"You" (1974)

    Words by Daevid Allen, Music by Gong

    If you want to fly, if you want to become a star, a superhero
    You could try the ascension of the great pyramid of life
    Counting again and again from one to nine
    Approaching and pushing away infinity - O sweet absurdity!
    But if you prefer that old silly number zero
    You'll become a master of doing nothing - being nothing

    Words by Daevid Allen, Music by Gong

    In case you don't remember, this is what you do
    Get up out of bed now
    If there's nothing left to
    Find the answer to - here is...
    Question number one

    If you're a believer... what do you believe?
    Why do you believe it?
    Don't you ever wonder if it's really true?
    Do you? Question number two
    Really... that's the mystery

    Let a pothead pixie show you what to do
    And this is what he'll tell you...
    If you got a problem to know who you are
    Here now this is what you do
    You are me
    I am you
    All of us together
    Now go...

    Words by Daevid Allen, Music by Gong

    MA-I MA-O
    TA-I TA-O NOW...

    Q: Master Builder, tell me how you make a temple?
    A: Tools and moon stones, you don't really need them, you know...
    Q: Master Builder, tell me what the temple's made of?
    A: Deep inside you, you can build an invisible temple in your own imagination if you will

    Words by Daevid Allen, Music by Gong

    It's a perfect mystery
    How becomes a tree a tree
    But there's something telling me
    That nothing is for nothing is for
    Nothing is for only one lifetime
    Learning to be

    Cops at the door
    No cops at the door
    Cops at the door
    No cops at the door

    What a surprise!
    She looked in the cupboard
    And found the eyes
    In the suitcase

    On the Isle of Everywhere
    It becomes a man to share
    All and everything he cares for
    Everyone is everybody else
    Is slowly melting themselves
    Together again

    Look up in the air
    The Octave Doctor's there!
    And when he strokes his gong
    Your middle eye comes on

    What a surprise!
    She looked around for Zero
    But he'd lost his eyes
    In a fruitcake

    Music by Gong

    O spirit... wind... I love you...

    Words by Daevid Allen, Music by Gong

    Zero... Where are you?...
    Don't you remember why you came to Everywhere?...
    The piece of mind that you came to find has disappeared ...
    For all that you could take was piece of cake and wine ...
    And now you'll have to wait another time ...

    Maybe you're here for the giggle
    Maybe you're into the puzzle
    Maybe you're blowing the bubble
    Maybe you're all in a muddle

    The more you know
    The more you know
    You don't know what you know
    Stone's throw left to go
    Bad weather hell for leather
    Now and zen you goof again
    You never blow your trip forever

    Earth mother soul brother
    Be high here now
    Third eye open soon
    Meanwhile new world group soul
    Lost and found underground
    Next time round

    A real weird number
    Is Zero the man
    Because he a turnin on
    Round & round again
    They say he'll never make it
    But I think he can

    There's a hold in the morning
    It's the hole that he was born in
    Now the old man's yawnin ...

    It's the world of illusions
    And Zero the Hero
    Is up to his ears
    In the mysteries ...
    No solution to speak of ...
    Around & round & round &
    Round & round
    That's Zero going round again ...

    And maybe you come
    And maybe you're gone
    And maybe you're right
    And maybe you're wrong
    Maybe you're a one
    And maybe you two
    And maybe you're free
    And dunno what for
    Just as long as you're alive
    It's all the same
    It's all in the name
    It's all in the sky and
    It doesn't really matter
    If you make it
    So long as you try

    So its back on the path
    Beside the road to everywhere
    Gonna jump my horses
    Over the weeks to everywhere
    And with you we will share
    Your sack of cares ...

    And if things don't change for
    Better or worse
    Well man you must be dead
    But you don't have to give up hope
    And you don't have to give up dope (until you do)
    And you don't have to change your ways
    You just have to be what you are my friends today ...
    That's what the Octave Doctor says ...

    So there goes Zero the Hero
    Turning on around the wheel of births and deaths
    And meanwhile the Octave Doctors
    And the Pot Head Pixies
    And all the other characters of the Planet Gong
    Have to leave you now with a last little song

    - + - + - + -

    Why don't you...?
    Why don't you try?...

    You are I or I am you
    You I am or I am you
    You am I or am I you
    You are Maya Ram are you
    You are my Hiram are you
    You am I or I am you
    You are Maya I am you
    You am I as I are you
    You are Maya's eye are you
    You are I or I am you
