lyrics

Remember when you drove
From deep within the south
To the california coast
All the way back home
A schizophrenic mind
So eager to be kind
But foolish to believe
That there would be understanding
That there would be belief
Phoenix was on fire
The glowing of the sunset
Was promising the end
A blessing for the dead
The earth was scorched with passion
And drinking heat refractions
The Idiot’s coming home
Through boiling swamps and desert roads
With freedom from the grave
Healing for the lame
Disassembling fantasy
With the beauty of reality

They say “the earth is rich and beautiful
The heavens void unlivable
Come back rejoin our cult
It’s just a clearing of the throat”
Cause now you are the rebel
To the hippies and the devil
A megaphone downtown
A prophet and a clown
Incurring wrath of rulers
Revealing unjust measures
And they can hear you shout
Words they’ll never care about
The pack knows only doubting
These wolves in sheep clothing
Are teaching in the valley
Where the children run headlong to the grave
