You have no word

Trip, trip to a dream dragon

HIde your wings in a ghost tower

Sails cackling at every plate we break

Cracked by shattered needles

The little minute gong

Coughs and clears his throught

Madam you see before you stand

Hey ho, never be still

THe old original favorite grand

Grasshoppers green hiberian band

And the tune they play is "in us confide"

So trip to heave and ho, up down, to and fro'

You have no word


Please leave us here

Close our eyes to the octupus ride!

It's a Syd Barrett song from the album The Madcap Laughs.

If it's this Syd Barrett, then it might explain the lyrics:

Syd Barrett (6 January 1946 – 7 July 2006), born Roger Keith Barrett, was an English singer-songwriter, guitarist and painter. He is most remembered as a founding member of psychedelic/progressive rock band Pink Floyd, providing major musical and stylistic direction in their early work, although he left the group in 1968 amidst speculations of mental illness exacerbated by heavy drug use.

Barrett was active as a rock musician for about seven years, recording two albums with Pink Floyd and two solo albums before going into self-imposed seclusion lasting more than thirty years. His post rock-band life was as an artist and a keen gardener, ending with his death in 2006. A number of biographies have been written about him since the 1980s and Pink Floyd wrote and recorded many tributes to him after he left, the most known being the 1975 album Wish You Were Here.
