    From childhood's hour I have not been
    As others were-I have not seen
    As others saw-I could not bring
    My passions from a common spring.
    From the same source I have not taken
    My sorrow;I could not awaken
    My heart to joy at the same tone;
    And all I lov'd, I lov'd alone.
    Then-in my childhood-in the dawn
    Of a most stormy life-was drawn
    From ev'ry depth of good and ill
    The mystery that binds me still:
    From the torrent, or the fountain,
    From the red cliff of the mountain,
    From the sun that round me roll'd
    In its autumn tint of gold
    From the lightninig in the sky
    As it pass'd me flying by
    From the thunder and the storm,
    And the cloud that took the form
    (When the rest of heaven was blue)
    Of a demon in my view.

    Alone...listless...breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
    Young girl...violins...center of her own attention
    The mother reads aloud, child, tries to understand it
    Tries to make her proud

    The shades go down, it’s in her head
    Painted room...can’t deny there’s something wrong...

    Don’t call me daughter, not fit to
    The picture kept will remind me
    Don’t call me daughter, not fit to
    The picture kept will remind me
    Don’t call me...

    She holds the hand that holds her down
    She will...rise above...

    Don’t call me daughter, not fit to
    the picture kept will remind me
    don’t call me Daughter, not fit to be
    the picture kept will remind me
    don’t call me...

    The shades go down (2x) the shades go, go, go...

    Alone, from LemonJello, the Formative Years:

    alone: myself and an eternity with The Sublime
    but what the hell to do with an infinite sea of time?
    drink it up, and then urinate on those below
    like ants on linoleum, they scurry to and fro
    "Lemon, have you seen His Majesty's magnifying glass?"
    "Indeed, God. But haven't you pestered the poor ants enough?"
