"Red Berries" as written by and Stone/stone....
I ate the red berries
And fell into the pond
I found myself in a dream
Where all my worries were gone

So I swam up to the top
And strolled up into a land
If people aren't who they're not
I thought wouldn't that be grand?
Wouldn't that be grand?

Birds don't whistle, they just sing
Birds don't whistle, they just sing
Things just start as they sing
Birds don't whistle, they just sing

They sung this song

I ate the red berries
The ones you told to leave alone
On the devil's shoulder I leaned
As I fell through the clouds like a storm

So I climbed up to the top
And jumped off into a land
If people aren't who they're not
I thought wouldn't that be grand?
Wouldn't that be grand?

Birds don't whistle, they just sing
Birds don't whistle, they just sing
Things just start as they sing
Birds don't whistle, they just sing

They sung this song

    Song MeaningAngus said? in an interview that Julia gave him poisonous red berries that made him hallucinate when they were younger. I'm assuming the song is about that.

    General CommentI think its about loosing yourself in drugs that transport your mind to a magical land when you want to escape the struggles of the real word. and while although this can be a pleasant and fun relief, it is dangerous (on the devils shoulder i leaned)
