No one knows where the ladder goes
You can only lose what you love the most
You're not alone in anything
You're not unique and dying
It feels strange to every now and then
Fall asleep reading science fiction
I want to fly in your silver ship
Let Jesus hang and Buddha sit
It's on now
The day's are long now
The ups and the sundowns
And the twisted mind
If I got to go first
I'll do it on my terms
I'm tired of traitors
Always changing sides
They were friends of mine
Don't hang around once the promise breaks
You'll be there when the next one's made
Kiss the feet of a charlaton
Some imagine freedom
All the rest is predictable
You can say you're the first to know
Bought a mantra to concentrate
Car alarm or hissing snake
Gotta know now
How it's gonna turn out
You gotta calm down
Or I'll lose my place
You gotta get to the center
Gotta get to the concert
Run off with the dancer
Gonna celebrate
We'll welcome new age
Covered in warrior paint
Lights from the jungle to the sky
See now a star's born
Looks just like a blood orange
Don't it just make you want to cry?
Precious friend of mine
Will I know when it's finally done?
This whole life's a hallucination
You're not alone in anything
You're not alone in trying to be
