WONDERING WHERE THE LIONS ARE


sun's up • uhuh : looks okay
the world survives into another day
and I'm thinking about eternity
some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

had another dream about lions at the door
they weren't half as frightening as they were before
but I'm thinking about eternity
and some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

walls • windows • trees : waves coming through
you be in me and I'll be in you
together in eternity
some kind of ecstacy got a hold on me

up among the firs where it smells so sweet 
or down in the valley where the river used to be
I got my mind on eternity
and some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

... and I'm wondering where the lions are ...

huge orange flying boat rises off the lake
thousand year old petroglyphs doing a double take
pointing a finger at eternity
and I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy

young men marching • helmets shining in the sun
polished and precise like the brain behind the gun should be
got me thinking about eternity
and some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

... and I'm wondering where the lions are ...

freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay
one of these days we're going to sail away
going to sail into eternity
and some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

... and I'm wondering where the lions are ...
