"Off of Wonderland" as written by and Jackson Browne....
IT WAS EASY FOR ME
UP SO HIGH IN MY TREE
LIVING OFF OF WONDERLAND
LIVING WITH AN UNKNOWN BAND
WAITING THERE FOR EVERYMAN

THERE WAS CHANGE IN THE AIR
IT WAS LOVE EVERYWHERE
LIVING OFF OF WONDERLAND
ANKLE DEEP IN CONTRABAND
WORKING ON A LIFE UNPLANNED

DIDN'T WE BELIEVE IN LOVE?
DIDN'T WE BELIEVE IN GIVING IT AWAY?
THAT DIDN'T REALLY LEAVE US WITH THE LOVE
TO FIND OUR WAY
AFTER RFK AND MARTIN LUTHER KING

DO YOU FEEL IT TODAY?
LOVE IS STILL ON THE WAY
COMING OVER WONDERLAND
THE WORLD IS IN YOUR OPEN HAND
ONCE AGAIN IT'S AT YOUR COMMAND

DIDN'T WE BELIEVE IN LOVE?
DIDN'T WE BELIEVE THAT LOVE WOULD CARRY ON?
WOULDN'T WE RECEIVE ENOUGH
IF WE COULD JUST BELIEVE IN ONE ANOTHER
AS MUCH AS WE BELIEVED IN JOHN

    General CommentGeography 101, if you know LA at all, you will recognize Off of Wonderland is about the Laurel Canyon days. The lyrics refer to an innocent time. Waiting for the realization of Everyman. It was during the bliss of really productive songwriting and Free Love. The innocence and hope and too much fun, before the Viet Nam war and the Tate LaBianca murders. The curtain ripped open, and the residents of the winding roads up those canyon roads suddenly locked their doors at night, and stayed alert.

    But for awhile it was fun and cool.
