"THE FAMOUS ROCKET CAGE"
Did you ever step inside the Famous Rocket Cage
When the Magic Carnival traveled through?
I was only nine years old but tall for my age
Looking to cheat gravity and shooting for the moon
And as he strapped me in the Carnie winked at me
He said hold on son this will all be over soon
Blasting off and spinning 'round, crashing hard back to the ground
Couldn't tell if I was up or down 'till I opened my eyes
Banging around like a rock in a can I had more fun than I could stand
I guess it ain't where you're going man, it's all about the ride
Did you ever cast your thumb out on the interstate
Like some lonely fisherman out on the sea?
Didn't know where I was going so I left it all to fate
Not a dime in my pocket I was free as I could be
And as I buckled in, the driver winked at me
she said son you'd better keep me company
Did you ever step on board a mysterious train
As it rumbled through the landscape of your mind
Last night I had a dream I was standing in the rain
With a ticket in my pocket for the Southern Central Line
And as he took my bag, the porter winked at me
He said son I ain't seen you for some time
