How old do you have to be?
To be free, to be light, to revel in delight,
light light delight.
Where are the boundaries?
Where are the limits?
Nowhere, not here, not there.
Far away, go away, can't stay.
Can't stay away. Never, never, always and forever.
Fall, I'll catch you. Fly, fly away. Away?
In the sky? Yes the sky, on a high, on and on, further and further.
On a race: no pressure, no pressure, take your time, you have all the time.
Where'd the time go? Right here. Time flies.
There is no way to measure time.
Smash the clock, it's time to fly.

Again, pretty good poem. The first 3 quarters of it aren't as good as Sleeping Insomniac, but the ending is way better
