Wondering Where The Lions Are (5:14)
(Originally from the album "Dancing in the Dragon's Jaws")



Sun's up, uuh huh, looks okay

the world survives into another day

and i'm thinking about eternity

some kind of 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 about eternity

some kind of 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 kind of 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 kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

and i'm wondering where the lions are...

i'm wondering where the lions are...



(following verses omitted from lyrical insert:)

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 as precise like the brain behind the gun

(should be!) they got me thinking about eternity

some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

and i'm wondering where the lions are...

i'm wondering where the lions are...



Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay

One of these days we're going to sail away,

going to sail into eternity

some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me

and i'm wondering where the lions are...

i'm wondering where the lions are...
