Jan lays down and wrestles in her sleep
Moonlight spills on comic books
And superstars in magazines
An old friend calls and tells us where to meet
Her plane takes off from Baltimore
And touches down on Bourbon street

We sit outside and argue all night long
About a god we've never seen
But never fails to side with me
Sunday comes and all the papers say
Ma Teresa's joined the mob
And happy with her full time job

Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
Does summer come for everyone?
Can humans do what prophets say?
If I die before I learn to speak
Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
But half asleep?

A life is time, they teach you growing up
The seconds ticking killed us all
A million years before the fall
You ride the waves and don't ask where they go
You swim like lions through the crest
And bathe yourself in zebra flesh

I've been downhearted baby
Ever since the day we met

hey i'd like to daze away to a place no one has known
in a state of mind i could call mine, that only i could own
where i could hum a tune any time i choose
and there's no such thing as time
where i can feel no pain, just calm and sane
what a place for one to find

-blind melon



i close my eyes
only for a moment and the moment's gone
all my dreams
best before my eyes a curiosity
dust in the wind
all they are is dust in the wind
same old song
just a drop of water in an endless sea
all we do
crumbles to the ground but we refuse to see
dust in the wind
all they are is dust in the wind
don't hang on
nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
it slips away
and all your money won't another minute buy
dust in the wind
all we are is dust in the wind
everything is dust in the wind

fine art never moved my soul
no vintage wine designer clothes
but my world shakes for me
my bird sings sweetly
a different kind of tinsel decorates my tree
yes my bird performs
a thousand cheshire cats
grin inside of me
yes my bird performs
there she goes
shakespeare's sonnets leave me cold
the drama stage and the high brow prose
but my world shakes for me
my bird sings sweetly
the brightest fireworks
are lighting up my sky
yes my bird performs
the cage is open
but she's no desire to fly
'cause my bird performs
there she goes
and you keep saying what you got
you keep saying what you got
look out!

breathe it in and breathe it out
and pass it on, it's almost out
we're so creative, so much, more
we're high above but on the floor
it's not a habit, it's cool, i feel alive
if you don't have it you're on the other side
the deeper you stick it in your vein
the deeper the thoughts, there's no more pain
i'm in heaven, i'm a god
i'm everywhere, i feel so hot
it's not a habit, it's cool, i feel alive
if you don't have it you're on the other side
i'm not an addict (maybe that's a lie)
it's over now, i'm cold, alone
i'm just a person on my own
nothing means a thing to me
oh nothing means a thing to me
it's not a habit, it's cool, i feel alive
if you don't have it you're on the other side
i'm not an addict (maybe that's a lie)
free me, leave me
watch me as i'm going down
free me, see me
look at me, i'm falling and i'm falling...
it's not a habit, it's cool, i feel alive I feel...
it's not a habit, it's cool, i feel alive
if you don't have it you're on the other side
i'm not an addict (maybe that's a lie)
i'm not an addict...

speaking of venturing beyond one's walls, i wonder
why so many people are so sure that narcotics are
the only way to do it. perhaps what is in order is going
in the complete oppositte direction and exploring ones
new mental universes with a clear mind, that is being
pushed somewhere new not by chemicals, well its own
chemicals anyway, but by the sheer will of the mind's
owner.

-mr. sparkle's experiment


and i'd give up forever to touch you
'cause i know that you feel me somehow
you're the closest to heaven that i'll ever be
and i don't wanna go home right now
and all i can taste is this moment
and all i can breathe is your life
and sooner or later it's over
i just don't wanna miss you tonight

on the edge of sleep,
i was driting for half the night
anxious and restless,
pressed down by the darkness
bound up and wound up so tight
so many decisions, a million revisions
caught between darkness and light...

wilderness of mirrors
world of polished steel
gears and iron chains
turn the grinding wheel
i run between the shadows
some are phantoms, some are real
...
on the edge of sleep,
i heard voices behind the door
the known and the nameless,
familiar and faceless
my angels and my demons at war
which one will lose - depends on what I choose
or maybe which voice I ignore...

wilderness of mirrors
streets of cold desire
my precious sense of honor
just a shield of rusty wire
i hold against the chaos -
and the cross of holy fire...
wilderness of mirrors
so easy to deceive
my precious sense of rightness
is sometimes so naive
so that which I imagine
is that which I believe

on the edge of sleep, I awoke to a sun so bright
rested and fearless, cheered by your nearness
i knew which direction was right
the case had been tried by the jury inside
the choice between darkness and light...

i took her out it was friday night
i wore cologne to get the feeling right
we started making out and she took off my pants
but then I turned on the TV
and that’s about the time that she walked away from me
nobody likes you when you’re 23
and are still more amused by TV shows
what the hell is ADD?
my friends say I should act my age
what’s my age again?
what’s my age again?
then later on, on the drive home
i called her mom from a pay phone
i said I was the cops
and your husband’s in jail
this state looks down on sodomy
and that’s about the time that bitch hung up on me
nobody likes you when your 23
and are still more amused by prank phone calls
what the hell is caller ID?
my friends say I should act my age
what’s my age again?
what’s my age again?
and that’s about the time she walked away from me
nobody likes you when your 23
and you still act like you’re in Freshman year
what the hell is wrong with me?
my friends say I should act my age
what’s my age again?
what’s my age again?
that’s about the time she broke up with me
no one should take themselves so seriously
with many years ahead to fall in line
why would you wish that on me?
i never want to act my age
what’s my age again?
what’s my age again?

when dreaming, i'm guided to another world,
time and time again
at sunrise, i fight to stay asleep
cause i don't want to leave the comfort of this place
cause there's a hunger, a longing to escape
from the life i live when i'm awake
so let's go there, let's make our escape
let's go there, let's ask, "can we stay?"

-creed



there's only us
there's only this
forget regret,
or life is yours to miss
no other road
no other way
no day but today

-rent



take me to another place, she said
take me to another time
run with me across the oceans
float me on a silver cloud
if i could i would, but i don't know how
if i could i would, but i don't know how
if i could i would, and i'd take you now

-phish



feels like...
i'm standing in a timeless dream
of light mists... of pale amber rose
feels like...
i'm lost in a deep cloud of heavenly scent
touching, discovering you

--donna lewis



when you feel your life aint worth livin
you've got to stand up and take a look around you
then a look way up to the sky
and when your deepest thoughts are broken
keep on dreamin boy cause when you stop dreamin
its time to die
and as we all play parts of tommorrow
some ways will work and other ways we'll play
but i know we can't all stay here forever
so i'm gonna write my words on the face of today

across the vein of night
there cuts a path of searing light
burning like a beacon
on the edges of our sight
at the point of total darkness
and the light's divine divide
a soul can let its shadow stretch
and land on either side

and balanced on the precipice
the moment must reveal
naked in the face of time
our race within the wheel
as we hang beneath the heavens
and we hover over hell
our hearts become the instruments
we learn to play so well

wealthy the spirit that knows its own flight
stealthy the hunter who slays his own fright
blessed the traveller
who journeys the length of the light

outside the pull of gravity
beyond the spectral veil
within our careful reasoning
we search to no avail
for the constant in the chaos
for the fulcrum in the void
following a destiny
our steps cannot avoid

across the vein of night
there cuts a path of searing light
burning like a beacon
on the edges of our sight
at the point of total darkness
and the light's divine divide
a soul can let its shadow stretch
and land on either side

wealthy the spirit that knows its own flight
stealthy the hunter who slays his own fright
blessed the traveller
who journeys the length of the light

in a spiral never ending
are we drawn towards the source
spinning at the mercy of an unrelenting force
so we stare into the emptiness
and fall beneath the weight
circling the nexus in a fevered dance with fate

wealthy the spirit that knows its own flight
stealthy the hunter who slays his own fright
blessed the traveller
who journeys the length of the light

...and the road becomes my bride
I have stripped of all but pride
so in her I do confide
and she keeps me satisfied
gives me all I need

...and with dust in throat I crave
only knowledge will I save
to the game you stay a slave
rover wanderer
nomad vagabond
call me what you will

but I'll take my time anywhere
free to speak my mind anywhere
and I'll redefine anywhere
anywhere I may roam
where I lay my head is home

...and the earth becomes my throne
I adapt to the unknown
under wandering stars I've grown
by myself but not alone
I ask no one

...and my ties are severed clean
the less I have the more I gain
off the beaten path I reign
rover wanderer
nomad vagabond
call me what you will

but I'll take my time anywhere
I'm free to speak my mind anywhere
and I'll never mind anywhere
anywhere I may roam
where I lay my head is home

but i'll take my time anywhere
free to speak my mind
and I'll take my find anywhere
anywhere I may roam
where I lay my head is home

carved upon my stone
my body lie, but still I roam
wherever I may roam

-metallica


if you wanna be brave,
reach for the top of the sky
and the farthest point on the horizon
do you know who you'll meet there?
great soldiers and seafarers,
artists and dreamers
who need to be close, close to the light
they need to be in danger of burning by fire
and i, i wanna get there
i wanna be one,
one who is touched by the sun
often i want to walk
the safe side of the street
and lull myself to sleep
and dull my pain
but deep down inside i know
i've got to learn from the greats,
earn my right to be living
let my wings of desire
soar over the night
i need to let them say
she must have been mad
and i, i wanna get there
i, i wanna be one,
one who is touched by the sun

george, george, george of the jungle
strong as he can be
watch out for that tree
george, george, george of the jungle
lives a life that's free
watch out for that tree

-george of the jungle theme


life is hard
and so am i
you'd better give me something
so i don't die
novicane for the soul
before i sputter out
