***official lyrics***

Open the gate to the red land
Alcan road, by the turquoise lake
Starry skies, a mushroom cloud
Folding waves-in a foamy tide
Washing in beds-of opal shells
white gulls cry-for you and I
butterflies-float away
drift over pools-of salt and clay
mountain man--frosted child
eagles cry-puppets of god
strung like time-molded in form
trees bend back-and trails distort
it leads to the land-of Alcan Road
the turquoise lake-and starry skies
mushroom clouds--folding waves
foamy tides-of salt and brine
