Lyrics pending for the remaining parts

Pt. 1 (instrumental)

Pt. 1 backwards (instrumental)

Pt. 2 (instrumental)

Pt. 3:
Person 1: I don't mean to sound like a snob, but that man, worrying about his car, you know what I mean, he's not alive. If you can do what you say, why don't you wake him up.
Person 2: Just tell me what happened.
Person 1: You could ask him, but he couldn't tell you. That''s the point, isn't it? He couldn't tell you.
Person 2: Can you tell me?
Person 1: I can tell you this. In that car there was nothing, see, nothing, just talk. It's fair to say, isn't it, that a man like that doesn't think. He doesn't really feel. He goes through the motions of being human because nobody told him different.
Person 2: Look, you may be the best surgeon in town, but you're not making yourself very clear. What...
Person 1: Oh, hey
Person 2: ...doesn't he think?
Person 1: OK, for all I know he might be a very clever and successful person.
Person 2: Successful in whose terms?
Person 1: In our terms.
Person 2: His terms don't matter?
Person 1: Yes, in some sense they don't matter. I know that sounds awful, I probably don't even mean it. Maybe I have the whole thing wrong. The only thing to do is to try to make things better.
Person 2: In whose terms?
Person 1: Look, I'd like to explain to you about that guy. He's enclosed in himself. He's goes on and on, I get the feeling that he just isn't concerned. Concerned with other people. I mean, everything else is a matter of taste, a matter of opinion. But if anyone can live on this earth and not care about other people.
Person 2: So you cut his head off. The thing you really seem to hold against him is typified by what you did to him.
Person 1: I did nothing to him. He's okay. I put it back on. The head, I mean.
Person2: His head.
Person 1: Yeah, I put the right head back on. In that car I was suffocating. Not just there, lots of times. We're helpless really. You as well.
Person 2: If we are helpless, then we are not responsible. But there is a difference between things. I can hold my breath, but my blood flows regardless.
Person 1: You can hold your breath for a little while, but if you stop the blood flowing, that's for good.

Part 4. (to be continued whenever I get a chance)

    General CommentSorry guys, I will post actual lyrics soon. But if anyone knows the song, go ahead and comment anyway. It can be found on A Tree Full of Secrets, which I think can only be obtained bootleg, but it also has King Bee, Lucy Leave, Scream Thy Last Scream, and Vegetable Man, as well as Nick's Boogie, Fingal's Cave, Oenone, a really crappy version of Seabirds, and maybe something else as well. It can be found on (not sure about the .com, but I think it's right).

    General CommentAt least no one seems to be looking at this song right now, but if any of you are, lyrics should be up by Saturday (May 12th, I think).

    General CommentI really need more free time to work on this. Sorry if I'm keeping anybody waiting. Lyrics should be up sometime.

    Pink Floyd didn't write the lyrics, just the music.

    General CommentSome day, I might finish this. But be warned, for the next six to seven weeks, I will have a grand total of one day that I can use to work on this, and I will probably make better use of my time. However, I solemnly swear that I will get this finished if I ever take the time to.

    General CommentOh, and other people could post as well, it doesn't just have to be me, updating you on when installments are coming. For example, you could tell me that you really don't care about the lyrics, and then I wouldn't waste my time posting them. Or, you could help me out by posting some of the lyrics yourself, and then I would check them and add them to what I have already done, which would save me a lot of time and you a lot of exasperation.

    General CommentThe music is by Pink Floyd, for some film (I'm not sure which one, not More, La Vallee [OBC], or Zabriskie Point). The dialogue is from the movie, and it is insane.

    You can obtain the eight versions of the song on
    for very low prices.

    One of the versions (7, I think, but maybe six), is essentially Careful With That Axe, Eugene, but without the screaming or vocals and with dialogue on top.

    If you buy the song on, you even get part 1 (a whopping 36 seconds) forwards and backwards (though I think the one labeled backwards is actually the one that goes forwards).

    General CommentI've heard this is basically the same of Careful With That Axe, Eugene, which is one of my all time favourites. I really want this.. Any idea of where to get A Treeful Of Secrets? Does it have any other names? It's not on the neptune pink floyd torrent tracker, where I get all my Floyd bootlegs. I guess I could use that, but I want that bootleg..
