Oo-oo-oo-oo oo-oo, it's all right
My time's comin’ but it's not tonight

Get out the tents and set up the floods
Bring in the trucks and make some more mud
Then get the hell out of my way 'cause I'm gonna get wasted
As magic gasses fill the air
It's bad for your health but I don't care
This'll all be gone tomorrow but we'll still be able to taste it
The golden chord is frayed, what was that song they played
Our steed lies melting in the sun
They flooded the parking lot, our tent begins to rot
And I'm in love with everyone

I know everything will be alright
My time's comin' but it's not tonight
So let's keep going 'til the morning light if it's free I'll take it
I know everything will come back 'round
Five white horses on an ocean of sound
Until it all comes crashing down like the walls of Jericho

Stop, children, what's that sound
Another bunch of phreaks just rolled into town
In a broken down bus with a crew that's fallin' to pieces
You got to get up, stand up, walk a straight line
Been drunk for three days but you're doin' fine
Just a little bit out of your mind but you're takin' it easy
All you really need is one more hour of sleep so you
Lay your head upon the floor
Just a little sleep before it gets too deep
You wake up come back for more

I know everything will be alright
My time's comin' but it's not tonight
So let's keep going ‘til the morning light if it's free I'll take it
I know everything will come back 'round
Five white horses on an ocean of sound
Until it all comes crashing down yes I know we can
Make it to the other side
Everything is blowin' my mind
The man on the magic tricycle would like to take you for a ride

    General CommentDude, anna, what are you talking about? This song is about taking drugs, and having fun camping, or at a music festival... just picture woodstock, or the modern day concerts like langerado or bonaroo

    General Commentoh and to the writer, its Freaks not phreaks.. as referring to Hippies and the magic bus trip so famous in the era

    General CommentIt is correctly written at phreaks.. referring to Phish. Phreaks were almost always partaking in exactly what this song describes at said music festivals/Phish shows.
