The Words Of Robert Hunter
    #934941 - 10/05/02 06:40 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Dark Star

Dark star crashes, pouring its light into ashes.
Reason tatters, the forces tear loose from the axis.
Searchlight casting for faults in the clouds of delusion.
Shall we go, you and I while we can
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

Mirror shatters in formless reflections of matter.
Glass hand dissolving to ice petal flowers revolving.
Lady in velvet recedes in the nights of goodbye.
Shall we go, you and I while we can
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

For Freak:

Look out of any window, any morning, any evening, any day.
Maybe the sun is shining, birds are singing,
No rain is falling from a heavy sky.
What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
For this is all a dream we dreamed one afternoon, long ago.

Walk out of any doorway, feel your way, feel your way like the day before.
Maybe you'll find direction,
Around some corner where it's been waiting to meet you.
What do you want me to do, to watch for you while you are sleeping?
The please don't be surprised when you find me dreaming too.

Look into any eyes you find by you, you can see clear to another day,
Maybe been seen before, through other eyes on other days while going home.
What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
It's all a dream we dreamed one afternoon, long ago.

Walk into splintered sunlight,
Inch your way through dead dreams to another land.
Maybe you're tired and broken,
Your tongue is twisted with words half spoken and thoughts unclear

What do you want me to do, to do for you to see you through?
A box of rain will ease the pain, and love will see you through.

Just a box of rain, wind and water,
Sun and shower, wind and rain,
In and out the window like a moth before a flame.

And it's just a box of rain, I don't know who put it there,
Believe it if you need it, or leave it if you dare.

And it's just a box of rain, or a ribbon for tour hair;
Such a long long time to be gone, and a short time to be there.

I told Althea I was feeling lost, lacking in some direction.
Althea told me upon scrutiny that my back might need protection.
I told Althea that treachery was tearing me limb from limb.
Althea told me better cool down boy, settle back, easy Jim.

You may be Saturday's child, all alone, moving with a tinge of grace.
You may be a clown in the burying ground, or just another pretty face.
You may meet the fate on Ophelia, sleeping and penchence to dream.
Honest to the point of recklessness, self-centered in the extreme.

  :grin: A good book Freak, I don't know what happened to my copy though.

Crazy cat peekin' through a lace bandanna,
Like a one-eyed Cheshire, like a diamond-eye jack.
A leaf of all colors plays a golden-string fiddle,
To a double-E waterfall over my back.

Did your copy have that cheesey acetate recording in the back of it where it had Neal Cassidy rapping wildly stoned on acid at one of the early trips festivals and people booing him offstage cauz no one knew he waz?

No....I never did hear that famous recording but I have read it was not uncommon for neil to do such things at the acid tests.

Blow the horn, tap the tambourine.
Close the gap on the dark years in between.
You and me, Cassidy.

LMAO! Well you sure didn't miss much. You could sorta hear the dead playing in the background(I think i vaguely remember Pigpen warbling the words to "lovelight").Needless to say, like everyone else that was admonished to make a more duurable recording of that acetate, i failed to do so. The entire era was pretty funny............... :laugh:

LOL...yea from what i read of those times Kessey and the Pranksters would get more air time than the Dead and the other Bay area bands. they would do acid and bang drums and Ken would recite some babble than sounded good to him. And Neil should have stuck to driving the bus.
but a good time was had by all thanks to Bear!

Owsley is alive. At least he was a couple years ago. My girlfriend at the time was doing a research paper on the 60s or something like that and she tried to email him for a small interview. He wasn't very coopertive. He has a web site somewhere.

I'm nowhere near to being an authority on that sort of stuff, one person who passed away not to long ago(chances are good you already knew) was John C. Lilly, author of "centre of the Cyclone", early experimenter with LSD in sensory deprivation tanks and excellent work concerning Dolphins...............i understand he had a bit of trouble with Ketamine in the last couple years of his life but i persoanally don'
t see hoow that in anyway negates the general excellence(imho) of his research into other areas. he just had one of thoise amazing minds that acknowledged no limits on our potential as human beings.

Owsley is still alive, I think he lives in the UK, I could be wrong.  I read an article in the last year about him and it went into some good details about his chemistry days, which he said in a way are still not over.  I wish could find it but I've tried and no luck  :confused:

Some favs of mine [Re: Adom]
    #955021 - 10/12/02 02:53 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
Perhaps they're better left unsung.
I don't know, don't really care
Let there be songs to fill the air.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
If your cup is full may it be again,
Let it be known there is a fountain,
That was not made by the hands of men.

There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

But if you fall you fall alone,
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home.

La dee da da da, La da da da da, Da da da, Da da, Da da da da da
La da da da, La da da, Da da, La da da da, La da, Da da.


--------------------------------------


All I know is something like a bird within her sang,
All I know she sang a little while and then flew on,
Tell me all that you know, I'll show you snow and rain.

If you hear that same sweet song again, will you know why?
Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passin' by,
Laugh in the sunshine, sing, cry in the dark, fly through the night.

Don't cry now, don't you cry, don't you cry anymore.
Sleep in the stars, don't you cry, dry your eyes on the wind.

All I know is something like a bird within her sang,
All I know she sang a little while and then flew off,
Tell me all that you know, I'll show you snow and rain.

Mountains of the Moon

Cold mountain water, the jade merchant's daughter,
Mountains of the moon, electra bow and bend to me.
Hi ho the carrion crow fol de rol de riddle
Hi ho the carrion crow bow and bend to me.

Hey, Tom Banjo hey a laurel, more than laurel you say sow.
More than laurel you may sow.
Hey, the laurel, hey the city in the rain,
Hey, hey, hey the wild wheat waving in the wind.

Twenty degrees of solitude, twenty degrees in all,
All the dancing kings and wives assembled in the hall.
Lost is the long and loneliest town fairly sybil flying.
All along the, all along the mountains of the moon.

Hey, Tom Banjo it's time to matter,
The earth will see you on through this time,
The earth will see you on through this time.

Down by the water, the Marsh King's daughter, did you know?
Clothed in totters always will be. Tom, where did you go?

Mountains of the moon, Electra, mountains of the moon,
All along the, all along the mountains of the moon.
