  • Mystic of the east, mystic from the streets
    Mystic with no brief, back here on the street
    Mystic out of reach, can't find no reason to speak
    I just got in too deep for the mystic of the east

    I was deep in the heart of down
    Deep in the heart of down
    Deep in the heart of down
    Deep in the heart

    Mystic with no peace, back here in the east
    Fed up to the teeth, mystic of the east

    I was deep in the heart of down
    Deep in the heart of down
    Deep in the heart of down
    Deep in the heart

    Mystic out of reach, can't seem to find my brief
    Gone with the wild geese and I've had it up to the teeth
    Mystic of the east, back here on the streets
    Mystic with no brief, I can't find any reason to speak

    Mystic of the east, east, east, east
    Back here on the street, back on the street
    Back on the street, mystic of the east
    Back here on the street, mystic of the east Writer/s: VAN MORRISON
