"Ain't Goin To Goa" as written by and Piers Marsh Robert Spragg....
I believe I'm gonna
Shut down my chakras, shift Shiva offa my shelf
Take down my tie dyes, my Tibetan bells
Cool down my karma with a can of O.P.T.
Ain't no call for Casteneda in my frontline library.

There's one thing I know, Lord above,
I ain't gonna go,
I ain't goin' to Goa, Ain't goin' to Goa now
Ain't goin' to Goa, Ain't gonna Goa now.

Ain't dancin' trance, no thanx, no chance to tranquilize me.
Ain't sippin' no smart bar drinks, you, that don't satisfy me.
Dosing up my dharma, with a drop of gasoline,
I ain't down with Mr. McKenna, tantric mantra talkin' don't move me.

I don't need no freaky, deeky, fractal geometry, crystal silicon chip.
I ain't walking on lay lines, reading no High Times put me on another bad trip.
Timothy Leary, just check out this theory,
He sold acid for the F.B.I.
Well, he ain't no website wonder, the guru just went under,
You can keep your California Sunshine.

'Cause the righteous truth is, there ain't nothing worse than
Some fool lying on some Third World beach wearing
Spandex, psychedelic trousers, smoking damn dope
Pretending he gettin' consciousness expansion. I want
Consciousness expansion, I go to my local tabernacle
An' I sing with the brothers and sisters

    General CommentThis song has an anti-hippie message. The Island of Goa is like, "hippie Mecca" and the singer is not down with a lot of spiritual mumbo-jumbo. It seems to be a little anti-drug, but I think A3 is just more about modern things, and thus synthetic drugs instead of cannabis.

    Basically, Larry Love was attached to "new age" spiritual stuff, but now he's joined the First Presleyterian Church of Elvis the Divine (UK) under The Very Reverend Dr. D. Wayne Love.

    That whole process is about stripping yourself of belongings, and rebuilding yourself in a world of country/acid house/gospel/blues revelry. Live music and whiskey replace Carlos Castaneda and chakras.
