Tom Rapp R.I.P. Pearls Before Swine - Rocket Man

My father was a rocket man 
He often went to Jupiter or Mercury, to Venus or to Mars 
My mother and I would watch the sky 
And wonder if a falling star 
Was a ship becoming ashes with a rocket man inside

My mother and I 
Never went out 
Unless the sky was cloudy or the sun was blotted out 
Or to escape the pain 
We only went out when it rained

My father was a rocket man 
He loved the world beyond the world, the sky beyond the sky 
And on my mother's face, as lonely as the world in space 
I could read the silent cry 
That if my father fell into a star 
We must not look upon that star again

My mother and I 
Never went out 
Unless the sky was cloudy or the sun was blotted out 
Or to escape the pain 
We only went out when it rained

Tears are often jewel-like 
My mother's went unnoticed by my father, for his jewels were the stars 
And in my father's eyes I knew he had to find 
In the sanctity of distance something brighter than a star 
One day they told us the sun had flared and taken him inside

My mother and I 
Never went out 
Unless the sky was cloudy or the sun was blotted out 
Or to escape the pain 
We only went out when it rained
