  Oh Mercy session 9, The Studio, New Orleans LA - 23.mar.1989, BS-1-3 version  

I's thinkin' of a series of dreams
Where nothin' comes up to the top
Everything stays down where it's wounded
An' comes to a permanent stop
Wasn't thinkin' 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
Suddenly the gate is thrown open / And there's no exit in any direction
An' you're left there holdin' the bag / '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 goin' 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
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.

Just thinkin' of a series of dreams
Just thinkin' of a series of dreams.  up

  Oh Mercy session 9, The Studio, New Orleans LA - 23.mar.1989, BS-8 version, Deeds of Mercy version #1  

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 thinkin' 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
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

Where nothin' comes up to the top

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
