We Are the Ones Who Read As Children

We Are the Ones Who Read As Children
Music: Lyndon Heart
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

We are the ones who read as children
We know why the caged bird sings
We know the ruby shoes are silver
We know four hobbits bore the ring

We are the ones who read as children
We know Carroll’s portmanteaus
We know nightingales restore good health
We know where the red fern grows

We are the ones who read as children
We know Charlotte is the clever one
We know bunnies whisper “Goodnight Moon”
We know wax wings should fear the sun

We are the ones who read as children
We know which stars to wish upon
We know Karana is a secret name
We know why Charlie mourns for Algernon

We are the ones who read as children
We know that velveteen is real
We know Mrs. Frisby saves the Rats of NIMH
We know how the silkworm feels

We are the ones who read as children
We are abstract and transcendental
We hide the things that you would steal
We are the angst in existential

We are the ones who read as children
Beneath bridges and bell jars
We are the ones who read as children
And all these worlds are ours
