Doors locked (doors locked)
Blinds pulled (blinds pulled)
Lights low (lights low)
Flames high (flames high)

My body (my body)
My body

My body (my body)
My body

My body
Is walking in space
My soul is in orbit
With God face to face

Floating, flipping
Flying, tripping

Tripping from Pottsville to Mainline
Tripping from Mainline to Moonville

(Tripping from "Pot"sville to Starlight
Tripping from Starlight to Moonville)

On a rocket to
The Fourth Dimension
Total self awareness
The intention

My mind is as clear as country air
I feel my flesh, all colors mesh

Red black
Blue brown
Yellow crimson
Green orange
Purple pink
Violet white
White white
White white
White white

All the clouds are cumuloft
Walking in space
Oh my God your skin is soft
I love your face

How dare they try to end this beauty?
How dare they try to end this beauty?

To keep us under foot
They bury us in soot
Pretending it's a chore
To ship us off to war

In this dive
We rediscover sensation
In this dive
We rediscover sensation

Walking in space
We find the purpose of peace
The beauty of life
You can no longer hide

Our eyes are open
Our eyes are open
Our eyes are open
Our eyes are open
Wide wide wide!

    General Commentthe movie is awful and completely bastardizes the point and purpose of the musical. the writers still insist there is no film version of hair.

    General CommentThis song is clearly about tripping on hallucinogens. And if you havent done any acid or shrooms and you disagree, too bad, you're wrong :) Try it out and see for yourself. Peace

    General CommentSounds like someone stepped on an anti-personnel mine, but that interpretation is heavily influenced by it's placement in the excellent movie.

    My OpinionAgree completely with MRSMELOY! The only way to see and understand HAIR is to see the stage version, which reflects what the USA was going through in the 1960's. The original Broadway version was intense, the most recent Broadway version was true to the subject matter which covered a variety of topics including the war, pollution, racial prejudice, homosexuality, drugs, the draft. Monumental in my mind. I was drafted, brainwashed and went to Vietnam. When I got back, HAIR opened my eyes wide, wide, wide.
