"In the Land of Grey and Pink" as written by and Pye Hastings Richard Sinclair....
In the land of grey and pink where only boy-scouts stop to think
They'll be coming back again, those nasty grumbly grimblies
And they're climbing down your chimney, yes they're trying to get in
Come to take your money, isn't it a sin, they're so thin
They've black buckets in the sky, don't leave your dad in the rain
Cigarettes burn bright tonight, they'll all get washed down the drain

So we'll sail away for just one day to the land where the punk weed grows
Won't need any money, just fingers and your toes
And when it's dark our boat will park on a land of warm and green
Pick our fill of punk weed and smoke it till we bleed, that's all we'll need
While sailing back in morning light, we'll wash our teeth in the sea
And when the day gets really bright, we'll go to sea drinking tea

So we'll sail away for just one day to the land where the punk weed grows
Won't need any money, just fingers and your toes
And when it's dark our boat will park on a land of warm and green
Pick our fill of punk weed and smoke it till we bleed, that's all we'll need
They've black buckets in the sky, don't leave your dad in the rain
Cigarettes burn bright tonight, they'll all get washed down the drain

    General CommentWell, actually, it's not very prog, but it IS on a prog album, and it's amazing. A simple drug song, but one of the best written ones there is.

    General CommentRichard Sinclair once said that the song title came to him while watching the cloudy sunset from Herne Bay on the Kent coast. The rest of the lyrics? We can only guess.... ;-)

    Song MeaningI always thought he sang "Walburn green" instead of "warm and green" which is actually a type of weed!
    Although the lyrics here might make more sense actually :P
