I bet you never thought
That this day would come
The day when I could touch you
Be near you
And breathe in your scent

After more than five years
Of bimonthly injections
This glorious day
Has finally arrived

Consider this revenge
For the rashes and runny noses
Consider this revenge
For the hives and itchy eyes
Consider this revenge
For all the days
I had to be a bubble child

Your reign is over, grass
The gas tank is full
All I have to do is pull the cord
It’s payback time

Yeah, allergies suck. I used to have horrible migraines and I couldn't breathe. Going outside during springtime was almost suicidal for me, until I found a medication that worked for me. Glad something like that happened to you.

Well, I don't have allergies a bad as you but I understand your joy that you can go outside and mow for the first time. I have asthma that restricts me from do everything that I want to do.
