After The Goldrush Lyrics - Neil Young

Review The Song (1)

Well, I dreamed I saw the knights
In armor coming,
Saying something about a queen.
There were peasants singing and
Drummers drumming
And the archer split the tree.
There was a fanfare blowing
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 lying in a burned out basement
With the full moon in my eyes.
I was hoping for replacement
When the sun burst thru the sky.
There was a band playing in my head
And I felt like getting high.
I was thinking about what a
Friend had said
I was hoping it was a lie.
Thinking about what a
Friend had said
I was hoping it was a lie.

Well, I dreamed I saw the silver
Space ships flying
In the yellow haze of the sun,
There were children crying
And colors flying
All around the chosen ones.
All in a dream, all in a dream
The loading had begun.
They were flying Mother Nature's
Silver seed to a new home in the sun.
Flying Mother Nature's
Silver seed to a new home.

what the song means to me | Reviewer: ahlmann | 3/14/11

I wounded up here after watching Nassim Haramein at the Rogue Valley's online video presentation. He points out that the third verse of the song was playing while he was watching unreleased NASA-footage of UFO's around, and flying into, our sun.

I was in a spiritual awakening when I was watching this presentation, and the second verse means a lot to me. Especially listening to Thom Yorke's cover of this song. In the chaos of my life at that moment, 'lying in a burned out basement', and the chaos the world is in seen daily on tv, 'with the full moon in my eyes, I was also 'hoping for replacement', and suddenly everything made sense, 'the sun burst through the skies', combining all information that stuck with me about religion, ancient civilisations, spirituality, new age, ufo's, the state of our world and why, the new world order etc. I also have a friend who first told me of the NWO and how I was hoping it was a lie. But bands like Radiohead and Muse's lyrics went through my head and it made even more sense. So i tried and got high too, both symbolically and literally (no difference really). I was catapulted from deep depression to eternal bliss.

so for me this song will always stick with me reminding me of my elevation from fear&doubt to love, and whenever I feel gravity is taking the best from me, I listen to this song and remember what is important in our lives.

also good explanation of this song:
