1. Mrs Bob says you use the straw, water and lion poop to build a wall between you and the lion. :poo: :poo: :poo:

How about imagine yourself not in the cage...

I don't like staying at home
When the moon is bleeding red
Woke up stoned in the backseat from a dream where my teeth fell out of my head
Cut it up, cut it up, yeah
Everybody's on something here. My God send chemical best friend. Skeleton whispering in my ear

You are definitely on the right track, 'imagine' is the key word.

In fact, I'll give it to you as that is close enough

The official answer is 'stop imagining'.

Correct, well done

When you write the letters in group 1 in lower case, part of the letter is below the line.
