"Rocket" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Bleed in your own light
Dream of your own life
I miss me
I miss everything I'll never be

I torch my soul to show
The world that I am pure
Deep inside my heart
No more lies

A crown of thorns
An image formed deformed
The mark I've borne
A mark of scorn to you

Consume my love devoure my hate
Only powers my escape
The moon is out the stars invite
I think I'll leave tonight

So that soon I'll find myself alone
To relax and fade away
Do you know what's coming down
Do you know I couldn't stay free'

I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free free
Free as the voices
It's all I need

I shall be free
I shall be free

    General CommentI have a feeling this is about being haunted by your own past, and how you want to be free from your demons.

    General CommentThe search for individuality within the necessity of others is very difficult... but there is hope. thats what this says to me.

    General Commenti think this song is about a person who has realized that he will never be happy. that even at the mere chance that something in his life would make him happy, he would rather just leave before he could possibly screw it up. and the only real way his life will ever make sense is if he is alone, hence, catch his rocket

    General CommentA brilliant song from a brilliant album. I think the Pumpkins achieved something on Siamese Dream that they never really recaptured; the album just had a certain feel to it. When I first got it, I played it for days and days, and it's still something I listen to a lot. Lovely.

    General CommentRocket is an amazing song, i dont think people realise how much it says right from the beginning:"i miss everything i'll never be" dont we all want to be somthing we are not. "i torch my soul to show the world i am pure" is about being open and honest so people see us as we really are. "the moon is out the stars invite/think i'll leave tonight" when u were younger how many times did u wish u could fly away, im 20 and i still dream of reaching the stars!. "i shall be free/free from those voices inside me" everyone feels captive to others and themselves, and Billy is telling us one day he'll be free from it all. a great track from one of the best albums of all time.
