Come sit beside me That'll do for now The night has come and left me Just the light that you allow
Come speak my name Fill my head with all such foolish dreams My flesh and blood Is no more real to me Than what it seems
My love for you is burning Like a spark along a fuse I feel your mark upon me now As surely as the hand that leaves the bruise
Life is for the living And life comes hard for some The rest of us with flesh and blood Make it hard all along
All I ever wanted Was the freedom to refuse Or something of my own to love enough To hate To lose
The fever in my brain Is leaving smoke behind my eyes But the part of me that wants to change Fights the part of me that trys
Come see the golden light Cause I've turned the gold light on Sometimes god knows You gotta learn to shine, shine, shine shine, shine gold.
I stepped out of darkness And for a moment I'm only living by your kiss your kiss your kiss your kiss your Lips your kiss And now, just for now, our flesh and blood Is more real than this More real than this

"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
