I took road and said goodbye
Friends go one way I went mine
I got lost then very quickly
Started shaking feeling sickly

In the lion lair
In the lion lair
Watch your own self and take care
I am outside, almost one with, all the life in the lion lair

All alone and all around
Canyon clept above the ground
There was treeless flat around me
And no evil came and found me

In the lion lair
In the lion lair
Watch your own self and take care
I am outside, almost one with, all the life in the lion lair

Stars came out in midday burning
Earth grumbled stones were churning
Colors red were rocks and sky
And powered glint infused the eye
Had himself in no time at all
Hand on shaft and gripped his ball
Wished your mouth would come down on it
Feel your lips sink warm upon it

In the lion lair
In the lion lair
Watch your own self and take care
I am outside, almost one with, all the life in the lion lair

Beast and bird they called me kin
Bathed me and they tucked me in
Laid down on the forest ground
Stars above they shon on down

In the lion lair
In the lion lair
Watch your own self and take care
I am outside, almost one with, all the life in the lion lair

In the lion lair
In the lion lair
Watch your own self and take care
I am outside, almost one with, all the life in the lion lair

    General CommentWow, first comment! This is my favorite BBB tune. The whole thing is epic. A journey, a choice to enter the treacherous wilderness alone, the Lion Lair. Not quite at home with nature in her raw form, but striving to be "one with all life". Some kind of red canyon desert landscape, though exposed on treeless canyon-top (or in valley still protected by canyon), feels safe from whatever evil he's running from. Night full of stars, followed by burning day, rapid sunlight glimmers, passage of time. Vision quest, acid trip? Gripped in ecstasy, masturbates, imagining a woman he knows (nature herself?) giving him blow job. Finally, feels that the creatures of the wild are welcoming him, he washes off and goes to sleep on some forest floor.
    Overall: The solo human journey through life "Watch your own self", even solo sex, on a quest for "oneness with all life". Have a lot more thoughts on this, would love to first hear other takes on it.
