Well I guess I have a story of someone who has a story about how they overcame
A bloated grief within their system, how they came to find a simple cure
Billowing within their framework, lenses seeing things they never saw
I suspect they wrote the answers down so I can take a cue from what they found

Doing this for research (so you know)
I’m asking for a friend (should you wonder)

Gonna walk to the river
And I’ll get a little breather
Gonna give myself a go
Gonna take it in slow
And pave myself a road
Gonna let it all simmer down
Ain’t it so
That’s all I know

Do you ever wonder if there is a simple system to how all this works?
Some kind of structure you can model and tailor to what you want?
Something that is easy yet it challenges you to use your head
I guess if this were easy there would be no point to what I ask of you

But sometimes I get fidgety and all
So I propose a thinker for us all

So let’s walk to the river
And we’ll get a little breather
And we’ll give ourselves a go
And we’ll take it in slow
And pave ourselves a road
Then we’ll let it all simmer down
Ain’t it so
That’s all we know

I wonder if there is a happy ever after
A happy ever after in this world
I wonder why I just need to know the answers
I need to know the answers
Right now
Right now
Right now
