Going To The Land Of Forever

I am going to the land of forever
where the eye of Jupiter sleeps
Oh I'm going to have flowers
when I get home, when I get home

I am on the eastern shores of never
waiting for the ship to come in
It's so cold, so shivering cold
and it's warm back home, oh so warm

I've been stranded here ever so long
for years or maybe more
or maybe minutes in the cycle of time
and it's time to go back home, go back home

The wind does howl on the shores of never
ice grows like weeds in yon pasture
I shrivel and die inside where I do abide
my time till the ship comes to take me home

I'm going to the land of forever
where the eye of Jupiter sleeps
oh I'm going to have flowers
when I get home, when I get home.

    Beautiful Diamond, While reading I could almost hear the sweet music of a Spanish guitar and the beatings of drums with gypsies dancing in jubilation at the thought of returning home.
