our twitter pal @jgomezt requested lyrics to Other Side so here they are:
i don’t believe in your medicine
so leave me to die
and when i said “i’m goin crazy”
i meant to the other side.
go on ahead past the neighbors’ fence
climb into their yard
it was all God’s land another time, lady
we’re reclaiming our part
couldn’t entertain that in our world
i suggest you throw the telephone away
be that mask.
be that mask you wear in your play
alarm awake now you’re energized!
to make an impression
i would like my soul to levitate
see you from the other side
all you right in hand step there about
all the weaklings stand in line
you keep getting pushed over the edge
go on and reach for the sky
but you couldn’t entertain that in our world
i suggst you throw this telephone away
be that mask…
be that mask your eyes close!
you oughta see life from this angle
the world is a ball-shaped mass you’re just a little spot on it
see you from the other side.
