Good sense, innocence, cripplin' mankind
Dead kings, many things I can't define
Occasions, persuasions clutter your mind
Incense and peppermints, the color of time.

Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothing to lose.

Incense and peppermints, meaningless nouns
Turn on, turn in, turn your eyes around.

Look at yourself, look at yourself, yeah, yeah
Look at yourself, look at yourself, yeah, yeah, yeah!

To divide this cockeyed world in two
Throw your pride to one side, it's the least you can do.
Beatniks and politics, nothing is new
A yardstick for lunatics, one point of view

Who care what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothin' to lose.

Good sense, innocence, cripplin' mankind
Dead kings, many things I can't define.
Occasion, persuassions clutter your mind
Incense and peppermints, the color of time.

Who cares what games we choose?
Little to win, but nothin' to lose.

Incense and peppermints
Incense and peppermints

    I got these lyrics entirely wrong! I love the harmony, the hooks and the harmonics but I was way off with the lyrics! Gotta love the song, though.

    I've always loved this song on many levels. Too bad we don't hear such nuanced and meaningful lyrics in today's mainstream music.

    I don't do those kinds of drugs anymore. It's rather like lewis carroll poetry (eg. The walrus and the carpenter: and this was odd because you know they hadn't any feet).
