Pink Floyd: Flaming Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 1967
Lying on an eiderdown.
You can't see me, but I can you.
Lazing in the foggy dew.
Sitting on a unicorn.
You can't hear me, but I can you.
Watching buttercups cup the light.

This song is a psychedelic daydream. It's a wish for what we want the world to be. Instead of violence they're "alone in the clouds all blue." They're safe in their own solitude. In this way they are able to be free of all societal control. That was basically the entire point of psychedelics in the 1960's. People just wanted to have their own thoughts and not believe in what their government wanted them to believe in.
