    They were hiding behind hay bales,
    They were planting in the full moon
    They had given all they had for something new
    But the light of day was on them,
    They could see the thrashers coming
    And the water shone like diamonds in the dew.

    And I was just getting up, hit the road before it's light
    Trying to catch an hour on the sun
    When I saw those thrashers rolling by,
    Looking more than two lanes wide
    I was feelin' like my day had just begun.

    Where the eagle glides ascending
    There's an ancient river bending
    Down the timeless gorge of changes
    Where sleeplessness awaits
    I searched out my companions,
    Who were lost in crystal canyons
    When the aimless blade of science
    Slashed the pearly gates.

    It was then I knew I'd had enough,
    Burned my credit card for fuel
    Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
    With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
    And my suitcase in my hand
    How I lost my friends I still don't understand.

    They had the best selection,
    They were poisoned with protection
    There was nothing that they needed,
    Nothing left to find
    They were lost in rock formations
    Or became park bench mutations
    On the sidewalks and in the stations
    They were waiting, waiting.

    So I got bored and left them there,
    They were just deadweight to me
    Better down the road without that load
    Brings back the time when I was eight or nine
    I was watchin' my mama's T.V.,
    It was that great Grand Canyon rescue episode.

    Where the vulture glides descending
    On an asphalt highway bending
    Thru libraries and museums, galaxies and stars
    Down the windy halls of friendship
    To the rose clipped by the bullwhip
    The motel of lost companions
    Waits with heated pool and bar.

    But me I'm not stopping there,
    Got my own row left to hoe
    Just another line in the field of time
    When the thrashers comes, I'll be stuck in the sun
    Like the dinosaurs in shrines
    But I'll know the time has come
    To give what's mine.
