Long ago, in an Indian summer, I had been woken up by strange sounds from a old antennae that was broken out in grandpa's barn

It wasn't clear, but I could faintly hear something was not from Earth.
Through the hum, someone told me to run across the universe
and meet them out there.

When I was alone, I'd work in secret using tin cans and fireworks.
When I was done, I had a homemade rocket and I sure was ready
to leave the Earth.

Where has he gone? Where has he gone? (they will say)

The night came without any rain. I knew it was time to dash.
Sparks light and woke up the night with a booming flash...

...but nobody cared.

I brought food and my favorite albums, but i think there are some things I will miss. But dodging rocks around the rings of Saturn will leave me little time to reminisce.

This soul, for the first time it glows in the dark I traverse.
And I drift slow with a comet in tow across the universe to where nobody knows.

Where has he gone? Where has he gone? (they will say)
