Story

Performed at Sunol Jazz Cafe live with Mystery Force. Inspired by the experience of sleeping in my Valiant on Mount Shasta and waking covered in a foot of snow.

Lyrics

studies have shown more is unknown than we thought

sensory overload 

drive in the moonlight up a dirt road

i don't know where to go

turn off the engine watch the snow

ah ha... ah ha...

 

i dreamt i flew with crows

up though the treetops i arose

but then before i awoke

i was taken prisoner let me go let me go

 

a ha ...

 

and in the day i flew away i flew away

 

studies have shown

more didn't know what they bought

i slept all through the night

under a blanket thick and white

a blanket that kept me warm yeah but

roll down the window greet the morning

 

ah ha...
