"Big Sur" as written by Oliver Robert Main, Matthew Peter George Bowman, David James Best, James David Naylor and Ryan Andrew Wilson....
Sittin' down with warm glow woodstove and kerosene
Peace you're lookin' for
Peace you'll find
In the tanglement cliff sides and crashin' down
Of Big Sur
Of Big Sur

Rapturous ring of silence, Pacific fury
Crashing on the rocks
Sea shroud towers
The innocence of health and stillness in the wild
Of Big Sur
Of Big Sur

This whole surface of the world
As we know it know
Will be covered with the silt of a billion years in time

I see as much as doors will allow
A long way from
The Beat Generation
Here comes the nightly mark to his nightly death
In Big Sur
In Big Sur

The best thing to do is not be false
Rocks of the valley
Have left no hall of complaints
I'm just a sick clown, and so is everybody else
In Big Sur
In Big Sur
