See the footprints in the cave?
I would follow them, if I were brave,
to find out why there's no second set of
footprints in the cave.


In the attic of this house,
on the wall behind a propped up couch
is a door that somehow leads into
the basement of this house.


Oh, the less you hold out,
more and more will fold out.
Live for the afternoon.
But oh, the more you grow up,
less and less will show up.
Guess it's gotta blow up soon.


If you take another look
in the workings of your pop up book,
there's a secret message left there for you.
Take another look.


If you choose a place to dig,
and you make a hole that's deep and big enough,
you will find exactly what you need:
A place to dig.
Yeah!


Okay now.
Okay, what?
Okay yeah.


Oh oh oh oh, the less you hold out,
more and more will fold out.
Live for the afternoon.
But oh, the more you grow up,
less and less will show up.
Guess it's gotta blow up soon.


Ooh, the less you hold out,
more and more will fold out.
Live for the afternoon.
But oh, the more you grow up,
less and less will show up.
Guess it's gotta blow up soon.

    General CommentThis is about childhood juvenility and how much less fun it gets when you grow older.
