Natureís Cathedrals

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Loose In The City

 

 

Iím headin' back out to Natureís Cathedrals

To baptize myself in the river of life

I set my soul free to soar with the eagles

And I build me a campfire to light up the night

 

And thereís whisperin' thunder in the sky that Iím under

It cuts through my mind like sight for the blind

The world that I want is too hard to look for

When the world that I need is so easy to find

 

And I lay myself down under blankets of sky

The flicker of the firelight will dance in my eye

I drift off to sleep like a babe in the woods

Prayin' my evils donít outweigh my goods

 

And I wake up to rain and I hear the wind race

The drops are like pixies are kissin' my face

And itís so nice to be here and I feel so good

I will gladly trade iron and concrete for wood

 

To the mountains, the valleys, to the rivers and streams

With a pocket full of wishes and a head full of dreams

And Iím headin' back out to Natureís Cathedrals

To baptize myself in the river of life

I set my soul free to soar with the eagles

And I build me a campfire to light up the night
