  New Orleans - 23 Mar 1989  

I's thinkin' of a series of dreams
Where nothin' comes up to the top
Everythin' stays down where it's wounded
An' come to a permanent stop.
Wasn't thinking of anything specific
Like in a dream where someone wakes up and screams.
Nothin' too very scientific
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.

Thinkin' of a series of dreams
Where the time and the tempo drag
And there's no exit in any direction
'Cept the one that you can't see with your eyes.
Wasn't makin' any great connection
Wasn't fallin' for any intricate scheme
Nothin' that would pass inspection
I's just thinkin' of a series of dreams.

Dreams where the umbrella is folded
And into the path you are hurled
And the cards are no good that you're holdin'
Unless they're from another world.

In one, the surface was frozen
In another, I witnessed a crime
In one, I was runnin' and in another
All I seemed to be doin' was climb.
Wasn't lookin' for any special assistance
Nor going through any great extremes
I'd already gone the distance
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.

Dreams where the umbrella is folded
And into the path you are hurled
And the cards are no good that you're holdin'
Unless they're from another world.

I'd already gone the distance
I's just thinkin' of a series of dreams.
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.  up

  New Orleans - 23 Mar 1989  

I's thinkin' of a series of dreams
Where nothin' comes up to the top
Everything stays down where it's wounded
And comes to a permanent stop.
Wasn't thinking of anything specific
Like in a dream where someone wakes up and screams.
Nothin' too very scientific
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.

Thinkin' of a series of dreams
Where the middle an' the bottom drop out
An' you're walkin' out of the darkness
An' into the shadows of doubt.
Wasn't goin' to any great trouble
In believin' it's whatever it seems.
Nothin' to heavy to burst the bubble
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.

Thinkin' of a series of dreams
Where the time and the tempo drag.
Suddenly the gate is thrown open
An' you're left there holdin' the bag.
Wasn't makin' any great connection
Wasn't fallin' for any intricate scheme.
Nothin' that would pass inspection
I's just thinkin' of a series of dreams.

Dreams where the umbrella is folded
And into the path you are hurled
And the cards are no good that you're holdin'
Unless they're from another world.

In one the surface was frozen
In another I witnessed a crime.
In one I was runnin' and in another
All I seemed to be doin' was climb.
Wasn't lookin' for any special assistance
Nor goin' through any great extremes
I'd already gone the distance
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.  up

  New Orleans - 23 Mar 1989  

I's thinkin' of a series of dreams
Where nothin' comes up to the top
Everything stays down where it's wounded
And come to a permanent stop.
Wasn't thinking of anything specific
Like in a dream where someone wakes up and screams.
Nothin' too very scientific
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.

Thinkin' of a series of dreams
Where the time and the tempo fly
And there's no exit in any direction
'Cept the one that you can't see with your eyes.
Wasn't makin' any great connection
Wasn't fallin' for any intricate scheme
Nothin' that would pass inspection
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.

Dreams where the umbrella is folded
And into the path you are hurled
And the cards are no good that you're holdin'
Unless they're from another world.

In one numbers were runnin' 
In another I witnessed a crime.
In one I was runnin' and in another
All I seemed to be doin' was climb.
Wasn't lookin' for any special assistance
Nor going through any great extremes
I'd already gone the distance
