2. Great song, extraordinary lyrics.

"Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,
But when your return, it's the same old place."

5. "You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace

Hate your next door neighbor
But don’t forget to say grace”

I was a little kid then and this song stuck in my brain. My 30 year old son asks what the 60s were really like, this sums it up pretty well.
