"Circle Sky" as written by and Michael Nesmith....
Circle sky
Telling lies
Here I stand
At demand

'Cause it looks like we've made it once again
Yes, it looks like we've made it once again

Color sound
Is all around
Wing-tipped smile
Sees for miles

And it looks like we've made it once again
Yes, it looks like we've made it once again

It's a very extraordinary scene
To those who don't understand
But what you have seen you must believe
If you can, if you can

Hamilton
Smiling down
Telling more
Than before

And it looks like we've made it once again
Yes, it looks like we've made it to the end

    My OpinionThe ballsiest song the Monkees ever did, IMO. Also the most thinly veiled song Michael Nesmith wrote about the trappings of fame.

    The scene in Head where they play this song to screaming fans and then are literally ripped apart, revealing them as mannequins, is disturbing enough without the inserted imagery of violence from Vietnam, but it's a great juxtaposition of what matters and what doesn't.

    Either way, the song itself is an asskicker.
