Psychedelic Warlords

We're sick of politicians
harassment and laws
All we do is get screwed up
by other people's flaws
World turned upside down now
there's nothing else to do
But live in concrete jungles
that just block up the view

And that ain't no joke,
you can disappear in smoke
And that ain't no joke,
you can disappear in smoke
I'm telling you, that ain't no lie

You think you know the answers
but we don't tell no lies
We can take you anyway
through seven different highs
World turned upside down now,
there's nothing else to do,
but live in concrete jungles,
but they block up the views

D - Rider

We're children playing in the sun
A sense of freedom on the run
We never knew what time it was
We just knew how sublime it was

Our course determined by our stars
My momma knows just where we are
The Earth was forming from below
A dragon showed which way to go

Spacing out, we're spacing in
Phasing out, we're phasing in
Turning up by burning out
Lifting off and gazing in

Our luck, it changes with the tide
Our constellations changing side
Macro mirror-image fades
Our over-conscience colour shades

We're astral-planing, floating free
On our continuum frequency
A ring was formed out of the stone Metamorphose, tetraform

Spacing out, we're spacing in
Phasing out, by phasing in
Turning up by burning out
Lifting off and gazing in

Web Weaver

Larynx cries no longer heard
A chord was struck that chilled the nerve
It froze the time that we all lived
The roles reversed to downward spin
Is life finished or hung within
The voices pleading went unheard
And shattered membranes of our lives
Hung suspended from the hives
Where the harmony the sad voices waned

You'd Better Believe It

I wandered far in lands unknown
until I came to my earthly home
Far away I found life's dream
drifting on a silver beam

You'd better believe it,
it's so easy to say
it's so easy to say
it's so easy to say

Travelling twice the speed of light
Orion's stars are high tonight
The gentle madness has touched my hand
Now I'm just a cosmic man

You'd better believe it,
it's so easy to say
it's so easy to say
it's so easy to say

Lost Johnny

You only get a single chance
The rules are very plain
The truth is well concealed inside
The details of the game
You can see it coming
You can hear it from afar
It's pale and it flickers
Like a faded movie star

And up there in the castle
They're trying to make us scream
By sticking thumb tacks in her flesh
And cancelling the dream
Can you find the Valium?
Can you bring it soon?
Lost Johnny's out there
Baying at the Moon

The time has come for you to choose
You'd better get it right
Berlin girls with sharp white teeth
Are waiting in the night
But you 'oughta really get some
It surely can't be hard
There's always trouble waiting
When you leave your own back yard

And underneath the city
The alligators sing
About how the puppets cannot dance
Since someone cut the strings

Run and get the morphine
For God's sake make it brief
Lost Johnny's out there
Looking for relief

Now Simon looks so evil
And you know he really tries
But every time he makes a play
That vital number dies
And Sally buys her underwear
From a store where no-one goes
She makes it big in photographs
On the strength of what she shows

And here inside the waiting room
The radio still screams
And we're all taking Tuenol
To murder our young dreams

Run and fetch your credit card
Try to make it quick
Lost Johnny's out there
Trying to turn a trick

Goat Willow

Paradox
(Dave Brock)

The story that I'm telling you
Something that you can do
Ask yourself and try to find the answer

See the signs they're always there
But you know you never care
You're always looking for another reason

Try to reach it's not too far
See it as you really are
Ask yourself, to try and find the answer

Always, always it's the same thing
Try it, try it, you just can't win
Circles, circles spinning round
People, people
Always bring you
Down and down
Round and round you go
