I've been called the boy who cried wolf
Thinking it was love when it was just my glass half full
I jumped in some nearly empty pool
Hung around in dry fountains until I felt your pull
You washed this stinging from my hands
And I danced into your trance in the burning of autumn sand
Baby, I swear I'm on the path
Babe, I swear I'm on the path

I drove to the coast with my two favorite women
And then I prayed in tuxedo pants, I waited for my baptism
Held a conch shell up and listened
And I stared into his cup until I felt my prison shifting
Babe, I finally understand
Babe, I finally understand

Best friends and whip shine (?) reserve
She said, Go on out west.
You're running with the blizzard.
She held the hearse cords in her hand.
Like a pyramid in the promised land

Babe, I swear I understand.
Babe, I finally understand.
Babe, I finally understand.
Babe, I finally understand.

    I've been called the boy who cried wolf,
    thinking it was love when it was just my glass half full.
    I jumped in some nearly empty pools,
    and hung around in dry fountains until I felt your pull.
    You washed the stigma from my hand.
    And I danced into a trance in the burning Nevada sand.
    Babe, I swear I'm on a path.

    I drove to the coast with my favorite women.
    And in my faded tuxedo pants I waded for my baptism.
    I picked a conch shell up and listened,
    and I stared down into its cup until I felt my prism shifting.
    Babe, I finally understand.

    My best friend is a witch and a wizard.
    She said, "Go on head out west,
    go running with the lizard."
    I touched the rose quartz in her hand
    and it felt like a pyramid in the promised land.
    Babe, I finally understand.
    Go.
