THOUGHTS FOR NAUGHT

If you want to fly,
if you want to become a star
a superhero
You could try the ascension 
of the great pyramid of life
Counting again and again 
from one to nine
Approaching and pushing away 
infinity 
O sweet absurdity!

But if you prefer 
that old silly number zero
You'll become a master 
of doing nothing, being nothing


A PHP'S ADVICE

In case you don't remember, 
this is what you do
Get up out of bed now
If there's nothing left to
Find the answer to here is 
Question number one
If you're a believer, 
what do you believe?
Why do you believe it?
Doncha ever wonder
If it's really true?
Do you? 

Question number two
Really that's the mystery

Let a pothead pixie 
tell you what to do
And this is what he'll tell you
If you gotta problem 
to know who you are
Hear now this is what you do
Remember
You are me
I am you
all of us together
now go
AUM


MASTER BUILDER

I-A-O 
ZA-I ZA-O
MA-I MA-O
TA-I TA-O 
N-OW

Q: Master Builder, 
tell me how you make a temple?

A: Tools and moon stones, 
you don't really need them, 
you know

Q: Master Builder, 
tell me what the temple's made of?

A: Deep inside you, 
you can build an invisible temple 
in your own imagination 
if you will


PERFECT MYSTERY

It's a perfect mystery
how becomes a tree a tree
but there's something telling me
that nothing is for nothing 
is for nothing 
is for only one lifetime
learning to be

Cops at the door
No cops at the door
Cops at the door
No cops at the door

What a surprise!
She looked in the cupboard
and found the eyes in the suitcase

On the Isle of Everywhere
it becomes a man to share
all and everything he cares for
everyone is everybody else is
slowly melting themselves
together again

Look up in the air
The Octave Doctor's there!
And when he strokes his gong
Your middle eye comes on

What a surprise!
She looked around for Zero
But he'd lost his eyes
In a fruitcake


ISLE OF EVERYWHERE

O spirit wind I love you

hava a cuppa tea
cuppa hubba dubba
didn't you forget something
roll another brother
maybe you forgot someone
a bit a'cake
yum yum
haven't you forgotten

yea yea!
Wot's the scene today?

WE better ask

Where has everybody
Gong! I hear the Gong!
wait a minute man
hey! We missed the Buzz
Oh No!


YOU NEVER BLOW YR TRIP FOREVER

Zero...
Where are you?
don't ya remember 
why you came to Everywhere
The piece of mind 
that you came to find 
has disappeared 
for all that you could take
was a piece of cake and wine 
and now you'll have to wait
another time... 

maybe you're here for the giggle
maybe you're into the puzzle
maybe you're blowing the bubble
maybe you're all in a muddle

the more you know
the more you know 
you don't know 
what you know
stone's throw 
left to go
bad weather 
hell for leather
now and zen 
you goof again
you never blow your trip forever

earth mother 
soul brother
be high here now
third eye open soon
meanwhile new world 
group soul lost and found 
underground
next time round

a real weird number
is Zero the man
because he a turnin' on
round and round again
they say he'll never make it
but I think he can

there's a hole in the morning
It's the hole that he was born in
now the old man's yawnin 

It's the world of illusions
and Zero the Hero
is up to his ears
in the mysteries 
No solution to speak of 
round and round and round 
and round and round
that's Zero going 
round again 
And maybe you come
and maybe you're gone
and maybe you're right
and maybe you're wrong
maybe you're a one
and maybe you two
and maybe you're free
and dunno what for
just as long as you're alive
it's all the same
it's all in the name
it's all in the sky and
it doesn't really matter
if you make it
so long as you try
So it's back on the path
beside the road to everywhere
gonna jump my horses
over the weeks to everywhere
and with you we will share
your sack of cares 
and if things don't change for
better or worse
well man you must be dead
but cha don't have to 
give up hope
and ya don't have to 
give up dope (until you do)
and ya don't have to 
change your ways
you just have to 
be what you are 
my friends, today 
that's what the Octave Doctor says 

So there goes Zero the Hero
Turning on around 
the wheel of births and deaths
And meanwhile the Octave Doctors
and the Pot Head Pixies and
all the other characters of
the Planet Gong 
hafta to leave you now
with a last little song

Why don't you
Why don't you try

You are I or I am you
You I am or I am you
You am I or am I you
You are Maya Ram are you
You are my Hiram are you
You am I or I am you
You are Maya I am you
You am I as I are you
You are Maya's eye are you
You are I or I am you
