the byrds, the fifth dimension, lsd, and einstein — part 4

This is the fourth in a series of pieces on the Byrds’ sixth single, 5D (Fifth Dimension). In it, I reprint the lyrics to the song—and accurately, something that is not as common as you might think on the internet . . .

This entry on the Byrds’ 5D (Fifth Dimension) single from 1966 has been moved from this website to my new website, Rather Rare Records ( It has been combined with the six other parts here into one piece there: “the byrds’ 5D (fifth dimension) – is it the most underrated single of the psychedelic sixties?” Minor modifications were made on the seven parts so that it reads more fluently and less redundantly.

Comments, suggestions, additions, and arguments welcome!
