lyrics

Oh Thoreau, Mister Emerson, transcendental natural medicine
Stephenson and Foster-Wallace, intellects of the first degree
Casteneda’s Don Juan, Ruiz’s Four Agreements
Zinn’s pursuit of justice with a vigilant vehemence
Yogananda, the Dalai Llama, Venkatesananda portray Nirvana

My friends that I’ll never know, through their written songs and stories told
Though not present here, they’re never far away
Sitting right there on my shelf is this remedy for my mental health
“Thank you to the friends I’ll never know.
Heartfelt gratitude deep in my soul”

Roger’s striking portraits of himself, Ray Davies not like everybody else
Bradley and Cobain they burned so bright, Rage and The Clash brought the dynamite
Peter Tosh and Bob Marley. KRS, Chuck D, Winston Rodney
Thom’s ballads of fear and dread, galactic symphonies buzzing through his Radiohead

My friends that I’ll never know, through their written songs and their stories told
Though not present here, they’re never far away
Sitting right there on my shelf is the remedy for my mental health
"Thank you to the friends I’ll ever know”
because sometimes ...

In existential times of crisis that one feels as an incarnate being
I scrape along the rocky bottom like a punctured submarine
but words of truth and words of wisdom help to restore my buoyancy
Emerge from the ocean of my despair as I see ….my mind can break free.

My friends that I’ll never know, through their written songs and stories told
Though not present here, they’re never far away
Sitting right there on my shelf is the remedy for my mental health
“Thank you to the friends I’ll ever know
This heartfelt gratitude deep in my soul”
