Think about the things that we should have done before
The way things are going the end is about to fall

We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago

Look around and see the warnings close at hand
Already weeds are writing their scriptures in the sand

We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago

The morning sun is rising, casting rays across the land
Already nature's calling, take heed of the warning

We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago

Think about the things that we should have done before
The way things are going the end is about to fall

We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago
We took the wrong step years ago

The world needs more 'wind.
Hah, I just dropped two Hydrocodon.  This is working mighty fine...thank you.{#Bounce}
More Hawkwind. They've got loads of great tracks.
I still have the original LP. Very trippy album packaging I must say.  
Good golly Ms. Molly, not only never heard this track before — I've never even heard of the band. 
It's not so great, but I like it. One from the archives. Blast from the past. Hit me up, pass the bong.
 
I have to admit that even high, he was pretty right!
Wow, someone besides myself actually playing Hawkwind - Love this grp

How about a little Quark, Strangeness & Charm? 
Interesting. Never heard this band before.  I recognize the 'sound', i.e., the era.

Cool.  

Not sayin' I am about to rush to mail-order the CD.  Just happy to hear this on RP.  
Ha! Love Hawkwind 
Many, many years since I heard this - brought back MANY memories; some very strange - somebody put 'something' in the coffee in the inflatable tent they were performing in at the Isle of Wight festival, with the result that about 10,000 people watched them in 64-channel 'stereo', with lots and lots of strange colours.

BTW, this album is pre-Lemmy. 
I have this theory that the best music results from taking the right amount of drugs. Too little, and it's boring. Too much, and you get...well, this song.  

I call it the Goldilocks and the three bongs theory.
 
Well kudos to Bill for pulling out something I have NEVER heard before. On the other hand, I believe he introduced this as " the best of 70's psychedelia" or something to that effect. If that be the case, let's not visit the other end of the spectrum.
A cool blast from the past for me.  Would like to hear a bit more of this band in the rotation!

Back in another era, when this band was active, I never paid them any mind. For this I am pleased. The more than obvious similarities to early Pink Floyd are more than just similarities, they sound like replicas.

yep, Lemmy, Waters, just can't tell 'em apart .  .  .

Sounds like they are using a Star Trek transporter to find space...

Lemmy involved?

 
i think this Hawkwind track pre-dates Lemmys' membership (by about a decade or so), but i've been wrong before!

Nice to hear this on RP, been a while since i've heard it anyway.
How about a blast of 'Hurry On Sundown'? not heard that in ages either.
cheers.

PS
Yep, i was wrong !
"We Took the Wrong Step Years Ago" is side2, track2 of the Hawkwind album 'In Search Of Space' released in 1971
and Lemmy joined Hawkwind in . . .
1972.
Oh well so much for my memory then!
Lemmy involved?
