Let There Be More Light (Waters)
    Far, far, far
                       away - way
                       People heard him say - say
                       I will find a way - way
                       There will come a day - day
                       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
                       made contact with the human race at Mildenhall.
                       Knew the Rhull revealed to him the
                       glowing soul of Heremond the Wake. Oh, my,
                       something in my eye - eye
                       Something in the sky - sky
                       Waiting there for me The outer rope rolls early 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 Something in his cosmic art
                       And glowing slightly from his toes
                       The psychic and the nations fly

Remember A DAy (Wright)
 Remember a Day (Wright) Remember a day before
                       today
                       A day when you were young.
                       Free to play alone with time
                       Evening never came.
                       Sing a song that can't be sung
                       Without the morning's kiss
                       Queen - you shall be it if you wish
                       Look for your king Why can't we play today
                       Why can't we stay that way Climb your favorite apple
                       tree
                       Try to catch the sun
                       Hide from your little brother's gun
                       Dream yourself away
                       Why can't we reach the sun
                       Why can't we blow the years away
                       Blow away
                       Blow away
                       Remember
                       Remember

 Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun (Waters)
 Little by little the night turns around.
                       Counting the leaves which tremble and turn.
                       Lotus's lean on each other in union.
                       Over the hills where a swallow is resting.
                       Set the controls for the heart of the sun. Over the
                       mountain watching the watcher.
                       Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine.
                       Morning to birth is born into shadow
                       Love is the shadow that ripens the wine.
                       Set the controls for the heart of the sun.
                       The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun. Who is the
                       man who arrives at the wall?
                       Making the shape of his questions at asking.
                       Thinking the sun will fall in the evening.
                       Will he remember the lesson of giving?
                       Set the controls for the heart of the sun.
                       The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun.

Corporal Cregg (Waters)
                      Corporal Clegg had a
                       wooden leg
                       He won it in the war, in 1944.
                       Corporal Clegg had a medal too
                       In orange, red, and blue
                       He found it in the zoo.
                       Dear, dear were they really sad for me?
                       Dear, dear will they really laugh at me?
                       Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him.
                       Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin.
                       Corporal Clegg umbrella in the rain
                       He's never been the same
                       No one is to blame
                       Corporal Clegg recieved his medal in a dream From
                       Her Majesty the queen
                       His boots were very clean.
                       Mrs. Clegg, you must be proud of him
                       Mrs. Clegg, another drop of gin.

See Saw (Wright)
                       See-Saw (Wright) Marigolds are very much in love,
                       but he doesn't mind
                       Picking up his sister, he makes his way into the
                       seas or land
                       All the way she smiles
                       She goes up while he goes down, down
                       Sits on a stick in the river
                       Laughter in his sleep
                       Sister's throwing stones, hoping for a hit
                       He doesn't know so then
                       She goes up while he goes down, down
                       Another time, another day
                       A brother's way to leave
                       Another time, another day She'll be selling plastic
                       flowers on a Sunday afternoon Picking up weeds,
                       she hasn't got the time to care
                       All can see he's not there
                       She grows up for another man, and he's down
                       Another time, another day
                       A brother's way to leave
                       Another time, another day
                       Another time, another day
                       A brother's way to leave

Jugband Blues (Barrett)
 It's awfully considerate of
                       you to think of me here
                       And I'm much obliged to you for making it clear
                       That I'm not here.
                       And I never knew we could be so thick
                       And I never knew we could be so blue
                       And I'm grateful that you threw away my old shoes
                       And brought me here instead dressed in red
                       And I'm wondering who could be writing this song. I
                       don't care if the sun don't shine
                       And I don't care if nothing is mine
                       And I don't care if I'm nervous with you
                       I'll do my loving in the winter. And the sea isn't green
                       And I love the queen
                       And what exactly is a dream
                       And what exactly is a joke.

History
This is Pink Floyd's second album, and a major transition for  them. After completing only one song, "Jugband Blues",  founding member Syd Barrett left the group. He  was replaced by his friend Dave Gilmour, who  completed the line-up that would produce the  band's most successful recordings.
