The song itself has been explained by Roger Waters as being about war or a battle. (where Something Else and Syncopated Pandemonium are the actual battle, storm Signals the aftermath and celestial voices the mourning of the dead). Whether Waters was serious is a question that's open for debate.
This account is echoed by Malcolm Jones. A February 1992 article in Record Collector suggests Syd may have been on ``Corporal Clegg,'' which is also noted in Schaffner's book. The ``Crazy Diamond'' book notes ``See Saw'' as another possibility; early Floyd biographer Rick Sanders agrees.

This also puts an end to the debate over whether it is ``One inch of love is one inch of shadow'' (as can be clearly heard on RoIOs, and slightly less clearly on Ummagumma) or ``knowledge of love, is knowledge of shadow'' as the remaster booklet lyrics claim.
The title of the song is taken from a Michael Moorcock novel Fireclown (also released as The Winds Of Limbo).

These are never before or after that referred to, with the exception of Nick's Boogie, which was initially recorded in January 1967.
I (Gerhard) will speculate here that there entries are not entries for songs, but are working titles for the various segments of A Saucerful Of Secrets. The session logs do not list any working tracks for ASOS, only a listing for the completed song.
Also, Nicks Boogie may possibly be a reference to Syncopated Pandemonium, and Richards Rave Up is a good candidate for Storm Signals. As said above, this is speculation from my part.
