Psychedelic Lyrics

We all know what a long, strange trip it's been since the 60's, when Alice grew to ten feet tall and everyone was living in a sunshine daydream. Psychedelia never really died, though; trippy lyrics can be found on albums from every generation, then to now. Can you name the artists behind these psychedelic lyrics?
