"Bali Eyes" as written by Martyn Lenoble, Peter Distefano, Stephen Perkins and Perry Farrell....
Ate a mushroom turned into Bali
Didn't look it just jumped down my throat
I was starting to die until I
Took a trip to Bali
Their eyes are god
In a glass full of jelly
Bali in my eyes
My skin turned the color of the earth
I felt like a tree
People asked my name the next day
They remembered who I was
I took off my shoes
And my feet they took root
I've got Bali in my eyes
When I opened up my eyes first thing
Early light in Bali
What a day it's gonna be I think
It looks good already
So hold me close before
All the doors start knocking!
Bali in my eyes...

    General Commenti've always loved this song and listened to it a lot before i went to bali. out there mushroom shakes can be bought...the balinese are a very sociable nation, and they do ask who you are, where you are from etc...and will spot you the next time they see you. granted they ususally have something to sell, but very friendly and charming with it

    re: doors knocking - can only imagine he's staying at a place with a few other people and wants a quick root off his missus before he gets woken up to go for an early morning surf? there always seems to be lots of people - tourists and locals in bali

    eyes are god - in a glass full of jelly - dunno. is he saying they have beautifull kindness in their eyes? maybe the mushroom was taking effect then

    fantastic song - the stipped down accoustic feel and gentle wailing at the beginning too reminds me of balinese musicians
