"Let There Be More Light" as written by and Roger Waters....
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
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

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
The psychic and the nations fly

    General Commentwrong lyrics as usual:
    ---
    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 (UK historical place)
    Now now now is the time time
    time to be be be aware

    Carter's Father saw it there
    And knew the Rhull revealed to him
    The living soul of Hereword, the Wake (UK literary/historical refernces)



    Oh my, something in my eye, eye
    something in the sky
    waiting there for me

    The outer lock rolled slowly back
    the servicemen where heard to cry
    For there revealed in flowing robes
    Was Lucy in the Sky

    Oh oh did you ever know?
    No, no never will they, Ill say!
    Summoning in his cosmic powers
    and glowing slightly from his toes
    The psychic emanations-fly

    General CommentSeashellz's re-post has the right lyrics.

    For the meaning of this song, all I can do is speculate. It is an amazing song, off one of of Floyd's most amazing and underrated albums. The song seems to be about aliens (or possibly angels, or simply the combined concept) bringing revalation to the human race. The "Him" referred to may be a form of alien, angel, or perhaps saviour (I hesitate to say "God" because of its Christian implications). I do agree that "t'was Lucy in the sky" has LSD connotations. With no specualtion, it is clear that it is about revalation brought to humans. Whether by drugs, aliens, or divines, as usually Floyd has left it up to the listener to decide.

    General Commenta friend of mine and i replayed the riff over and over with placebo's 'taste in men'; discovering only very slight differences, quite amazing... we also discovered the sun was out and a day of doing something constructive was possible...

    General CommentSomeone please explain to me why Demau Senae hasn't been banned from submitting lyrics yet. This kid has the worst hearing of anyone I've ever known, and yet he's submitted thousands of completely wrong lyrics to the site.

    General CommentAbsolutely love this piece, from the guitar at the beginning down to the very last second. I would indeed agree it goes with the theory that, even in a non-scientific manner, most hallucinogens/psychotics were accepted to put you more in-tune with the universe. Granted, I've never taken them, and have very little, if any, intent on ever doing so, but from observing others' experiences with them, and the general notion of increased vividity and "connection", I think it's fairly reasonable that this song would be something along those lines.

    P.S. Thanks to seashellz for the corrected lyrics; however, only one thing that was right in the first lyrics posting is that the "...servicemen were heard to sigh", not "cry".
