When I was a boy, I would always hear scary things in the news and my mother would say to me, "Always look for the helpers. Everywhere you look you will always find people helping." - Fred Rogers


Listen to the utterance of unforgivable sin.
Death rising up in the spires.
From friends and faces and beautiful kin.
All gone, all dry, all liars.

Just take the facades all away, and what do you find?
Just a picture to remember the instructions by?
I remember, at the start of the shows.
I'd say that nobody's there. Nobody knows.

Practice and practice. Wind up. Repeat.
Watch the caged, ladies and gentlemen, just stay right in your seat.
Acquire your bags, dear sir, take a break to the lights.
Cross the bridges just like before.
Run away from here. Go and see the sights.
Wash up cold, and yearning on shore.
