Song Description

A longer description of a song about refusal to conform to a world that makes no sense, with allusions to Arabian Nights, Cleopatra and more. Continues to rock.

Story Behind the Song

Call me!

Lyrics

Flying carpet
Take me to the proper Bagdad
I get so disoriented sometimes
Take me somewhere
Where I can be somebody new
Somebody you won't even recognize

And all these crazy people trying to put me in their world
I don't wanna hear the lies that they're knowing
And all around the long way down they're calling out my name
I ain't going
I ain't going

Cleopatra
Oh my God, what's that you're
Holding to the breast I'd like to hold to me
Is it so bad?
Or are you just another
Prisoner of the way they say it oughta be?

And all these crazy people trying to put me in their world
I don't wanna see the colors they're showing
And all around the long way down I went so nearly blind
I ain't going
I ain't going

Can you see it coming?
With their program for an automatic world
Where everything is easy
But it will hurt you if you son't believe
And I don't believe

Chorus

Flying carpet
Take me to the proper Bagdad
