Sky’s song grew from his sister’s adolescent poem, but when did they realize they’d created an eerie recollection of life with their father?
Music By Schuyler VanGunten
(Lyrics are an early poem by his sister)
Well, I ran away with a silly cartoon, and it was a blast, but we only got about a mile and a half. Steam rollers laid him flat and we had to inflate him again.
My friend, he was like a candle, but he was burning at both ends.
He’d laugh in my face, til he melted away, he was a scream, yea, a real Walt Disney dream. And he could juggle sticks of dynamite, yea, it was really a thrill.
My friend, he was a loon, he’d leave a tip, but he wouldn’t pay the bill.
Silly Cartoon, yea, he was a riot, he would scoff, he’d say, You ain’t hated it until you tried it. Sometimes, on Tuesdays, we forgot our brains, just wandering a suburban maze, mumbling lines to Shakespeare’s plays.
And I really loved the silly cartoon, yea, he was a blast.
But he drove us so fast, we crashed.
