On my little world made in the image of you

Well, I am too young and they are too old"

I awoke from dreams of untying a great knot
It unraveled like a braid into what seemed were thousands
Of separate strands of fishing line
Attached to coarse behavior, it flowed
A calm it urged, what else is here?”

"I watch 'em all pass by the moon and stars
Let me hold him in my arms, forevermore
These cold nights, the park is ours
Standing by the side
Let you go on
To the sea, just for me
Don't ever leave me, my love
Keep holding on, let the modest go
As my mind goes to and fro
Waking up for one more show
We see him in the night
Tell him I'm not afraid of him"
- Childish Gambino, Urn
