A remedy is what I'm seeking

Come away to something better

Sometimes a Jimi Thing

Slides my way and keeps me

Swinging I'd like to show you what's inside,

I shouldn't care if you do or don't like it

Brother chaos rule all about

Sometimes I walk there

Well yes, God knows, sometimes I take a bus there

Shouldn't care

I shouldn't care

 

A

bereaved as I'm feeling

 

 

BACK TO INTRO

 

2. The day is gone

I'm on my back

Staring up at the celing

I take a drink sit back relax

Smoke my mind make me feel better for a small time

What I want is what I've GOT NOT

And what I need is all around me

Reaching searching never stop

Swinging I'd like to show you what's inside,
