Rocket House

I BEEN LIVING IN A ROCKET HOUSE
EMPTY BUILDINGS GO FLYING BY
SO TAPPED ABOVE THE ATMOSPHERE
I GOT NO TIME TO SAY GOODBYE
I WAS ONLY OUT A THOUSAND MILES
ALL RELIGIONS FALL AWAY
I BEEN RUNNING FOR A HUNDRED YEARS
BUT I ALWAYS GOT SOME PLACE TO PRAY
FROM COUNTERPANE TO STRATOSPHERE
ALL CONCLUSIONS FADE TO BLACK
IS THERE FREEDOM FROM THE HEMISPHERE
WHERE THERE IS NO GOING BACK

I BEEN LIVING IN A ROCKET HOUSE
EMPTY BUILDINGS GO FLYING BY
SO TAPPED ABOVE THE ATMOSPHERE
IGOT NO TIME TO SAY GOODBYE
