Lullaby for Adults

When you were little, Julian
What did you think was the color of sky
Did you think it blue, like it is in the day?
Or did you think it black, like it is now?

When you were little, Julian
What did you think happened to old people
Did you think they were immortal, like they seemed to be?
Or did you think they died, like they do now?

When you were little, Julian
What did you think happened to grown ups
Did you think they were happy, like they seemed to be
Or did you think them pretentious, like you know now?

When you were little, Julian
What did you think was gonna happen to you
Did you think you would grow up, like you wanted to then?
Or did you think you would stay the same, like you wish now?
