Are You Experienced?
If you can just get your mind together
Then come on across to me
We'll hold hands and then we'll watch the sun rise
From the bottom of the sea

Are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
Well, I have

Well, I know, I know you'll probably scream and cry
That your little world won't let you go
But who in your measly little world are trying to prove
That you're made out of gold and -a can't be sold

So, are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
Well, I have
Ah, let me prove it to you

Hurray, I awake from yesterday
Alive but the war is here to stay
So my darling and me
Decide to take our last walk through the noise to the sea
Not to die but to be reborn
Away from lands so battred and torn
Forever

So, you see it's really such a mess
Every inch of earth is a fighting nest
Giant pencil and lipstick-tube shaped things
Continue to rain and cause screamin' pain
And the arctic stains from silver blue to bloody red
As our feet find the sand
And the sea is straight ahead
Straight ahead
Straight ahead


Trumpets and violins, I hear in the distance
I think they're calling our names
Maybe now you can't hear them, but you will, you will
If you just take hold of my hand

Are you experienced?
Have you ever been experienced?
Well, I have

Not necessarily stoned
But beautiful
