VERSE
1 A:
long haired man came to my door Wearing
roman sandles carrying, a golden sword Said
come with me and, I'll take you higher We.
soared out of the atmosphere On
his magic carpet that he let me steer He
said take the ring son, and, I'll let you fly her We.
escalated through a thick of clouds And
our only thought was not coming down Towards
the amber glow I started to feel the fire It.
was a unicorn with a neon arm Wearing
a belted saddle that was slightly worn And
I pulled my mystic rug right up beside her I.
sat down on a floatin stool She
knealt her head and produced a jewel I
smiled and asked If, I could ride her CHORUS.
And:
I saw the lighthouse keeper His.
hollow eyes that pierced my soul He
said that I'm just a desperate seeker Searching
for what I did not know VERSE.
2 On:
Pegasus I was flying free A
careless loss of a purple sea When
I came upon a lonesome fortune teller She.
gazed into a crystal ball And
I saw that giant gavel fall And
she asked if I could be her pallbearer I.
heard that gypsy prophesize Of
the tearing flesh and the mothers' cry And
the crimson flow of blood that would run forever We.
stood before the Kings and Queens And
a hooded man with a guillotine And
prepared to meet the eternal tax collector Then.
a dying man with an aristocrat On
his balcony with a welcome mat And
he laughed and drank all the wine from his cellar REPEAT.
CHORUS GUITAR, SOLO 'TIL END OF SONG
