Pink Floyd's Ummagumma

* Careful with that Axe Eugene
* Set the Controls to the Heart of the Sun
* A Saucerful of Secrets

Lyrics of Set the Controls to the Heart of the Sun were taken from Chinese Poetry of the Tang Dynasty.

Shakti in Pink Floyd's Ummagumma

"Little by little the night turns around
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Lotuses lean on each other in yearning
Under the eaves 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
Knowledge of love is knowledge of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine
Set the controls for the heart of the sun

The heart of the sun . . . . . . . . . . .
 

Witness the man who waves at the wall
Making the shape of his question to heaven
Whether 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. . . . . . . . . . "
