From the album The Meaning of 8- 2007
You're invited to the party down by the rocket crash. No one knows what happened there ,cause the thing went down so fast. And they've gathered up the pieces , still burning with blue radiance. Some say it's just a missile . Others say it must be aliens.
And the only eye-witness Is a Russian widow, and she says "It's clear that he has come again .Sell your SUVs for Jesus"
But the merchants were the first to come , with popcorn stands and freakshows . Selling everything from religious relics to plastic UFOs. And the news teams come with cameras cameras cameras thick as flies. A Pulitzer Prize to the first of you who talks to the alien Christ.
And the days they came and went With no sign of the mystical . So they all went back to the daily drone Of the practical and predictable. And Farmer Johnson built his rambler house upon that rocket hole. As if to prove man's domain o ver everything unknown . And he fell in love with the neighbor girl and had a baby shortly after . That kid never made a single sound except the sound of laughter. And the words first came at 8 years old when she spoke about the crash . And she said and she said and she said, "Someone as God came And ran its fingers through my hair"
