I threw you away
So I could play
I wanted the other side
What I didn’t know
I was walking so fast
Now walking slow
Around (I ran?) to the butcher
He cut me up
I took a lot of years
For the pieces to get back
Slow walking now
Got no place to go
And I don’t care
I feel like I’m there
I’m at the playground
But I’m watching the children
I can’t play nothing
I don’t know how
The spirit moves me
Along with the breeze
I alight on some sidewalk
It must be the park
I like the flowers
I like the statues
I threw you away
So I could play
