The Amboy Dukes – Journey To The Center Of The Mind lyrics

Leave your cares behind
Come with us and find
The pleasures of a journey to the center of the mind

Come along if you care
Come along if you dare
Take a ride to the land inside of your mind
Beyond the seas of thought
Beyond the realm of what
Across the streams of hopes and dreams
Where things are really not

But please realize
Youll probably be surprised
For it's the land unknown to man
Where fantasy is fact
So if you can, please understand
You might not come back


How happy life could be
If all of mankind
Would take the time to journey to the center of the mind
Would take the time to journey to the center of the mind
Center of the mind

    Journey to the Center of the Mind is looking inside of your mind and analyzing your reality using LSD. It tells you that you can become more in tune with what is inside of your mind than you would normally be. It advises that you may find possibilities that can become reality and warns you that you possibly may experience a major problem once there (I assume a weak mind) with the lyrics "you might not come back". It then advises that you may "see how happy life could be if all of mankind would take the time to journey to the center of the mind," and the assurance that "we'll take the time to journey to the center of the mind."

    I found that following this advice was a very pleasant and life changing (for the better) experience just as the Amboy Dukes said that it could be.
