Departure
Graeme Edge
Alternate Mix


Be it sight, sound, smell or 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 oak 
With roots deep in the ground

The wonder of flowers to be covered
And then to burst up
Through tarmac 
To the sun again

Or to fly to the sun 
Without burning a wing
To lie in a meadow 
And hear the grass sing

To have all these things 
In our memories hoard
And to use them
To help us 
To find...
...........

The Best Way To Travel
Mike Pinder
Additional Vocal Mix


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 a 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 began, will we 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

Legend Of A Mind
Ray Thomas
Alternate Mix


Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, no
He's outside looking in

Timothy Leary's dead
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
He's outside looking in

Timothy Leary's dead
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

He'll fly his astral plane
He'll take you trips around the bay
He'll bring you back the same day

Visions Of Paradise
Justin Hayward and Ray Thomas
Instrumental Version

What Am I Doing Here
Justin Hayward
Original Version


Pale the young squire who goes to fight 
To die at his master's side 
Living is just a dream inside 
You ask me why he cried:
What am I doin' here?
What am I doin' here?

Beautiful princess, fair and pale 
Stares out across the sea 
Alone in her castle dark and grey 
Her love she'll never see 
What am I doin' here?
What am I doin' here?

Tenderly bury the fair young dead 
Place a wooden cross at his head 
All the words you can say have been said 
It's for you my tears are shed 

What can be done, you won't believe 
Listen and you may see 
Everyone's dream is deep within 
Find it and you'll be free 
What am I doin' here?
What am I doin' here?

Tenderly bury the fair young dead 
Place a wooden cross at his head 
All the words you can say have been said 
It's for you my tears are shed 

Tenderly bury the fair young dead 
Place a wooden cross at his head 
All the words you can say have been said 
It's for you my tears are shed 

The Word
Graeme Edge
Mellotron Mix


This garden universe vibrates complete
Some, we get a sound so sweet

Vibrations reach on up to become light
And then through gamma, out of sight

Between the eyes and ears there lie
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 ultraviolet, infrared and X-rays
Beauty to find in so many ways

Two notes of the chord, that's our poor scope
But to reach the chord is our life's hope

And to name the chord is important to some
So they give it a word, and the word is...

OM
Mike Pinder
Extended Version


OM

The rain is on the roof
Hurry high, butterfly
As clouds roll past my head
I know why the skies 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 says?

OM 
OM
Heaven
OM

The rain is on the roof
Hurry high, butterfly
As clouds roll past my head
I know why the skies all cry

OM 
OM
Heaven
OM

A Simple Game
Mike Pinder
Justin Hayward Vocal Mix


As time goes by you will see 
That we're going to be free 
You and me, we'll touch the sky 
Can you see in your mind's eye?
That we are one 
We're all the same 
And life is just a simple game 

There, by your side, I will be 
When this crazy world is free 
Free from doubt 
When it finds out 
Exactly what we're meant to be 
That we are one 
We're all the same 
And life is just a simple game 

Thoughts of another day 
Flashing through my head 
Thinking how life could be 
All of the things that our great men have said 
Be what we want to be 
What we deserve to be 
What we are meant to be 

As time goes by, you will see 
That we're going to be free 
You and me, we'll touch the sky 
Can you see in your mind's eye?
That we are one 
We're all the same 
And life is just a simple game 

We're gonna be free 
Oohhh, gonna be free 
Gonna be free 
Free, gonna be free, gonna be free, Oohhh 

King And Queen
Justin Hayward
1968 Studio Recording


It's like awaking from a dream 
All I remember is a lullaby 
I couldn't tell you where I've been 
A thousand images just flutter by 

Takin' my time in a white limousine 
If I was the King, she'd be my Queen 

And my thoughts are growing louder 
And my mind has lost its way 
And the flames are getting higher everyday 

My mind is back behind my eyes 
And there before me sits a butterfly 
And as I watch, she gently cries 
Can there be anyone who'll pity her? 
How many faces have all of you been? 
If I was the King She'd be my Queen 

And my thoughts are getting louder 
And my mind has lost its way 
And the flames are getting higher everyday 

My mind is back behind my eyes 
And there before me sits a butterfly 
And as I watch, she gently cries 
Can there be anyone who'll pity her? 
How many faces have all of you been? 
If I was the King, she'd be my Queen 

And my thoughts are getting louder 
And my mind has lost its way 
And the flames are getting higher ev'ry day 
And the flames are getting higher ev'ry day 
And the flames are getting higher ev'ry day 

Dr. Livingstone, I Presume
Ray Thomas
BBC Sessions: "Top Gear"


Doctor Livingstone, 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 Sail 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

Voices In The Sky
Justin Hayward
BBC Sessions: "Top Gear"

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

Thinking Is The Best Way To Travel
Mike Pinder
BBC Sessions "Top Gear"


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 began, will we 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

Ride My See-Saw
John Lodge
BBC Sessions: "Top Gear"


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


Ahhh
Ahhh
Ahhh

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

Tuesday Afternoon
Justin Hayward
BBC Sessions: "Afternoon Pop Show"


Tuesday afternoon
I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away

Something calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh

I'm looking at myself 
Reflections of my mind
It's just the kind of day 
To leave myself behind
So gently swaying 
Through the fairy-land of love
If you'll just come with me 
And see the beauty of

Tuesday afternoon
Tuesday afternoon

Tuesday, afternoon
I'm just beginning to see
Now I'm on my way
It doesn't matter to me
Chasing the clouds away

Something calls to me
The trees are drawing me near
I've got to find out why
Those gentle voices I hear
Explain it all with a sigh
