The last time I saw my mom and dad, I was eight going on nine... eight years, six months, and three days... almost as old as you are, they were going on tour and leaving me behind for the first time, because they didn't want me missing anymore school and they came to my room to say goodbye and I wouldn't open the door, so they left. I fell asleep and then the next thing I know, my nanny was waking me up in the middle of the night telling me their plane had crashed
You're lucky... that you were mad, see when you're mad you don't miss people and if you stay mad, it's like you never knew them at all... that way you don't have to feel sucky about it... you were lucky...
I wasn't mad, I was confused... everyone was talking and I couldn't understand a word they were saying and then their voices became a blur and soon I couldn't even recognize their faces, they were like these blobs and they started to grow fangs and their eyes became green and I knew I had to runaway, so I packed my knapsack, got on the train, and looked up at the map and decided I wanted to live on Coney Island, I thought it would be... you know... a real island. That I thought I could hide their like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin, but imagine my surprise... the teacups were the only ride they would let me on by myself, so I got on it and I started spinning around and 'round and 'round. But I feel like I am still there... spinning 'round and 'round and 'round... and the ride won't stop... you were right, Ray, I am scared, but you're scared too, you're scared as I am and I thought that maybe if we could go together...
