Viet Nam; The After Math

Music like this are responsible for the best times of my life. When I was in Viet Nam there were the Heads and the Juicers, I was one of the heads who was always stoned on Viet Nam weed and Opium, so I flew through it all. I brought a pack of smelling salts from home, which came in capsules that you would snap open to inhale it. I would open the back of a Vicks inhaler and snap one capsule into it and seal it. The guys never had it. So after we got good and stoned, I took out the what we called Snappers and past it around in the Vicks inhaler and as they all took a sniff of it, we all got this amazing rush, it felt like we were taking off in a rocket, all the guys were going crazy throwing pillows around and screaming "WOW" We lived in Hutches and we traded off the Juicers for the Heads. Everyone in our Hutch was stoned. My brother got my parents to send me a tape player and some tapes of Jimi Hendrix, The Stones and the Doors and one of our friends had a guitar and played Beatle songs like the Fool On The Hill. We used to buy 10 jades the size of a cigarette for a buck lined with Opium, and I mean kick ass. The guys used to sit around my space where I had a styrofoam sheeting on the wall and in the back of it I had a string of Christmas lights going on and off and the flies would fly all around it, like they were in tune with the music. So they called it Gabriele's Light Show. One night, one of the guys said he was going out to get stoned and so I went with him. We were on top of a bunker smoking and we finished the whole 10 pack each and suddenly I heard music playing and started seeing musical notes flying in color. I said to my friend, do you see that and he said yes. I said Wow, lets follow it and we were like floating. We were getting closer to the music till finely we came up to an EM club and this guy came up to us and looked straight into my eyes and said; That's Beautiful, so we went in and got a beer.
There was a special bunker where all the heads would meet at the perimeter. When I had guard duty, I would try to stay at that bunker.
The heads would share their weed in pipes and water bowls. Well, one night there was a storm and the rain was coming down so hard that it made it harder to see. I took the first watch and I kept thinking about the guy who was stabbed by a VC who crawled up to the bunker and then jumped up and stabbed him. I could barely see anything in the pitch-black night with the rain coming down so hard. I had my poncho on and my M16 pointed into the dark. Then suddenly I heard something moving and I kept looking until finely I saw that it was a large rat. I felt a lot better. I finished my 4-hour shift and went below into the bunker and went to sleep while the other guy went above. When I woke up, the rat was laying on my chest looking straight into my eyes and then ran off. I guess he wanted to take shelter and stay warm.
Some guys used to drive out of the perimeter in the day to meet with Vietnam women who in some shelter where they would smoke weed and play music, but sometimes the MPs would come and the women would take the guys down into an underground tunnel that let them off maybe 3 blocks away. Well one of my friends asked me if I wanted to go and I said no, I didn't know anything about it and once you're out, you must stay until morning. One day I went with my friend who wanted to have his laundry done and on the way we passed where the guys went and I saw some of the women there, they had black teeth from chewing beetle nut. They didn't look like anyone who I'd want to be with.
Well when we got to the place where he was going, it was a make shift hutch and it was filthy, the guy inside was drinking from a cup that had crud on it and the kid was running around all full of crap and I was hoping that he wouldn't come by me. My friend asked me if I wanted a soda, to which I replied, no. He said it's sealed in a bottle and I said no again. I asked him where will they wash his cloths, he pointed to a large puddle outside on the ground. I said, I'd never let them do mine, I wash my own.
I was in the 1st of the 1st Air Calv in Camp Eagle with the Screaming Eagles and we had a Warrant Officer who was the pilot and he was as stoned as we were and he used to do cool things with the Chopper. We sat with our feet hanging out of the side of it and one day we had some fun with the people in a boat fishing. The pilot came down just over the boat and we through a smoke grenade and all this red smoke came out and they were frozen and didn't know what to do. There was a long waiting list of guys that wanted to get hooked to a rope hanging from the chopper while stoned. The guys that jumped told me that they did it stoned and they wouldn't do it any other way. They said that when they were on the way down, everything was in slow motion and that gave them time to see the enemy and pick them off. But when they jumped in the night, some times they would fall into a tree. Any ways, when I was discharged, Woodstock was going on, but there was no way to get there, the roads were blocked for miles. I went to Central Park and had my first trip on Sunshine and the Jefferson Airplane was playing in open sight. The trip made them look so cool. I was able to handle acid because of all the grass, Opium and ups that I took. The grass gave me the slow knowledge and the ups gave me the fast knowledge, but then the Acid got me to where it's at, over to the other side, you know like Move Over Rover and let Jimi take over or Baby you can drive my car. But you know that you have to give it up if you're gonna go somewhere. It's like the Stone's say; Jumping Jack Flash; It's the gas, gas, gas, and in this life, we were made to go. But if you're interested, I may see you in the White Room, where we can depart from the Station. I hope you are up for the ride. I left a lot of road behind me here at 75, but I'm still here if you have trouble finding the door. Yeah, I put sounds together; get it "To Get Her", Wow and I did and that's what I'm really here to say in my lyrics, but you may know that some trip and some trip over. Yeah we got through that winter only to see you in the fall. So now we can scrape up what's left to be right when we're going wrong. The Cream said that; We're Going Wrong, so Hip Up! But don't get to far away from the light tower to the point of no return. You know it may be the system but it's still the glue, like the song; stuck on you, she talks but won't let me in, but I keep on knocking, so let me know when you're there, but now the whistle is blowing and I have some where to be, working on my way out of the circle, but before I go, there's just one thing I want to know. Everything may be fine and dandy, but do you want some candy. So here I am again, raising cane. I did it for a year and lost it for three, like the song Wipe Out, but I still say; give me a woman, make her 10 feet tall. I always wanted to know how someone so young could be so old, so I tried it. And while MJ did his Jig Saw Puzzle, this is what I saw. You really want to know, don't you? So you really had to go and do it, and so you got me here going again. But you know that there's a lot of pain, when you know and find that you can't un-know and have to live with it. Do you have what it takes to break on through to the other side, or are you another one to not make it up the bean stalk? You know what they say; One mans ceiling is another mans floor, but if you make it on up to my door, you'll find it open, so happy tripping baby, and it's a bye, bye baby, cause your body is your anchor back to no more, so this is the end my friend and all they give is the wall, so get tall.
