Syd Barrett: It is Obvious

Syd Barrett-It is Obvious

Leadhead444 | June 06, 2010

It is obvious 
may I say, oh baby, that it is found on another plane? 
Yes I can creep into cupboards, sleep in the hall 
your stars - my stars, a simple cock bar 
only an impulse - pie in the sky 
mumble listen dolly 
drift over your mind - holly 
creep into bed when your head's on the ground 
she held the torch on the porch, 
she winked an eye 

Reason it is written on the brambles 
stranded on the spikes - my blood red, oh listen: 
remember those times I could call 
through the clear day 
time - be there... 
braver and braver, a handkerchief waver 
the louder you lips to a loud hailer 
growing together, they ('re) growing each either 
no wondering, stumbling, fumbling 
rumbling minds shot together, 
our minds shot together... 

So equally over a valley, a hill 
wood on quarry stood, each of us crying 
a velvet curtain of gray 
mark the blanket where the sparrows play 
and the trees by the waving corn stranded 
my legs move the last empty inches to you 
the softness, the warmth from the weather in suspense 
mote to a grog - the star a white chalk 
minds shot together, our minds shot together...

Always dug this song... Thanks for printing out the words... Reading them by themselves makes one appreciate this on a different level...
