Today I said goodbye to children and childhood
I said goodbye to gray-haired crazies I love
And the "Brad Pitt is watching you" piece of tape on the wall
Today a Freshman boy said something along the lines of "you look like fighting ostriches"
Today I opened my arms to the sky on the calm waters of an empty lake
Balancing on the thin shell of a boat with no name, I stood and accepted fate
Today the roses in my room turned sour
Sweet roses turned sour
