This song is about an old friend who did the
Syd Barrett thing some years ago.
He went off of the track and never came back.





The Pink Robots took you
You never came back
Travel Agent sold you a ten pack
A one way ticket to instant zen, yeah

Lasa Sa Daga
Twenty five One hundreds

Lost in the blue mists across your fault line
Tanglebrain madness and black sunshine
Mind detergent and green domes
Lysergic cupcakes, you'll never come home

Electric Kool Aide, see through windowpanes
Brown bombers, birdhead, intensely insane
Yellow sunshine daydreams, candy flipping

Lost in pink blotters
Twenty five One hundreds

Lost in the orange haze
Lost in the Purple haze
Lost in the haze
Twenty five One hundreds

The orange Micro... Mr. Natural
is going through your head, yeah

Oh the peace tablets, snowmen, and grey shields
Crystal tea, Sacrament, Strawberry fields
White dust, black star, Heavenly blue

Purple ozaline
Twenty five One hundreds

Orange wedges, and Pink owsley
Mellow Yellow, and Grape parfait
Blue vials, Blue stars, purple pyramid

Electric Kool Aide
Twenty five One hundreds

The pink witches took you, You never came back
Travel agent sold you a ten pack
A one way ticket to the blue moons

Instant zen, yeah
Twenty five One hundreds

You'll never come back
You went off the track
You'll never come back

Twenty five One hundreds





Drums are one continual Loop.

Yeah, it's loud, but then again so is the subject matter. Too many people leave and never come back on these trips. It's about time somebody said it.

Definite rocker, good production, and honest rock vocals Matt. Thanks for sharing it.

Be well an be cool,

It has a dash of Lenny Kravitz in its vibe. I like the triplets and that guitar tone. Nice stuff.

I'm with Art on the Lenny vibe. It's a great song Matt. But now, I wish the vocals were a little more up front in the mix...

Love that fuzz tone on the bass. Niiiiice! And yes, the triple guitar threat is sweeeeeet!

But man is this a catchy tune!

Yes a Lenny vibe indeed, nice energy, the mix is a bit loud so thanks for the warning... but that also adds to the overall feel of the tune. I agree with jd "catchy" smiley

Ed, you're right... not too many people de-glorify the taking of LSD. I couldn't write a pro drug song if I wanted... it's not my way.

Lenny? Lenny???

The joke in my band is that this sounds sort of Lenny... it's a joke because Lenny always sounds like somebody else. We came down to figuring it's a lot to do with that guitar riff and the bass riff combo.

So answer me this question... Are you gonna go my way? LOL! It's alright. I'm cool with it.

Jules, y'know what? On my computer the vocals stand out more. It seems that uploading to iComp, something changed a tad. Glad ya like the bass though!

Thanks for the comments all.

That-there's some fine, hard-rockin' goodness. The lyrics, though tragic, are inspired. Excellent work!

I for one will tell you there were stories of acid helping people. (I can't say who) This would pertain to those who got in, did some guitar playing, writing and painting, a little deep thinking... and then got off that bus. (Or so I've heard.)

This is an incredible song. I mean incredible. Lycirs, vox and that whole sonic blast. Not to mention the ending.

@Bachthoven: The lyrics were both a joy and a pain to come up with. I was lucky to find an encyclopedia of pseudonym names for the substance. I'll be checking your songs out soon as well.
