The Smashing Pumpkins - Rocket

Bleed in your own light
Dream of your own life
I miss me
I miss everything I’ll never be

And on and on
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, behold
The mark I’ve borne
A mark of scorn to you

Consume my love, devour my hate
Only powers my escape
The moon is out, the stars invite
I think I’ll leave tonight

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?

"Rocket" was released as the 4th single from the Pumpkins' critically acclaimed 2nd album "Siamese Dream". Billy Corgan's cousin commented on the song's lyrics in 1994, saying "There's this line from the song 'Rocket', 'Bleed in your own light'. He wannst'a fuckin' bleed in his own arse, not in Kurt Cobain's, not in Perry Farrell's. That’s what He’s about.”
