Sometimes they see you just now they don't
Maybe this is a lucky day or a penny on the way home
Sit between the clouds for cover raindrops hide in the sea
Olly olly oxen free

The bliss of anonymity phonography of the heart
A well executed smile the Wind, Sand and the Stars
Words living in translation flowers under glass
Oh the future slipping past

Save me, slowly tame me
Don't apologize with philosophy
Come closer, tame me
Don't you recognize we are not enemies

Lamplighters and Counters kings and drunks and clowns
Saddle up the planet ride to the heart of town
Snakes do swallow elephants children all wear crowns
If I knew I knew you I never would have shot you down

Save me, slowly tame me
Don't apologize with philosophy
Come closer, tame me
Don't you recognize we are not enemies

Save me, slowly tame me
Don't apologize with philosophy
Come closer, tame me
Don't you recognize we are not enemies

    General CommentVery deep lyrics. Everyone can relate. We can all agree the line
    Olly olly oxen free
    is amazing because we all love acid.

    I don't know it's not meant to be studied it's meant to be what you get out and I got a lot of my last show.

    See you fuckers soon.

    General CommentThis is my favorite of the Jimmy era songs, at least lyrically.

    I think you know those of us whatever we are good at, we are given that from God. Any musician, no matter how hard they have worked on their craft knows that that magical second it isn't coming from you its on loan.

    I think we are blessed and we should strive to be nice always.

    Olly olly oxen free
