Well I woke up in the Lion’s Mane
Kissing silhouettes of mountains dancing in the moonlight
Am I awake or is this a dream?
Or am I awaking into a state of wakefulness
Buried deep in my deepest dreaming sleep?

You can only guess what happened next

I swallowed an apple seed and gave birth to angel’s wings
Which lifted me to the top of this orange grove
Where I saw a man trying to count
All the oranges
All the trees
And all the leaves

Turns out this man was me
Losing count and starting over
Losing count and starting over
Chasing my own tale until I got dizzy
And fell asleep in the clouds

Well I woke up in the Lion’s Mane
On a single lane road deep within God’s Dreadlocks
When I gave my banana to the blind man
Only to realize who was really blind
My eyes couldn’t decide
My eyes couldn’t define

My eyes couldn’t see that this blind man was me

We then continued to a village of meeting rivers
Where Mother Earth washed me down and gave me a new birth
Where my sight was restored
And I could see all the gems hiding on the ocean’s floor
Well I dove in
Actually did a canon ball
And swam deeper and deeper
As things got clearer and clearer

And when I saw all of the sharks
I wasn’t afraid
For this time enshrined in my heart was the Almighty’s Name
I think my sanity has gone insane
I woke up in the Lion’s Mane
