He's been to the jungle 
He's taken the drugs 
Led by shamans
He's seen the inside of his head 

Now, one would hope, 
Some knowledge of 
     The heart 
Might be 
That the sky might 
     Open up 

That he might see the heart 
-The spiritual connection 
With -

There is no explanation for 
What he's done 
What he's seen 
But the size of the bugs 
Was obscene . . .

Am I jealous that some people 
Have the health 
To travel ?

I suppose . . .

But from what I've been told 
The greatest journey 
Is within -
The greatest test of courage 
Is to meet ourselves 
In silence 
And let God come in 
And be our friend
