Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Build A Rocket Boys!

This song was created for Game of Bands round 242 : "Last Night on Earth"

Lyrics:

Jeff and Cyrus never fit in
Their dreams too big for their heads
Always off in their own world
Thinking about the vastness above their heads
So every day after school
They'd collect scrap junk and wool
And on Jeff's mothers lawn
A silver rocket they built so tall

Build a rocket boys
Build a rocket boys
Leave it all behind
In the stars adventures you'll find
Build a rocket boys
Build a rocket boys
Untether dreams from the ground
Ascend before the crowd
Build a rocket boys
Build a rocket boys
Get out of this crushing town
Until its just a dot so far down
Build a rocket boys
Build a rocket boys

It was done so very quick
Only took a couple weeks
Nineteen eighties oil prices
They fueled it so very cheap
Then on a Tuesday night
Climbed aboard, flicked on the cabin light
Started the launch sequence
And with bang up into the sky

And back in the ussr
An alarm began to sound
Missle detected collision imminent
A gasp of fear came from the crowd

They fired thousands back
The USA fired more
A final fireworks display
And life on earth was gone

Build a rocket boys
Build a rocket boys
It's all over now
See the ashes on the ground
Build a rocket boys
Build a rocket boys
Your parents are all dead
And the earth scorched and red
Build a rocket boys
Build a rocket boys
The cancer in your legs
Will soon swallow what's left
Build a rocket boys
Build a rocket boys
Aren't you proud of what you've done?
Did you have some wholesome fun?
Build a rocket boys
Build a rocket boys
An inspiration to us all
Warms our hearts those two boys
[Exit]
