Realistic Symphony

Realistic Symphony Perfection by these standards a myth Having everything you want A woman, her eighth, and fifth Fractions multiplying width Carry all your weight on front Still, the callendar catches cloud nine To pay the high Price Or a similar currency Converting yesterday to tomorrow Put the future on ice To melt the past currently Don't owe something that you know is hollow Make yourself a world of good Built on a foundation of wisdom Take your time in choosing wood Wrong kinds make the termites come But if you stumble upon decay Let the rotten rooms crumble away Build a wall with a song, and a window So you can see where you used to be Sing yourself a strong crescendo In a realistic symphony The song is long, and hard, but worth it Everyone's flawed, but everyone's perfect
