The Blue

the sun is out today
plenty of time to roam

i’am walking around
no destination in mind
the only way in life
i’ve known
the road of what does
the future hold

i fill mine
with paper and ink
sun and rain
i get wet
but i don’t cry

the sun doesn’t know
the reason why
the sun doesn’t know
the difference between
a wealthy man
and a lacking one

the only life
i know
is moving around
the blue

perhaps you don’t know
what laughter is
spend enough time with me
you’ll find out
my humor
my knowledge
perceive the way
i see
i believe

in my world the sun has purple poka dots
the moon is made of parmesan cheese
cows make chocolate milk
everyone likes to sing

i don’t know
the reasons why
there’s something
in the path
which traces the clouds
in the sky

like a circle
there is no end
it’s a pursuit
we all enter in

the sun doesn’t know
the reason why
my future is filled
with paper and ink
the sun doesn’t know
the difference

the only life
i know
is moving around
the blue
