    I am heading for a time of quiet
    When my restlessness is past
    And I can lie down on my blanket
    And release my fists at last

    I am heading for a time of solitude
    Of peace without illusions
    When the perfect circle
    Marries all beginnings and conclusions

    And when they say
    That you're not good enough
    Well the answer is
    You're not
    But who are they
    Or what is it
    That eats at what you've got
    With the hunger of ambition
    For the change inside the purse
    They are handcuffs on the soul, my friends
    Handcuffs on the soul
    And worse

    I am heading for a place of quiet
    Where the sage and sweetgrass grow
    By a lake of sacred water
    From the mountain's melted snow
