"Things" as written by and Curtis Mathew Kirkwood....
Shadowed is the game
Rodent by thy claim
Any open door
Leads to instant things

Make me go away
Take to me a place
Do some things to me
Make me go away
Ancient things design
Make me go away

Over is the game
Captured have you been
Twisted was part two
Ageless is the end

Make me go away
Take to me a place
Do some things to me
Make me go away
Ancient things design
Make me go away

Things we must not do
Must not walk through walls
Also, also don't
Do some things we did

Is this thing an oak
What kind of a tree
This here must be swept
Must do instant things
The smell of blue perfume

Present in design
I've a need to talk
Let us speak of things
Nothing do I know
But loudly do I ring

Also, also don't
Do some things we did
Make me go away

    General Commentthings are fluid and the possibilities are endless but you're supposed to take conceptuality seriously and live within certain boundaries.
    some people feel threatened by creativity and the unconventional.
