Beyond The Fences

People are not fools, she said
i think she paraphrased someone, i don't know who yet
she taught 'strangers religion'
she shook respect, and then she put it to bed
well now, out beyond the fences
beyond the middle-scientific heads
i made contact, - some momentary focus
and it was somethin' i'll never forget

i just lay out among the stars
and the stars rained down
and i could see a little farther
well it was the strangest night
i throw the moments over my shoulder
yeah it was the strangest time
that you know i never try to get over

i'm beyond the fences
yeah i'm out beyond the fences

down at the passion river
i stood in my thoughts, slingin' mud
i burned all the scientific bridges -
and when it let loose, man, i stood in the flood
but i will stand on my own volition
i am, perhaps, a bit too sentient
i'm out of breath, yeah, but i ain't stoppin'
i'm goin' over this fence

rpt. chorus

out there in the blue of distance
out beyond god's eminence
i felt around, for a minute, in my pocket
but all i could come up with was my six cents

rpt. chorus
