ROCKET RIDE (JOHN ROCKET #1)

John Rocket:
My pops he got me workin',
I'm trapped beneath the screen,
I boss the robot factory,
It's time to let off steam,

Pass the fuel, toss the vapors,
Let's scrape the skyscrapers,
I want the air on my back,
On some super capers.

Friend 1:
John Rocket,
You're out your socket,
Stop it, you got it,
Everything you ever wanted,

You always flaunt it,
You ain't no slave but damn you bonded,
You wear those chains so godded,
My man why the hell are you so haunted?

John Rocket:
I'm no man, I'm a spirit, you fear it,
Love you never hear it, but try come near it,

Your visions blurry with no taste, what a waste,
Feel me as I gotta pace, the past I always erase,

So lace up those boots, I got a plan to stand,
Or better yet out statue the statutes,
Grab your parachutes, we land!

Friend 2:
God damn! Bro, no!,
Slow it down, let's head to town,
You're awfully shook up,
But I got the hook up,

Ten minutes by teleport,
Ten girls in it for the sport,
And man these girls are all that,
Life is cool, just enjoy cat!

John Rocket:
I ain't no animal I got more than 9 lives,
I watch people dull theirs up all the times,

Like knives, I'm sharper than sticks,
I'm smarter than pricks,
A billion stars to picks,
Feel my science fiction flicks,

Time is in my hands like a watch,
Space is in my feet like a moon walk,
Dock, never,
My ship flies forever, so clever,

However, I endeavor
To escape like you do the weather,
Whatever happens, I'll be better.

Friend 2:
What the hell you mean?
You aint got no ship!,
There ain't gonna be no trip.

John Rocket:
Aw man, don't even trip.

Friend 2:
Explain to me the how,
You know your dad got the pow,
Er, to break you like a comet,
Shower, he calls the shots,
Sittin' in his tower.

John Rocket:
Coward, that's what you call him,
Half the world starvin' but he be ballin',
The hypocrit, I might as well take his ship for a trip,
Fly to another planet and sit,

Be my own boss, benevolent ruler,
Rip the heart out of any tyrant,
Try to find a hero cooler.
You'll be bluer, in the face,
Why you waste?, in a second we're going to chase,
Beat the competition, win the human race.

Friend 1:
John Rocket,
You're out your socket,
Stop it, you got it,
Everything you ever wanted,
You always flaunt it,
You ain't no slave but damn you bonded,
You wear those chains so godded,
My man why the hell are you so haunted?

John Rocket:
Out of one, here comes many,
I see security, let's flip 'em like a penny,
Got the keys, I know the code,
Hurry dump the load, it's time to explode!
