Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
From their debut album, this was the third Pink Floyd single released in the United States. It was written by Syd Barrett, who was a founding member of the band, but became an acid casualty and had to leave the band a few years later when he lost his mind. Typical of Barrett's work, it's a very psychedelic song. (thanks, John - Chicago, IL)
