  • Rocket died dead on Monday
    By Tuesday he was in the ground
    Rocket died dead on Monday
    His guitar was all they found
    (it made no sound?)

    I'm walking away from my suicide
    My weary world washed away once I walked outside
    That morning stroll in October
    when the light left me sober
    Jesus Mary Jehovah
    I almost crossed over
    Won't you do me a favor
    & send me a savior of a different flavor?
    & remind him to remind me
    how sweet the light

    Rocket died dead on Monday
    By Tuesday he was in the ground
    Rocket died dead on Monday
    His six-string was all they found
    Folks say he caused no trouble
    He enjoyed his evenings about the town
    but Rocket 'tended church on Sunday
    then one day we wasn't around
    (he couldn't be found?)

    I wanna scale your mountains, baby
    then ski down your tits
    How sweet the light! Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
