Supersonic Vision



Give your ears a taste:

Lyrics By: Robert Hunter

Sailor, sailor, sailing on 
A dark and distant sea
Supersonic visions of
A foreign galaxy

Supersonic vision
Fast as words it flies
Into the heart of music
And takes it by surprise

Supersonic, Supersonic
Supersonic, Supersonic

Parallel dimensions of
Your own reality
Sailor, sailing all alone
Across the outer sea

By living inside out I mean 
Living in between
Piebald clothes but no-one knows 
The colors you have seen

Supersonic vision
Fast as words it flies
Into the heart of music
And takes it by surprise

Supersonic vision
Fast as words it flies
Into the heart of music
And takes it by surprise

I know what you want of me
Don't have to ask me twice
Let's sit beneath the apple tree
And hear the wind's advice

Into the heart of solitude 
And out the other side
For a social interlude
There's not much to confide

Supersonic vision
Fast as words it flies
Into the heart of music
And takes it by surprise

Supersonic vision
Fast as words it flies
Into the heart of music
And takes it by surprise

Supersonic, Supersonic
Supersonic, Supersonic
