Time Out Of Mind Lyrics

Artist: Steely Dan
Album: Time Out Of Mind

Son you better be ready for love
On this glory day
This is your chance to believe
What I've got to say

Keep your eyes on the sky
Put a dollar in the kitty
Don't the moon look pretty

Tonight when I chase the dragon
The water will change to cherry wine
And the silver will turn to gold
Time out of mind

I am holding the mystical stone
It's direct from Lasa
Where people are rolling in the snow
Far from the world we know

Children we have it right here
It's the light in my eyes
It's perfection and grace
It's the smile on my face

Tonight when I chase the dragon
The water will change to cherry wine
And the silver will turn to gold
Time out of mind

Children we have it right here
It's the light in my eyes
It's perfection and grace
It's the smile on my face

Tonight when I chase the dragon
the water will change to cherry wine
And the silver will turn to gold
Time out of mind

Great song and greater artists.
I remember 20/20 did a piece on this song along with news and documentary on what "Chasing the Dragon" really is. Was good stuff.
Not that I feel smoking opium, synthetic opiates like Roxycodone, or even the more alluring heroine AND cocaine together is cool. I am watching it ruin so many good American lives continually.

if you actually listen to the song, it really just sounds like music that got kicked out of the elevator for trying to molest children.
so yeah, keep that l burning, sit back and relax... you might get to be the dj at kinkos some day.

The complex chords meld so well -
I like the spiritual/religious interpretation.

Very well put, Donna. "Meld." I would also suggest that their lyrics -- even the ones that are opaque -- typically meld together so well that hearing them is shear pleasure. I don't know any other pop artists about whom that can be said.

the album "time Out Of Mind" is not easy to get because its protagonist applauds the virtuous peak effects of smoking (actually huffing) heroin. Its also as beautiful a song as "Deacon Blues" which is my out-and-out favorite Steely Dan composition with an outstanding jazz band arrangement.

Your 2nd vs is incorrect...In the 2nd vs, Donald Fegan sings, "I am holding a mystical sphere" (not stone)

I've been groovin' to this superb jazz tune on a music DVD for a while, but this is the first time I've seen the lyrics. Being a bit of a straight arrow I have to admit the drug references are a little off-putting, but for me it's that killer big band jazz feel of this one that keeps me hitting replay. Deeply satisfying. :) The chord progressions scream classic jazz to me, and those vocal and instrumental attacks on the pre chorus and chorus - oh my!

It's Tonight when I chase the dragon
The water may change to cherry wine

Chased the dragon for the best part of a decade or more. Loved this song during that period and still do 30 years into 'clean time'. The silver does turn to gold in one's mind.
