The mysterious nature of a dinner that follows a scolding
I figured it was magic, my world went hazy
The piano I scratched with the sword of my heroic robot
It got all marked up, it’s not how it was supposed to go
I’m going to grow up, so I can make it known
I’m going to say it the right way, because I want you to know what should I say, I don’t understand anything.
Your wish will come true, you can look forward to that. The treasures that you discover, will still be treasures, as they gather dust.
I’m pretty sure it was red, my tricycle, I could go anywhere on it. The bear the old bearded guy gave me, upon closer look, was actually a dog.
The piano I marked up with the plastic sword of something-or-other. I meant to make a design, I tried to make it (the piano) something I liked.
I’m going to grow up, I want friends
ones who I understand and who understand me. Ones I can be bosom buddies with, ones who won’t go home until the fort is finished.
You’re going to run into things beyond your wildest dreams, but prepare yourself.
The feelings that you take with you, that you can’t find the words for, will be locked within, without ever flourishing, and they will only grow in number.
That scary daddy is actually a kind daddy.
That funny mommy sometimes cries.
That granny sometimes forgets your face.
That the old bearded guy, will never find out it was a dog
One day you’ll know all of this. Much farther down the line. And I know you’ll want to doubt it. I know that because I’m you.
So stop your crying.
Your wish will come true, I know you’re scared but I want you to see the treasures you lose, the ones given to you, are now treasures once more.
Your wish will come true, when you’re an adult you’ll tell yourself the feelings you take with you, that you can’t find words for
you’ll make into a song, without ever being able to make them flourish
The mysterious nature of a dinner that follows a scolding, that mystery is larger than me, maybe you can solve it.
