You have the world at your fingertips
No one can make it better than you
You have the world at your fingertips
But see what you've done to the rain and the sun
So many changes have all just begun, to reap
I know you're asleep
Wake Up

Swastika plug in your wear
Jealous stars in your pants
Top turning nothing to bear
Except the view or the dare
We got nothing to hide
No we got nothing to hide
We're married to the same bride
We're married to the same bride
She eats away from inside
And we got nothing to hide
Drink down it, a jug full of beer
The bloated heads in your hands
Thats freezing the mouse trap is there
He knows he's blown his last chance
We got nothing to hide
No we got nothing to hide
We're married to the same bride
We're married to the same bride
She eats away from inside
And we got nothing to hide

We got nothing to hide
No we got nothing to hide
We're married to the same bride
We're married to the same bride
She eats away from inside
And we got nothing to hide

    Spirit's lyrics can be excruciatingly cryptic, but here at least the first part makes sense in the context that he is talking to humanity, talking about our scientific accomplishments, but also on how we are using our powers over nature like a drunk sailor spending money, calling for humanity to be wise and not do something stupid before we know the consequences of our endeavors. (Wow, it's incredible how easy it is to suck the poetry out of these lyrics). "We're married to the same bride" I take as being the fact that humanity and nature is playing on the same team, we have to take care not to ruin it for ourselves.
    But there is obviously a lot more hidden, despite it saying "we have nothing to hide".
    Can anybody make me any wiser, please? I've been grappling and struggling with these lyrics since I was 10 in 1970. (The rest of the album too).
    Well after all it's the "12 Dreams of Dr. S.", -not the "12 e-z fully explained lectures on contemporary life in post-1960's USA as viewed through acid specs of Dr. S.".
