"Have You Heard (Part 2)" as written by and Carmine/hitchings Appice....
Part 1
Now you know that you are real,
Show your friends that you and me
Belong to the same world,
Turned on to the same word,
Have you heard?
Now you know that you are free,
Living all your life at ease.
Each day has its always,
A look down life's hallways, doorways,
To lead you there.

[The Voyage]
Part 2
Now you know how nice it feels,
Scatter good seed in the fields.
Life's ours for the making,
Eternity's waiting, waiting,
For you and me.
Now you know that you are real,
Show your friends that you and me
Belong to the same world,
Turned on to the same word,
Have you heard?
Have you heard?
Have you heard?
Have you heard?
Have you heard?

    General CommentThis song is so good. On the Threshold of a Dream is in fact an amazing album and i'd say this section (Have You Heard Part 1, The Voyage, Have You Heard Part 2) is the best part along with conclusion of the album. I have no doubt as to whether this song is about acid. The Voyage is the trip and this is him looking back with his experience-partner whom he guided: "Now you know how nice it feels,"...eh eh eh? "Turned on to the same word,"...eh eh eh?...and I think it may actually be "turned on to the same WORLD," but I don't know. Amazing song from an amazing band.

    My InterpretationAgree with JuliaDreamer. Looking back on the experience, the tripper feels connected to all things, sharing how we "Belong to the same world," as the illusion of separateness melts away. Even though things appear as illusions, the tripper says we are nonetheless "Real" and that there is freedom in these realizations.

    In Part 2 the tripper tells us that the path revealed by the experience is through virtue: "scatter Good seed in the field." and that we can chose this path if we want: "Life's ours for the making." When he says "Eternity's waiting" he reveals his insight about patience and cosmic time scales that we don't ordinarily perceive (perhaps also this is a reference to rebirth). When the tripper urges "Show your friends that you and me..." he's saying that we should convey the experience of this freedom to others, that they too may live peaceful, harmonious lives. Finally, in the gentlest act of love, the tripper asks "Have you Heard?"
