Lyrics:

Back when I was a child, oh my middle school days, lazy ways
I would look in amazement at the world was so large
My family, my father was so in charge
My lover, oh, she's gone to be in the mountain with the stars
And so I go to school, and my imagination runs wild
Making up beats, with my teeth, never pencils they don't teach you
How to find yourself or be an individual
You can learn what you need to from the other kids in school
Quiet down children listen up, um...
We know you don't give a fuck, so
This is the story of when I was your age
Celebrating my first birthday with my toys in my cage

And I feel far too much cuz the love for my world is too strong
Sometimes I think that it's wrong, feelings like this just won't last forever
Cuz the times that I miss they've been lost to me for far too long
Until now I've written this song, I must make peace with what's happened in here

And so I go to school, and nothing more than I have realized
There is no truth, there are no lies, who knows?
I like to live slow, watching the sun rise
Sitting on my patio, stop by and say "hi"
I think about those days no haze of when I was a boy
Visiting the grocery store, to feed my frogs some more
Tadpoles bring pure joy, and cheese and deli ham
Blue skys, big eyes, small hands, Lake Michigan sand
How we thought life was fair
Summer mornings with no warnings fresh cut grass in the air
Sitting in my basement, is how my days went
Headphones, marijuana, nightly vacations
And this all stems from what I have seen
And felt from this life that which I have perceived
Thank God for what little I do believe in
Thank me, the Earth, that I'm still breathing

And I feel far too much cuz the love for my world is too strong
Sometimes I think that it's wrong, feelings like this just won't last forever
Cuz the times that I miss they've been lost to me for far too long
Until now I've written this song, I must make peace with what's happened in here

Oh my childhood, the sounds that were so good, the songs I knew I could
Oh I'm home again, and in my mind I'm thinking of when

I am a child.
