get out your kaleidoscope, let's pay a visit to the park. i'll meet you by the barbecue grill. we'll find the hydrants in the dark, unscrew them & start a river. pretend we had a raft. you can be captain, that's fine, i'll man the mast. when we were sailing, i watched time slip away; you drew the lines with your compass & i was ready to obey. fractal patterns charted a course to bombay, or anywhere the winds could take us. we were ready to take on anything. fearless us, mighty pirates now, streaming down this snowy river way. "set a course for booty!" i yelled as we turned into a sad cliche. i had your laugh in my head while i was charting the attack. "they've got guns & bayonets, so watch your back." when we were sailing, i watched time slip away; you drew the lines with your compass & i was ready to obey. fractal patterns turning our ship every way. didn't know which way home was & it was getting kind of late. so you got out your kaleidoscope & rotated to a new degree. we spotted two park rangers in a golf cart heading out to sea. i nearly jumped overboard. "run them through! make em walk the plank!" but they blew apart the galley & we sank.
