Out in the desert in the last light of day
We searched for the footprints of Bobby Beausoleil
And there in the desert past the LA county line
Bobby buried the canister in the middle of the night

I'm not alright, I'm not alright
I'm really not up for the fight
Slow it down
Slow it down, down, down
Slow it down
Slow it down, down, down

The gears grind on as the van accelerates
Something's buried deep beneath this day that waits (?)

I'm not alright, I'm not alright
I'm really not up for the fight
Slow it down
Slow it down, down, down
Slow it down
Slow it down, down, down

    General Commenti think that question mark line really goes like this:
    "some things buried deep need to stay that way"

    this album is too legit to quit.

    General CommentBobby Beausoleil was an American murderer (link: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… ), who composed and recorded the soundtrack to the movie Lucifer Rising, after which the song "Lucifer Rising" (in the same album) is named.
