Grateful Dead - Can't Come Down lyrics

I'm flying down deserted streets Wrapped in mother's wine and sheets Asbestos boots on flaming feet Dreaming of forbidden treats When uniforms on nighttime beats Ask me where I'm going and what I eat I answer them with a voice so sweet I can't come down It's plain to see I can't come down I've been set free Who you are and what you do Don't make no difference to me Well someone's trying to tell me where it's at How I do this and why I do that With secret smiles, like a Cheshire Cat And leather wings like a vampire bat I fly away to my cold water flat And eat my way to a bone of fat And I say to the man with the funny hat I can't come down It's plain to see I can't come down I've been set free Who you are and what you do Don't make no difference to me They say I'll be good to lose my grip My hold on reality is starting to slip Tell me to get off of this trip They say that its like a sinking ship Life's sweet wine is too warm to sip And if I drink I'll surely flip I just say as I take a nip I can't come down It's plain to see I can't come down I've been set free Who you are and what you do Don't make no difference to me So, as I dream of cotton seas And granite halls and redwood trees An ugly eye that only sees Endless mirrors and infinite me's And about the winter's coming freeze This afterthought I say with ease To all of you who made your fees I can't come down It's plain to see I can't come down I've been set free Who you are and what you do Don't make no difference to me
