Opening LyricsSong Title
We sailed up a river wide as a sea, and slept on the banks on the leaves of a banyan tree...
You've got the cool water when the fever runs high. You've got that look of love light in your eyes.
Well I'm accustomed to a smooth ride, or maybe I'm a dog who's lost his bite.
'The problem is all inside your head,' she said to me...
After I'd died and the make-up had dried I went back to my place.
It was a slow day, and the sun was beating on the soldiers by the side of the road.
Down among the reeds and rushes, a baby boy was found; his eyes as clear as centuries, his silky hair was brown.

The Mississippi Delta was shining like a national guitar.
The couple in the next room are bound to win a prize, they've been going at it all night long.
Fat Charlie the archangel sloped into the room.
A man walks down the street and he says 'Why am I soft in the middle now? Why am I soft in the middle when the rest of my life is so hard?'
If you leap awake in the mirror of a bad dream and for a fraction of a second you can't remember where you are...
