Treasure Island

Rocket Ship

Why is it hot in here?
Why do i get cold everytime i hear this?
Why does it hurt so much, so much
Why can't i take it all upon my chest?

I used to speak, you used to listen
But then things went awfully wrong
I used to say i will fix your problems
As long as you won't leave me alone

All of these wishes and promises and hopes
All of them were wasted not so long ago
I waited and waited but really, what for?
I really don't want to wait anymore

And here it goes, that dreadful sound
Now is the time, goodbye ground
I feel like my head's about to explode
And shatter all over the place, you know

From a rocket ship, a rocket ship
Watching over you from a distance
Circling around your wicked world
Trying to be part of it all

Floating upon a spectrum of light
The planets you've kept close by
The friction of our endless paths
Starting to fade into black

Breathing through a mysterious hole
Im helplessly whom you've controlled
Death has come to rape this heart
Will it be satisfied?

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
