and the experience lyrics – i mother earth

snowin’ in july
my girl’s mouth on my toes
complainin’ old ghosts
in bedsheets of love

christmas in my legs
a strange start to summer
but i gave it all up
in time to wonder

just when i thought
i knew what i wanted
a dirty old man
reminds me i’m young

f*ck experience, the truth
the truth of all colors
think it out, feel it up
but do it right now

how long ’till i’m real
i long to be real
how long ’till i’m real
left home to live and i did
trippin’ all alone

naked on my own

i’ve traveled miles
because of my head
i’ve sang to myself
to keep from goin’ mad

the land as my bed
i slept beside the road
the ground is my friend
i become the road

the longer i’m gone
changin’ on the go
the better i’ll know
the better i’ll know

the longer i’m gone
changin’ on the go
the better i’ll know
the better i’ll know

the mother and dad
can only give you so much
so i gave it of myself
in the real world, love

twenty first century
mind expansion
i wrote my own poems
’cause i lived ’em back there

how long ’till i’m real
i long to be real
how long ’till i’m real
left home to live and i did
