lyrics

Beardless and full of life
We rode down on our bikes
To the old railroad station

Everyday the same old shelves
Freshbooks to fantasize ourselves
A brand new world's temptations

We gambled our names and won
A paper castle to build for fun

We were dubbed the Knights of Cardstock
Defenders of the Writes of Heart Aught
Brandishing exacto swords and rubber band slings
Against the cubicle creatures with the ninety five wings
Nothing could defeat us within our walls
Our paper castle standing tall

Step by step and page by page
You were the instruction sage
I just kinda watched with elation

Instead of mortar and bricks
Hot glue and popsicle sticks
A Print Kingdom came to creation

Each peasant the size of a pin
We were rulers of every inch

We were dubbed the Knights of Cardstock
Defenders of the Writes of Heart Aught
Brandishing exacto swords and rubber band slings
Against the cubicle creatures with the ninety five wings
Nothing could defeat us within our walls
Our paper castle standing tall

The problem with paper is that it tears
We start to grow up and grow facial hair
We traded our two wheels for four
Let those dragons knock down the door

We are given a supply of cardstock
Pretenders then, now we watch the clock
We traded our fun and imaginary guns
For a pile of paper green ones
I’ll always remember a time
That these hours can’t fill
You and I
and our paper castle
