lyrics

I want to take the secret teaching and shrink them down in a can
Pass them out in the dying streets at the capitol of Broken Land
Teach the ways of mystery, drink Esoteric Cola
Maybe you could stick around for a history of Rock and Rolla,
I want to take the Galaxies and place them in your guitar
Channel all the kindred spirits, Jimmy Hendrix and Ravi Shankar
Because we all are instruments on an axis of a spinning sphere
and the roses of this revolution are blooming and it's getting near
There blooming and it's getting near

All the dreams that you dreamed last night are true, true, true, true
All the visions of the ocean and the sky are blue, blue, blue, blue
Hail the image of the sacred square and the beauty of the trinity
We will take this far, and the petals of the roses are set free

You know they take the nobel peace price and place it in a grave
Cover it in a soldiers ashes whose soul might never be saved
These blood right rituals are performed on sacred battle grounds
And all the kingsmen laugh as their prince is finally crowned
Are they doing their ancestors justice by conquering this land
the answers are inside of you, honey what do you command?
Take this pale of water and dump it over your head
Breathe in clarity of h20 breathe out everything you've been fed

(Repeat chorus)
Inside the tree of knowledge there lies a one eyed man
He exposes the puppet show and the rulers master plan
if you walk through the pillars climb the branches with your soul
You will travel to galaxies and places you have never known
(repeat chorus)
