They were hiding behind hay bales,
They were planting in the full moon
They had given all they had for something new
But the light of day was on them,
They could see the thrashers coming
And the water shone like diamonds in the dew.

And I was just getting up, hit the road before it’s light
Trying to catch an hour on the sun
When I saw those thrashers rolling by,
Looking more than two lanes wide
I was feelin’ like my day had just begun.

Where the eagle glides ascending
There’s an ancient river bending
Down the timeless gorge of changes
Where sleeplessness awaits
I searched out my companions,
Who were lost in crystal canyons
When the aimless blade of science
Slashed the pearly gates.

It was then I knew I’d had enough,
Burned my credit card for fuel
Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
And my suitcase in my hand
How I lost my friends I still don’t understand.

They had the best selection,
They were poisoned with protection
There was nothing that they needed,
Nothing left to find
They were lost in rock formations
Or became park bench mutations
On the sidewalks and in the stations
They were waiting, waiting.

So I got bored and left them there,
They were just deadweight to me
Better down the road without that load
Brings back the time when I was eight or nine
I was watchin’ my mama’s T.V.,
It was that great Grand Canyon rescue episode.

Where the vulture glides descending
On an asphalt highway bending
Thru libraries and museums, galaxies and stars
Down the windy halls of friendship
To the rose clipped by the bullwhip
The motel of lost companions
Waits with heated pool and bar.

But me I’m not stopping there,
Got my own row left to hoe
Just another line in the field of time
When the thrashers comes, I’ll be stuck in the sun
Like the dinosaurs in shrines
But I’ll know the time has come
To give what’s mine.

Prevod pesme

Vršalica

Skrivali su se iza bala slame,
Sadili su pod punim mesecom,
Dali su sve što su imali za nešto novo
Ali svetlo dana ih je obasjavalo,
Mogli su da vide vršalice kako dolaze
I voda je zasjala kao dijamanti u vodi.

A ja sam tek ustajao, krenuo pre nego što je svanulo
Pokušavajući da za sat sunce preduhitrim
Kad sam video te vršalice kako prolaze,
Delujući šire od dve staze
Imao sam osećaj kao da je moj dan tek počeo.

Tamo gde orao klizi uzlazno
Jedna prastara reka vijuga
Niz bezvremensku klisuru promena
Gde nesanica vreba
Tražio sam svoje kompanjone,
Koji su bili izgubljeni u kristalnim kanjonima
Kada je besciljna oštrica nauke
Presekla bisernu kapiju.

Tada shvatih da mi je dojadilo,
Istroših kreditnu karticu na gorivo
Krenuo sam tamo gde se pločnik u pesak pretvara
Sa kartom u jednom smeru za zemlju istine
I koferom u ruci
Kako sam izgubio prijatelje, i dalje mi nije jasno.

Imali su najbolju selekciju,
Bili su otrovani protekcijama
Njima ništa nije trebalo,
Ništa više nisu tražili
Izgubljeni su u kamenim formacijama
ili postali mutacije klupa u parku
na trotoarima i u stanicama
Oni su čekali, čekali.

Tako da je meni dosadilo i ostavio sam ih tamo,
Za mene su bili samo mrtav teret
Bolje mi je na putu bez tog tovara
To me podseća na vreme kad sam imao osam ili devet
Gledao sam mamin TV,
Bila je ona sjajna epizoda o spašavanju iz Velikog kanjona

Tamo gde lešinari klizeći se spuštaju
Na krivinu auto puta
Kroz biblioteke i muzeje, galaksije i zvezde
Niz vetrovite hodnike prijateljstva
do ruže bičem potkresane
Motel izgubljenih kompanjona
čeka sa zagrejanim bazenom i barom.

Ali ja, ja tamo neću stati
Imam ja svojih problema
Samo još jedna linija u polju vremena
Kad vršalica stigne, ja ću biti zaglavljen na suncu
Kao dinosaurusi u svetilištima
Da dam svoje.
