Brick by brick by brick by brick
They made me a baboon
But I grew too thick and I grew too soon
My ego grew fat, they weren't expecting that
It unveiled itself like a triptych and split into three
In an attempt to embrace the very sun
And kiss the vibrant split up sea

Cause, see, I grew up where the jungle meets the concrete
Primate pirates beating on my chest to revive that dead old heartbeat
And their angry stirred up cries filled the fleshy skies and swept me and the common peasantry off our worn out wormscout feet
For the love of bones and meat, for that ancient jungle beat
For peace

I want to live in that origami web of things I've not yet learned
I want to throw my face to the heavens and I want God to let the golden rain hit
Golden Danae Lamai, soaking everything that burned
And the only thing I ever want to know is that I'll never know shit

arr but knowing shit is knowing something at the very least!

You know Theo, for a young one you seem wise beyond your years!!!! It seems to me that you must be a very old soul just trapped in a teenage body! You amaze me!

there is comfort in the last statement oddly enough... if you never know anything, if you don't even have the start of knowledge, then there is an infinity out there to in which to learn and grow... the first two lines are attention getting, and i'm lovin the flow... good job.
