Come a little closer -
I never learned to walk.

I never learned to talk.

My steps are met with splinters
or they are out of line.
There's wisdom in what you say.
Say it all the time:

"Everything's sad if you make it so."

Tell me where to tread.
I'll follow in your stead
down pathways so well defined.
I will fall behind.

Help me find my way around.
Everything's the wrong way 'round.
Somehow the world turned inside-out
and I wasn't looking.
