GENESIS

169a-AFTERGLOW – Sol M

Genesis   

 

Like the dust

that settles all around me,
i must find a new home.


the ways and holes

that used to give me shelter,
are all as one to me now.


but i,

i would search everywhere
just to hear your call,
and walk upon stranger

roads than this one in a world

i used to know before.
i miss you more.

than the sun

reflecting off my pillow,
bringing the warmth of new life.


and the sounds

that echoed all around me,
i caught a glimpse of in the night.

 

but now,

now i've lost everything,
i give to you

my soul.
the meaning of all

that i believed before
escapes me in this world of none,

no thing, no one.

and i

would search everywhere
just to hear

your call,
and walk upon stranger roads

than this one in a world

i used to know before.


for now i've lost everything,
i give to you

my soul.
the meaning of all

that i believed before
escapes me

in this world of none,
i miss you more.

169b-AM I VERY WRONG – C1 Si m

Genesis

 

Am I very wrong
To hide behind the glare

from an open minded stare


Am I very wrong
To wander in the fear

of a never ending lie

Am I very wrong
To try to close my ears

to the sound they play so loud


Am I very wrong
The happiness machine is

trying hard to sing my song

Today's your birthday friend,

everything all right
Let us our greetings to you send
Happy friend,

everything all right
We hope your life will never end

 

Am I very wrong
To want to steal a pin

then I'll check that I have skin


Am I very wrong
To want to leave my friends

and the curse of the happiness machine

Today's your birthday friend,

everything all right
Let us our greetings to you send
Happy friend,

everything all right
We hope your life will never end

They say,

we hope your life will never end
They say never end, never end,

never end, never end, never end

They say never end - no

They say never end, never end...

170a-ENTANGLED – Si m

Genesis

 

When you're asleep they may show you
aerial views of the ground,
freudian slumber empty of sound.

Over the rooftops and houses,
lost as it tries to be seen,
fields of incentive covered with green.


Mesmerised children are playing,
meant to be seen but not heard,
"stop me from dreaming!"
"don't be absurd!"


"well

if we can help you we will,
you're looking tired and ill.
as i count backwards
your eyes become heavier still.

 

sleep,

won't you allow yourself fall?
nothing can hurt you at all.
with your consent
i can experiment further still."


Madrigal music is playing,
voices can faintly be heard,
"please leave this patient undisturbed."


Sentenced to drift far away now,
nothing is quite what it seems,
sometimes entangled in your own dreams.


"well, if we can help you we will,
soon as you're tired and ill.
with your consent
we can experiment further still.


Well, thanks to our kindness and skill
you'll have no trouble until
you catch your breath
and the nurse will present you the bill!"

170b-FOLLOW YOU FOLLOW ME – Sol M

Genesis

 

Stay with me,
My love i hope you'll always be
Right here by my side

if ever i needed you
Oh my love


In your arms,
I feel so safe and so secure
Everyday is such

a perfect day to spend
Alone with you


I will follow you will you

follow me All the

days and nights that we

know will be I will

stay with you will you

stay with me Just one

single tear in each

passing year

 

With the dark,
I see so very clearly now
All my fears are drifting

by me so slowly now
Fading away


I can say
The night is long but you are there
Close at hand

i'm better for the smile you give
And while i live


I will follow you will you

follow me All the

days and nights that we

know will be I will

stay with you will you

stay with me Just one

single tear in each

passing year there will be


I will follow you ...

171a-FOR ABSENT FRIENDS – Re M

Genesis

 

Sunday at six

when they close both the gates
a widowed pair,
still sitting there,

wonder if they're late for church


and it's cold,

so they fasten their coats
and
cross the grass,

they're always last.


Passing by the padlocked swings,
the roundabout still turning,
ahead they see a small girl
on her way home with a pram.

 

Inside the archway,
the priest greets them with

a courteous nod.
he's close to god.


looking back at days of four

instead of two.
years seem so few
heads bent in prayer
for friends not there.

 
Leaving two pence on the plate,
they hurry down the path

and through the gate and wait

to board the bus
that ambles down the street

171b-IN HIDING – Mi m

Genesis

 

Pick me up, Put me down
Push me in, Turn me round
Switch me on, Let me go
I have a mind of my own
In hiding

 

Far from the city of night
And the factories of truth
I stand upon the mountain
A million miles from my home
And the faces of fear
I have freedom to think


In hiding
I may take off my clothes
That I wear on my face
I float upon a river
A million miles from the plains
That are piercing the clouds
I am lost in the beauty
In hiding

 

Pick me up ,Put me down
Push me in, Turn me round
Switch me on ,Let me go
I have a mind of my own
In hiding


I lie silent at last
I am free from my past
I walk among the tall trees
This is beauty I know
I am in love with it all
I have the freedom to love
In hiding

Pick me up ,Put me down
Push me in ,Turn me round
Switch me on, Let me go
I have a mind of my own
In hiding


I may take off my clothes
That I wear on my face
I float upon a river
A million miles from the plains
That are piercing the clouds
I am lost in the beauty …

In hiding

172a-MAD MAN MOON – Mi m

Genesis

 

Was it summer when the river ran dry,
or was it just another dam.
when the evil of a snowflake in june
could still be a source of relief.

o how i love you,

i once cried long ago,
but i was the one

who decided to go.
to search beyond the final crest,
though i'd heard it said just birds

could dwell

so high.


So i pretended to have wings for my arms
and took off in the air.
i flew to places which the clouds never see,
too close to the deserts of sand,

 
where a thousand mirages,

the shepherds of lies
forced me to land

and take a disguise.
i would welcome a horse's kick to send me back
if i could find a horse

 

not made

of sand.


If this desert's all there'll ever be
then tell me what becomes of me.
a fall of rain?
that must have been another

of your dreams,
a dream of mad

man moon.

 

INTERLUDE

 

Hey man,
i'm the sand man.
and boy have i news for you;


they're gonna throw you in gaol
and you know they can't fail
'cos sand is thicker than blood.
but a prison in sand
is a haven in hell,
for a gaol can give you a goal
[and a] goal can find you a role
on a muddy pitch in Newcastle,
where it rains so much
you can't wait for a touch
of sun and sand, sun and sand...

 

Within the valley of shadowless death
they pray for thunderclouds and rain,
but to the multitude who stand in the rain
heaven is where the sun shines.


the grass will be greener

till the stems turn to brown
and thoughts will fly higher

till the earth brings them down.


forever caught in desert lands

one has to learn to dis

believe

the sea.

If this desert's all there'll ever be
then tell me what becomes of me.
a fall of rain?
that must have been another

of your dreams,
a dream of mad

man moon.

172b-MISUNDERSTANDING – Re m

Genesis

 

Must be some misunderstanding

there must be some kind of mistake

i waited in the rain for hours

and you were late.

 

now it's not like me to say the right thing

but you could've called to let me know

i checked your number twice, don't understand it

so i went home

 

well i'd been waiting

for this weekend

i thought that maybe

we could see a show

never dreamed i'd have this feeling

oh but seeing you is believing

that's why i don't know why

you didn't show up that night

 

there must be some misunderstanding

there must be some kind of mistake

i was waiting in the rain for hours

and you were late

 

since then i've been running around

trying to find

you went to the places that we

always go

 

i rang your home but got no answer

jumped in my car, i went round there

still don't believe I the was just leaving

 

there must be some misunderstanding

there must be some kind of mistake...

173b-RIPPLES – Mi M

Genesis

 

Blue girls come in every size
some are wise and some otherwise
they got pretty blue eyes
for an hour a man may change
for an hour her face looks strange
looks strange, looks strange


Marching to the promised land
where the honey flows and takes you by the hand
pulls you down on your knees
while you're down a pool appears


the face in the water looks up
and she shakes her head as if to say
that it's the last time you'll look like today


Sail away, away
ripples never come back
gone to the other side
sail away, sail away

 

The face that launched a thousand ships
is sinking fast, that happens you know
the water gets below
seems not very long ago
lovelier she was

than any that i know


Angels never know it's time
to close the book and gracefully decline
the song has found a tale
my, what a jealous pool she is


the face in the water looks up
she shakes her head as if to say
that the blue girls have all gone away


Sail away, away
ripples never come back
they've gone to the other side


look into the pool
ripples never come back
dive to the bottom and go to the top
to see where they have gone


oh, they've gone to the other side…

174a-THAT’S ALL – Mi m

Genesis

 

Just as i thought it was going alright
I find out i'm wrong, when i thought i was right
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell it's black when i know that it's white
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all


I could leave but i won't go
Though my heart might tell me so
I can't feel a thing from my head
Down to my toes
So why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all


Turning me on, turning me off
Making me feel like i want too much
Living with you's
Just putting me through it all of the time


Running around, staying out all night
Taking it all instead of taking one bite
Living with you's
Just putting me through it all of the time

 

CHORUS


But i love you
More than i wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no-one who
Makes me feel like you do
Say we'll be together til the end


(break)


CHORUS

 

But i love you
More than i wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend

I find out i'm wrong when i thought i was right
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell me it's black when i know that it's white
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

174b-THE CINEMA SHOW – Re M

Genesis

 

Home from work our Juliet
Clears her morning meal.
She dabs her skin with pretty smells
Concealing to appeal.


I will make my bed,
She said,

but turned to go.
Can she be late for her cinema show?

Cinema show


Romeo locks his basement flat,
And scurries up the stair.
With head held high and floral tie,
A weekend millionaire.

 

I will make my bed
With her tonight, he cries.
Can he fail

armed with his chocolate surprise?

*Take a little trip

back with father Tiresias,
Listen to the old one speak

of qall he has lived through.


I have crossed between the poles,

for me there's no mystery.


Once a man, like the sea I raged,
Once a woman, like the earth I gave.
There is in fact

more earth than sea

175a-UNDERTOW – La M

Genesis

 

The curtains are drawn
Now the fire warms the room.
Meanwhile outside
Wind from the north-east chills the air,
It will soon be snowing out there.

And some there are
Cold, they prepare for a sleepless night.
Maybe this will be their last fight.

But we're safe in each other's embrace,
All fears go out as I look on your face

Better think awhile
Or I may never think again.
If this were the last day of your life, my friend,
Tell me, what do you think you would do then?

Stand up to the blow that fate has struck upon you,
Make the most of all you still have coming to you, [or]
Lay down on the ground

And let the tears run from you,
Crying to the grass and trees and heaven finally

on your knees

 

Let me live again, let life come find me wanting.
Spring must strike again against the shield of winter.
Let me feel once more the arms of love surround me,
Telling me the danger's past,

I need not fear the icy blast again.


Laughter, music and perfume linger here
And there, and there,
Wine flows from flask to glass and mouth,
As it soothes, confusing our doubts.

And soon we feel,
Why do a single thing to-day,
There's tomorrow sure as I'm here.
So the days they turn into years
And still no tomorrow appears.
Better think awhile
Or I may never think again.
If this were the last day of your life, my friend,
Tell me, what do you think you would do then?
Stand up to the blow that fate has struck upon you,
Make the most of all you still have coming to you, [or]
Lay down on the ground and let the tears run from you,
Crying to the grass and trees and heaven finally on your knees
Let me live again, let life come find me wanting.
Spring must strike again against the shield of winter.

175b-TIME TABLE – C1 Sol M

Genesis

A carved oak table,
tells a tale
of times when kings and queens

sipped wine from goblets gold,
and the brave would lead their ladies from out

of the room to arbours cool.


A time of valour,

and legends born
a time when honour meant

much more to a man than life
and the days knew only strife to tell right

from wrong
through lance and sword.


Why, why

can we never be sure till we die
or have killed for an answer,


why, why

do we suffer each race to believe
that no race has been grander


it seems because through time and space
though names may change each face retains

the mask it wore.

 

A dusty table
musty smells
tarnished silver lies

discarded upon the floor
only feeble light

descends through a film of grey
that scars the panes.


gone the carving,
and those who left their mark,
gone the kings and queens

now only the rats hold sway
and the weak must die

according to nature's law
as old as they.


Why, why

can we never be sure till we die
or have killed for an answer,
why, why

do we suffer each race to believe
that no race has been grander

it seems because

through time and space
though names may change each face retains

the mask it wore.

176a-THE SILENT SUN – Re M

Genesis

 

The silent sun that never shines
She is the warmth of my lonely heart
The motion of a turning wheel
Can't you stop it and look around?

Baby you feel so close
I wish you could see my love
Baby you've changed my life
I'm trying to show you...

A tiny stone that hides from me
Can't you see that I'm just outside?
A mountain stream that chills the sea
Can't you feel in your useless pride?

 

Baby you feel so close
I wish you could see my love
Baby you've changed my life
I'm trying to show you...


When night reveals a star-filled sky
I want to hold it in my hands
When snowflakes heal the ugly ground
Your beauty hides the joy I've found

Baby you feel so close
I wish you could see my love
Baby you've changed my life
I'm trying to show you...

176b-YOUR OWN SPECIAL WAY – Do M

Genesis

 

Go far enough and you will reach,

A place where the sea runs underneath.

We'll see our shadow,

high in the sky,

Dying away in the night.

 

I've sailed the world for seven years,

And left all I love behind in tears.

Oh, won't you come here,

wherever you are,

I've been all alone long enough.

 

You, you have your own special way,

Of holding my hand keep it way 'bove the water,

Don't ever let go

Oh no, no, no.

 

You, you have your own special way,

Of turning the world so it's facing

The way that I'm going. Don't ever

Don't ever stop.

 

Whose seen the wind not you or I,

But when the ship moves she's passing by.

Between you and me I really don't think,

 

She knows where she's going at all.

 

You, you have your own special way,

Of carrying me twice round the world

Never closer to home than the day,

The day I started.

 

You, you have your own special way,

Hold onto my hand keep it way 'bove the water,

Don't ever let go no, no, no.

 

What mean the dreams night after night.

The man in the moon's a blinding light.

Won't you come out whoever you are,

You've followed me quite long enough.

 

You, you have your own special way,

Of holding my hand,

Don't ever let go.

 

You, you have your own special way,

Of turning the world so it's facing

The way that I'm going,

Don't ever,

Don't ever leave me

177a-ME AND SARAH JANE – Do M

Genesis

 

The fires are burning in another land,
don't start counting, don't start counting.
colder and colder, the ice is moving closer
and it gets me down.
going round and round

and down the same old track.

pack on my back, going swiftly nowhere,
heart in my ear beating like a drum.
where will you go?

all by yourself
(hah, hah, hah, hah, hah, hah.)

and now i'm standing on the corner.
waiting in the rain,
but then in sunlight without warning,
i invent a name,
me and Sarah Jane,
we had a special thing going,
me and Sarah Jane.

it was a time of love and laughter,
it wouldn't come again,
we had our round of joy but after,

 

then began the pain,
me and Sarah Jane.
we had a special thing going,
me and Sarah jane,
Sarah …Jane.


searching for a clue. traces on the sand.
first i'm flying, going round round round,
then i'm sliding going down down down,
doesn't matter where i start i always end up
falling through those same old crowded rooms.

me and Sarah Jane, we had it coming all the pain,
walking down the streets,

and finding nothing is the same,
and now the city lights are dimming one by one,
it costs too much money to keep them all on.

me and Sarah Jane,
in silence walk along the shore,
tears of joy and mocking laughter,
words lost in the wind.
the tide was rising,
but there we stayed,
we had no fear of dying
we weren't afraid.

177b-I KNOW WHAT I LIKE (IN YOUR WARDROBE) – La M

Genesis

 

It's one o'clock and time for lunch,
When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench,
I can always hear them talk.

There's always been Ethel:
"Jacob, wake up! You've got to tidy your room now."
And then Mister Lewis:
"Isn't it time that he was out on his own?"
Over the garden wall,

two little lovebirds - cuckoo to you!
Keep them mowing blades sharp ....

I know what I like,

and I like what I know;
getting better in your wardrobe,

stepping one beyond your show.

 

Sunday night, Mr Farmer called, said:
"Listen son, you're wasting time;

there's a future for you
in the fire escape trade. Come up to town!"
But I remembered a voice from the past;
"Gambling only pays when you're winning"
- I had to thank old Miss Mort

for schooling a failure.
Keep them mowing blades sharp ....

I know what I like,

and I like what I know;
getting better in your wardrobe,

stepping one beyond your show.

 

I know what I like,

and I like what I know;
getting better in your wardrobe,

stepping one beyond your show.

When the sun beats down and I lie on the bench,
I can always hear them talk.
Me, I'm just a lawnmower - you can tell me by the way I walk.

178a-DANCIN WITH THE MOONLIT KNIGHT – Do# m

Genesis

 

"Can you tell me where my country lies?"
said the unifaun to his true love's eyes.
"It lies with me!" cried the Queen of Maybe
for her merchandise, he traded in his prize.

"Paper late!" cried a voice in the crowd.
"Old man dies!"

The note he left

was signed 'Old Father Thames'
it seems he's drowned;
selling England by the pound.

Citizens of Hope & Glory,
Time goes by

it's the 'time of your life'.
Easy now, sit you down.
Chewing through your Wimpey dreams,
they eat without a sound;
digesting England by the pound.

*Young man says 'you are what you eat' - eat well.
Old man says 'you are what you wear' - wear well.
You know what you are, you don't give a damn;
bursting your belt that is your homemade sham.

 

The Captain leads

his dance right on through the night
join the dance ....
Follow on! Till the Grail sun sets in the mould.
Follow on! Till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout.

There's a fat old lady outside the saloon;
laying out the credit she plays Fortune.
The deck is uneven right from the start;
all of their hands are playing apart.

The Captain leads his dance right on through the night
- join the dance ....
Follow on! A Round Table-talking down we go.
You're the show!
Off we go with: - You play the hobbyhorse,
I'll play the fool.
We'll tease the bull
ringing round & loud, loud & round.
Follow on! With a twist of the world we go.
Follow on! Till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout

178b-MORE FOOL ME – C1 La m

Genesis

 

Here am I
Who while away the mornings
Since you've gone
Too long have I lay alone
Not knowing which way to turn.

And there you are
Quite sure that you were right
Knowing full well
That I'd be the first one
To go down.

And you'd be the one who was laughing
Except when things were'nt going you're way
Then the lady would say that she'd had enough
Wandering around on her own
.

 

The day you left
I think you knew you'd not be back
Well at least it would seem that way
Because you never said goodbye.
But when it comes round to you and me
I'm sure it will work out alright.

And you'd be the one who was laughing
Giving me something I don't need
You know, I'd always hold you and keep you warm
Oh! more fool me.

But when it comes
Round to you and me
I ask myself
Do I really believe
In your love.

Yes, I'm sure it will work out alright

180b-COCKOO COCKOON – Re M

Genesis

 

 Wrapped up in some powdered

wool-I guess I'm losing touch.

Don't tell me I'm dying, 'cos I ain't changed that much.

The only sound is water drops,

I wonder where the hell I am,

Some kind of jam?

 

Cuckoo Cocoon have I come to,

too soon for you?

 

There's nothing I can recognise;

this is nowhere that I've known.

With no sign of life at all, I guess that I'm alone,

And I feel so secure that I know

 this can't be real but I feel good.

 

Cuckoo cocoon have I come to,

too soon for you?

 

I wonder if I'm a prisoner locked up

in some Brooklyn jail

-or some sort of Jonah shut up inside the whale.

No-I'm still Rael and I'm stuck in some kind of cave,

what could've saved me?

Cuckoo cocoon have I come to, too soon for you?

181a-SEVEN STONES – Sib M

Genesis

 

I heard the old man tell his tale:

 

Tinker, alone within a storm,

And losing hope he clears

the leaves beneath a tree,

 

Seven stones

Lay on the ground.

Within the seventh house a friend was found.

And the changes of no consequence

will pick up the reins from nowhere.

 

Sailors, in peril on the sea,

Amongst the waves a rock looms

nearer, and not yet seen.

 

They see a gull

Flying by.

The Captain turns the boat and he asks not why.

And the changes of no consequence

will pick up the reins from nowhere.

Nowhere.

 

Ahhhh, ahhhh

 

*Despair that tires the world

brings the old man laughter.

The laughter of the world

only grieves him,

believe him,

The old man's guide is chance.

 

I heard the old man tell his tale:

 

Organ break

 

Farmer, who knows not when to sow,

Consults the old man

clutching money in his hand.

 

And with a shrug,

The old man smiled,

Took the money, left the farmer wild.

And the changes of no consequence

will pick up the reins from nowhere.

Nowhere.

 

Ahhhh, ahhhh

Despair that tires the world

brings the old man laughter.

The laughter of the world

only grieves him, believe him,

The old man's guide is chance.

181b-DANCE O A VOLCANO – Sib M

Genesis

 

Holy mother of god You’ve got

to go faster  than that to

get to the top.
Dirty old mountain
All covered in smoke,

she can turn you to stone
So you better start doing it right


Better start doing it right.
Better start doing it right.


You’re halfway up

and you’re halfway down
And the pack on your back

is turning you around.
Throw it away,

you won’t need it up there,

and remember
You don’t look back

whatever you do.
Better start doing it right.


On your left and on your right
Crosses are green and crosses are blue
Your friends didn’t make it through.

 

Out of the night and out of the dark
Into the fire and into the fight
Well that’s the way the heroes go,

ho! ho! ho!

Through a crack in mother earth,
Blazing hot, the molten rock
Spills out over the land.
And the lavas the lover

who licks your boots away. hey! hey! hey!
If you don’t want to boil as well.

B-b-better start the dance
D-d-do you want to dance with me.

You better start doing it right.
The music’s playing,

the notes are right
Put your left foot first

and move into the light.
The edge of this hill

is the edge of the world
And if you’re going to cross you

better start doing it right
Better start doing it right.
You better start doing it right. Let the dance begin

182a-MANY TOO MANY – Sol# M

Genesis

 

Many too many have stood where I stand

Many more will stand here too,

I think what I find strange is the way you built me up

Then knocked me down again.

 

The part was fun but now its over,

Why cant I just leave the stage?

Maybe thats because you securely locked me up

Then threw away the key.

 

Oh mama,

Please would you find the key.

Oh pretty mama,

Please wont you let me go free.

I thought I was lucky

I thought that Id got it made.

How could I be so blind?

 

You said good-bye on a corner

That I thought led to the straight.

You set me on a firmly laid and simple course

Then removed the road.

 

Oh mama,

Please help me find my way.

Oh pretty mama,

Please lead me through the next day.

I thought I was lucky

Oh I thought that Id got it made.

How could I be so blind? oh no...

182b-SNOWBOUND – La m

Genesis

 

Lay your body down upon the midnight snow,

 Feel the cold of winter in your hair

 Here in a world of your own,  In a casing that's grown

 To a children's delight

 That arrived overnight.

 

And here they come to play their magic games

 Carving names upon your frozen hand.

 Here in a world of your own, Like a sleeper whose eyes

 Sees the pain with surprise

 As it smothers your cries

 They'll never never know…

 

Hey there's a Snowman

 Hey, Hey what a Snowman

 Pray for the Snowman

 Ooh, Ooh what a Snowman

 They say a snow year's a good year

 Filled with the love of all who lie so deep.

 

Smiling faces tear your body to the ground

 Covered red that only we can see.

 Here in a ball that they made

 From the snow on the ground,

 See it rolling away

 Wild eyes to the sky

 They'll never, never know.

 

Hey there's a Snowman

 Hey what a Snowman

 Pray for the Snowman

 Ooh, Ooh what a Snowman

 They say a snow year's a good year

 Filled with the love of all who lie so deep.

 

Hey there goes the Snowman

 Hey there what a Snowman

 Hey there lies the Snowman

 Hey he was a Snowman

 They say a snow year's a good year

 Filled with the love of all who lie so deep.

518a-LOOKING FOR SOMEONE – Sol m

Genesis

 

Looking for someone,

I guess I'm doing that,

 Trying to find a mem'ry in a dark room.

 Dirty man, you're looking like a Buddha,

 I know you well -

yeah.

 

 Keep on a straight line,

I don't believe I can,

 Trying to find a needle in a haystack.

 Chilly wind you're piercing like a dagger,

 It hurts me so -

yeah.

 

 Nobody needs to discover me,

 I'm back again.

 You see the sunlight

through the  Trees to keep you warm,

 In peaceful shades of green.

 

*Yet in the darkness of my mind

 

Damascus wasn't far behind.

 

 Lost in a subway,

I guess I'm losing time,

 There's a man looking at a magazine.

 You're such a fool, your mumbo-jumbo

 Never tells me anything -

yeah.

 

 Nobody needs to discover me,

 I'm back again.

 

 You feel the ashes from the  Fire

that kept you warm.

 Its comfort disappears,

 But still the only friend I know

 Would never tell me where I go.

 

 Looking for someone,

 And now I've found myself a name.

 Come away, leave me,

 All that I have I will give.

 Leave me, leave me,

 All that I am I will give.

519a-ANYWAY – Sol m

Genesis

 

All the pumping's nearly over for my sweet heart,

 This is the one for me,

 Time to meet the chef,  Oh boy!

running man is out of death.

 

 Feel cold and old, it's getting hard

to catch my breath.  it's back to ash,

now, you've had your flash boy

 The rocks, in time, compress  your blood

 

to oil, your flesh to coal,

 enrich the soil,

 not everybody's goal.

 

 Anyway,

they say she comes on a pale horse,

 But I'm sure I hear a train.

 O boy!

I don't even feel no pain

 

 I guess I must be driving myself insane.

 

Damn it all!

does earth plug a hole in heaven,

 Or heaven plug a hole in the earth

 

'how wonderful to be so profound,

 when everything you are

is dying underground.' 

 

--INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

 

 I feel the pull on the rope, let me off at the rainbow.

 I could have been exploding in space

 Different orbits for my bones

 Not me,

just quietly buried in stones,

 

 Keep the deadline open with my maker!

 See me stretch;

for God's elastic acre

 The doorbell rings and it's

"Good morning Rael”

 So sorry you had to wait.

 It won't be long, yeh!

 She's very rarely late."

517b-IN THE WILDERNESS – Fa M

Genesis

 

Leaving all the world to play they disappear

 And the leaves have gathered dust to run like deer

 Tearing pieces from our lives to feed the dawn

 Mist surrounds the seagulls christened by the storm

 

 Music, all I hear is music

 guaranteed to please

 And I look for something else

 

Rain drops

pouring down the rooftops

 Flowing in the drains

 As the people run their lives

 As their lives are run by time

 

Fighting enemies with weapons made to kill

 Death is easy as a substitute for pride

 Victors join together, happy in their bed

 Leaving cold outside the children of the dead

 

 Music, all I hear is music

 guaranteed to please

 And I look for something else

 

Rain drops

pouring down the rooftops

 Flowing in the drains

 As the people run their lives 

As their lives are run by (bis)

518b-HARLEQUIN – Sol M

Genesis

 

Came the night

a mist dissolved the trees

 And in the broken light

colours fly, fading by.

 

 Pale and cold

as figures fill the glade

 Grey is the web they spin,

on and on, and on and on.

 

 *Through the flame

still summer lingers on

 Though her pictures soon shatter.

 

 All, always the same.

 But there appears in the shades of dawning,

 Though your eyes are dim,

 All of the pieces in the sky.

 

 There was once

a harvest in this land.

 

Reap from the turquoise sky,

harlequin, harlequin,

 

 Dancing round,

three children fill the glade,

 Theirs was the laughter in

the winding stream, and in between.

 

 *Close your door,

the picture fades again

 From the flames in the firelight.

 

 All, always the same,  But there

appears in the shades of dawning,

 Though your eyes are dim,

 All of the pieces in the sky.

 

 All, all is not lost, 

And light appears in the shades of dawning

 When your eyes can see

 Order the pieces, put them back,

put them back.

519b-ROBBERY, ASSAUT AND BATTERY – C1 Re M

Genesis

 

The streets were deserted

though the police were alerted,

 They considered the phone call a hoax.

 Furtively glancing

then jauntily prancing

 The youth caught the guards unaware.

 

 Slipping between them

he ought to have seen then

 The eyes and their owner so near.

 With torch shining bright

he strode on in the night

 Till he came to the room with the safe.

 

 *"Hello son, I hope you're having fun."

 "You've got it wrong Sir,  I'm only the cleaner."

 With that he fired, the other saying as he died,

 "You've done me wrong,"

 it's the same old song

 forever, forever.

 

Robbery, assault and battery,

 The felon and his felony.

 Robbery, assault and battery,

 The felon and his felony.

 

 Picked up the diamonds

and bundles of fivers

 He pushed them well down in his sack.

 But the alarm had been sounded,

he was completely surrounded

 But he had some more tricks up his sleeve.

 

 *"Come outside with your hands held high."

 "You'll not get me alive Sir,

I promise you that Sir."

 With that he fired, the other saying as he died

 "You've done me wrong,"

it's the same old song

forever, forever.

 

 Robbery, assault and battery,

 The felon and his felony.

 Robbery, assault and battery,

 The felon and his felony.

531a-SUPPER'S READY – Fa# m

Genesis

 

 Walking across the sitting-room,

 I turn the television off.

 Sitting beside you,

I look into your eyes.

 

 As the sound of motor cars

fades in the night time,

 I swear I saw your face change,

 it didn't seem quite right.

 

 ...And it's hello babe

with your guardian eyes so blue

 Hey my baby

don't you know our love is true.

 

 Coming closer with our eyes,

a distance falls around our bodies.

 Out in the garden,

the moon seems very bright,

 

Six saintly shrouded men

move across the lawn slowly.

 The seventh walks in front

with a cross held high in hand.

 

 ...And it's hey babe

your supper's waiting for you.

 Hey my baby,

don't you know our love is true.

 

 *I've been so far from here,

 Far from your warm arms.

 It's good to feel you again,

 It's been a long long time. Hasn't it?

 

SINTH SOLO

 

 I know a farmer who looks after the farm.

 With water clear, he cares for all his harvest.

 I know a fireman who looks after the fire…

 

 You, can't you see he's fooled you all.

 Yes, he's here again,

can't you see he's fooled you all.

Share his peace,  Sign the lease.

 He's a supersonic scientist,

 He's the guaranteed eternal sanctuary man.

 

 Look, look into my mouth he cries,

 And all the children lost down many paths,

 I bet my life you'll walk inside

 Hand in hand,  gland in gland

 With a spoonful of miracle,

 He's the guaranteed eternal sanctuary.

 

 We will rock you, rock you little snake,

 We will keep you snug and warm.

 

 Wearing feelings on our faces

while our faces took a rest,

 We walked across the fields

to see the children of the West,

 But we saw a host of dark skinned warriors

 standing still below the ground,

 Waiting for battle.

The fight's begun, they've been released.

 Killing foe for peace...

bang, bang, bang. Bang, bang, bang...

 And they're giving me a wonderful potion,

 'Cos I cannot contain my emotion.

 And even though I'm feeling good,

 Something tells me I'd better

activate my prayer capsule.

 

 Today's a day to celebrate,

the foe have met their fate.

 The order for rejoicing and dancing

has come from our warlord.

 

 Wandering through the chaos the battle has left,

 We climb up a mountain of human flesh,

 To a plateau of green grass, and green trees full of life.

 A young figure sits still by a pool,

 He's been stamped "Human Bacon" by some butchery tool.

 (He is you)

 Social Security took care of this lad.

 We watch in reverence, as Narcissus is turned to a flower.

022a-BEHIND THE LINES – Do M

Genesis

 

I held the book so tightly in my hands,

I saw your picture, heard you call my name

There was something strange, I could not look away

I wanted to be there, I wanted to go

 

You gave no warning

You gave me no reason

But I was with you

Right by your side

Just give me the strength,

And I will help you

And they can try their hardest,

Cos they don't frighten me

 

It is written in the book

 

It is hotter than I've known before,

But I feel so cold, and I don't know why

But if the fire within your heart can beat the storm

Then I really believe, you could make it right

 

Ooh the time has come now

We must show our feelings

But I'm looking right through you

And your heart is empty

 

Whatever happened to you it's too late to change now

There's nowhere you can run to, no place to hide

Ah you let me down!

 

...but wait a minute, I don't understand

It's getting stronger, so grab my hand

Don't wanna leave you, don't wanna go

But I'm losing all control

Can't you see me? I'm slipping away

I can only stay if you've the will to keep me here

 

It's written in the book

 

Oh so many times since then I've read those words

Just waiting to see you, can you see me?

022b-BURNING ROPE – Re M

Genesis

 

The warming sun, the cooling rain,

The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,

The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you

Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.

The words of love, the cries of hate,

And the man in the moon who seduced you

Then finally loosed you.

 

You climbed upon a burning rope

to escape the mob below,

But you had put the flaming out

so that others could now follow,

 

To be out of the bounds and the barks

of those who do not wish you well.

 

You must blaze a trail of your own, unknown, alone,

But keep in mind

Don't live today for tomorrow like you were immortal.

The only survivors on this world of ours are

 

The warming sun, the cooling rain,

The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,

The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you

Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.

The words of love, the cries of hate,

And the man in the moon who seduced you

Then finally loosed you.

 

You're old and disillusioned now as you realise at last,

That all you have accomplished here will have soon all turned to dust

 

You dream of a future after life, well that's as maybe, I don't know.

But you can't take what you left behind, you're all alone.

So keep in mind

Don't live today for tomorrow like you were immortal.

The only survivors on this world of ours are

 

The warming sun, the cooling rain,

The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze,

The lightning bolt that frees the sky for you

Yet only eagles seem to pass on through.

The words of love, the cries of hate,

And the man in the moon...

023a-THE LAMIA – Si M7

Genesis

 

The scent grows richer,

he knows he must be near,

He finds a long passageway

lit by chandelier.

 

Each step he takes, the perfumes change

From familiar fragrance to flavours strange.

A magnificent chamber

meets his eye.

 

Inside, a long rose-water pool

is shrouded by fine mist.

Stepping in the moist silence,

with a warm breeze he's gently kissed.

 

Thinking he is quite alone,

He enters the room, as if it were his own

But ripples on the sweet pink water

Reveal some company

unthought of -

Rael stands astonished doubting his sight,

Struck by beauty, gripped in fright;

Three vermilion snakes of female face

The smallest motion, filled with grace.

 

Muted melodies fill the echoing hall,

But there is no sign of warning in the siren's call:

 

"Rael welcome, we are the Lamia of the pool.

We have been waiting

for our waters to bring you cool."

 

Putting fear beside him,

he trusts in beauty blind,

He slips into the nectar,

 leaving his shredded clothes behind.

 

With their tongues, they test, taste and judge

 all that is mine.

They move in a series of caresses

That glide up and down my spine.

 

As they nibble the fruit of my flesh,

I feel no pain,

Only a magic

that a name would stain.

With the first drop of my blood in their veins

Their faces are convulsed in mortal pains.

The fairest cries, "We all have loved you, Rael"

 

 

Each empty snakelike body floats,

Silent sorrow in empty boats.

A sickly sourness fills the room,

The bitter harvest of a dying bloom.

 

Looking for motion

I know I will not find,

I stroke the curls now turning pale,

 in which I'd lain entwined

 

"O Lamia, your flesh that remains I

 will take as my food"

It is the scent of garlic

that lingers on my chocolate fingers.

 

Looking behind me,

the water turns icy blue,

The lights are dimmed and once again

the stage is set for you.

024a-ALL IN A MOUSE'S NIGHT – C1 Do M

Genesis

 

[Loving Couple:]

I can't see you but I know you're there.

Got to get beside you 'cause it's really cold out here.

Come up close to me you'll soon be warm,

Hold me tightly like we're sheltering from a storm.

 

[Mouse:]

Think I might go out for a stroll

Into the night, and out of this hole.

Maybe find me a meal.

Walking along this new shag pile

Presents a problem all the while.

Nearly the door.

 

Suddenly he bumps into wood, the door is closed.

A voice from the bed, he'll be exposed.

Which way to run, must make for the hole,

The light's been turned on, he's blind as a mole in coal.

 

Now I can see they're coming at me,

They've blocked off my door, I haven't a chance in hell

 

[Couple:]

Come on baby let the poor thing go.

I'm not sleeping with that thing around here, no.

Alright then, I'll fetch a box from below,

Guard him carefully, they're very quick you know.

[Mouse:]

The door's been opened, my chance to escape.

Must run out quick, better sorry than late.

I'm out on the stairs.

They won't catch me now, I've the run of the house now.

I'll make it downstairs and into the breadbin.

That would be nice.

 

Suddenly he bumps into fur, that's very unwise,

A cat is much quicker than men and their eyes.

The chase that ensues can have only one end,

Unless outside help steps in for our friend in need.

 

But now the cat comes in for the kill,

His paw is raised, soon blood will spill, yes it will.

[Cat:]

Hard luck mouse, this is the end of your road.

The signpost says inside me, let me bear your heavy load.

 

But it's not to be, that final pounce

Knocks a jar upon his head, and lays him out.

Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah.

 

But it's all in a mouse's night

To take on all those who would fight.

 

[Cat's Story:]

There I was with my back to the wall,

Then comes this monster mouse, he's ten feet tall,

With teeth and claws to match.

It only took one blow.

025a-COUNTING OUT TIME – C1 Sol M

Genesis

 

I'm counting out time,

Got the whole thing down by numbers.

All those numbers!

Give me guidance!

O Lord I need that now.

 

The day of judgement's come,

And you can bet that I've been resting,

for this testing,

Digesting every word the experts say.

 

Erogenous zones I love you.

Without you, what would a poor boy do?

 

Found a girl I wanted to date,

Thought I'd better get it straight.

Went to buy a book before it's too late.

Don't leave nothing to fate.

 

I studied every line, every page in the book,

Now, I've got the real thing here,

I'm gonna take a look, take a look.

This is Real!

 

I'm counting out time,

hoping it goes like I planned it,

'cos I understand it.

Look! I've found the hotspots, Figs 1-9.

 

- still counting out time,

got my finger on the button,

"Don't say nuttin - just lie there still

And I'll get you turned on just fine."

 

Erogenous zones I love you.

Without you, what would a poor boy do?

 

Touch and go with 1-6.

Bit of trouble in zone No. 7.

Gotta remember all of my tricks.

There's heaven ahead in No. 11!

 

Getting crucial responses, dilation of the pupils.

"Honey get hip! It's time to unzip,

to unzip, zip, zip-a-zip-a-zip.

Whipee!"

(Take it away Mr. Guitar)

- Move over Casanova -

I'm counting out time,

reaction none to happy, Please don't slap me,

I'm a red blooded male and the book

said I could not fail.

 

I'm counting out time,

 I got unexpected distress from my mistress,

I'll get my money back

from the bookstore right away.

 

Erogenous zones I question you -

Without you, what would a poor boy do?

Without you, what would a poor boy do?

Without you, mankind handkinds thru' the blues.

026a-CARPET CRAWLERS – La M

Genesis

 

There is lambswool under my naked feet

The wool is soft and warm,

gives off some kind of heat

 

A salamander scurries

into flame to be destroyed

Imaginary creatures

are trapped in birth on celluloid

 

The fleas cling to the golden fleece

Hoping they'll find peace

Each thought and gesture

are caught in celluloid

There's no hiding in my memory

There's no room

to void

 

The crawlers cover the floor

in the red ochre corridor

For my second sight of people,

they've more lifeblood than before

 

They're moving in time

to a heavy wooden door

Where the needle's eye is winking,

 closing in on the poor

 

The carpet crawlers

heed their callers:

"We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in,… to get out"

 

There's only one direction

in the faces that I see

It's upward to the ceiling,

where the chambers said to be

 

Like the forest fight for sunlight,

that takes root in every tree

They are pulled up by the magnet,

 believing that they're free

 

The carpet crawlers

heed their callers:

"We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in, to get out"

Mild mannered supermen

are held in kryptonite

 

And the wise and foolish virgins

giggle with their bodies glowing bright

 

Through a door a harvest feast

 is lit by candlelight

It's the bottom of a staircase

that spirals out of sight

 

The carpet crawlers

heed their callers:

"We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in, to get out"

 

The porcelain mannekin

with shattered skin fears attack

And the eager pack lift up their pitchers,

 they carry all they lack

The liquid has congealed,

which has seeped out through the crack

And the tickler takes his stickleback…

 

The carpet crawlers

heed their callers:

"We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in, to get out"

 

The liquid has congealed,

which has seeped out through the crack

And the tickler takes his stickleback…

heed their callers:

"We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in to get out

We've got to get in, to get out"

Lay your body down upon the midnight snow

Feel the cold of winter in your hair

Here in a world of your own

In a casing that's grown

To the children's delight

That arrived on the night

 

Here they come to play their magic games

Carving names upon your frozen hand

Here in a world of your own

028a-ELEVENTH EARL OF MAR – Re M

Genesis

 

The sun had been up for a couple of hours,

Covered the ground with a layer of gold.

Spirits were high and the raining had stopped,

The larder was low, but--boy!--that wasn't all.

 

Eleventh Earl of Mar

Couldn't get them very far.

Daddy!!! Oh, Daddy!!! You promised.

 

Out on the road in the direction of Perth,

Backwards and forwards in a circle they went.

Found a city half open and ready to greet

Those conquering heroes with blisters on their feet.

 

Eleventh Earl of Mar

Somehow got them all this far.

Daddy!!! You promised, you promised.

 

See the steward all dressed up,

He's got eyes in the back of his head ...

Who came in a cockleshell boat

That could only just float,

Couldn't even lift a sword,

Dressed too fine and smelling of wine.Daddy, you've got to go!!!

Here comes the bishop all dressed up,

He's gonna bless you if you're ready to pay.

One wave of his funny old stick,

There's a band of light across your eyes.

 

Waited a week, still they hadn't appeared,

That glorious timing that everyone feared.

So they're riding along on the crest of a wave,

They're headed for London, and that will be their grave.

 

Eleventh Earl of Mar,

Well!!! he couldn't get them down that far.

Daddy!!! I'm waiting, I'm waiting.

 

Time to go to bed now,

Never seems too keen

To be a guest now

In a house of dreams.

 

Flying from a hillside

Beckoning the trees

A sailboat's awning

Mimicking the breeze.

I'm fighting gravity falling

My Daddy won't let them get me

A voice screams seems to be calling

The face turns features are burning.

 

Daddy, you've got to go!!!

See the fifteen going by,

Tell the Lairds and the Lords

They're running backwards today,

And once again you stand alone.

 

Bury your memories bury your friends,

Leave it alone for a year or two.

Till the stories go hazy

And the legends come true,

Then do it again.

Some things never end.

 

Eleventh Earl of Mar

Won't be going very far.

You promised, You promised, you promised.

Daddy!!!

030a-THE LADY LIES – C1 Si m

Genesis

 

The man steps out in the moonlight

At the sound of a scream from below.

He thinks he is a warrior

So he picks up his sword and goes.

 

From the mouth of the monster

He rescues the maiden fair.

But we know she's a demon

Come to lure him to demon's lair.

 

Through restless foliage

and tall trees he leads

To a house in a clearing,

a place in her fear she calls home.

 

"Come with me, I need you,

I fear the dark and I live all alone.

I'll give you wine and food too

And something special after if you like."

 

And though his body bids him

To enter in with her,

There was something in her manner

That his mind could not ignore.

Also it is whispered

In the kingdom far and wide,

To beware a little cottage

In the forest in a glade.

 

For who knows what magic

takes place in his world?

So he just thanks her kindly

 preparing to go on his way.

 

"Come with me, I need you,

I fear the dark and I live all alone.

I'll give you wine and food too

And something special after if you like.

 

Come to my garden,

Taste the fruits and the spices of love.

You can't resist me,

I'm the kind that your dreams tell you of."

 

"So glad you could make it

We had everything arranged.

So glad you saw fit to pay a call."

Some men never listen,

And others never learn,

But why this man did as he did

Only he will ever know.

 

He knew he was walking

Into a waiting trap,

Neatly set up for him

With a bait so richly wrapped.

 

So he went inside there

to take on what he found

But he never escaped them,

for who can escape what he desires?

 

"Come with me, I need you,

I fear the dark and I live all alone.

I'll give you wine and food too

And something special after if you like."

031a-LILYWHITE LILITH – C1 La M

Genesis

 

The chamber was in confusion

All the voices shouting loud

I could only just hear

A voice quite near say

"Please help me through the crowd"

 

Said if I helped her through

She could help me too

But I could see that she was wholly blind

But from her pale face

And her pale skin

A moonlight shined

 

Lilywhite Lilith

She gonna take you through the tunnel of night

Lilywhite Lilith

She gonna lead you right

 

When I'd led her through the people

The angry noise began to grow

She said "Let me feel

The way the breezes blow

And I'll show you where to go"

 

So I followed her into a big round cave

She said "They're coming for you

Now don't be afraid"

Then she sat me down

On a cold stone throne

Carved in jade

 

Lilywhite Lilith

She gonna take you through the tunnel of night

Lilywhite Lilith

She gonna lead you right

 

She leaves me in my darkness

I have to face

Face my fear

And the darkness

Closes in on me

I can hear a whirring sound

Growing near

 

I can see the corner of the tunnel

Lit up

By whatever's coming here

Two golden globes

Float into the room

And a blaze of white light

Fills the air

031b-ONE DAY – Do M

Genesis

 

Don't get me wrong

I think I'm in love

But the feeling in the word is more

Than your crystal eyes will ever see in me

Don't get me wrong

Open your eyes

Although I cannot show my heart

I'll watch and hope while you are near to me.

 

One day I'll capture you

And call you to my side

One day I'll take you from

The boredom of our lives

One day we'll fly away

To the kingdom of my dreams

One day I'll find myself

And wrap it in my love for you.

 

Birds of the sky, may I borrow your wings?

Very soon I'll ask my love

To travel with me to the world outside

Cherry trees, may I borrow your bloom?

Very soon I'll ask my love

To come inside the nest I'll build alone.

 

One day I'll capture you

And call you to my side

One day I'll take you from

The boredom of our lives

One day we'll fly away

To the kingdom of my dreams 

One day I'll find myself

And wrap it in my love for you.

 

Animal friends

Help me decide

When should I ask my love to leave?

I'll beg of you that she'll say yes to me

Breathe in deep

Now!!! is the time

She looks at me and gently smiles

As if she knew I'd ask her all the time.

 

One day I'll capture you

And call you to my side

One day I'll take you from

The boredom of our lives

One day we'll fly away

To the kingdom of my dreams

One day I'll find myself

And wrap it in my love for you.

032a-ONE-EYED HOUND – C1 Mi M

Genesis

 

Mister you've been caught at last

 Chasing dogs in the moonlight

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

 Mister you've got one more chance

 If you catch the hound when the sun shines

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

And it's all gone wrong

 Night is the time for chasing

the one-eyed hound

 And it's all been tried before

 Night is the time for chasing

the one-eyed hound

 

Have you seen the one-eyed hound?

 Tell me where he's going

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

 Every place that I have been

 No-one else has seen him

 

This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

And it's all gone wrong

 Night is the time for chasing

 the one-eyed hound

 And it's all been tried before

 Night is the time for chasing

 the one-eyed hound

 

Everybody's telling me

exactly where to go

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

 People call and people talk

 But they don't reach agreement

 This man committed a sin

 This man he never can win

 

And it's all gone wrong

 Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound

 And it's all been tried before

 Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound

 Night is the time for chasing the one-eyed hound

032b-THE CONQUEROR – La M

Genesis

 

He climbs inside the looking glass

And points at anything he hates

He calls to you, Hey look out son

There's a gun they're pointing

At your pretty face.

 

And the heads they are a rolling

Cos the conqueror is on his way

And the justice day is coming

For the conqueror is on his way.

 

Five hundred little women

Are calling at their hero's door

Yes!!! their hero is working overtime

He's squirming on an empty floor.

 

And the heads they are a rolling

Cos the conqueror is on his way

And the justice day is coming

For the conqueror is on his way.

 

He's bought the castle on the hill

He's bought it just to knock it down

The local power shout him down

They say he's just an empty headed clown.

 

And the heads they are a rolling

Cos the conqueror is on his way

And the justice day is coming 

For the conqueror is on his way.

 

He's busy building monuments

To hide inside his empty grave

You there, can you find some souls

He's looking for some people to save.

 

And the heads they are a rolling

Cos the conqueror is on his way

And the justice day is coming

For the conqueror is on his way

And the words of love are killing him

The conqueror is on his way.

 

And the words of love

Were lying on an empty floor

Just in the place

Where the conqueror lay...

033a-THAT'S ME – Si m

Genesis

 

Every morning when the people are out

And I'm free to move around on my own

I look into the sun and I see a reflection

Of a sad and lonely shrivelled man

 

That's me, that's me

And I know it's how I'm always gonna be

 

Nothing to do, nothing to say

Nothing to hope, and nothing to pray

 

I can see, I can feel

I've forgotten what I'm meant to be

Won't come back, not if I try

 

They told me things about me that I didn't know

But I could tell they've told me lies

And it really goes to show

That everyone was wrong

 

 And they don't understand my ways

 But it's not me that's going wrong, it's them

 

I can see, I can feel

 

I've forgotten what I'm meant to be

Won't come back, not if I try

 

They told me things about me that I didn't know

 But I could tell they've told me lies

 And it really goes to show

 That everyone was wrong

 And they don't understand my ways

 But it's not me that's going wrong, it's them

 

Every morning when the people are out

And I'm free move around my own

I look into the sun and I see a reflection

Of a sad and lonely shrivelled man

 

That's me, that's me

And I know it's how I'm always gonna be

That's me, that's me

And I know it's how I'm always gonna be

 

Shrivelled old man Who hides from a world

He's never seen the light That can set him free

His vicious life Is such a shame

I wanna find out who's to blame

 

And that's me, oh that's me, aaoh

Set me free

033b-A WINTER'S TALE – La M

Genesis

 

The winter's bitterness is lost

It's the fireside warmth that comforts me

The peace for all my thoughts.

 

The night brings shadows to the street

It's the time for dreams of things to come

To creep inside their lives.

 

You're concealing every feeling

Can you find me, deep inside you

Let me touch you, let me keep you

Let me know you're there.

 

You're concealing every feeling

Can you find me, no

Yes!!! deep inside you're a part of me

Every day I need to know I'm there,

I'm there, I'm there.

 

The evening fantasy begins

In the sandy lanes that cross the fields

The gentle rain will fall.

 

The morning sweeps away the night

And the dreams of you still haunt my thoughts

Bring meaning to my life.

 

CHORUS

 

Can you hold me with your small hand

Prepare much,

Length and beauty of our tiny lives

Future's brighter now

Our world is everything to me, to know,

I'm there

Lord!!! You see the world is brighter than the sky

The sky is shining everywhere in our world

You know you never said in your many times,

All in me instead.

034a-IN THE BEGINNING – Mi M

Genesis

 

Ocean of motion

Squirming around and up and down

Pushing together

Scattering mountains all around you

 

That is the sound of a new born world

And the light from a curious sky

It has begun

You're in the hands of destiny

 

Thrashing with violence

Hurling its lava up and down

Furnace of frenzy

Burning with power uncontrolled

 

That is the sound of a new born world

And the light from a curious sky

It has begun

You're in the hands of destiny

 

 Is that the chariot with stallions gold?

   Is that a prince of heaven on the ground?

   Is that the roar of a thundercrash?

   This is my world and it's waiting to be crowned

   Father, son, looks down with happiness

   Life is on its way

 

Ocean of motion

Squirming around and up and down

Pushing together

Scattering mountains all around you

 

That is the sound of a new born world

And the light from a curious sky

It has begun

You're in the hands of destiny

 

   Is that the chariot with stallions gold?

   Is that a prince of heaven on the ground?

   Is that the roar of a thundercrash?

   This is my world and it's waiting to be crowned

   Father, son, looks down with happiness

   Life is on its way

091a-WHERE THE SOUR TURNS TO SWEET

C1 Mi M                 Genesis

 

We're waiting for you

Come and join us now

We need you with us

Come and join us now

 

Look inside your mind

See the darkness is creeping out

I can see in the softness there

Where the sunshine is gliding in

Fill your mind with love

Find the world of future glory

 

You can meet yourself

Where the sour turns to sweet

Leave your ugly selfish shell

To melt in the glowing flames

Can you sense the change?

See your eyes, now listen

 

We're waiting for you

Come and join us now

We want you with us

Come and join us now

 

Paint your face all white

To show the peace inside

Drift away while the saffron burns

To the land where the rainbow ends

Can you sense the change?

See your eyes in focus

 

We're waiting for you

Come and join us now

We need you with us

Come and join us now

 

We're waiting for you

Come and join us now

We need you with us

Come and join us now

 

We want you with us

Come and join us now

We need you with us

Come and join us now

091b-THE MUSICAL BOX – Si m

Genesis

 

Play me old king cole

That I may join with you,

All your hearts now seem so far from me

It hardly seems to matter now.

 

And the nurse will tell you lies

Of a kingdom beyond the skies.

But I am lost within this half-world,

It hardly seems to matter now.

 

Play me my song.Here it comes again.

Play me my song.Here it comes again.

 

Just a little bit,

Just a little bit more time,

Time left to live out my life.

La, la , la …

 

interlude

 

Play me my song.Here it comes again.

Play me my song.Here it comes again.

 

Old king cole was a merry old soul,

And a merry old soul was he.

So he called for his pipe,

And he called for his bowl,

And he called for his fiddlers three.

 

But the clock, tick-tock,

On the mantle piece -

And I want, and I feel, and I know, and I touch,

Her warmth...

 

Shes a lady, shes got time,

Brush back your hair,

and let me get to know your face.

Shes a lady, she is mine.

Brush back your hair, and let me get to know your flesh.

 

Ive been waiting here for so long

And all this time has passed me by

It doesn’t seem to matter now

 

You stand there with your fixed expression

Casting doubt on all I have to say.

Why dont you touch me, touch me,

Why dont you touch me, touch me,

Touch me now, now, now, now, now...

008b-ALONE AGAIN – Re M

Genesis

 

There's nothing here that I can understand

And no one cares I'm a lonely man

I touch your face and I don't know why

I call your name but you're going by

Now I'm alone again.

 

I have no name for each and every day

Until the year is done and fades away

There's a time in between the two

The old years gone by but it's not the new

And I, I, I...

 

I know that'll be all

Alone again, alone again tonight oh I'm

Alone again, alone again tonight oh I'm

Alone again, and it seems to me that every time I try to change

Say that you're say that you'll

Help me reach the other side

 

When the morning comes the sun is out

And warms me up again

What a funny world it is for me

And all I'll never be

 

It's not enough, it's not enough

This feeling I'm feeling inside

Oh I know it I know tonight that I'll be

 

On my own tonight, alone again tonight

Oh I'm alone again, alone again tonight

Oh I'm alone again, and it seems to me that everytime I try to change

Say that you'll, say that you'll

Help me reach the other side

Help me please cos I know I'm gonna be

On my own again alone again tonight...
