In the Beginning
Graeme Edge
Full Version

     First Man:
		I think...
		I think I am.
		Therefore I am!
		I think...

Establishment:	
		Of course you are, my bright little star...
		I've miles and miles of files
		Pretty files of your forefather's fruit
		And now to suit our great computer
		You're magnetic ink!

     First Man:	
		I'm more than that
		I know I am...
		At least, I think I must be

     Inner Man: 
		There you go, man
		Keep as cool as you can
		Face piles of trials with smiles
		It riles them to believe
		That you perceive
		The web they weave...
		And keep on thinking free

So Deep Within You
Mike Pinder
Full Version


Talk to me baby 
I want to sleep at night
My heart is heavy 
It's weighed down by the night
And now I'm lonely
I want to see the light
So deep within you

Cool wind is blowing 
Through your crazy hair
Warm colours flowing 
This feeling we have shared
And now I'm lonely 
I want to feel the love
So deep within you

Your love's a never ending dream
A castle by a stream 
Of sweet understanding
I know you're thinking of me, too 
The messages from you 
Are my inspiration

Love's incense lingers
It never fades away
Like you I'm waiting 
For our special day
And now I'm lonely 
I want to feel the love
So deep within you

My love is burning 
Like a forest fire
My heart is yearning 
I feel a warm desire
And now I'm lonely 
I want to touch the fire
So deep within you

Dear Diary
Ray Thomas
Alternate Mix


Dear Diary, what a day it's been
Dear Diary, it's been just like a dream
Woke up too late, wasn't where I should have been
For goodness sake, what's happening to me?
Write lightly, yours truly, dear Diary

It was cold outside my door
So many people by the score
Rushing around so senselessly
They don't notice there's people like me
Write lightly, yours truly, dear Diary

They don't know what they're playing
They've no way of knowing what the game is
Still they carry on doing what they can
Outside me, oh politely, dear Diary

It's over, will tomorrow be the same?
I know that they're really not to blame
If they weren't so blind then surely they'd see
There's a much better way for them to be
Inside me, yours truly, dear Diary
[...Dear Diary, it was cold today But the sun came out later So I went out and strolled about Looking at the shops I didn't really see anything I liked So I didn't buy anything. On the way home, I posted a letter Been quite a nice day... Somebody exploded an H-bomb today But it wasn't anybody I knew...]

Have You Heard (Part 1)
Mike Pinder
Original Take


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
Mike Pinder
Original Take



~~ Instrumental ~~



Lovely To See You
Justin Hayward
BBC Sessions: John Peel's "Top Gear", February 18, 1969


Wonderful day for passing my way
Knock on my door, even the score
With your eyes

Lovely to see you again, my friend
Walk along with me to the next bend

Dark cloud of fear is blowing away
Now that you're here, you're going to stay
'Cause it's...

Lovely to see you again my friend
Walk along with me to the next bend

Tell us what you've seen 
In faraway forgotten lands
Where empires have turned back to sand

Wonderful day for passing my way
Knock and my door and even the score
With your eyes

Lovely to see you again my friend
Walk along with me to the next bend

Send Me No Wine
John Lodge
BBC Sessions: John Peel's "Top Gear", February 18, 1969


Send me no wine to make an invitation
Leave me no time in your imagination
Only to find
Words in your mind
They're gonna make you leave your
Leave your heart behind

Send me, send me no wine
To send my love away
Send me, send me no wine
To send my love away
Once in my life I need no conversation
All of my time I'll spend in fascination
Give me my love
With you in my life
If only everybody found the answer in love

Send me, send me no wine
To send my love away
Send me, send me no wine
To send my love away

So Deep Within You
Mike Pinder
BBC Sessions: "The Tony Brandon Show" April 2, 1969


Talk to me baby 
I want to sleep at night
My heart is heavy 
It's weighed down by the night
And now I'm lonely
I want to see the light
So deep within you

Cool wind is blowing 
Through your crazy hair
Warm colours flowing 
This feeling we have shared
And now I'm lonely 
I want to feel the love
So deep within you

Your love's a never ending dream
A castle by a stream 
Of sweet understanding
I know you're thinking of me, too 
The messages from you 
Are my inspiration

Love's incense lingers
It never fades away
Like you I'm waiting 
For our special day
And now I'm lonely 
I want to feel the love
So deep within you

My love is burning 
Like a forest fire
My heart is yearning 
I feel a warm desire
And now I'm lonely 
I want to touch the fire
So deep within you

Are You Sitting Comfortably
Ray Thomas and Justin Hayward
BBC Sessions: "The Tony Brandon Show" April 2, 1969


Take another sip my love 
And see what you will see
A fleet of golden galleons
On a crystal sea

Are you sitting comfortably?
Let Merlin cast his spell...

Ride along the winds of time 
And see where we have been
The glorious age of Camelot
When Guinevere was Queen

It all unfolds before your eyes
As Merlin casts his spell...

The Seven Wonders of the World 
He'll lay before your feet
In far-off lands, on distant shores 
So many friends to meet

Are you sitting comfortably?
Let Merlin cast his spell...
