Rocketship

What's gone wrong in our world?
How did things get this way?
Families torn by divorce
Little boys and girls asking why daddy went away
And teenagers wondering why their parents are like this
Life is hard enough without the yelling and the fights
Has the world broken itself too much to be fixed?
Can anyone make this right?

Let's me and you get on a rocket ship
Fly away until this world gets its act together
Let's fly so far away on a rocket ship
We only really need each other
We'll fly far away from this world for a better one
We'll fly far away cause it's much too far to run
To get away from here for a better place
Let's me and you fly away, let's fly away

And what's with all this selfish hate?
How did things get so bad?
I'm sure it used to be great
And no one cried because no one had to feel sad
Now we're hearing stories of murder and broken families
Torn apart and burned to the ground by someone else's greed
Why should children wonder if they'll make it through the night?
Can anyone make this right?

Let's me and you get on a rocket ship
Fly away until this world gets its act together
Let's fly so far away on a rocket ship
We only really need each other
We'll fly far away from this world for a better one
We'll fly far away cause it's much too far to run
To get away from here for a better place
Let's me and you fly away, let's fly away

I'd love to see the day when things got better
But I'm sick of the pain of watching it all fall apart
I'd rather run away, just me and you together
With none of this evil to break our heart
Yeah it's just one heart because you and I are one
We'll fly away on a rocket ship because it's too far to run
To get away from the world that we once knew
I'm ready for departure but I just won't leave without you

Let's me and you get on a rocket ship
Fly away until this world gets its act together
Let's fly so far away on a rocket ship
We only really need each other
We'll fly far away from this world for a better one
We'll fly far away cause it's much too far to run
To get away from here for a better place
Let's me and you fly away, let's fly away
