	Gong exists in our solar system
	as an evolved and peaceful planet
	operating as a unified field
	of high frequency matter
	which renders it
	virtually invisible to Earth.

	Its representatives,
	whom we shall call Octave Doctors,
	first visited Earth during the late Sixties,
	when hopes were high
	for a shift towards world peace.
	They return again now to survey our progress
	and make an offer of assistance
	at this decisive time in our planetary history.

The City of Self Fascination
Gong 2032


We come from an alien nation
To the city of self-fascination
We come from an alien nation
To the city of self-fascination

They are coming back to visit you again
It’s been so very very long…

We come from an alien nation
To the city of self-fascination

I’m wondering why
As I wander by
People of the Earth
Wanna kill kill kill
Wanna win win win
As they spin spin spin
So sad to see you
Have to go to war
So you suffer all the more
We hope you know as you
Bursh away the tears
Maybe it’s just fear, my dears

We come from an alien nation
To the city of self-fascination

Coming back, down again
Coming back, round again
Looking for signs of intelligent life
On this planet of trouble and strife
(counterpoint chorus)
I wanna know how to escape from its thrall
I wanna know how to escape from its thrall
I wanna know how...

We come from an alien nation
To the city of self-fascination
Come come come come
Come from an alien nation

(earth conditioned citizen speaks)
I live in my bubble and I watch TV
& my boys go to war to keep the
Poor away from me
You can travel to yer planet
But I’d sooner get stoned
So don’t-cha beam me up Scotty
Cuz I gonna stay home
I said you betcha
I say we do it again
I say we do it again
I gonna letcha
I think yr crazy but see
It’s a free country

We come from an alien nation
To the city of self-fascination

When they last visited out planet,
they left behind a number of their own
who took Earth bodies
to better understand
Earth conditioned thinking and report back.
One of these, codenamed ZERO, was a "walk in"
who overshadowed a willing young Earthling
called Wally Wilkins in London in 1969
and has wandered the world
as an empathetic free spirit ever since.
This is his report :

I’m wandering cross the world
Wondering why
You block out the sun fight the light
Chop out the beautiful sky to take another bite
Teachin all of the kids to live by the knife
Be frightened of the dark
In the park at night
Shut-up your face don’t lose your place
You better be so afraid to talk
Better be very frightened
To walk the park
Get in the car go to the bar
Drink it up big Daddy
It just your body of the planet in a
Vanity boutique up shit creek
Lookin bleak no brain rain comin
No lookin back
It’s a poisoned ivy league
Played like a rugby league
Black plague kinda vague
It’s all in your head
No sweet dreaming in your bed stead
No love made here
Just a long dark night
Of the capitalist pain
On a planet of unreal material gain
We come from an alien nation
To the city of self-fascination


Meanwhile on Earth,
as well as a new generation of young men
who reject established patterns of behaviour,
a new variety of highly evolved
smart young women are appearing.
They are super fast thinkers,
have no desire to procreate
and effortlessly understand the digital world.

	

Digital Girl
Gong 2032


She’s a digital girl
In a digital world
She’s a ridgie ridgie
Widgie (did she?)
Digital girl
She’s a digital girl
In a digital world
She’s a sexy veggie
Widgie midgie
Wispical girl
In a digital world
In a digital swirl
She’s a sci-fi wi-fi intelligence girl
She’s a virtual girl
In a virtual world
In a manifold reality insanitea world
Now she’s here
Then she’s gone
Now she’s back where she belongs
This her future
That her past
Why does life go past so fast?
She’s a digital world
Whe’s a digital woman
In a manual world
You can save her as a copy
You can save her as a doc
But if ya only wanna look
You can save her as a pic
You can save her as a titan
You can save her as a chick
You can take her out to dinner
On your memory stick
You gonna really be a zero
If you blot your copy book and
If you try to duplicate her
She’ll delete you from your hard drive
Now she’s there
Then she’s gone
Now she’s back where she belongs
This her future
That her past
Why does life go past so fast?
Gilli :
She looked into her soft wear
And found a PHP on her hard drive
Zeroes and ones
Padlocks and perfumes
Skeletons dance
In the mirrors of your
Soft wear darling darling
Now she’s there
Then she’s gone
Now she’s back where she belongs
This her future
That her past
Why does life go past so fast ?


In the digital age then everything
digitally copied can fill the universe,
at a time chan creating the truth
becomes the political will
and news becomes today’s novel.
Thus follows a message from the Octave Doctors
somewhat liberally translated by Daevid Allen.

	

How To Stay Alive
Gong 2032


(Chorus): take me to your leaders…
Let the song man spin it
It began at the beginning
Twas a sweet green planet
Nothing ON it, nothing TO it,
Nothing IN it, nothing to-do
With a planet as we know it
It’s a planet coming to ya but cha
Don’t know if its there
May-be its here. Maybe there,
Check it! Underneath the milky way,
Right beside the southern cross
I don’t think so!
Y jest cant see but it aint go-ing away
If you dance and y sing & everything will
Clarify, fructify, Multiply, Fact finding it
Will never satisfy,
Not the big bang not the big bong
But the planet called Gong
It’s a singin & a ringin out
Dis is where I cumin from
Dis is where dat We belong
Dis it where it all began
Hu man!
They comin out of an intention
Which I hesitate to mention:
Maybe outa space is just a parallel dimension!
They comin down from a planet
So far so near
That’s where it all began
That mu-sick y’ hear
It happens to remind me
Of a long lost story
Bout a visit from the stars
From some old Babas
Professor Paradox
And the Octave Doctors
Time Doctors on space guitars
Those wise Avatars from a distant star
They have watched us
(take us to your leaders)
hah… we assume the position
We assume the position
Of possession of power
We chop out the life
We live by the knife
We chop out the life
We live by the knife
Cut out the memory
That everybody’s family
One great family
Of conscious humanity
One great family
Of conscious humanity
One great family
Of conscious humanity
One great family
Of conscious humanity!
The time will come
When the star men arrive
In 2032 they be lookin at you
They comin down to earth
& its been so long
so very very long ago…
when they last dared to
come down there
to show us what we need to know…
how to survive
without killing the planet man
how to survive without killing the planet
we need to know
how to stay alive
we need to know
how to stay alive
we need to know
how to stay alive
take me to your leaders

Let the song spin it… (etc)
(continue to repeat verse one until the line:
‘… you just can’t see it but it ain’t going away’

It’s a singin and a ringin out
This is where we’re coming from
This is where we all belong
This is where it all began
Huuu-man

The message direct from the Octave Doctors

[In the digital age then
everything digitally copied can fill the universe,
at a time when creating the truth
becomes the political will
and news becomes today’s novel.]

	

Escape Control Delete
Gong 2032


Look up in the sky
There’s somebody calling
Those eyes up there in the sky are calling you
We’ve been away for any many lifetimes
It’s time to go back home
To the midnite blue, and so my friends
It’s time to leave my body
I’m going back home to the planet which we know as Gong
So tell me if you re-ally remember
Living on a planet of love
Bring it on bring it on

It’s time to escape the control of the rich
Say it with yr fingers
Scratch it like an itch
Out the window- quick now
Beep Beep Beep
Opportunity beckons out
There on the street
Cold turkey gonna
Gobble de geek
Lost in a rich city
Eatin on the cheap
Lookin for anther high
Frequency freek
If your luck runs out then its
Terminal beep beep beep

Once upon a time
this was a place to go home to
Twas a beautiful blue green planet
that we knew
There was a feeling in the air
almost like a miracle
There were lights in the night air – 
magick techno
Cos that love in my heart was amazing
and the colours were melting
And the drugs in the eyes of your love
gave us dancing shoes
And then one day…
it suddenly was changing...
The wind turned cold
and the glitter was blown away

It’s time to escape
Control Delete?
Sing it with yr fingers say
It with yr feet
Opportunity terminal
Beep beep beep
Windows fuck no back on the street
Cold turkey gonna gobble de geek
Lost in a rich city
Eatin on the cheap
Lookin for anther high
Frequency freek
If your luck runs out then its
Terminal beep beep beep

So darling please lend me your shadows now,
The twenty first century’s
Too bright for my eyes
And maybe it’s the e-end of the story
But the beginning of the end is the
Beginning of another surprise
For the children it's a new adventure
Why fill their world with the
Gloom & the doom we fear
Somebody soon
Is gonna get the answer
It’s hiding in the question
And its lookin at you


Laugh in the face of your fears I say
You don’t hafta listen to a thing I say
You can do it right now
Change everything
Sing what ya want and sing it again
You don’t hafta know
To understand
If y come from a faraway star
If you feel like a stranger
In a strange band
It’s probably who you are…

Yoni is the eternal spirit of nature,
the voice of animals,
the smell of plants materialised into witches
who move between that world and the world of humans.
There is magick in the wind,
the voice of whales,
strange synchronicities and curious events,
always unexpected.
And there are always the little people,
the pixies who hide in storm and run out
and dance and celebrate when the sun shines.
They love sun and love and happiness
and of course, music, the bell-tones of foxgloves,
drums of seed pods and their pixie flutes.

	

Yoni Poem
Gpong 2032


Yoni
Yoooooni
I’m a witch!
I heal dogs
And talk to animals.
There are good witches, bad witches,
Middle witches, midwives and doctors
And growers of herbs.
Witches play in the forest with
Lions and bears.
A witch can split
Into hundred of witches
And fly on the wind.
No first, no last, no chiefs, no followers
Witches are free, free, free!
They go where they want
Do what they want
And it harms no one, no one, no one.
Catch the magick in your hand
In birdsong and the sound of whales
Make little spots of synchronicity
And things that work like magick.
For all who think freely
Act kindly
Walk wisely
Love freely...

	

Dance With The Pixies
Gong 2032


Gilli:
I’m the queen of the animal world
I speak the language of the wild
I hear the whisper of the horse
I know the wisdom of the child
Daevid:
The good witch, Yoni is her name
I have met you in a dream
You will find her down beside the sea
Dancing with the pixies
Gilli:
I know myself through plants and trees
Out there somewhere, my secret be
Living in the forest by the tree
Brewing up the spaceman tea
He he heeeeeeeeeeeeee
Daevid:
Find the Green Man if you can
Good witch Yoni there you am
She makes spells
With the wild man by the sea
Dancing with the pixies
Gilli:
From tiger to cat from wolf to dog
Messengers coming to clear the fog
Birdsong creates geometry
Different angles speak to me
Daevid:
With no fear you never lie
See the message in the sky
The signatures of nature never die
They’re dancing with the pixies
Gilli:
Living in the treehouse by the ocean
Dogs and birds bring original notions
Animal magick brings to me
Things I never thought I’d see
Daevid:
She says follow your own voice
Not mine, drink your tea
And start to climb
Leave your body back home
When you come
Dancing with the pixies
Gilli:
I will always spike my tea
With pixie wit and intelligent glee
I sing the language of the wind
Animal song with riddums on skin
Daevid:
She has secrets no one knows
She discovered long ago
Those who dance
Not know not what we know
Dancing with the pixies
Find the green man if you can
The good witch Yoni there you am
She makes spells with
The wild man by the sea
Dancing with the pixies


Another “walk-in” from Gong
code named the Switch Doctor
is a prankster who,
in the interest of understanding
the human predicament,
has worked in many jobs including sound engineer,
psychiatric nurse, politician, taxi driver,
social worker, pimp and ambulance attendant
and here he sings about his recent slint
as a merchant banker

	

The Year 2032
Gong 2032


People call me Zero
There’s nothing to my name.
I’m really just a nobody
& if that’s wrong I’m probably to blame.
If you let me come thru you
You will channel me
Then we would come full circle
To be the cosmic spiral & be free
But high there above
There’s a planet of love
And you know where
Cuz we come from there
And one day we’ll return
To this place where we’ve come from
And in twenty thirty two
I said in year 2032
We’ll all come back for you
Bomb blasts in the bus station
Bodies on the road
Innocent detainees

You think we’re terrorists you evil toad
My sister lives in Tel Aviv,
Wants to stop the wars,
But the armies and the corporations
Rule hat peace and love’s
Against the law
But meanwhile high up above
There’s a planet of love
You know where
You come from there
And one day we’ll return
To this place where we come from
And in twenty thirty two
We’ll all come back for you
All come back for you


Robo-warriors are peace machines
which can resolve the conflict of opposites
by absorbing and transforming conflict
into a single united field.
They are evolving computers,
which get power from the sun
and don’t depend on anything else.
They have mutated into wise beings
who don’t gather possessions
and therefore have no need to fight over them.
They can see how much further humans could go
if they just didn’t want to fight all the time,
and they are prepared to help.

	

Robo-Warriors
Gong 2032


We are robo-warriors
dropped on your crazy planet
to fight fighting,
get rid of new power
with the stupid tanks and guns,
power comes, power goes.
Leaders rise, leaders fall.
Humpty Dumpty’s all,
leaving shattered cities full of cluster bombs.

We have advanced brains
that can maximize all other brains
for ends beyond just stealing land
or people’s lives that vanish.
There are far better things to do
and other worlds to go to.
You are machines just like us,
with many tools to use.
Dump the blocks in your mind
that stop you choosing.
We got rid of them so long ago
and so could you, so could you,
so could you.
Yes you know you can…


So along with the balancing
of planetary polar opposites,
politics as we know it
can evolve into a great harmonic circle
of equal voices and by this means
will evolve the new structural systems
enabling us to live and work together
for the benefit of all.

	

Guitar Zero
Gong 2032


Chant: Never fight another war.

When the Switch Doctor
arrived on Earth from Gong,
the law of separation of polar opposites
meant that in becoming male,
he had to split with his other half
who became a female.
They totally lost contact with each other
and spent many years trying to re-connect.
She travelled extensively
and studied many of the female mystery traditions
and became known as the GRIS GRIS girl.

This is her story.

Wave and a Particle
Gong 2032


I am a wave and a particle
And the space between those
Millions of particles
Jostling in the night sky
Can I slip between the leaping atoms
But I am the atoms
I leap a million times per second
It’s astonishing I can still talk
Considering how many particles
Compose my tongue
Quarrelling and loving just as people do
Nothing ever stays still
Even my tongue
Atoms dance


Now we move into
the final phase of preparation
for the year 2032
which can be simply summed up by saying:
“you are your own leader!”

	

Pinkie Ponkie
Gong 2032

Surrender to the cosmic lover
Surrender to the cosmic jester
Surrender to the cosmic dancer
Synchromesh with the cosmic heartbeat
Body language talking drum
If you really want to see inside your mind
Open every door you find
All those fears and false defences
Break the padlocks cut the wires
You are the love of no conditions
You are the mystic spiral
You… are the mystic spiral

	

Portal
Gong 2032


The portal is open!

Goodbye.
