For My Child:

You are the lynchpin to this entire operation
You are the oxytocin to my tears
The skeleton that holds every single one of my fears
Lets try it on then play catch in the yard

One day you'll grow up to lose your mind
Latch the fence in the meantime so it doesn't stray far
Smile like you mean it
Let the laughter pull your face apart
Drag the pieces in like a cat at the doorstep

Shake Up:

Sometimes I feel like one of those white boys on tv
So I shoot for the stars even if I land in a puddle
And I guess my brain isn't quite plugged in yet
So I keep dodging questions and mountains of you

Children afraid
Watch out

I've got a score to settle with some bullet points and thumb tacks
And a whole wide world waiting for a response
Somebody tell me what would happen if you shook a jar of fools
Would they just crumble?
Or just grumble?

Children afraid
Watch out
