Departure
(Graeme Edge)

Be it sight, sound, the smell, the touch.
There's something,
Inside that we need so much,
The sight of a touch, or the scent of a sound,
Or the strength of an arquebus deep in the ground.
The wonder of flowers, to be covered, 
and then to burst up,
Thru tarmack, to the sun again,
Or to fly to the sun without burning a wing,
To lie in the meadow and hear the grass sing,
To have all these things in our memories hoard,
And to use them,
To help us,
To find...

Ride My See-Saw (John Lodge) Ride, ride my see-saw, Take this place On this trip Just for me. Ride, take a free ride, Take my place Have my seat It's for free. I worked like a slave for years, Sweat so hard just to end my fears. Not to end my life a poor man, But by now, I know I should have run. Run, run my last race, Take my place Have this number Of mine. Run, run like a fire, Don't you run in In the lanes Run for time. Left school with a first class pass, Started work but as second class. School taught one and one is two. But right now, that answer just ain't true. Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah ah Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah ah My world is spinning around, Everything is lost that I found. People run, come ride with me, Let's find another place that's free. Ride, ride my see-saw, Take this place On this trip Just for me. Ride, take a free ride, Take my place Have my seat It's for free. Ride, my see-saw. Ride, ride, ride, my see-saw. Ride, my see-saw...
Dr. Livingston, I Presume (Ray Thomas) Doctor Livingston, I presume, Stepping out of the jungle gloom Into the midday sun. What did you find there? Did you stand awhile and stare? Did you meet anyone? 'I've seen butterflies galore, I've seen people big and small, I've still not found what I'm looking for.' We're all looking for someone. We're all looking for someone. We're all looking for someone. Captain Scott, you were so bold, Now you're looking rather cold Out there in the snow. What did you find there? Did you stand awhile and stare? Did you meet anyone? 'I've seen polar bears and seals, I've seen giant Antarctic eels, I've still not found what I'm looking for.' We're all looking for someone. We're all looking for someone. We're all looking for someone. Columbus, where are you bound? So you think the world is round. Sailed off in the blue. What did you find there? Did you stand awhile and stare? Did you meet anyone? 'There are Indians by the score In many places that I saw. I've still not found what I'm looking for.' We're all looking for someone. We're all looking for someone. We're all looking for someone.
House Of Four Doors (John Lodge) Mystery spead it's cloak Across the sky We'd lost our way Shadows fell from trees They knew why Then thru the leaves a light broke thru A path lost for years lead us thru House of four doors I could live there forever House of four doors Would it be there forever? Lonliness, the face of pilgrims eyes was known As the door opened wide Beauty they had found before my eyes to see To the next door we came Love of music showed in everything we heard Thru the third door where are we? Enter in all ye who seek to find within As the plaque said on the last door
Legend Of A Mind (Ray Thomas) Timothy Leary's dead. No, no, no, no, He's outside looking in. Timothy Leary's dead. No, no, no, no, He's outside looking in. He'll fly his astral plane, Takes you trips around the bay, Brings you back the same day, Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary's dead. No, no, no, no, He's outside looking in. Timothy Leary's dead. No, no, no, no, He's outside looking in. He'll fly his astral plane, Takes you trips around the bay, Brings you back the same day, Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary. Along the coast you'll hear them boast About a light they say that shines so clear. So raise your glass, we'll drink a toast To the little man who sells you thrills along the pier. He'll take you up, he'll bring you down, He'll plant your feet back firmly on the ground. He flies so high, he swoops so low, He knows exactly which way he's gonna go. Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary. He'll take you up, he'll bring you down, He'll plant your feet back on the ground. He'll fly so high, he'll swoop so low. Timothy Leary. He'll fly his astral plane. He'll take you trips around the bay. He'll bring you back the same day. Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary. Timothy Leary.

House Of Four Doors (Part 2)
(John Lodge) 

Walking thru that door
Outside we came
Nowhere at all
Perhaps the answers here
Not there anymore

Then in our hearts the light broke thru
A path lost for years is there in view
House of four doors
You'll be lost now forever
House of four doors
Rest of life's life forever.
House of four doors
You'll be lost now forever
House of four doors
Rest of life's life forever.

Voices In The Sky (Justin Hayward) Bluebird, flying high Tell me what you sing If you could talk to me What news would you bring Of voices in the sky Nightingale, hovering high Harmonize the wind Darkness, your symphony I can hear you sing Of voices in the sky Just what is happening to me I lie awake with the sound of the sea Calling to me Old man, passing by Tell me what you sing Though your voice be faint I am listening Voices in the sky Children with a skipping rope Tell me what you sing Play time is nearly gone The bell's about to ring Voices in the sky Just what is happening to me I lie awake with the sound of the sea Calling to me Bluebird, flying high Tell me what you sing If you could talk to me What news would you bring Of voices in the sky Voices in the sky Voices in the sky Voices in the sky
The Best Way To Travel (Mike Pinder) And you can fly High as a kite if you want to Faster than light if you want to Speeding through the universe Thinking is the best way to travel It's all a dream Light passing by on the screen And there's you and I on the beam Speeding through the universe Thinking is the best way to travel We ride the waves Distance is gone, will we find out? How life bean, will be find out? Speeding through the universe Thinking is the best way to travel And you can fly High as a kite if you want to Faster than light if you want to Speeding through the universe Thinking is the best way to travel
Visions Of Paradise (Justin Hayward and John Lodge) The sounds in my mind just come to me Come see, come see And the call of her eyes makes waterfalls Of me, of me In the garden of her love I'll stay awhile To be, to be What the seeds of her thoughts once mean to me Come see, come see Visions of paradise, cloudless skies I see Rainbows on the hill, blue onyx on the sea Come see, ah, ah, ah And the sounds in my mind just come to me Come see, come see And the call of her eyes, makes waterfalls Of me, of me
The Actor (Justin Hayward) The curtain rises on the scene With someone shouting to be free The play unfolds before my eyes There stands the actor who is me The sleeping hours takes us far From traffic, telephones and fear Put out your problems with the cat Escape until a bell you hear Our reasons are the same But there's no-one we can blame For there's nowhere we need go And the only truth we know comes so easily The sound I have heard in your hello Oh, oh, darling, you're almost part of me Oh, oh, darling, you're all I'll ever see Ah, ah, ah It's such a rainy afternoon No point in going anywhere The sounds just drift across my room I wish this feeling I could share It's such a rainy afternoon She sits and gazes from her window Her mind tries to recall his face The feeling deep inside her grows Our reasons are the same But there's no-one we can blame For there's nowhere we need go And the only truth we know comes so easily The sound I have heard in your hello Oh, oh, darling, you're almost part of me Oh, oh, darling, you're all I'll ever see The sound I have heard in your hello Oh, oh, darling, you're all I'll ever see Oh, oh, darling, you're almost part of me Ah, ah, ah
The Word (Graeme Edge) This garden universe vibrates complete. Some we get a sound so sweet. Vibrations reach on up to become light, And then thru gamma, out of sight. Between the eyes and ears there lay, The sounds of colour and the light of a sigh. And to hear the sun, what a thing to believe. But it's all around if we could but perceive. To know ultra-violet, infra-red and X-rays, Beauty to find in so many ways. Two notes of the chord, that's our fluoroscope. But to reach the chord is our lifes hope. And to name the chord is important to some. So they give a word, and the word is OM.
OM (Mike Pinder) The rain is on the roof Hurry high butterfly As clouds roll past my head I know why the skys all cry OM, OM, Heaven, OM The Earth turns slowly round Far away the distant sound Is with us everyday Can you hear what it say OM, OM, Heaven, OM The rain is on the roof Hurry high butterfly As clouds roll past my head I know why the skys all cry OM, OM, Heaven, OM
