13th FLOOR ELEVATORS “Don’t Fall Down" (1966)
And all of a sudden everyone started glowing. They had a foot of light, like a neon light around them in the room… real bright. And I freaked out, I thought that our band was evil because of some of the things we had advocated. We had a controversy going on quite a while about advocating drugs and so forth, and mixing it with religion, you know. And I freaked out, I was trying to escape the room, and everybody turned into wolves. I couldn’t move my body anymore. I lost physical feeling all over and I was laying on the floor. And everybody turned into angels, and everybody in the room was the judge at my trial to decide whether I was worthy to enter heaven or hell. Because it was absolute that I was going to die anyway you know.
