Natureís Cathedrals

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Natureís Cathedrals

 

 

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 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 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 Ė kind

 

I wake up to rain and I hear the wind race

The drops are like pixies are kissin' my face

Itís so nice to be here and I feel so good

I will gladly trade iron and concrete for wood

 

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

With a pocket full of spare change 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
