"Bones of Man" as written by and Chad Vangaalen....
It was a beautiful night, yeah the moon was climbing out of the mountains.
And from the city in the ground came the sound of a million lights.
We were headed to the center of our brain when they came a'knocking.
They said we've seen you before, and we really like all of the stories.

Ooh this world of wonder, we'll leave the bones of man, we never wanted to leave you. Ooh this world of wonder, we'll leave the bones of man, we never wanted to leave.

When it touched my hand, I felt my mind open up like a valley.
Then from a crack in the ground came the sound of a million legs.
There was a silent flash before the earth started closing up on itself.
I felt at peace and alive even though the ship was going down.

Ooh this world of wonder, we'll leave the bones of man, we never wanted to leave you. Ooh this world of wonder, we'll leave the bones of man, we never wanted to leave you.

    General CommentAside from the obvious that the world is exploding and he feels at peace even though the ship is goin' down, does anyone know if there is a deeper meaning?

    General Commenthah, I actually thought he sang "even tho this shit was going down". anyway "the city in the ground" which he is talking about is also mentioned in blood machine.

    General CommentBeautifully psychedelic. Reminds me of the type of feeling one has under the influence of LSD. "My mind opened up like a valley" and "the sound of a million lights", are very much like the ramblings of a head feeling at peace with the ugly world. Sure terrible shit happens, but it's all worth it.
