High Time

Lyrics By: Robert Hunter

You told me goodbye
How was I to know
You didn't mean goodbye
You meant please don't let me go
I was having a high time
Living the good life
Well I know

The wheels are muddy
Got a ton of hay
Now listen here baby
'Cause I mean what I say
I'm having a hard time
Living the good life
Well I know

I was losing time, I had nothing to do
No-one to fight, I came to you
Wheels broke down, the leader won't draw
The line is busted, the last one I saw

Tomorrow comes trouble
Tomorrow comes pain
Now don't think too hard, baby
'Cause you know what I'm saying
I could show you a high time
Living the good life
Don't be that way

Nothing's for certain
It could always go wrong
Come in when it's raining
Go on out when it's gone
We could have us a high time
Living the good life
Well I know

Snow falls

The sound of the snow plows
Growling through the city streets
Laying down the plow with a metallic concussion
I felt it in my bones three floors up
Walking through the city neighborhoods
The sounds of car tires compressing powder,
Dogs barking carrying through back yards
The scritch scritch scritch of the
Snowshovel on amacite
Surrounding you, wherever you go
Someone is digging out.
When that city dumptruck plow
hits the road, it sounds like a bomb
And then hard scraping with sparks flying
And inside it all
The sound of snow falling on snow.

Getting Off on the Right Foot

You must start right to end right
You can't rise any higher than the source
If you set your sights on matter
Spirit will be nowhere to be found

Starting with feet firmly planted on infinity
Insures success from the very outset
What is there to die
If nothing has ever been born
Always resting in action
Ideas shining brightly
Like a light in our Father's eye

It was a backwards thought
That has seemd to keep us trapped
For so long

Graduation day in the temple
Grasping the pebble's
Out of Master's hand

Now is time to leave
The temple grounds
To wander.

Watering the garden
and moving along.

July 7, 1986

I have traveled through a timeless universe of rippled skies, over seas of churning color to traverse the ranges and valleys in a single brushstroke. I have seen the faces in the wood and journeyed into the black hole of chain link. I have stormed the fort and stood in the shoes of many a dying soldier. I have run through the dark woods, dodging trees and shadows, chasing the glimpse of a fleeting thought. I have felt the ground move like the belly of a fat man laughing at two boys flying head over heels into manhood.

I followed my mind into my soul to find these unreal realities which were hiding behind prejudice, shame and fear in brilliant shades of peace, love and good will.

It's just me and you, babe

Every body else seems
To have something better to do tonight
So now it's just me and you babe
It's just me and you
Sitting on this pile of rocks
Got our sweaters pulled up tight
Cause its time to pull the pets in
Yeah its gonna be a three dog night
Sitting in front of the fire
Thinking overtime on how to lift you higher
But in the end it comes to this
It really doesnt matter how hard you try
In the end it will all be revealed
It will be seen that we never left the sky
This earthly dream to wonder why
We left the campfire to wander
Out of body experience
Is the only true experience
In body experience is a
Straight up lie

Other Worldly

Every day my eye awakens
Reflecting dreams lost slumber
Waking, fabricating time
My perceptions illuminate in the light of your space
Every visage ethereal grace
Penetrating my heart is in rhythm
A motion brought to my attention
We put ourselves in this place

Heaven knows all other worldly systems
Not to exclude your own
The static lining of your position
A permissive act of will

We are lost in this place
With all the potential for altered states
Do not get lost in yourself
We are other worldly

Every day is latent energy
For the stewards who are sleeping
Delicate, shimmering waves
My hands hold the sphere which ignites in space
Every second lost is gained
Bringing back around my intentions
Like clockwork I am reminded
We should take care of this place

here comes your 19th global internet meltdown

Here Comes Your 19th Global Internet Meltdown
(sung to the tune of "19th nervous breakdown--rolling stones)

You're just the kind of guy
people think of as strangely without care
off on the fringes never say a word
Unless you're spoken to
but now you over did it, it started coming out of your ears
And now you try but you just cant hide

you better post
don't look around
here it comes here it comes here it comes
here comes your 19th global internet meltdown

you travel in style
always smoke the kind
but something just werent never right in your mind
always had the best to eat and drink
but every night you slept alone
no one could comfort you
until the day you knocked down the doors
and threw out the sealameal
you better stop dont turn around
here it comes here it comes here it comes
here comes your 19th global internet meltdown

oh who's to blame that kids gone insane
nothing seems to stop it, he goes right around the clock
every time I turn around it just keeps on getting worse

what can still be left
certainly not your methedrine
it really stole your mind
and after you left in June
everyone said it was way past time
should a stuck with that short trip
of dimethyltryptamine
it would a put the hurt upon your mind
but now you're just in the way of what is fine

you better stop, put the pipe down
here it comes here it comes here it comes
here comes your 19th global internet meltdown
here comes your 19th global internet meltdown
here comes your 19th global internet meltdown

donde vive el amor? (where is my love)

The heart has its seasons
did you ever waken to the sound of street cats making love
and guess from their cries you were listening to a fight
well you know, hates just the last thing they're thinking of
they're only trying to make it through the night

i only want to hold you
i dont want to tie you down
or fence you between the lines i might have drawn

life is not about how to surivive in the storm but how to dance in the rain

there comes a point
in ones life
when you come to realize
who matters
who never did
who wont anymore
and who always will
so dont worry about the people from the past
theres a reason why they did not make it to you future
