Morning found us calmly unaware Noon burned gold into our hair At night, we swam the laughin' sea When summer's gone Where will we be
Your born, you become a teenager and have some laughs,twenties you make plans and live life as if there is no tomorrow and then you get old and life becomes a bit of a dissapointment. By that time its too late as you are fucked dude! Jim's version of Neil Young's 'Sugar Mountain'. Very profound to me!

tropic corridor, tropic treasure what got us this far to this mild equator. we need someone,somethin new something else to get us through. when all else fails we can whip the horses eyes and make them sleep and cry.
There are many and my mind has gone blank as it usually does when faced with having to think of my fave doors something or other
but of the top of my head i would say..
What have they done to the earth? what have they done to our fair sister? ravaged and plundered, ripped her and bit her stuck her with knives oin the side of the dawn and tied her with fences and dragged her down.....
Most powerful lyrics: Can you give me sanctuary, I must find a place to hide, a place for me to hide Can you find me soft asylum, I cant make it anymore, the man is at the door
Most profound: When the still sea conspires an armor And her sullen and aborted Currents breed tiny monsters True sailing is dead Awkward instant And the first animal is jettisoned Legs furiously pumping Their stiff green gallop And heads bob up Poise Delicate Pause Consent In mute nostril agony Carefully refined And sealed over
Because they sum up life as a struggle to the death
Most profound would have to be the WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat) lyric:
"No eternal reward can forgive us now, for wasting the dawn"
For me, it's reference to loss of childhood and innocence - we've lost those few fleeting years as a child wishing and wanting to be "grown ups" and then, after it's happened, we can never have them back - and no amount of "life after death" or "heavenly recompense" can quite negate this fact.
