Syd Barrett - Crazy Diamond
Crazy Diamond 26th April 1993
“It Is Obvious” (Take 3) (Barrett)
It is obvious
May I say, oh baby,
That it is found on another plane?
Yes I can creep into cupboards,
Even sleep in the hall
Your stars - my stars, a simple cot bars
Only an impulse - pie in the sky
Listen dolly drift over your mind - Holly
Creep into bed when your head's on the ground
The reason it is written on the brambles
Stranded on the spikes - my blood red, oh listen:
Remember those times I could call
Through the clear day time - and you'd be there.
Braver and braver, a handkerchief waver
The louder your lips to a loud hailer
Together, they grow to each either
On a wondering, stumbling, fumbling
Rumbling minds shot together,
Our minds shot together.
So equally over a valley, a hill, wood, and quarry
Stood each of us crying
A velvet curtain of gray
Mark the blanket where sparrows play
And the trees by the waving corn stranded
My legs move the last empty inches to you
The softness, the warmth from the weather in suspense
Mote to a grog - the star of white chalk
Minds shot together, our minds shot together.
This box set was a repackaging of The Madcap Laughs, Barrett, and Opel with various bonus tracks included at the end of each disc. All these bonus tracks were just different takes on previously released material. Nothing really new, but some songs had slightly different lyrics.
