Esteemed members of society
Us little boys and girls
We should really learn to not be so ashamed
Of our store brand sleeping aids
Half-jokingly explained away
"Better safe than sorry, just in case"

And from the ashes of divorces
Names of friends both cursed and praised
And if the former more than latter
Let us wait another day
And on the backs of westward horses
Not as ancient as we'd make
Our blood but not quite family implores
"Take us away"

These syllables I speak sneak
Past anxiety and chewed-up cheeks
And climb and reach a peak past which
I can't help but repeat:

"The things you rank as sacrosanct
Are often just wet paper bags
Sustaining through the facts
By subsisting on the snags"

But take the sweat stains on our shirts
As proof at least our bodies work
And see the seams that line our jeans
But don't get caught up in their worth
And on the backs of westward horses
Not as ancient as we'd make
Our blood but not quite family implores
"Take us away"
