from Oannes * tribute to «cosmic» songs
Εναπόθεση ελπίδων σε εναλλακτικούς μεσσίες – επισκέπτες απ’ το διάστημα από τον Roger Waters, σε ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου τραγούδια των Pink Floyd.
Από το δεύτερό τους άλμπουμ – πρώτο χωρίς τον Barrett. Παρά τη λατρεία μου για τον τελευταίο, το A Saucerful Of Secrets μου είναι [ακόμα] πιο αρεστό από το θρυλικό τους ντεμπούτο.
Placing hopes on alternative messiahs – visitors from space by Roger Waters, in one of my favorite Pink Floyd songs.
From their second album – first after Barrett’s “departure”. Despite my adoration for the latter, A Saucerful Of Secrets is [even] more likable to me than their legendary debut.
❝ Far, far, far away, way
People heard him say, say
Something will be done
Then at last the mighty ship
Descending on a point of flame
Made contact with the human race
And melted hearts
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 Hereward the Wake
Oh, my, something in the sky, sky
Something in my eye, eye
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
Summoning his cosmic powers
And glowing slightly from his clothes
His psychic emanations flowed ❞
As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !
