    "Six-String Rocketeer" Lyrics

    Daily Planet

    Words and Music by Jesse Butterworth

    Caught in the crossfire while the battle raged down the hall
    There were no bad guys, just a couple consenting adults
    I just had to get away, but I had no car to drive
    So my body stayed inside my room
    As I slipped into my mind

    I'm going out where no one can find me
    Beyond this thickened air, where my spirit is free
    I'm blasting off with a strum of my six string

    Six String Rocketeer
    Well, my getaway car is this beat up guitar
    And I'm off, I'm off to that place
    Where I find my escape

    Life as it happens is rarely the way that you planned
    Roll with the punches or you'll end up a mad, little man
    A broken home was not the place they intended this to end
    But the wounds were deep inside my soul
    Let the healing begin


    I step on board as commander in chief
    With Sgt. Pepper in military motif
    We walk this ship and I nod with a grin
    At my friends Gordon Sumner and Mudslide Slim
    "Take me to the pilot," I demand
    And they lead me to in the Rocket Man
    "Who's navigating?" I inquire
    As Julio swoops down by the schoolyard
    There my soul was as light as a feather
    As the Piano Man had us all singing together
