Everybody Sing!
    #2904730 - 07/19/04 09:15 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision sofly creeping, left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain, still remains
Within the sound of silence

Hey McKennaFan, I was in the bookstore the other day (first picked up Haruki Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and then Nabokov's Lolita - it's about time I read it) and isn't it funny how shroomerites just pop in the head randomly? I was looking at fiction and saw all the McNames...and thought McKennaFan200 and walked over to the "Drinking, Screwing and Smoking" section of the store (best. wall. ever.) And I was gonna pick something McKenna up cause I've never read him..but had no idea what to pick! So quick! Recommend!

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

True Hallucinations is probably my fav. McKenna book. Get that if you can, Archaic Revival and Food of the Gods are books that I enjoyed as well.

Come on people, sing! Second verse now

In restless dreams I walked alone, narrow streets of cobblestone
Neath the halo of a streetlamp, I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light, split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw, ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking, people hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never shared, and no one dared
To stir the sound of silence

Fool, said I, you do not know, silence, like a cancer, grows
Hear my words and I might teach you
Take my arms then I might reach you
But my words, like silent raindrops fell, and echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they'd made
And the sign flashed its warning in the words that it was forming
And the sign said the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls, and whispered in the sounds of silence

:handth: :handth: :handth:

Thank you.
