Well I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming
Saying something about a queen
There were peasants singin' and drummers drummin'
And the archer split the tree

There was a fanfare blowin' to the sun
That was floating on the breeze
Look at mother nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies
Look at mother nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies

I was lyin' in a burned out basement
With the full moon in my eye
I was hopin' for replacement
When the sun burst through the sky

There was a band playin' in my head
And I felt getting high
I was thinkin' about what a friend had said
I was hopin' it was a lie
Thinkin' about what a friend had said
I was hopin' it was a lie

Well I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flyin'
In the yellow haze of the sun
There were children cryin' and colors flyin'
All around the chosen one

All in a dream
All in a dream
The loading had begun

Flyin' Mother Nature's silver seed
To a new home in the sun
Flyin' Mother Nature's silver seed
To a new home


Live version (1976)

Well I dreamed I saw the knights in armor coming
Saying something about a queen
There were peasants singin' and drummers drummin'
The archer split the tree

There was a fanfare blowin' to the sun
That floated on the breeze
Look at mother nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies
We got mother nature on the run
In the nineteen seventies

I was lyin' in a burned out basement
With the full moon in my eye
I was hopin' for replacement
When the sun burst through the sky

There was a band playin' in my head
And I felt getting high
Thinkin' about what a friend had said
I was hopin' it was a lie
Thinkin' about what a friend had said
I was hopin' it was a lie

Well I dreamed I saw the silver spaceships flyin'
In the yellow haze of the sun
There were children cryin' and colours flyin'
All around the chosen one

All in a dream
All in a dream
The loadin' had begun

Flyin' Mother Nature's silver seed
To a new home in the sun
We were flyin' Mother Nature's silver seed
To a new home
