Repeat last two bars with lick.  Use your instinct to know where to stop!


Repeat verse, chorus and guitar solo, more or less the same.


"I've been thinking about all of the ways
That a whizz man spends all of his days
In a rocket cathedral pointing to the sky
Wish I was grounded, and see the last of my days
And not rebounded around the Milky Way
In a rocket cathedral pointing to the stars."

"So I'll go to Lucifer and I may be crucified,
Goodbye Mars
I'll talk to celluloid, I'll drive a shiny car,
Bye bye stars."

I fixed a few mistakes on this one, wrong chord name and a couple of notes.
