"Alcan Road" as written by and Michael Melchiondo Aaron Freeman....
Open the gate to the red land
Alcan road, by the turquoise lake
Starry skies, a mushroom cloud
Folding waves, in a foamy tide

Washing in beds, of opal shells
white gulls cry, for you and I
butterflies, float away
drift over pools, of salt and clay

mountain man, frosted child
eagles cry, puppets of god
strung like time, molded in form
trees bend back, and trails distort

it leads to the land, of Alcan Road
the turquoise lake, and starry skies
mushroom clouds, folding waves
foamy tides, of salt and brine

    General Commentmy friends was on mushrooms listening to ween and said when listenin to this song and wondering what the lyrics were about, and listening to the sort of smooth tune and he said he could really only imagin this being a journey through the gate's onto alcan road which is the road that leads to hell, he went on about it for ages but that's the idea simplified

    General CommentThis song simply seems to describe the Alcan Highway (Alaska-Canadian highway), which does pass near Turquoise Lake.
