I wanna tell you 'bout Texas Radio and the Big Beat
Comes out of the Virginia swamps
Cool and slow with plenty of precision
With a back beat narrow and hard to master

Some call it heavenly in it's brilliance
Others, mean and rueful of the...

    Jim Morrison with The Doors song that starts with the Mexico-Texas ''border blasters'' radio wars, during a time when ''Wolfman Jack'' started and used a radio station on the Mexican side of the border as being the Howling Wolf salesman to tell and sale fairie tales over the country on both sides of the border to use and sell all kinds of things over the airwaves. A time when he even got Big bucks from Protestant evangelical preachers for reagular spots to use the airwaves to sell Bibles and religion along with rock and roll music. Wolfman and the radio station made Big bucks, but not benefiting in no way the Catholic Mexican authority figures who eventually stopped them and moved them out of the area. The rest of this song works itself backwards in time to remember and reveal the westward dream going south and west by ''The Wasp''[s] war that was pushed into Mexico where the Pharaoh[s] died from escaping Egypt thousands of years ago from the ''foreign invaders'' that trampled the lands of his[their] past home that was built in the form of a ''heaven on earth'' in Egypt, but again history repeated itself with the new cycle of time in Mexico to trampled their decendants [the original American Indians] again along with their lost African Brothers that became slaves in ''the forests of azure'' Where now ''out here on the perimeter there are no stars''--''out here we is stoned immaculate''. Anotherwords here on this new land there are no more gods again of the heavinly stars as became in Egypt at one time, here their souls became and becoming the living stones as ''stoned immaculate'' to see them in the Dawn of the Mourning blue and purple twilight that was left behind over the azured villagers, while the wandering madman conquered with their raw iron souls and pushing their western dream like a ''drunken guillotine''.
