Set Pompeii to the Heart of Mt. Vesuvius Picture

"Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun"

Pink Floyd

Little by little the night turns around.
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Lotuses lean on each other in yearning
Under the eaves the swallow is resting

Set the controls for the heart of the sun.

Over the mountain watching the watcher.
Breaking the darkness, waking the grapevine.
One inch of love is one inch of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine.

Set the controls for the heart of the sun.
The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun.

Witness the man who raves at the wall
Making the shape of his questions to Heaven
Whether the sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving?

Set the controls for the heart of the sun.
The heart of the sun, the heart of the sun.

Vesuvius are shown throughout Echoes, and, "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun". The pink is representing the band's famous shot of the four of them covered in a pink blanket. Next to the lava on each side, are the hearts to the sun. The sun is at the center, and there are two photo stills from the movie, of the amphitheater Pink Floyd performed in. The rest of the stuff is about the volcanic eruption in 79 BC, the festival Vulcanlia, which the citizens of Pompeii celebrated as a tration to pray to the god Vulcan for good harvest, and, the people who died as a result of the eruption.
