    I think with the phrase "opium for the people," daevid is referring to how mass media and simple comforts distract people from the reality of the world. People become complacent and conform to society like in Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451.

    One of my favorite Gong family songs. In some more recent live performances Daevid concludes the "opium, opium, opium" part by yelling "Fuck you, opium!". great stuff.
