Thoughts For Naught

If you want to fly,
if you want to become a star
a superhero
You could try the ascension of the great pyramid of life
Counting again and again from one to nine
Approaching and pushing away infinity - O sweet absurdity!
But if you prefer that old silly number zero
You'll become a master of doing nothing - being nothing

A P.H.P.'s Advice

In case you don't remember, this is what you do
Get up out of bed now
If there's nothing left to
Find the answer to - here is...
Question number one

If you're a believer...
what do you believe ?
Why do you believe it ?
Doncha ever wonder...
If it's really true...
Do you ? Question number two
Really... that's the mystery

Let a pothead pixie tell you what to do
And this is what he'll tell you...
If you gotta problem
to know who you are
Here now
this is what you do
You are me
I am you
all of us together
now go

Master Builder


Q: Master Builder, tell me how you make a temple ?
A: Tools and moon stones,
you don't really need them, you know...
Q: Master Builder, tell me what the temple's made of ?
A: Deep inside you,
you can build an invisible temple in your own imagination
if you will

Perfect Mystery

It's a perfect mystery
how becomes a tree a tree
but there's something telling me
nothing is for nothing is for
nothing is for only one lifetime
learning to be

Cops at the door
No cops at the door
Cops at the door
No cops at the door

What a surprise!
She looked in the cupboard
and found the eyes
in the suitcase

On the Isle of Everywhere
it becomes a man to share
all and everything he cares for
everyone is everybody else is
slowly melting themselves
together again

Look up in the air
The Octave Doctor's there!
And when he strokes his gong
Your middle eye comes on

What a surprise!
She looked around for Zero
But he'd lost his eyes
In a fruitcake

The Isle Of Everywhere

O spirit... wind... I love you...

hava a cuppa tea
cuppa hubba dubba
didn't you forget something
roll another brother
maybe you forgot someone
a bit a'cake
yum yum
haven't you forgotten
have another drink
have a larger!
wot did we forget let's see...
yea yea!
Wot's the scene today?
you know the Octave Doc...
when's he commin momma?
...wot's the time
don't know
WE better ask
have another lager
Where has everybody
Gong! I hear the Gong!
wait a minute man
hey! We missed the Buzz...
Oh No!

You Never Blow Yr Trip Forever

Where are you ...
doncha remember why you came to Everywhere...
The piece of mind that
you came to find has dis-appeared ...
for all that you could take
was piece of cake and wine ...
and now you'll have to wait
another time ...

maybe you're here for the giggle
maybe you're into the puzzle
maybe you're blowing the bubble
maybe you're all in a muddle

the more you know
the more you know you
don't know what you know
stone's throw left to go
bad weather hell for leather
now and zen you goof again
you never blow your trip forever

earth mother soul brother
be high here now
third eye open soon
meanwhile new world group soul
lost and found underground
next time round

a real weird number
is Zero the man
because he a turnin on
round & round again
they say he'll never make it
but I think he can

there's a hole in the morning
It's the hole that he was born in
now the old man's yawnin ...

It's the world of illusions
and Zero the Hero
is up to his ears
in the mysteries ...
No solution to speak of ...
round & round & round &
round & round
that's Zero going round again ...
And maybe you come
and maybe you're gone
and maybe you're right
and maybe you're wrong
maybe you're a one
and maybe you two
and maybe you're free
and dunno what for
just as long as you're alive
it's all the same
it's all in the name
it's all in the sky and
it doesn't really matter
if you make it
so long as you try
So it's back on the path
beside the road to everywhere
gonna jump my horses
over the weeks to everywhere
and with you we will share
your sack of cares ...
and if things don't change for
better or worse
well man you must be dead
but cha don't have to give up hope
and ya don't have to give up dope (until you do)
and ya don't have to change your ways
you just
have to
be what you are my friends
today ...
that's what the Octave Doctor says ...

So there goes Zero the Hero
Turning on around the wheel of births and deaths
And meanwhile the Octave Doctors
and the Pot Head Pixies and
all the other characters of
the Planet Gong hafta to leave you now
with a last little song

Why don't you...
Why don't you try...

You are I or I am you
You I am or I am you
You am I or am I you
You are Maya Ram are you
You are my Hiram are you
You am I or I am you
You are Maya I am you
You am I as I are you
You are Maya's eye are you
You are I or I am you
