So you want to go into your mind
What do you think you’re gonna find?
Something to help, something you can use?
Something to hold onto, something to abuse?

What do we see when our dreams all fade away?

So now we’re ready, we’re really ready to rock and roll
I can feel it, feel it, feel it in my soul
Where I come from Sol is the sun
Where I come from sole means one

What do we see when our dreams all fade away?

We journey to the stars, and our thoughts go out to mars
Still I’m praying with my guitar
So you people stare straight ahead
And you’ll believe every word they’ve said

The path it dips, it slips, it trips in many ways
Vanishing, vanishing gone …in the purple haze
And all the while, we’re in the land of the free
America, America …anarchy

What do we see when our dreams all fade away

Out there beyond the sun
Where all of the angels and the comets run
I know a man who can get things done
So you people stare straight ahead
And you’ll believe every word I’ve said

Gather ’round close and I’ll tell you some lies
Pull a cat from my hat …and an alibi
I’ll roll you in clover and throw sand in your eyes
Over and over, we’ll laugh til we cry.
