Rocket Ship is the 1992 demo of a song that didn't get any further than this, because the chorus was cannibalized to make "Spiraling Shape." The verse is a rough idea for a lyric about how far you can travel in outer space and never get anywhere, but the chorus wandered in a more fruitful direction and suggested a better song.
