A menagerie of green is sleeping silently at ease as if the wind hummed both our mothers' favorite hymnal song.

And though I felt indignant 'bout the cause of the events, it was apparent very early I was not the cause.

Oh fee and fie,
Oh foe and then fum,
There is a giant looming over us
While she wants what she wants
Just summer seeds planted in recklessness

So very, very lightly on the strings of what we are there is a hollow yellow yelling at the stars tonight.

While feuding fading fury sunk in deeply to the bone as if they'd like to figure out what they would like to try.

While you and I and everyone else
We have no clue what we are doing here
But we want what we want
And never thought that we could want too much

And though I speak
These words do not mean
That I have ever really had an understanding

Or I can try
To do what I like
And hope that there is nothing gained from this pretending

So I am born
From now til I'm gone
And when I leave I won't be waiting on forever

All my life
I've done what I liked
Though there are times that I have wanted to be better
(I shall be
All that I can see
Floating in and out of this life)

(But I have found
These words do not resound
But float among our sleeping eyelids)

(When night descends
And lays me in my bed
I'll turn to face the silence smiling)
