Wondering Where The Lions Are
Watch video at YouTube
Sun's up, mmm hm, looks okay
The world survives into another day
And I'm thinking 'bout eternity
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

I had another dream about lions at the door
They weren't half as frightening as they were before
But I'm thinking 'bout eternity
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

Walls, windows, trees, waves coming through
You be in me and I'll be in you
Together in eternity
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

Up among the firs where it smells so sweet
Or down in the valley where the river used to be
I got my mind on eternity
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are
I'm wondering where the lions are
I'm wondering where the lions are, uh huh
I'm wondering where the lions are
I'm wondering where the lions are, mmm hmm
Wondering where the lions are
Uh huh ah huh, uh huh ah huh

Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake
Thousand year old petroglyphs doing a double take
Pointing a finger at eternity
I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy

Young men marching, helmets shining in the sun
Polished and precise like the brain behind the gun
Should be, they got me thinking about eternity
But some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are
I'm wondering where the lions are
I'm wondering where the lions are, uh huh
I'm wondering where the lions are, mmm hmm
Wondering where the lions are, uh huh
Wondering where the lions are
Oh ho ho, oh huh

Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay
One of these days we're gonna sail away
We're gonna sail into eternity
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

And I'm wondering where the lions are
I'm wondering where the lions are
I'm wondering where the lions are
I'm wondering where the lions are, oh
Wondering where the lions are, hmm hm
I'm Wondering where the lions are, oh
Wondering where the lions are
Uh huh ah ha, uh huh ah ha
Uh huh ha...
