  1. I listened to this group in the 70's. I love the use of the mellotron, whic predated the synthesizer. Very innovateive group. Right up there with Pink Floyd. Their sound is really astounding. Thanks for posting.

  2. You walk
    Surrounded by the stars
    For many days
    And you knock
    At the gates of night
    No answer

    But you walk in
    With your decrees
    And you go out
    With shaking knees
    A street-sweeper appears
    Makes your dusty feet clean
    Come and jump
    On my Are-You-Tired machine
    At sunrise

    You play your violin
    On Napoleon's nose
    A cop comes and says
    You're one of those
    But you jump
    Into the trumpet of a clown
    And you say to yourself
    Maybe I should leave this town?

    You walk
    Beside the twilight street
    Jewel of the town
    And you pass
    The make-up zoo
    Where hungry people meet

    They ask you
    And you give them
    All you need
    For a trip to the South
    Maybe you think
    What sort of idiot am I
    Without a bone in my mouth
    And you turn to the sunrise

    You see a famous face
    Behind a golden fence
    A voice sounds round the corner:
    "This is your very last chance!"
    But you laugh
    Like the son of a kangaroo
    I don't believe the TV screen!
    I don't believe you too!
