The Claypool Lennon Delirium – Blood And Rockets

I like this song, and love the lyrics, and think you should give it a listen. It’s the story of Jack Parsons as told by Sean Lennon, and Les Claypool. A psych stomper. Hell yeah! I hope Elon Musk is considering this for SpaceX soundtrack.

–Steve Fly

Blood And Rockets (Movement I, Saga of Jack Parsons – Movement II, Too The Moon)

 

[Intro spoken under music]
Fifteen seconds guidance is internal, twelve, eleven, ten, nine
Ignition sequence start. six,five,four,three,two,one,zero

Because he started with experiments in the backyard, Jack Parsons
As a little boy he already went a bit too far
But the trouble really started when he found another young arsonist
Because together they were ready to reach the stars
(Reach the stars)
So the two began to play around with abscess process
Jack is calling from a local powder company
(Company)
Then the day began to really … Rocket scientist
Thought that both would do what no one else had achieved

How high
(How high)
Does your rocket fly?
(Does your Rocket fly)
Better be careful boys
You just might
(You just might)
Set the world on fire
(On fire)
Better be careful boys set the world on fire

So Jack became a loyal follower of Mr, Aleister Crowley
He took an oath to be a Magister Templi
His pretty house in Pasadena was notorious for the orgies
Every night Abyssinian mysteries
(Mysteries)
Then his company became the famous JP Laboratories
His reputation made it difficult to proceed
(Difficult to proceed)
And at their home there was a chemical magical ceremony
They found his body in an pile of blood and debris

How high
(How high)
Does your rocket fly?
(Does your Rocket fly)
Better be careful boys
You just might
(You just might)
Set the world on fire
(On fire)
Better be careful boys set the world on fire

Do what thy will
Love is the law
Fly me to the moon
