Oz Is Ever Floating

Album: The Grand Pecking Order (2001)
  • Oz is always floating
    Ever drifting sometimes doting
    Over things that mean the world to
    Dr. John C. Lilly
    In the tank he's grooving
    Ever sifting sometimes smoothing
    Out the things that mean the world to
    Dr. John C. Lilly
    Are you still floating Dr. John C. Lilly?
    Drifting as the time goes by
    Across the inner cosmos he is flying
    His tank is isolating
    In his mind he's elevating
    All the things that mean the world to Dr. John C. Lilly
    Are you still floating Dr. John C. Lilly?

    In the liquid he will lie
    Rehearsing for the final act of dying

    Oz is ever floating
    Dr. John C. Lilly Writer/s: LES CLAYPOOL, STEWART COPELAND, ERNEST ANASTASIO

  • Jaydingo from Lexington, KyJohn C. Lilly also coined the phrase "Earth Co-incidence Control Office (Ecco), refering to his belief that metaphysical entites unite for meaningful co-incidences (or synchronicities) in order to co-ordinate the physical & spiritual development of individuals on Earth. The term synchronicity simply implies the meshing or synching of two "unlike" things to create a whole new entity. Just like Pink Floyd & The Wizard of Oz....The 1st 7 tracks on The Grand Pecking Order synchs with the MGM classic The Wizard of Oz. Prep the film & cd & push play on the cd the moment you see the MGM lion. - Jaydingo (The Synchronicity Arkive)
  • Cosmo from Hudson, OhIn the liner notes with the cd, it says that the album was recorded by Oz Fritz at The Barn, I dont know if he has anything to do with the OZ in the song at all... he might
    thats just my 2 cents
    ~ Peace
