You can't always get what you want

The old Indians didn't have no books like the Bible. They didn't have no writing or no books like the white people to read and write what they believe. Indians just think and tell what they believe. But Peyote is like a Bible to us here. Peyote is our Bible. When I'm with this Herb sometimes It is like a turning pages in a book. I want to know something, and I can turn to here, and here, and there...everything is in there. It is like that with Peyote. So I think white people got one kind of book and we got another kind.
