Regurgitated Hippie Song

25 Feb 1999

In a maze of whirling color
I caught a glimpse of a face I used to know
It smiled at me
And I turned because I wanted it to go away
I saw the life
Of a boy searching for peace and love
He left his home
His mother but his home did not leave him

Throw out peaceloveharmony
And everyone's equality
Shinyhappypeaceful feeling
All the rainbow colors reeling
Push through the haze of rights and hippyites
The potsmokingvegan needs a light
Stagger down the stairs to the wall
Where you see it scrawled

I just want to be happy
I just want to be free
I just want to be happy
I just want to be me

He traveled far
He traveled further than the farthest star
He ever dreamed of
He ever saw out the back window of his car
But when it came
Down to what he knew and what he felt
He couldn’t help
But stop to wonder if all this was what he meant
