Drag the river for clues of what went bad
That's a thing we've never done
Tie the straps to the pallet and ship it back
A dream I never had
And this will not mess you up
But it just might set us back
Press the gates
Tighten the grip because I'm back
That's a memory to have
Trap the insects and display them in the stacks
We never got that far
