Recorded and mixed analog... AAD, originally titled - Quaker State, I suggested the change to Adam.


She's a goddess and a genius
If you sit here you will see this
She's the artist and inventor of paradise
Although I feel I'm falling, she whispers not to worry
She knows the way, she is the way.

And she...
So simple and so wise
If misery is all you find
It's time to find the sacred state of mind.

She's the main frame and conductor
A seductress and instructor
She's the thought where they say there is none
Although I feel I'm falling she whispers not to worry
She knows the way, she is the way.

Ask for a hint, and she might give you one
Beauty in being, wake up it's what you're seeing.
