Lyrics The Soft Parade

I am troubled immeasurably by your eyes
I am struck by the feather of your soft reply
The sound of glass speaks quick disdain
And conceals what your eyes fight to explain
When I was back there in seminary school there was a person there who put forth the proposition
That you can petition the Lord with prayer
Petition the Lord with prayer
Petition the Lord with prayer
You cannot petition the Lord with prayer
Can you give me sanctuary
I must find a place to hide
A place for me to hide
Can you find me soft asylum
I can't make it anymore
The Man is at the door
Peppermint, miniskirts
Chocolate candy
Champion sax and a girl named Sandy
There's only four ways to get unraveled
One is to sleep and the other is travel da da
One is a bandit up in the hills
One is to love your neighbor 'till his wife gets home
Nursery bones
Winter women
Growing stones
Carrying babies to the river
Streets and shoes
Letter writers selling news
The monk bought lunch
Ha ha ha he bought a little
Yes he did
This is the best part of the trip
This is the trip
The best part
I really like
What'd he say
Yeah, right
Pretty good huh
I'm proud to be a part of this number
Successful hills are here to stay
Everything must be this way
Gentle streets where people play
Welcome to the Soft Parade
All our lives we sweat and save
Building for a shallow grave
Must be something else we say somehow to defend this place
Everything must be this way
Everything must be this way
The Soft Parade has now begun
Listen to the engines hum
People out to have some fun
Cobra on my left
Leopard on my right yeah
Deer woman in a silk dress
Girls with beads around their necks
Kiss the hunter of the green vest who has wrestled before with lions in the night
Out of sight
The lights are getting brighter
The radio is moaning
Calling to the dogs
There are still a few animals left out in the yard
But it's getting harder to describe
To the underfed
Tropic corridor
Tropic treasure
What got us this far to this mild equator
We need someone or something new
Something else to get us through
Yeah, come on
Calling on the dogs
Calling on the dogs
Oh it's getting harder
Calling on the dogs
Calling on the dogs
You got to meet me
Slay a few animals at the crossroads
But it's getting
Gotta meet me
We're going great
Yeah at the edge of town
Tropic treasure
Outskirts of the city
You and I
We need someone new
Better bring your gun
Just you and I
We're gonna ride and have some fun
When all else fails we can whip the horse's eyes and make them sleep and cry
