lyrics

Thanks for the cash in hand and in pocket
and the stash of the family good will
and all the lovely places to crash here in town
and up on the hill.

Under your attitude of latitude
they say I grew so unnaturally,
from necessity free, free of want, free of will
free in every way.

Come take your pills, take your pulse
and watch your sons turn their open minds
to the science of love
in the service of the Golden Ones.

Every time that a brilliant light shines
in the dark of our barbarian minds,
a Golden One dies.
Everything that you made of me,
all my precious person-ality,
is gone to the Golden Love.

Oh my garden days, the easy ways,
the guardians down with the wolves at the gate.
You wouldn’t want to be late
to your own cremation. (Creation?)

I’m tuned to love,
tuned to the touch
of the holiest stations
and the forbidden springs of the ancients.

Come take your pills, take your pulse
and watch your sons turn their open minds
to the science of love
in the service of the Golden Ones.

Every time that a brilliant light shines
in the dark of our barbarian minds,
a Golden One dies.
Everything that you made of me,
all my precious person-ality,
is gone to the Golden Love.

If I waste away or I die in these streets,
I know you want say you don’t care
or wash your hands of me.
