The revolution of the Earth around the sun, is a perfect lesson of how it should be. If I cannot learn, to journey and return, to never rest to see all I can see.


I've lived more places than I bought in Monopoly
But in honesty, I stole money from my company
That's just the Game Of Life
The Shoots And Ladders always led me wrong way
Who wants luck, when you have strategy

Those two straight lines set my site
Two lines that drive my soul
Sure I never stopped at three the guiding lights
Guess my Scruples were never right

Soon I'm back from having to 'go fish' again
And I'm stuck in my own Mouse Trap
The carousel slows down and Barbie loses her grip
Kens helps the monkeys back in her barrel, they still don't fit
Just make sure you Don't Wake Daddy

Those two straight lines set my site
Two lines that drive my soul
Sure I never stopped at three the guiding lights
Guess my Scruples were never right

Daddy catches on
With help of those two straight lines, I'm playing Guess Who again
Maybe I will never have a permanent CandyLand
And without knowing, I've rolled my dice again
Lucky thing, my two straight lines still drive this soul.


The author's comments:
Some of the happiest moments of my life have been spent in a car. Moving, traveling, being able to stare, pensively out the window. Peace in my family. Total zen. I was just thinking about that the whole time while traveling today. How I spent a lot of my childhood that way. So all the kids games are metaphors.
Mouse trap = Being stuck in the house again
Don't wake daddy = My dads work, having to move again
Barbie = When I start losing my group on everything and I try to get all my stuff together, but I'd rather live it through someone else through acting
Never stopped at the 3 lights = traffic lights, but its how I never slow down or think about anything, too much impulse
Playing guess who again, moving to a knew place, going to one, not knowing anyone
