED, STICKY, WICKED, TRIGGER FINGER
YOU SHOULD KNOW
EVEN THE DEVIL’S OBSESSED BY HER

I’ M CLEAN NOW, DANCING THROUGH THE RING
AND I GOT NO EXPECTATIONS
WHAT ANOTHER DAY MIGHT BRING
I’M SAFE NOW, ALL DECIDED FOR ME
SO I JINGLE WITH MY JINGLES
NEVER FELT SO FREE

YOU MAY CALL ME EMPTY HEADED
A FOOL IF YOU PREFER
BUT BEFORE YOU POINT YOUR
UNINSPIRED, STICKY, WICKED, TRIGGER FINGER
YOU SHOULD KNOW
EVEN THE DEVIL’S OBSESSED BY HER

I AM YOUR GODFATHER, OWE YOU A DREAM
A PROMISE TO YOUR MOTHER, SHE ASKED FROM ME
TEMPTING FATE AS WE WERE WAITING FOR SUMMER
BUT IT WAS TOO LATE
RAIN HAD ALREADY DROWNED OUR LAUGHTER
STILL WE CRY, EVERY YEAR
ON THE DAY, SHE DISAPPEARED
WHERE WAS SHE GOING?

LET’S RAISE OUR GLASSES TO LOVE
SING A SONG FOR ALL OF US
FORGIVE EVERYTHING THAT WENT WRONG
IN THE END IT DON’T MATTER AT ALL


YOU ARE MY MOONCHILD, YOU WERE BORN FREE
THE STARS ARE YOUR GUIDANCE AND ALWAYS WILL BE
JUST BE THERE
REMEMBER WAITING FOR SUMMER?
NO ONE CARED
RAIN HAD ALREADY DROWNED OUR LAUGHTER
STILL WE CRY, EVERY YEAR, ON THE DAY
SHE DISAPPEARED
WHERE WAS SHE GOING?

LET’S RAISE OUR GLASSES TO LOVE
SING A SONG FOR ALL OF US
FORGIVE EVERYTHING THAT WENT WRONG
IN THE END IT DON’T MATTER AT ALL

THIS BOY AND HIS GUITAR
WE KNEW HE WOULD MAKE IT FAR
EVERY TONE A RENEGADE
EVERY RIFF A STATEMENT MADE
PLAYED IT HIGH CLASS, BEYOND PROOF
KICKED THE AUDIENCE THROUGH THE ROOF
TOOK EM ALL ABOVE THE STARS
WITH JUST ONE TOUCH OF HIS GUITAR
AND HE PLAYED ON …

GUITAR KING

OUTSIDE THE STAGE WITHOUT A CLUE
NEVER KNOWING WHAT TO DO
WITHOUT HIS GUITAR BUT A CREEP
A CRYING MAN TRYING TO FIND SLEEP
BUT AS THE LIGHTS HOORAYED THE SCENE
HE WOULD INVITE YOU TO HIS DREAM
MAKE YOU FORGET, WHAT YOU HAD KNOWN
BEFORE THE END OF HIS FIRST SONG
AND HE PLAYED ON ….

GUITAR KING

AND EVERY TOWN HAS GOT ITS GUITAR KING
PLAYING TO LOSE AND PLAYING TO WIN
AND EVERY GIRL HAS GOT HER GUITAR KING
TO MAKE HER FEEL FREE; TO MAKE HER SING
FORGIVIN IN THE END

IF I HAD KNOWN
WHAT I KNOW NOW
WHERE THIS ROAD WAS HEADING TO
I’D MADE IT SOMEHOW
BUT I WAS YOUNG
ALMOST A KID
THOUGH EVERYTHING SEEMED SO REAL
HAD NO CLUE WHAT I DID

ME FRIEND, I HOPE THIS LIFE’S FORGIVIN IN THE END

WHEN I WENT AWAY
TO STUPID TO SEE
FELL FOR A SMART LIE
TOLD SO OPENLY
DEAF DUMB AND BLIND
THE ULTIMATE FOOL
CAN’T BLAME YOU LAUGHING AT ME
SEND ME BACK TO THE ZOO

ME FRIEND, I HOPE THIS LIFE’S FORGIVIN IN THE END

THE LAST BONES ARE THINNER THAN THEY USED TO BE
STILL THEY’RE EVERYTHING WE’VE GOT
STILL THEY’RE EVERYTHING WE’VE GOT

OUR NEW HOME SEEMS MORE LIKE A DEAD END TO ME
I’D LIKE TO TURN BUT I CANNOT
I’D LIKE TO TURN BUT I CANNOT

BUT DOGS DON’T DIE
DOGS DON’T DIE
UUUUUUUUUUUUUH
UUUUUUUUUUUUUH

THE LAST SIGN WAS SHOWING WRONG DIRECTIONS
HOW COULD WE EVER UNDERSTAND?
HOW COULD WE EVER UNDERSTAND?

BUT OUR LAST VOTE DECIDED THE ELECTIONS
WE ENDED UP AS PRESIDENTS
ENDED UP AS PRESIDENTS

DOGS DON’T DIE
DOGS DON’T DIE
DOGS DON’T DIE
DOGS DON’T DIE
UUUUUUUUUUUUUH
UUUUUUUUUUUUUH

YOU’RE STILL RECALLING ALL THE WORDS
THEY PROCLAIMED ON THE RUINS OF THE EMPIRE
WELL SPOKEN AND ELABORATE
BOUND IN LEATHER AND DIRT

THE PAROLES OF THE SONGS YOU MUST SING NOW
ARE HARDLY CROSSING YOUR LIPS
SO YOU’RE HUMMING THEIR HYMNS
PRETENDING YOU’RE SHOUTING OUT LOUD

THE TRUTH REMAINS LIED ………

THE BANNERS YOU’RE SWINGING THESE DAYS
WEAR COLOURS THAT YOU ONCE DESPISED
COAT OF ARMS AND DEVICES
YOU’RE BOUND TO BETRAY

THE YOUNG KING YOU’RE SWORN TO NOW
PRAISES GODS YOU NEVER HEARD OF
COMES THE TIME YOU’LL DENY HIM YOUR FEALTY
AND RETURN YOUR VOW

THE TRUTH REMAINS LIED ………

AND AFTER ALL THE HUNGER
THE KING STEPPED DOWN FROM HIS THRONE
AND BOWED TO THE PEOPLE
TO BE KILLED

THIS TOWN AIN’T BIG ENOUGH, FOR ALL OF US
SO I AM GONNA LEAVE
THIS LOVE’S NOT BIG ENOUGH FOR YOU AND ME
AND OUR BELIEFS
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO SAY, LEAVE IT BEHIND
AND DIVE INTO THE BLUE
FOR EVERYTHING THAT I WOULD TAKE
WOULD JUST REMIND ME OF YOU

THE PEOPLE KILLED JESUS AS YOU ARE KILLING ME
THE PEOPLE KILLED JESUS AS YOU ARE KILLING ME
THE PEOPLE KILLED JESUS ONE DAY THEY’LL COME
FOR YOU
THE PEOPLE KILLED JESUS, NOT PILATE, THAT’S THE
TRUTH

WILL WASH MY HANDS IN INNOCENCE
PRETENDING I WILL BE ALL RIGHT
WHY DO I COUNT A MILLION STARS
THROUGH ALL THESE STICKY SUMMER NIGHTS?
WILL FIND A PLACE DOWN BY THE SEA
AND SPEND THE DAYS THERE ON MY OWN
HOPE THAT THE WATERS COOL MY SOUL
A SHIP WILL COME TO TAKE ME HOME

THE PEOPLE KILLED JESUS AS YOU ARE KILLING ME
THE PEOPLE KILLED JESUS AS YOU ARE KILLING ME
THE PEOPLE KILLED JESUS ONE DAY THEY’LL COME
FOR YOU
THE PEOPLE KILLED JESUS, NOT PILATE, THAT’S THE
TRUTH

GENERAL KAHNE, OUT IN THE FIELDS TO KILL!

WAR’S BEEN DECLARED
THE COUNTRY STANDS STRONG
THE FORCES PREPARED
TO OUR LORD IT BELONGS

THE FIGHTING’S BEGUN
WE’RE GONNA WIN
WE’RE OILING OUR GUNS
WITH THE ENEMYS SKIN

SKY IS FULL OF SO HAPPY MELODIES
THAT DO NOT BLEED LIKE THE SOLDIERS SYMPHONY
GETTING SO HIGH IN THE POPPY FIELDS
RAISING OUR GLAS TO THE SOLDIERS SYMPHONY

I HAD YOUR WIFE
YOUR DAUGHTER TOO
MIGHT STILL TAKE YOUR LIFE
BEFORE I have A FEW

SKY IS FULL OF SO HAPPY MELODIES
THAT DO NOT BLEED LIKE THE SOLDIERS SYMPHONY
GETTING SO HIGH IN THE POPPY FIELDS
RAISING OUR GLAS TO THE SOLDIERS SYMPHONY

NOTHING YOU CAN’T FACE WITH A SONG ON YOUR MIND
A LITTLE MELODY TO MAKE THE DAY SHINE
TO BRING OUT ONLY THE BEST
CAUSE THAT’S THE LEAST THAT YOU DESERVE

JUST GO ANYWHERE WITH A TUNE IN YOUR HEAD
AN EASY RHYME TO LIGHTEN UP WHAT THEY SAID
THE WINGBEAT OF A BUTTERFLY CAN CHANGE IT ALL
SO DON’T YOU CRY

SING WITH ME, SING WITH ME
SING WITH ME, SING WITH ME NOW

AND IF YOUR BOSS HAS STUPID PLANS
ANOTHER MONDAY SEEMS TO RUN OUT OF HAND
JUST GO OUTSIDE AND SING A SONG
AND YOU WILL SEE, NOTHING IS WRONG

SING WITH ME, SING WITH ME
SING WITH ME, SING WITH ME NOW

ALL U SINGERS, ALL U DANCERS
LET YOURSELF GO TO THE MUSIC
AND SPREAD YOUR LOVE
AND SPREAD YOUR PEACE
TO THIS WONDERFUL WORLD

HEY ROCK’N’ROLL, WE’RE THE CHILDREN OF THE REVOLUTION, THE SPIDERS FROM MARS, THE MARMELADE SKIES, THE BOHEMIAN SUICIDES

RED THE NEON BIBLE, KISSED WEIRDOS AND CREEPS, DIDN’T LOOK BACK IN ANGER, STILL FREDDY’S OUR QUEEN
AND NOW THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN, WALKING THIS WAY, ROCK’N’ROLL, ROCK’N’ROLL, IS HERE TO STAY

THERE’S STILL LIGHT IN YOUR WINDOW
BURNING A WHOLE INTO MY SOUL
WONDERING WHOM YOU’RE GONNA TOAST TO
AND IT’S HARD NOT TO FALL

THAT’S THE WAY OF THE WORLD
NO ONE KNOWS WHAT’S GONNA BE
JUST ANOTHER LOVE IN VAIN
SO HAVE ONE MORE DRINK ON ME
THAT’S THE WAY OF THE WORLD
NO ONE KNOWS WHERE SHE CAME FROM
JUST ANOTHER LOVE IN VAIN
SO LET’S SING ANOTHER SONG

HEARD THEY SAW YOU WITH A STRANGER
DOWN IN THE BAR WE USED TO MEET
TELL HIM TO WATCH OUT HE’S IN DANGER
FOR KEEPING CONTROL I CAN’T GUARANTEE

THAT’S THE WAY OF THE WORLD
NO ONE KNOWS WHAT’S GONNA BE
JUST ANOTHER LOVE IN VAIN
SO HAVE ONE MORE DRINK ON ME
THAT’S THE WAY OF THE WORLD
NO ONE KNOWS WHERE SHE CAME FROM
JUST ANOTHER LOVE IN VAIN
SO LET’S SING ANOTHER SONG
