Standing on an Island
Colours to-and-fro
Staring at my leather hands
Pigeons start to go-go
Hold my baby tightly
While the bright lights gleam
Her mind starts to slip-slip
A million BLADES of light green

I, I, I, I
Glide, Glide, Glide
Baby you my boat

    General CommentGabriel mentions that this song is about baseball on the Live at Third Man Records album. Based on the lyrics and the title I figure it's a reference to the time Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter while tripping on LSD in 1970.
