Lyrics
Ledger domain, wilderness pain
Sweet swimming fish-hook smile
Keep off the walk, listen to the children talk
I’ve loved you all the while

Earth, air, fire, water, mother, father, sons, and daughters
The politics of ecstacy are real
Can’t you feel them working through you?

The walls scream like a mad machine of poetry, disease and sex
The computer faces of all the men can’t program which muscles to flex

Spraying verbal fire flies, in the east there is a hum of light
An angel runs through the sudden light, Do you know what to do?

Drugs, sex, drunkeness, stand up there and give your best
The dark dreams of conquest
I new act joins my head’s procession
I create my own sword obsession
Cities of clouds, pirates of air

The grand highway is crowded with lovers and searchers and givers
So eager to please and forget the wilderness, wilderness, wilderness
