Psychedelia: A Mourner’s Tale

Mental paralysis takes over your mind

You’re a bee in an empty hive

Images appear and vanish in time

You are both dead and alive

Demons and dragons and danger and death

Suffering spears of time

Vanish in clouds of spiralling smoke

Gone, forever laid down

Lazy invaders are drowning their sorrows

Whiskey and vodka and wine

Babbling brooks and feelings of fear

Double their troubles for now

Butterflies in colours never seen before

Flapping around the room

Popular people get ripped into shreds

Bleeding and dying and doomed

Sid reaches down and feels the pain

Nancy lies dead on the bed

Heroin once again fills up his brain

Psychedelia takes over again
