Wind, she threatens to blow down my door,
She screams at me and calls me a whore.
Lightning, she crashes through my windows...
And Rain, she promises to tear my house to the ground,
Am I the only one this cloud hangs around.
Windy, flashing rainstorm, she runs through my head,
With whistles and whispers of things you said.
Noises of destruction, flashing hallucinations...faces placed in clouds.
I'm so alone, not even spirits dwell in this house.
God is telling me, 'Face your dellusions, wash away your fears....
Then love and serenity will appear.'
But if I get scared and run...oh this rainstorm, she will follow,
I hide under a tree...and she will strike at my soul.
If I wander in water, she'll electrify my mind.
But if I took a second to sense her beauty, it would shock my heart.
Beautiful moments have passed me by,
Moments...where I could soar above all others in flight.
Hair, whipping in the wind...forgetting my sins,
Misery and fears fly away from within.
My outlook was faded...a dream state of mind,
"Shine on you crazy Diamond, shine"*
This is a piece of eterenally, happy space,
Now I'm floating off to some other place....
A wonderful, unknown dimension, this is where I come from.
It is my homeland,
Here is where I'm comfortable and life hasn't destroyed who I am.
I know this is where I'll go to sleep,
That sweet slumber when you finally feel free.
And then I will forever, fly at last.
Everything is beautiful, the clouds and trees and perfect bliss.
I kiss the gods and bow to the goddesses...for they are the true teachers and warriors through life and death.
Little dots scattered like broken shells in the sand,
Lucky four leaved clover won me the prince of all men.
Handprints...they turn to stone and exist forever.
Snow...fall on me and let me run through my fields of dreams.....
Coca leaves and dancing Mushrooms...
Poppy seeds and fields of Weed.
LSD that grows on trees and oranges injected with eXstasy.
Lemon trees watered with PCP and orchards of bags filled with Speed.........and it's only me.
Oh and Jim....he is singing softly, somewhere in the background.
Deep in the trees and amongst the clouds...
Soft, but still loud enough to fill my surrondings....
As he serenades me...
"Into this world were born, into this house were thrown, Riders on the storm, Riders on the storm." *
And we ride alone.....
He whispers from below.
Drifting lyrics, words that take your mind and give it a pair of wings....
Jumping is flying and you don't feel any pain.
Ya, she rides me and she rides against the wind,
Forcing me down, making me binge.
She carries me along, pushing me to score...
Now she's gone and thrown me off the edge of my hidden balcony, oh well, at least it's one thing I've never felt before.
Falling past my floating field of dreams.....I scream and plead, what have you done, this isn't what I believed would happen to me....
And where, oh where is my love that is sweet.
She assures me he is here with us, she assures me...he always will be. But I can't leave without tasting his skin one more time,
or catching that smile he flashes on by.
No...I won't leave here unless he'll follow me.
But you see I'm falling and his face is fading.....
Look at all these trips I had planned, Things I wanted to do, The ways I wanted to be,
Places I've never been and things I forgot I'd seen.
What have I really done, where is my mark upon this land ?
I've seen my life as a grain of sand.
She assures me I will be happy and I can be brave,
She doesn't assure me, my soul can be saved.
Even if she said...'Your sins I erase'
Could I really believe it here, here in this place,
With all this lost scenery flying past my face.
God, my life has been a waste.
So here I dwell in the realm of the unknown,
With nowhere to go and no place to call home.
Now...there is not a thing I fear, except my own demons and sometimes feeling bored,
So everyday..she takes me out and she rides with me on the storm.
As I whisper from below.....At least I don't have to ride alone.
