We were in a park and I could jump so far
Seems like all I'd ever done
Was smoking pot out in the car and this fear faded in
From the death of kids in my old school

He says, "Ben, we both know you're asleep
I've been running through these fields
It's such a lovely place you dream, is it your imagination?
It's been years since I've been on my feet"

Now it's Rocky's day, send his soul on its way
The sun won't be coming out today
Now it's Rocky's day and this time he went away
The sun won't be coming out today

Now I recall but I don't know who told me
Rocky was a runner, won a medal back in school
Now at Christmas, momma says
"You go up with me to Rocky's room"

And as we watch the sun go down
He thanked me for my dreams he says
"I know you think you are but you're not completely free
The man who's seen the scepter of departure is completely free"

Now it's Rocky's day, send his soul on it's way
The sun won't be coming out today now it's Rocky's day
And this time he went away
The sun won't be coming out today

Then he smiled and he turned and walked away
He said over his shoulder, "I'll be gone when you're awake"

Now it's Rocky's day, send his soul on it's way
The sun won't be coming out today
Now it's Rocky's day and this time he went away
The sun won't be coming out today
