The Lyrics

I took a hit this morning
Then it came on with no warning
I knew because I started feeling giddy
The sun shone up above
Feels like I’m cookin’ in an oven
Melting my skin and it doesn’t look pretty

And if your brain’s just fine
It can really be sublime
If not, watch out you might just go insane
You may be overjoyed
If you have never toyed
With reality it’s fun to play

And I’ve been
Taken on an acid trip, blown away
Taken on an acid trip, lasts all day
Taken on an acid trip, in my mind
Taken on an acid trip, I’m trippin' all the time
Trip out

I got shadowy vision
You will too if you listen
Rolled a smoke so I can try to mellow
Like I’m walking on tar
Tracers trailing near and far
Walls quivering like they’re made out of Jell-O

Sensibility’s on the run
Cause I’m having too much fun
Love it here and wish that I could stay
The temptation I must avoid
Or my head will be devoid
That was all I really had to say

And I’ll be
Takin’ another acid trip, blown away
Takin’ another acid trip, lasts all day
Takin’ another acid trip, in my mind
Takin’ another acid trip, you know I’m really flyin’

Takin’ another acid trip
Blown away, every day

pacing a little shaky but that comes with the territory, doesn't it ? the sentiment

Nice tribute to the hallucinogenic-fueled 70s!

I may have docked you a point in pacing, but this is my favorite of the day... :)
