A recurring dream where I run for hours through the desert in a peaceful, non-tiring lope, With Cactus people willing me on my way... and the answer to the Mescalin Q. is no.

Story behind the song
From a lyric written a few minutes after waking from a dream. Cactus people are very friendly & polite BTW.
Lyrics
Cactus Man 1. Well I’m standing here looking like a Cactus Man One arm up and the other arm down Getting ready to run into the night When the desert sun begins to fail I step onto the Old Spanish Trail And there’ll be no stoppin’ until the morning light Chorus: I can’t help myself ‘cos every night when I drop off to sleep I become a Cactus Man and then I go in deep I’ve never been near a desert and I’ve no desire to run But every night, I’m a Cactus Man, at the fading of the sun 2. Out here I know exactly who I am The Cactus trees help me understand I’m running for them and I’m running for me Although they never speak or make a sound They feel my motion underground I have no roots and my running sets them free Chorus: I can’t help myself ‘cos every night when I drop off to sleep I become a Cactus Man and then I go in deep I’ve never been near a desert and I’ve no desire to run But every night, I’m a Cactus Man, at the fading of the sun Bridge: But the funny thing is I find it kind of peaceful Surrounded by the silence of the night I don’t believe that I would care for any other kind of dream I’m a Cactus Man and man it feels just right Chorus: I can’t help myself ‘cos every night when I drop off to sleep I become a Cactus Man and then I go in deep I’ve never been near a desert and I’ve no desire to run But every night, I’m a Cactus Man, at the fading of the sun Yeah, every night I’ll be a Cactus Man, until my race is run
