Let There Be More Light - Pink Floyd

Artist: Pink Floyd
Song: Let There Be More Light
Year: 1968
Album: Saucerful Of Secrets

Saucerful Of Secrets was the first Pink Floyd album I picked up on CD. It was a blind buy, as I was only familiar with the popular radio hits of the group at this point. As soon as I heard this coming out of the speakers, I was hooked.

Far, far, far away - way
People heard him say - say
I will find a way - way
There will come a day - day
Something will be done.

Then at last the mighty ship
Descending on a point of flame
Made contact with the human race
at Mildenhall

Now, now, now is the time - time
Time to be - be - be aware

Carter's father saw him there and
Knew the road revealed to him
The living soul of of Hereward the Wake
Oh, my, something in my eye - eye
Something in the sky - sky
Waiting there for me

The outer lock rolled slowly back
The service men were heard to sigh
For there revealed in glowing robes
Was Lucy in the sky

Oh - oh - did you ever know - know
Never ever will they
I cannot say

Something in his cosmic art
And glowing slightly from his toes
His psychic emanations flowed
