The Lyrics

Did you ever think you were on some really heavy trip? Your mind’s expanded; new world’s happening – change…and it just seems like things would never be the same again…and then, d’oh…you wake up. Well, here we go.
[Instrumental Intro]

I bought a lid
It was good sh*t
there’s nothin’ finer
that I ever rolled
It was real fresh, man
just took one hit
I started lurchin’
then I passed out cold
That sh*t took its toll

When I came to I smoked another bowl
Stoned me to my soul

[instrumental break]

I hope it’s understood
that sh*t was real good
I got this notion
from where I don’t know
Thoughts entered my mind
Weird omens and signs
Their teachings; urgent
Future; they foretold
New World’s did unfold

Like Brain Detergent; cleared my head of mold
Hit me like a pole

[instrumental break]

Needed no urging
smoked another bowl
I felt this merging
with some older soul
I was not certain
what would be my role
And then my girlfriend said,
“Wake up, Asshole”

D’oh, du-uu-ude…

Mer - hmmm...maybe it was that OTHER stuff I took with it??? AFW, Ann, UKVO - Thanks! Jason - well, maybe "semi-regular". At present time I'm not writing too much, but I have a huge back-log of stuff I never got around to posting...some of which CANNOT be posted for...ahem..."Content reasons", some were "Current Topics" that have since lost their currency, but that still leaves quite a few. I have to start sifting through them and see what I think might amuse or edify some readers. Thanks!
