Verse 1

When the deep blue night is running close on your tracks,
And you can feel the green monkey crawling across your back.
Don't take me so real you forget how to feel,
Don't let the threat of the dagger turn your heart into steel.


Chorus (3rd time with tempo change (slow) 
       and 3-part harmony, not unlike CSN!)  


Em9                    A7
Smell the perfume of a silent dream, 
Em9                  A7
Fly the ocean read a story to me.
Em9                   A7                   
Speak the wisdom of a redwood tree,   
C (tacet)
speak to me. (to Intro 1 & 2)

Verse 2

So you think that star-cluster shining bright in the sky,
Will speak the fate of your evening, tell the truth to your lie?
Don't let the features you read control the tickets you buy,
Soon as you learn that you live you're just beginning to die. (chorus)


Solo over verse chords after second chorus -- 
end solo and return to chorus with new tempo.
