It was all about living
And the good things of the earth
It was all about loving
This crazy accident of birth
It was all about traveling
And hearing those shoe-bells ring
It was all about dancing
And hearing the fat man sing

And it's like a bad trip in hell
Stranded and broke
Twenty years in this cell
It's like a life up in smoke

Once I sought visions
With a sweet gypsy tribe
It was about feeling
The pulse of a vibe
And sure I smoked kind bud
And I did windowpane
And I soaked up the beauty
Of the warm summer rain

And it's like a bad trip in hell
Stranded and broke
Twenty years in this cell
It's like a life up in smoke

I slept in the shadows
Of Golden Gate Park
Watched the moon shine
Felt the breeze in the dark
The whole world was mine
But I lived for a song
Now I'm stuck in this cell
And all the good days are gone

And it's like a bad trip in hell
Stranded and broke
Twenty years in this cell
It's like a life up in smoke
