fill your eyes with dreams of splendor
try to jump and never let your
feet touch the ground
it seems the ones who
live in dark and dreary weather
are the ones who stay rooted
they always say how beautiful
it is to fly
ha, if humans were birds maybe
but we can't
stuffy planes don’t count
and sky-diving is just falling
but in a rocketship you can go
far beyond where birds can.
there are no step-by-step instructions
since your rocketship is all your own
so I can’t tell you how to build it
but make it shiny and make it light
polish it before you fly and
make everyone who dragged you down regret it
‘cause you are flying and they are not.
they will see.
they will see
you shining up among the stars so distant
make your engine strong and
gallons of your bitterness
to fuel the fire to make it fly
and distant stars will light your way
far far away from even the sunrise
and when you have shined up the metal
and hammered out out the bumps
and vacuumed the floor
will you take me with you?
