Cheer Up Shelley

Shelley is impatient for the answer and unsteady without one. Her quest for knowledge has led her to religion and science alike. Faith fills the gaps, but she now rests assured that that's all faith can do. Written for the 12/13/04 Songfight! challenge, and my first win!

words - what do they know?
words - where do they go?
it seems like almost
two minutes ago
i had a kazoo in my pocket
i took no pictures
it's not documented
but here i am talking about it

there's lots you don't know
more than they'll ever show
so cheer up shelley
though we'll never get there
we'll keep trying ever after
there may be no answer
even that's not failing
to rise above all of their laughter

so cheer up shelley
though we'll never get there
we'll keep trying ever after
