I found myself on the road to confusion
A dull mind and a weak constitution
I gave a ride to a medicine man
He had a glass eye white light in his hands
Now

I wanna run through the green green grass
Shine a light on the shadows of the past
I wanna feel like a Siamese twin
Mass appeal with a solitude spin

Oh now, oh now he stopped my world turnin'
Oh now, oh now this is a higher learnin'

Listen
Oh, and I bet that you don't even think about it
Do you now boy?
When they tell us that we couldn't live without it

We climbed up to the mountain snow
And in the valley we was laid so low
But we will rise like the Phoenix from the ashes
We will rise like the Phoenix from the ashes

Oh now, oh now this is a higher learnin'
Oh now, oh now my eyes are burnin'
Come to the light, come to the light
(Put your mind in the hands of the medicine man)
Come to the light, come to the light
(Put your mind in the hands of the medicine man)

Time is a slippery fish now
Time is a slippery fish now
Drink deep, let your memory slip down
Time is a slippery fish now
(Put your mind in the hands of the medicine man)

He says we're livin' underground
We've been asleep in a memory dreamin'
The spell was broken by the sound
The cut is deep but the wound is healin'

And we will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes
We will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes
We will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes
We will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes
I will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes

He says he speaks to the monsoon rain
Drink deep and you'll feel no pain
I came to on a desolate avenue
My legs are weak but my mind full of fortitude

Oh now, oh now he stopped my world turnin'
Oh now, oh now my eyes are burnin'
Come to the light, come to the light
(Put your mind in the hands of the medicine man)
Come to the light, come to the light
(Put your mind in the hands of the medicine man)

Time is a slippery fish now
Time is a slippery fish now
Drink deep, let your memory slip down
Time is a slippery fish now
(Put your mind in the hands of the medicine man)
Yea yea yea yea yea yea yea
Yea yea yea yea yea yea c'mon
Yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea yea
