A slow and somber psychedelic blues about alcoholism. The psychedelic aspects of alcohol only come from a possible severe withdrawal side effect usually referred to as Delirium Tremens.

Northern Lights is a psychedelic sound poem.


Purple Bottle... Purple Bottle...
Do you have that Purple Bottle for me? x2
Because I don't like to wine,
But do you have some for me?

Red Bottle... Red Bottle...
Do you have that Red Bottle for me? x2
Because if you don't,
That Dionysus I won't see.

(psychedelic sax solo)

Green Bottle... Green Bottle...
Do you have that Green Bottle for me? x2
Because if you don't,
That Green Fairy I won't see.

Yellow Bottle... Yellow Bottle...
Do you have that rat poison for me? x2
Because if you do,
The Grim Reaper I'll see.

/ Northern Lights /

Psychedelic rays
Pierce into your eyes,
Chromatic light beams
Of unusual size

Iridescence that ain't no surprise
Climb these scales into the skies
Chromatic plasma pies

Melancholy never tasted sweeter
Than your medicine fever
I got so high
Didn't even need a lighter

Man... I took just one toke,
Wasn't much for a city bloke
But, man, I got high...
Altitude sickness

I went on a plane ride the other day...
