Today I saw the rest of the world 
No one noticed 
Cause I curled 
Under a tree pondering the meaning
On the faces passing by 
Too nervous to cast an eye to eye
They pass me by, they pass me bye

Today I fell in love with the sky
It kissed my face with it’s watery grace
And I loved it back with my eyes 
The clouds smiled at me, 
Extended their hands and carried me
Away away away, today 

Today I caught a peek in a pond
My face was worried and wet and wound
I stared at myself and everything else 
Was gone a moment
of complete Self in fat you a tion 
Feelings that fit into our shell fish

Today I fell asleep on the ground 
I woke up and no one was around
My song forgotten on the leafs 
My thoughts as carefree as the breeze
And no one understands it all
We’re lost and eventually 
We fall
Today today today 

Is just like the day before and yesterday
