    Right now I need a place to go
    A place where peaceful waters flow
    A place where I can be myself
    Without explanation to someone else

    Do you know of such a place?
    Can you help a brother out?
    Can you show me how to get there
    Without pain, pause, or doubt
    Is such a place hard to find?
    Can I get there just by using my mind?

    I need to escape
    Find a way to be alone
    I'll do it without ever leaving my home
    The drama around me will sharpen my concentration
    I'll get there by using my imagination

    Visions in my mind will fuel the journey
    The course will be charted by my need to be free
    Free in this place where I need to be

    I believe...

    ...you are looking
    for that long lost
    51st state of Euphoria.
    If I could spit some-
    thin' almost as good
    as this one, could I
    go with you???

    *feelin' it

    yes....

    my dear brotha... a place so vitally important...where peace reigns supreme. There is such a location of our own creation found in the mind, and the heart and soul follow close behind.

    Speak to me early and often, Poet.

    Thank you
