"It Is Obvious" as written by and Syd Barrett....
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

    General CommentCorrect lyric is

    are simple cot bars

    through the clear daytime and you'd be there

    braver and braver a hankerchief waverer
    the louder your lips to that little loud hailer
    growing together for the good of each other
    a wandering fumbling stumbling rumbling
    our minds shot together, our minds shot together.

    hog to a grog

    The song is running backwards - they're getting together - our minds shot together is at the end, in the middle paragraph their splitting up & they're both falling apart and him into madness over it - our minds shot together. Shot through.

    The versions off the extended Opel are the only ones to do, take 5 is the saddest version of this the joint top saddest song ever, though take 3 is tough too.

    It's about flying with RyanAir and not even getting a seat.

    General CommentReason, it is written on the brambles,
    Stranded on the spikes, my blood READ:
    Oh, Listen"

    You see, it is 'my blood "read"', not "red" ...

    It's like the title of the song ... It Is Obvious!

    (The) Reason is obvious. In his blood, it is written: "Oh Listen!"

    General CommentMore thoughts on that: Reason is written on the brambles. His blood, stranded on the spikes, reads: "Oh Listen".

    Right, so with that clarification out of the way ...

    "Remember those times I could call through a clear daytime and you would be there."

    Perhaps the "you" in this sentence is Reason itself.

    The oppppsite of a "clear daytime" is a cloudy, or unclear, night.

    He remembers when he could excersize reason, at a time when his life, his mind, was clear and bright - but no more.
