about

Remembering my years of "higher learning"

lyrics

Visions of the emerald beyond
Ram Dass and Timothy
Vanishing for hours on end
Long nights at Yogi's

The cliffs at Peabody's
The Cliff on main street
The bypass Pitstop
The burger doodle to eat

We tried to pull stars from the sky
We thought we could do it
The left side of my head shrunk that night
I remember Kris knew it
I remember Kris knew it

Doritoes in the dorm
The picking down at the pool
Getting busted by Mr West
After that I knew he was cool

The trips to bootlegger's
The parties out at the ranch
My Falcon, the brother's Birdmobile
Up and down Thomas Branch

We tried to pull stars from the sky
We thought we could do it
The left side of my head shrunk that night
I remember Kris knew it
I remember Kris knew it

Knowing it all would end someday
We naturally savored
Pushing the envelope of luck
I guess we were favored

I dreamed that God had spoke to me
He wrote a message in the sky
It changed my life, that single dream
My mortality clarified

We tried to pull stars from the sky
We thought we could do it
The left side of my head shrunk that night
I remember Kris knew it
I remember Kris knew it
