My Wilderness Years

 

That mystical place where the elephants die …

That place – of memories

Looks like a place in Florida where the melaleuca trees grow

Bones growing out of the earth

Bleached by the Southern sun

The homeless guy who sleeps in the alley screams to the top of his lungs

You couldn’t live a minute in my world

But I could live a lifetime in yours

 

Chorus

And I said - can I help you?

And he said – calm your fears

I’m just passing through

My wilderness years

 

He lives on the corner

I don’t know where he goes when the blizzards come

I don’t know where he sleeps when it’s raining

He just seems to walk around in paradise

Then he says – you may think that when I say I

That I mean me

When I say I, I don’t mean me

Me is me, and I am I

 

Chorus

 

Perception is everything

Intelligence is a matter of opinion

Beauty is physical fitness

Opinions simply need a witness

The free speech cops have made it tough for me to speak my mind

I’m not into anything

I’m into everything

 

Chorus

 

Repeat chorus – out
