My oh my, oh time, what did you do with me?
Let me fall and land and crawl, and for a week.
Stretch me thin, I'm with the wind
and blooming through.
Keep me close, the air is cold--I can't see you.
Oh what did I do?

(I should have been someone else by now)

My oh my, oh time, what can I do to leave?
Take me home, where nothing grows
that will not speak.
“I was here” say souvenirs we’ll never use.
Keep me close, and I’ll say we’re as-good-as-new.
What can I bring you?

I’ve been gone awhile,
while the leaves all take off.

We are The Commonwealth, a group of young men with a Protestant work ethic and a winning smile. We are also grass-fed and cage-free.
