Let There Be More Light

Album: A Saucerful Of Secrets (1968)
  • Far, far, far away, way
    People heard him say, say
    Something will be done

    Then at last the mighty ship
    Descending on a point of flame
    Made contact with the human race
    And melted hearts

    Now, now, now is the time, time
    Time to be, be, be aware

    Carter's father saw him there and
    Knew the road revealed to him
    The living soul of Hereward the Wake

    Oh, my, something in the sky, sky
    Something in my eye, eye
    Waiting there for me

    The outer lock rolled slowly back
    The service men were heard to sigh
    For there revealed in glowing robes
    Was Lucy in the sky

    Oh, oh, did you ever know, know
    Never ever will they
    I cannot say

    Summoning his cosmic powers
    And glowing slightly from his clothes
    His psychic emanations flowed Writer/s: ROGER WATERS

  • Mreenal from Darjeeling, Indiacould someone please explain me the lyrics..
  • Chloe from St. Louis, Mois it my imagination, or did the beatles and pink floyd both heavily influence each other? there seem to be a lot of references to them in floyd songs, and a few of their songs have a bit of the same sound. theres also the fact that the beatles played in room 1 at abbey road. pink floyd played in room 2.
  • Oldpink from New Castle, InMatt,
    Rick actually sang on THREE songs on this album: This one, See-Saw, and Remember a Day.
  • G from Potomac, MdYou mean "he won IT IN the war" Roy
  • Roy from Granbania, MaThis album actually has all five members of the band contributing lead vocals. Mason sings the "He won the war..." lines in Corporal Clegg.
  • Mark B. Stoned from Desperate Hot Springs, CaTo my best understanding, the quiet verse is sung by Wright with the whispered vocals by Waters, while the loud verse is, indeed, Gilmour. The other group-sung song from the album is "Corporal Clegg"; "Remember a Day" and "See-Saw" are Wright's tunes; Waters does "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun"; Syd sings "Jugband Blues"; and the title track is an instrumental. Hope that clarifies things a bit.
  • Ryan from Plano, TxThis song has several easter eggs in its lyrics.
  • Pierre-yves from BelfortListen to the beginning of the song "Taste in men" by Placebo. Coincidence ?
  • Ben from Winona, MnWhat two songs does Rick sing lead on, Kent?
  • Matt from Syracuse, NyThe first song featuring David Gilmour on guitar (being the first song on the album.) Also his first guitar solo.
  • Kent Lyle from Palo Alto, CaTo this day people are not sure who sings on this song. Either Roger or Rick probably sings the quiet verse, while it is undoubtedly Gilmour singing the loud response verse. In fact, this entire album has four lead singers on it: Roger, Dave, Rick, and Syd. Rick sings lead on two full songs, making him the winner, ironically enough.
