  • You were a shameless child
    Bandied by stiff cross currents
    Anything but mild
    Yes and no just simply weren't
    Invented yet
    Oh yes oh no

    Then one day you'd had it
    Exiled your close advisers
    Ousted your dog-eared rabbits
    You're through with pacifiers
    You're through with pacifiers now

    Here we go mistaking clouds for mountains
    Here's the thing that brings the sparrows to the fountains
    Here's the thing that makes you run for the highlands
    Here we go mistaking clouds for mountains
