    Dark Star / China Cat Sunflower / The Eleven (Live at Carousel Ballroom, San Francisco, March 16, 1967)

    [Part I: Dark Star]

    [Verse 1]
    Dark star crashes
    Pouring its light into ashes
    Reason tatters
    The forces tear loose from the axis
    Searchlight casting
    For faults in the clouds of delusion

    [Refrain]
    Shall we go, you and I, while we can
    Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds

    [Instrumental Break]

    [Verse 2]
    Mirror shatters
    In formless reflections of matter
    Glass hand dissolving
    In ice petal flowers revolving
    Lady in velvet
    Recedes in the nights of goodbye

    [Refrain]
    Shall we go, you and I, while we can
    Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds

    [Part II: China Cat Sunflower]

    [Verse 1]
    Look for a while at the china cat sunflower
    Proud walking jingle in thе midnight sun
    Copperdome bodhi drip a silver kimono
    Likе a crazy quilt stargown through a dream night wind

    [Instrumental Break]

    [Verse 2]
    Krazy Kat peeking through a lace bandanna
    Like a one-eyed cheshire, like a diamond-eye jack
    A leaf of all colors plays a golden-string fiddle
    To a double-e waterfall over my back

    [Instrumental Break]

    [Verse 3]
    Comic book colors on a violin river
    Crying a lot of words from out a silk trombone
    I rang a silent bell, beneath a shower of pearls
    In the eagle-winged palace of the Queen Chinee

    [Instrumental Break]

    [Part III: The Eleven]

    [Verse]
    No more time to tell how
    This is the season of what
    (Eight-sided whispering hallelujah hatrack)
    Now is the time of returning
    With our thought jewels polished and gleaming
    (Six proud walkers on the jingle-bell rainbow)
    Now is the time past believing
    The child has relinquished the reign
    (Five men writing in fingers of gold)
    Now is the test of the boomerang
    Tossed in the night of redeeming

    [Instrumental Outro]
