Lyrics[edit]

    I wanna tell you 'bout Texas Radio and the Big Beat 
    Comes out of the Virginia swamps 
    Cool and slow with plenty of precision 
    With a back beat narrow and hard to master 
    
    Some call it heavenly in it's brilliance 
    Others, mean and ruthful of the Western dream 
    I love the friends I have gathered together on this thin raft 
    We have constructed pyramids in honor of our escaping 
    This is the land where the Pharaoh died 
    
    The Negroes in the forest brightly feathered 
    They are saying, "Forget the night. 
    Live with us in forests of azure. 
    Out here on the perimeter there are no stars 
    Out here we is stoned - immaculate." 
    
    Listen to this, and I'll tell you 'bout the heartache 
    I'll tell you 'bout the heartache and the lose of God 
    I'll tell you 'bout the hopeless night 
    The meager food for souls forgot 
    I'll tell you 'bout the maiden with raw iron soul 
    
    I'll tell you this 
    No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn
