"Brainstorm" as written by and Nik Turner....
Standing on the runway
Waiting for takeoff
I wanna fly
Wanna watch me flake off
I can't move 'cause
The man has a rake off
You gotta help me
Help me to shake off

This body of mine
I wanna get out of this void
(Body of mine) and I don't wanna be destroyed
(Body of mine) I don't wanna turn android
(Body of mine) You gotta help me avoid that

Brainstorm, here I go
Brainstorm, flying low
Brainstorm, I wanna miss it
Brainstorm, you'd bet I'd kiss it

I can't get no peace
Until I get into motion
Sign my release from
This planet's erosion
Paranoia police have
Sussed out my potion
You gotta help me or
There'll be an explosion

In this body of mine
I wanna get out of this void
(Body of mine) and I don't wanna be destroyed
(Body of mine) I don't wanna turn android
(Body of mine) You gotta help me avoid that

Brainstorm, here I go
Brainstorm, flying low
Brainstorm, I wanna miss it
Brainstorm, you'd bet I'd kiss it

I'm breaking up
I'm falling fast
I'm floati~ing aw~ay...

I can't get no peace
Until I get into motion
Sign my release from
This planet's erosion
Paranoia police have
Sussed out my potion
You gotta help me or
There'll be an explosion

In this body of mine
I wanna get out of this void
(Body of mine) and I don't wanna be destroyed
(Body of mine) I don't wanna turn android
(Body of mine) You gotta help me avoid that

Brainstorm, here I go
Brainstorm, flying low
Brainstorm, not gonna miss it
Brainstorm, you'd bet I'd kiss it

    General Comment"I can't move 'cause
    The man has a rake off"

    I thought this was 'I can't move 'cause the man let the brake off'?

    Which would fit in with the meaning of taking off in a spaceship. Great track. Hawkwind at their best.

    My OpinionOne of the definitive Hawkwind tracks and one of the first I heard back in the 70's. For me, Hawkwind 70-79 IS Hawkwind. I kinda lost interest after that - preferred Nik Turner's more recent 'Space Ritual' stuff with the early Hawkwind members. Love the pounding drums and the electronic warbling that sets it apart from the mainstream.
