a.) It hasn't poured this much as long as I remember, but I've been forgetting a lot. Sometimes you get used to scraping bottom. There
are wrecking balls moving in these rooms forgotten. Tearing it all down around me. Taking little stabs at growing. Cutting my arms to
spears making dreams and not knowing, and never going to those places I make myself see. I just pull up the covers, and try to get
sleep while the grass grows on the streets. I am all alone, and you are all alone. I am all alone, you are all alone. I am all alone, and
you are all alone, but we are all alone together. Because it's ok to be scared sometimes, and brave sometimes, and fail some times
sometimes, and it's not possible to lose every time. We have the time. We have the time. We have the time. What we build could be
anything!

b.) There are wrecking balls inside our hearts inside our tongues and they are moving. They're swinging in our thoughts and fists, and
they're smashing us together, but that's how we'll make it through. We'll use our hands and legs and guts and chains and turn the
ground with shovels and dig up old roots. Unforgiven mistakes our parents made that maybe weʼll make too. Build a fire and hammer
out everything that we've obeyed, and make a plow to dig us through. Covered in gasoline burning with purpose. I am not alone, and
you are not alone. I am not alone, and you are not alone, and we are not alone together. Because it's ok to be scared sometimes, and
brave sometimes, and fail some times sometimes. It's not possible to lose every time. We have the time. What we build could be anything!
We can go places we've never even thought of.

c.) There will never be exactly perfect seas to set sail on. So sister the water is waiting, and brother we all might drown. But if we dive
on out together, and not just wonder if we'll ever grow. We'll be free forever, and stop all this wandering around. Free inside our hearts
and in jars in the basements of our minds, and give our lives away to keep each other alive. But we never will be finished, and I'm ok,
are you ok? Ok, we'll swing our hearts around in our own ways. What I build could be anything! What you build could be anything!
What we build could be anything, it could be anything anything! What I build could be anything! What you build could be anything!
What we build together could be anything! We just have to build it.
