Me Wise Magic

I know what you're thinkin'

What you're thinkin' is easy to see

I know what you're dreamin'

I have those same dreams


Reachin' to the feet of God

Lookin' for a sign

It was right here all the time, time, time, time ...

I am you and you are me


Do you believe?

Don't you trust me?

Me wise magic

Baby it's all right!

If you could see through my eyes

Me wise magic


I feel you breathin'

Don't you trust me?

I feel you agreein'

I know what you need


Don't you lie

Just listen through me!

My words at best to you a fortune cookie

Who are you and where are we?


Do you believe?

Don't you trust me?

Me wise magic, yeah-yeah!

If you could see

See through my eyes

Me wise magic


A little zen headed your way

You'll get it halfway down the interstate

Four days from now it all blows clear

A Buddhist riff for your inner ear


Do you believe?

Don't you trust me?

Me wise magic, yeah-yeah!

If you could see

See through my eyes

Me wise magic ...


Do you believe?


Tell me you believe

Do you believe?

If you could see

Me wise magic


Do you believe?

Me wise magic


If you could see

Me wise magic

Farbeit for me to suggest that Diamond Dave & the boys

aren't probably the go-to folks to consult

if you're seeking to learn about or increase the spirituality in your life.

You do you, as the current favorite expression among the cattle goes.


That said, the fact that they attempted to write a spiritual song

of any kind is fairly remarkable;

even more remarkable in my view is that it spent something like

a month and a half atop Billboard's charts in 1996.

As far as their body of work goes,

it remains one of my all-time favorites.

Most definitely, its weirdness has helped.

But the song is also kick-ass, and remains so nearly

thirty years later.
