OLD TIM LEARY
HAD HIMSELF A THEORY
TOLD US ALL HOW GREAT IT COULD BE
NO MORE FENCES
STIFLING YOUR SENSES
KEEPIN' OUT THE SCENERY
NEW WORLD ORDER'S
BREAKIN' DOWN THE BORDERS
AIN'T GONNA BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE
'CAUSE EVERYTHING LOOKS DIFFERENT
WHEN YOU'RE FREE

SEE FAITH FALTER
TRIPPIN' AT THE ALTAR
NAKED AS THE DAY SHE WAS BORN
FREE FROM CLATTER
MIND IS MERELY MATTER
WHERE'S IT GONNA GO WHEN WE'RE GONE?
JUST LET GO NOW
FALL INTO THE FLOW NOW
EVERYTHING EVENTUALLY
AND EVERYTHING LOOKS DIFFERENT
WHEN YOU'RE FREE

IT IS IN NATURE THAT WE TRUST
RISING FROM THE DUST
BLOWING IN THE WIND
WINTERSPRING AND SUMMERFALL
MOVING TO A COMMON CALL
ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL
AND SO WE GO

RUNNING WITH THE RESTLESS HERDS
TRYIN' TO PUT IT ALL IN WORDS
DEDICATED TO THE BIRDS
OF AMERICA

SEE JACK HORNER
CUTTING EVERY CORNER
DIDN'T WANT A PIECE OF THE PIE
SAID SERVE NO NATION'S
RULES OR REGULATIONS
AND PAY AS YOU BUY
NOW HE'S WEARY
MORE INCLINED TO QUERY
WHAT THE PRICE OF FREEDOM SHOULD BE
AND EVERYTHING LOOKS DIFFERENT
WHEN YOUR FREE

IT IS EXPERIENCE WE SEEK
TURN THE OTHER CHEEK
DEATH DEFYING KIND
BROKE MY HEART IN '68
LEFT IT AT THE STARTING GATE
HOPING TO RECUPERATE
ALONG THE WAY

RUNNING WITH THE RESTLESS HERDS
TRYIN' TO PUT IT ALL IN WORDS
DEDICATED TO THE BIRDS
OF AMERICA

DO YOUR DUTY
LIVE A LIFE OF BEAUTY
BUILD A WORLD THAT ECHOS YOUR DREAMS
LET LOVE LIGHT IT
EVERYONE'S INVITED
TO BE A PART OF A TEAM
RACE, CLASS, SPECIE
AGE, RELIGION, HE/SHE
DON'T MAKE NO DIFFERENCE TO ME
'CAUSE EVERYTHING LOOKS DIFFERENT
EVERYTHING LOOKS DIFFERENT

TWILIGHT OF AQUARIUS
SHINE A LITTLE LIGHT ON US
LIVING FOR THE LAUGHTER BIRDS
SINGING FROM THE RAFTER BIRDS
NOW AND EVER AFTER BIRDS
OF AMERICA

Timothy Leary, changing values, 1968, we who lived through it all learned to survive like birds, living off of the land and making our beds over everyone's heads.
