"Rocketship" as written by Ryan Miller, Adam S. Gardner and Brian A. Rosenworcel....
They'll find it on the stairs
Politely placed it there
Been so unkind without a hint
A warning sign for them

Read my apology
Their hope of disbelief
But no denial changes things
No remedy ahead

I am not to be martyred
I am not to be worshipped
Did it not to be strong, strong, strong
I implicate no others in this crime

I'm off on a rocket ship
Prepared for something new
I'm off on a rocket ship
Ecstatic with the view

I am scared of the things upcoming
And I want for the things I don't have
Cannot stand to be one of many
I'm not what they are

Will gather in my name
The morning will begin
It's all or nothing over there
It's teasing me again

I am not to be martyred
I am not to be worshipped
Did it not to be strong, strong, strong
I implicate no others in this crime

I'm off on a rocket ship
Prepared for something new
I'm off on a rocket ship
Ecstatic with the view

I am scared of the things upcoming
And I want for the things I don't have
Cannot stand to be one of many
I'm not what they are

I am scared of the things upcoming
And I want for the things I don't have
Cannot stand to be one of many
I'm not what they are

    General CommentI heard this song and adopted it as my 'theme song' a while ago, when I was going through a rough time and was considering suicide. ((That's something that few of my friends know, but for some reason, I'm not afraid to post it here...)) It spoke to me (as most Guster songs do), telling everyone my outlook on life: "I'm going to go quietly, by myself. You've been less that appreciative of me, so maybe you'll notice me once I'm gone, maybe you'll apologize, but you can't deny it. I'm too scared of the future to live in it, and I don't want to become one of THEM. Don't think I was an amazing person - I wasn't - I didn't do it to test myself, and nobody else had any part in it - it was MY decision."

    0.o;;, goodness, that ended up being just a -little- longer than I'd planned...
