Genesis - Abacab

Look up on the wall, there on the floor, 
Under the pillow, behind the door. 
There's a crack in the mirror. 
Somewhere there's a hole in a window-pane. 
Do you think I'm to blame? 
Tell me do you think I'm to blame? 

(When they do it) you're never there. 
(When they show it) you stop and stare. 
(Abacab) He's in anywhere. 
(Abacab) 

If you're wrapping up the world 
'Cos you've taken someone elses girl, 
When they turn on the pillow, 
Even when they answer the telephone, 
Don't you think that by now, 
Tell me, don't you think that by now. 

(When they do it) you're never there. 
(When they show it) you stop and stare. 
(Abacab) He's in anywhere. 
(Abacab) Doesn't really care. 

you want it, you got it, you gotta go 
you want it, you got it, now you know 

It's an illusion, It's a game, 
Or reflection of someone else's name. 
When you wake in the morning, 
Wake and find you're covered in cellophane. 

Well, there's a hole in there somewhere. 
Yeah, there's a hole in there somewhere. 
Baby, there's a hole in there somewhere. 
Now there's a hole in there somewhere. 

(When they do it) you're never there. 
(When they show it) you stop and stare. 
(Abacab) he's in anywhere. 
(Abacab)

Genesis - Afterglow

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.

Genesis - Alien Afternoon

Woke up in the morning staggered out of bed 
Thought about getting back again, but went downstairs instead 
Read the daily paper have to know the truth 
Slammed the door as I ran outside, looked at my watch and cried 
Gotta get to work on time 
Gotta get to work on time 

Then the sky turned a deeper blue 
Not a cloud as the sun shone through 
But all around rain kept falling to the ground 
The wind was blowing but the trees didn't make a sound 
Just another alien afternoon 
Just another alien afternoon 

Time that I was leaving while there's still a chance 
Before I start believing in what I see or hear 
Nothing here to keep me, nothing anywhere 
Gotta get out pack my bags before I go insane 
Gotta get away in time 
Gotta get away in time 

Then the sky turned from blue to green 
Took on colours I have never seen 
Then a sound started ringing in my ears 
I heard voices but in truth there's nobody there 
Just another alien afternoon 
Just another alien afternoon 

To be there back where I belong 
To feel again the wind upon my face 
To see again all that I took for granted 
All that I left and everything I knew 

We are home 
We are your home 
We are all your home 

Not another alien afternoon 

Never more to go wandering 
Never leaving my world behind 

There was never a reason 
To leave my heart and my home behind 
Where I was born is where I should be now 
I would never be lonely 
I would never be sad again 

I wanted to go anywhere 
I wanted to see how strange it all could be 
Nothing would ever take me away again 
Never more to go wandering 
Never leaving my world behind 
No, no, no, no 
Nothing will ever take me away again, away again 
No, no, no, no

Genesis - All in a mouse's night

Loving Couple: 
I can't see you but I know you're there. 
Got to get beside you cos 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. 

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.

Genesis - Alone Tonight

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...

Genesis - Am I Very Wromg

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...

Genesis - Another Record

It's funny you know, 
'Cos there's an old rock 'n' roller 
He's got nowhere to go. 
Did you ever think of taking him in? 
Somebody help him, somebody please. 

Put another record on 
'Cos he likes that song. 

It's funny you know, 
Ooh he never done nothing, done nobody wrong, 
Did he think about changing his name, 
But I'm gonna tell him it's the same old game. 

Put another record on 
Round and round and round and around - oh 
Ah - see him smile. 

Well lately I've seen him 
Walking down the street, kinda moving his feet, 
Everyone I know looks the other way 
Somebody help him, somebody say - 

Put another record on 
Round and round and round and around - oh 
Ah - see him smile. 

It's funny you know, 
'Cos there's an old rock 'n' roller 
He's got nowhere to go. 
Did you ever think of taking him in? 
Somebody help him, somebody please. 

Just put another record on 
Put another record on 
Put another record on Cos you know we like it 
Put another record on Cos you know we like it...

Genesis - Anything Now

And whether you want it 
Or whether you hate it 
And try to battle it out 
Someday you may just come to discover 
It was all for the best 
The change has come, maybe a second chance 
Anything now could be there for you 
But whether you want it 
Or whether you hate it 
Nothing will ever be quite the same again 

Everything is in it's place 
I know my limitations 
I don't want to change a thing 
I know that I can live with them 
Why should I care? 

But then sometimes right out of the blue 
News on the radio 
Words on the telephone 
Suddenly change everything 
Nothing's quite what it seems 

And whether you want it 
Or whether you hate it 
And try to battle it out 
Someday you may just come to discover 
It was all for the best 
The change has come, maybe a second chance 
Anything now could be there for you 
But whether you want it 
Or whether you hate it 
Nothing will ever be quite the same again 

I got my lines, I got a part to play 
I don't want to be surprised 
I like to plan from day to day 
Why should I care? 

But then sometimes right out of the blue 
News on the radio 
Words on the telephone 
Suddenly change everything 
Nothing's quite what it seems 

And whether you want it 
Or whether you hate it 
And try to battle it out 
Someday you may just come to discover 
It was all for the best 
The change has come, maybe a second chance 
Anything now could be there for you 
But whether you want it 
Or whether you hate it 
Nothing will ever be quite the same again 

And whether you want it 
Or whether you hate it 
And try to battle it out 
Someday you may just come to discover 
It was all for the best 
The change has come, maybe a second chance 
Anything now could be there for you 
But whether you want it 
Or whether you hate it 
Nothing will ever be quite the same again 

Whether you want it 
Or whether you hate it 
Nothing will ever be quite the same again 

Anything now...

Genesis - Anything She Does

You know, 
You decorate the garage walls, 
Hang in people's halls, 
Live in secret drawers, 
If you could look around you, 
Wonder what you'd see. 

Fiction. 
That's all you really are I know, 
Editorial dreams. 
They can't make you real, 
Tell me where you came from, 
And where you're going to. 

I won't ever, no I'll never get to know her, 
Or be the cause of anything she does. 
I won't ever, no I'll never get to hold her. 
Do you think this aching could be love? 

Oh you know, 
You've figured in some fantasies. 
You would not believe, 
What you've had to do, 
Life goes on around you and all because of you. 

No I won't ever, no I'll never get to know her, 
Or be the cause of anything she does. 
I won't ever, no I'll never get to hold her. 
Do you think this aching could be love? 

I won't ever, no I'll never get to know her, 
Or be the cause of anything she does. 
I won't ever, no I'll never get to hold her. 
Do you think this aching could be love? 

You know, 
That in twenty years or more, 
You'll still look the same 
As you do today. 
You'll still be a young girl, 
When I'm old and grey. 

No - I won't ever, no I'll never get to know her, 
Or be the cause of anything she does. 
I won't ever, no I'll never get to hold her. 
Do you think this aching could be love? 

I won't ever, no I'll never get to know her, 
Or be the cause of anything she does. 
I won't ever, no I'll never get to hold her. 
Do you think this aching could be love? (no you'll never...)

Genesis - Anyway

He panics, feels around for a stone and hurls it at the brightest point. The sound of breaking glass echoes around the cave. As his vision is restored he catches sight of two golden gloves about one foot in diameter hovering away down the tunnel. When they disappear a resounding crack sears across the roof, and it collapses all around him. Our hero is trapped once again. 

"This is it" he thinks, failing to move any of the fallen rocks. 

All the pumping's nearly over for my sweet heart, 
This is the one for me, 
Time to meet the chef, 
O boy! running man is out of death. 
Feel cold and old, it's getting hard to catch my breath. 
'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 earth - 'how wonderful to be so profound, 
when everything you are is dying underground.' 

There's not much spectacle for an underground creole as he walks through the gates of Sheol. "I would have preferred to have been jettisoned into a thousand pieces in space, or filled with helium and floated above a mausoleum. This is no way to pay my last subterranean homesick dues. Anyway I'm out of the hands of any pervert embalmer doing his interpretation of what I should look like, stuffing his cotton wool in my cheeks." 

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 its 
"Good morning Rael 
So sorry you had to wait. 
It won't be long, yeh! 
She's very rarely late."

Genesis - Back In N.Y.C.

No-one seems to take up the chase, and with the familiar faces fresh in his mind he moves into a reconstruction of his old life, above ground - Too much time was one thing he didn't need, so he used to cut through it with a little speed. He was better off dead, than slow in the head. His momma and poppa had taken a ride on his back, so he left very quickly to join The Pack. 

I see faces and traces of home back in New York City - 
So you think I'm a tough kid? Is that what you heard? 
Well I like to see some action and it gets into my blood. 
The call me the trail blazer - Rael - electric razor 
I'm the pitcher in the chain gang, we don't believe in pain 
'cos we're only as strong, yes we're only as strong, 
as the weakest link in the chain. 

Only after a spell in Pontiac reformatory was he given any respect in the gang. 

Let me out of Pontiac when I was just seventeen, 
I had to get it out of me, if you know what I mean, what I mean. 

You say I must be crazy, 'cos I don't care who I hit, who I hit. 
But I know it's me that's hitting out and I'm, I'm not full of shit. 
I don't care who I hurt, I don't care who I do wrong. 
This is your mess I'm stuck in, I really don't belong. 
When I take out my bottle, filled up high with gasoline, 
You can tell by the night fires where Rael has been, has been. 

Now, walking back home after a raid, he was cuddling a sleeping porcupine. 
That night he pictured the removal of his hairy heart and to the accompaniment of very romantic music he watched it being shaved smooth by an anonymous stainless steel razor. 

As I cuddled the porcupine 
He said I had none to blame, but me. 
Held my heart, deep in hair, 
Time to shave, shave it off, it off. 
No time for romantic escape, 
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape. No! 
Off we go... 

Your sitting in your comfort you don't believe I'm real, 
You cannot buy protection from the way that I feel. 
Your progressive hypocrites hand out their trash, 
But it was mine in the first place, so I'll burn it to ash. 
And I've tasted all the strongest meats, 
And laid them down in coloured sheets (laid them down in coloured 
sheets). 
Who needs illusion of love and affection 
When you're out walking the streets with your mainline connection? 
connection. 

As I cuddled the porcupine 
He said I had none to blame, but me. 
Held my heart, deep in hair. 
Time to shave, shave it off, it off. 
No time for romantic escape, 
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape. No!

Genesis - Ballad Of Big

Big Jim Cooley commanded respect, whatever he wanted he could get. 
The badge on his waistcoat shone in the sun. 
It ain't no lie that Big Jim was feared by everyone. 

In the saloon one evening Big took a bet 
with a rancher whose name I forget. 
He wanted a herd taken over the plain, 
and he called Jim `yellow', he'll never do that again. 

He got mad! 
He threw his badge on the floor and walked out, 
he's gonna give it a try, he left no doubt. 

"Must be mad, he must be mad"! 
The people wished him well, and good luck. 
"Well I don't need it"! He laughed, 
got on his horse and rode away. 

Out on the trail, Jim 'n' his crew of five 
were trying their best to keep the cattle alive. 
The weather was hard, but so were the men, 
Though I don't think even Big will try this trip again. 

His horses were edgy, sensing trouble ahead, 
but the trouble didn't start until the men were in bed 
A-whooping and a-hollering, flashing their knives, 
Big and his men were jumped by an all-star Indian tribe. 

He was scared, Big Jim was scared 
Alive, they called him lucky, but not today. 
Cos he died like all good cowboys with his boots on next to his men. 

Big Jim, he still won't lie down, 
for him the bet is still on. 
Some say he rides there, cursing still. 
Some say they've seen him.

Genesis - Banjo Man

Gimme a song I know, something I can relate to 
People never criticise the way I play 
Show me the way to go, I need to make a breakthrough 
I don't think that I can wait another day 

It's putting years on me, I'm a young man going grey 
I don't believe that I can wait another day 

This simple melody is all I have 
I make my living that way 
I make good friends that way 
Ooh, I really can make no sense of it, as hard as I try 
Is it something I do wrong please won't you tell me why 
People all seem to like it and no one knows about it more than I 

I met a man today who walked in my direction 
Stopped took off his hat and lit a cigarette 
He listened carefully to what I had been playing 
He threw a coin into my hat and walked away 

Always play just what they want me to 
Everybody wants the same song 
If only I could do it in my own way 
I feel such emotion, emotion, ooh, emotion, emotion, ooh 

Say gimme a song I know, something I can relate to 
And no one wants to criticise the way I play 
I should just say no and play them what I want to 
Cos I don't think that I can wait another day 

It's putting years on me, I'm a young man going grey 
I don't believe that I can wait another day 

This simple melody is all I have 
I make my living that way 
I make good friends that way 
They feel my emotion, emotion, ooh, ooh 
Emotion, emotion, ooh

Genesis - Behind the lines

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 me no warning 
You gave 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 is written in the book 

Oh so many times since I've read those words 
Just waiting to see you, can you see me?

Genesis - Blood on the rooftops

Dark and grey, an English film, the Wednesday Play 
We always watch the Queen on Christmas Day 
Won't you stay? 

Though your eyes see shipwrecked sailors you're still dry 
The outlook's fine though Wales might have some rain 
Saved again. 

Let's skip the news boy (I'll make some tea) 
The Arabs and the Jews boy (too much for me) 
They get me confused boy (puts me off to sleep) 
And the thing I hate - Oh Lord! 
Is staying up late, to watch some debate, on some nation's fate. 

Hypnotised by Batman, Tarzan, still surprised! 
You've won the West in time to be our guest 
Name your prize! 

Drop of wine, a glass of beer dear what's the time? 
The grime on the Tyne is mine all mine all mine 
Five past nine. 

Blood on the rooftops - Venice in the Spring 
Streets of San Francisco - a word from Peking 
The trouble was started - by a young Errol Flynn 
Better in my day - Oh Lord! 
For when we got bored, we'd have a world war, happy but poor 

So let's skip the news boy (I'll go make that tea) 
Blood on the rooftops (too much for me) 
When old Mother Goose stops - they're out for 23 
Then the rain at Lords stopped play 
Seems Helen of Troy has found a new face again.

Genesis - Broadway Melody Of 1974

The moment of impact bursts through the silence and in a roar of sound, the final second is prolonged in a world of echoes as if the concrete and clay of Broadway itself was reliving its memories. The last great march past. Newsman stands limp as a whimper as audience and event are locked as one. Bing Crosby coos "You don't have to feel pain to sing the blues, you don't have to holla - you don't feel a thing in your dollar collar." Martin Luther King cries "Everybody Sing!" and rings the grand old liberty bell. Leary, weary of his prison cell, walks on heaven, talks on hell. J.F.K. gives the O.K. to shoot us, sipping Orange Julius and Lemon Brutus. Bare breasted cowboy double decks the triple champion. Who needs Medicare and the 35c flat rate fare, when Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are dancing through the air? From Broadway Melody stereotypes the band returns to 'Stars and Stripes' bringing a tear to the moonshiner, who's been pouring out his spirit from the illegal still. The pawn broker clears the noisy till and clutches his lucky dollar bill. 

Echoes of the Broadway Everglades, 
With her mythical madonnas still walking in their shades: 
Lenny Bruce, declares a truce and plays his other hand. 
Marshall Mcluhan, casual viewin', head buried in the sand. 
Sirens on the rooftops wailing, but there's no ship sailing. 
Groucho, with his movies trailing, stands alone with his punchline 
failing. 
Klu Klux Klan serve hot soul food and the band plays 'In the Mood' 
The cheerleader waves her cyanide wand, there's a smell of 
peach blossom and bitter almonde. 
Caryl Chessman sniffs the air and leads the parade, he knows 
in a scent, you can bottle all you made. 
There's Howard Hughes in blue suede shoes, smiling at the 
majorettes smoking Winston Cigarettes. 
And as the song and dance begins, the children play at home 
with needles; needles and pins. 

Then the blackout.

Genesis - Burning Rope

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 not 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 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...

Genesis - Calling all stations

Calling all stations 
Can anybody tell me, tell me exactly where I am 
I've lost all sense of direction 
Watching the darkness closing around me 
Feeling the cold all through my body 
That's why I'm calling all stations 
In the hope that someone hears me 
A single lonely voice 

I feel the sensation disappearing 
There's a tingling in my arms 
And there's a numbness in my hands 

All the broken promises 
All my good intentions don't add up to very much 
And I realise whatever happened, whatever happened 
I remember all the moments that I've wasted in my life 
All the things I was always gonna do 
Why is it now when it's too late 
That I've finally realised it's important to me 
To think that everything that's dear to me 
And is always in my heart 
Could so easily be taken 
And it's tearing me apart 
Going over and over in my mind 
I relive it one second at a time 

Calling all stations 
Can anybody tell me, tell me exactly where I am 
How different things look when your all on your own 
Watching the darkness closing all around me 
All around me 
And I'm lost with feeling 
Of your arms to remind me 
Of everything that's dear to me 
And is always in my heart 
Could so easily be taken 
And it's tearing me apart 
Going over and over in my mind 
I relive it one second at a time 
Don't you know there's never been a moment 
When I haven't had the thought 
That everything that's dear to me 
And is always in my heart 
Could so easily be taken 
And it's tearing me apart 
Going over and over in my mind 
I relive it one second at a time 
As I sit here in the darkness 
Feeling so alone 
And everything that's dear to me 
And is always in my heart...

Genesis - Can-utility and the coastliners

The scattered pages of a book by the sea 
Held by the sand, washed by the waves 
A shadow forms cast by a cloud, 
Skimming by as eyes of the past, but the rising tide 
Absorbs them effortlessly claiming. 

They told of one who tired of all singing, 
"Praise him, praise him." 
"We heed not flatterers," he cried, 
"By our command, waters retreat, 
Show my power, halt at my feet," 
But the cause was lost, 
Now cold winds blow. 

For from the north overcast ranks advance 
Fear of the storm accusing with rage and scorn. 
The waves surround the sinking throne 
Singing "Crown him, crown him," 
"Those who love our majesty show themselves!" 
All bent their knees. 

But he forced a smile even though 
His hopes lay dashed where offerings fell (where they fell). 
"Nothing can my peace destroy as long as none smile." 
More opened ears and opened eyes, 
And soon they dared to laugh. 
See a little man with his face turning red 
Though his story's often told you can tell he's dead.

Genesis - Carpet Crawlers

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 memory 
There's no room to avoid 

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 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 chamber's said to be 
Like the forest fight for sunlight, that takes root in every tree 
They are pulled up by the magnet, believing 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 the 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 mannikin 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 ... "

Genesis - Chamber Of 32 Doors

At the top of the stairs he finds a chamber. It is almost a hemisphere with a great many doors all the way round its circumference. There is a large crowd, huddled in various groups. From the shouting, Rael learns that there are 32 doors, but only one that leads out. Their voices get louder and louder until Rael screams "Shut up!" There is a momentary silence and then Rael finds himself the focus as they direct their advice and commands to their new found recruit. Bred on trash, fed on ash the jigsaw master has got to move faster. Rael sees a quiet corner and rushes to it. 

At the top of the stairs, there's hundreds of people, 
running around to all the doors. 
They try to find, find themselves an audience; 
their deductions need applause. 

The rich man stands in front of me, 
The poor man behind my back. 
They believe they can control the game, 
but the juggler holds another pack. 

I need someone to believe in, someone to trust. 
I need someone to believe in, someone to trust. 

I'd rather trust a countryman than a townman, 
You can judge by his eyes, take a look if you can, 
He'll smile through his guard, 
Survival trains hard. 
I'd rather trust a man who works with his hands, 
He looks at you once, you know he understands, 
Don't need any shield, 
When you're out in the field. 

But down here, 
I'm so alone with my fear, 
With everything that I hear. 
And every single door, that I've walked through 
Brings me back here again, 
I've got to find my own way. 

The priest and the magician, 
Singing all the chants that they have ever heard; 
and they're all calling out my name, 
Even academics, searching printed word. 

My father to the left of me, 
My mother to the right, 
Like everyone else they're pointing 
But nowhere feels quite right. 

And I need someone to believe in, someone to trust. 
I need someone to believe in, someone to trust. 

I'd rather trust a man who doesn't shout what he's found, 
There's no need to sell if you're homeward bound. 
If I choose a side, 
He won't take me for a ride. 

Back inside 
This chamber of so many doors; 
I've nowhere, nowhere to hide. 
I'd give you all of my dreams, if you'd help me, 
Find a door 
That doesn't lead me back again 
- take me away.

Genesis - Cinema show

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? 

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 all 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. 
But there is in fact more earth than sea. 

Take a little trip back with father Tiresias, 
Listen to the old one speak of all he has lived through.

Genesis - Congo

You say that I put chains on you 
But I don't think that's really true 
But if you want to be free from me 
You gotta lose me in another world 

Send me to the Congo I'm free to leave 
There's always somewhere anybody can lead 
Send me to the Congo you have to believe 
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please 

Like a soldier ant 
I will wait for the signal to act 
To take a walk right through the door 
If you don't want me here any more 

Send me to the Congo I'm free to leave 
There's always somewhere anybody can lead 
Send me to the Congo you have to believe 
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please 

Into my heart you came 
And gave a whole new meaning to my life 
Into my world you brought a light 
I thought it never would go out 

Send me to the Congo I'm free to leave 
There's always somewhere anybody can lead 
Send me to the Congo you have to believe 
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please 

You can send me to the Congo I'm free to leave 
There's always somewhere anybody can lead 
Yes you can send me to the Congo, you have to believe 
You can do it if you wanna just do what you please 

I would never be the one to say you had no reason 
To want me somewhere else far far away 
But someday you may understand, someday you will see 
That someone who would die for you is all I've ever been 

Congo the Congo, if that's how it's got to be 
Congo the Congo, if that's what you want from me 

I would never be the one to say you had no reason 
To want me somewhere else far far away 
Someday you may understand someday you will see...

Genesis - Conqueror

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...

Genesis - Counting Out Time



The palpitating cherry-red organ was returned to its rightful place and began to beat faster as it led our hero, counting out time, through his first romantic encounter. 

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 Rael!

Genesis - Cuckoo Cocoon

Rael regains consciousness in some musky half-light. He is warmly wrapped in some sort of cocoon. The only sound he can hear is dripping water which appears to be the source of a pale flickering light. He guesses he must be in some sort of cave - or kooky tomb, or catacomb, or eggshell waiting to drop from the bone of the womb. 

Wrapped up in some powdered wool - I guess I'm losing touch. 
Don't tell me this is 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 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? 

Resigning himself to the unknown he drifts off into sleep.

Genesis - Cul De Sac

Wake up now, this is the time you've waited for. 

Far below, where shadows fester as they grow, 
An army thousands strong, obsessed by right and wrong, 
They sense their time is coming near. 
So they turn towards the light from their region of the night, 
Marching on and on, 
They near the air, it won't be long. 

You know you're on the way out, 
It's just a matter of time. 
You thought you'd rule the world forever, 
Long live the king, and don't spare the loser. 

After all, you're not what you thought you were at all. 
You're just a natural fact, another cul-de-sac 
On nature's hard unfeeling trail. 
Now all those dreams of old will be stories left untold, 
Cut off in your prime, extinct until the end of time. 

You know you're on the way out, 
It's just a matter of time. 
You thought you'd rule the world forever, 
Long live the king, but don't spare the loser now... 

Now the host emerges, and a shadow starts to fall. 
Not one knows what hit them, none can see at all. 
Even as the end approaches still they're not aware, 
How can you fight a foe so deadly 
When you don't even know it's there? 
And now that the job is almost done 
Maybe some escape, no, not even one. 

You know they're on the way out, 
It's just a matter of time. 
You thought you'd rule the world forever, 
Long live the king, and don't spare the loser.

Genesis - Dance On A Volcano

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. 

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 lava's 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.

Genesis - Dancing with the moonlit knight

"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 cards she plays Fortune. 
The deck is uneven right from the start; 
and 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.

Genesis - Day the Light Went Out

When they went to bed that night no-one would have believed 
That in the morning light would not be there 
The dark hung heavy on the air like the grip of a jealous man 
No place was there known to have been spared 
Then panic took control of minds as fear hit everyone 
The day the light went out of the daytime sky 

Artificial light could hardly penetrate the gloom 
Nothing out of reach could be observed 
Looting, pillage, murder, rape became the rule of that day 
Who hit him no one knew or whom he hit 
Cars were caught in pileups and the planes could never land 
The day the light went out of the daytime sky 

"Now I can rest here after my journey 
Now I can feed here before I continue" 

Some there were who's heads were clear who sought, tried to find 
The nature of this deadly foe, the dark 
It seemed the sun was still somewhere though hidden from their sight 
By something, though amorphous, yet alive 
And so they looked for ways to rid themselves of the parasite 
The day the light went out of the daytime sky 

"Now I can rest here after my journey 
Now I can feed here before I continue" 

They tried in many fruitless ways to see the noonday sun 
By blasting with their missiles through the dark 
But soon a kind of sleepy state came over everyone 
Till nothing seemed to stir or even breathe 
And when the darkness chose to disappear not many had survived 
Then came a shadow - another had arrived 
And again the light went out the daytime sky

Genesis - Deep In The Motherlode

Get out of the way fat man. You got something to do 
Go fill up your hands till they're shining up at you. 
You gotta get out while there's gold in the air 
It's falling like water, coming down from the hills. 

Go West young man 
Earn a dollar a day just like your family said. 
You're rolling your days right on into the night 
The head of the line's going way out of sight. 
Go West young man like your family said 

All along the wagons 
All along the dusty trail. 
Seventeen years not over a day 
Like children in the wild. 
Your mother's milk still wet on your face 
And no one to pray for your safe journey home. 

Out beyond the desert 
Across the mountains by the fall. 
Servants who leave their masters house 
Are walking all the way. 
The golden fields that beckoned you 
Are darkened by the years. 

Go West Young Man 
If you knew then what you know today 
You'd be back where you started a happier man 
And leave all the glory to those who have remained. 

So Go West Young Man 
Go West Young Man, like your family said.

Genesis - Dodo

Too big to fly, dodo ugly so dodo must die, 
Doggo with fear on its side, can't change, can't change the tide. 
Dog baiter, agitator, asking questions, says he wants to know why. 
Ain't no reason that money can't buy. 
Mink he pretty so mink he must die, must die, must die. 

Sun he giving life in his light, 
Part of the system, 
Friend to man, friend to the trees, 
No friend to the snowman. 
Where does he go, what does he do? 
Does he meet with the mole, the stream, the cloud 
And end up at the bottom of the sea. 

Fish he got a hook in his throat, 
Fish he got problems 
Where does he go, what does he do? 
Does he hope he's too small, to poor a haul, 
Who'll end up being thrown back in the sea. 
I'm back in the sea. 

Caretaker, horror movie, 
Only one eye, only needs one boot, 
Sweet lady, she knows she looks good 
Vacuum coming for the bright and the brute. 

Big noise, black smoke 
So pig-headed couldn't see the joke. 
But it ain't funny 
Ask the fly on the wall 
It's only living 
It don't matter at all, at all, at all. 

Pimp, he make you drool and grunt, 
He got an answer. 
One he got a dream of love, 
Deep as the ocean. 

Where does he go? 
What does he do? 
Will the siren team with Davy Jones, 
And trap him at the bottom of the sea? 

I'm back in the sea. 
I'm back in the sea. 
I'm back in the sea.

Genesis - Domino (Part 1: In The Glow Of The Night

The grey of evening fills the room, 
There's no need to look outside, 
To see or feel the rain. 
Then I reach across to touch her, 
But I know that she's not there. 
Rain keeps running down the window pane. 
Time is running out for me. 

Can't you see what you are doing to me? 
Can't you see what you have done? 
As I try to pass another long and sleepless night, 
A hundred crazy voices call my name, 
As I try to pass them by, 
I almost can believe that she is here, 
Here in the glow of the night. 

Do you know what you have done? 
Do you know what you've begun? 
Do you see we shall never be together again? 
All of my life. 

Lonely people, empty rooms, 
Pointless violence, silent tombs. 
Could it be that we shall be together again? 

Sheets of double glazing help to keep outside the night, 
Only foreign city sirens can cut through, 
Nylon sheets and blankets help to minimize the cold. 
But they can't keep out the chilling sounds. 
Will the nightmare soon give way to dreaming 
That she is here with me? 
Here in the glow of the night. 

Do you know what you have done? 
Do you know what you've begun? 
Do you see we shall never be together again? 
All of my life. 

Lonely people, empty rooms, 
Pointless violence, silent tombs. 
Could it be that we shall be together again? 
Could it be that we shall be together again? 

In silence and darkness 
We held each other near that night 
We prayed it would last forever. 

The Last Domino 

Blood on the windows 
Millions of ordinary people are there 
They gaze at the scenery 
They act as if it is perfectly clear 
Take a look at the mountains 
Take a look at the beautiful river of blood. 

The liquid surrounds me 
I fight to rise from this river of hell 
I stare round about me 
Children are swimming and playing with boats 
Their features are changing 
Their bodies dissolve and I am alone. 

Now see what you've gone and done. 
Now see what you've gone and done. 

Well now you never did see such a terrible thing 
As was seen last night on T.V. 
Maybe if we're lucky, they will show it again 
Such a terrible thing to see - oh 
But there's nothing you can do when you're next in line 
You've got to go domino. 

Now I'm one with the living and I'm feeling just fine 
I know just what I gotta do 
Play the game of happiness and never let on 
That it only lives on in a song - oh 
Well there's nothing you can do when you're next in line 
You've got to go domino. 

Do you know what you have done? 
Do you know what you've begun? 

In silence and darkness 
Hold each other near tonight 
For will it last forever? 
Will it last forever - forever... 

There's nothing you can do when you're the next in line 
You've got to go domino. 

Do you know, do you know, do you know what you have done 
Do you see what you've begun? 
Cos there's nothing, nothing, nothing 
There's nothing you can do, there's nothing you can do 
Do you see, do you see what you have done?

Keep up the pressure all the way! 

I don't want to beat about the bush 
but none of us are getting any younger. 
There's people out there who could take your place. 
A more commercial view! A fresher face! 

I need a shower, take a nap 
I'll meet you in the bar, we must have a rap. 
There's a lot on the line, a lot to say. 
There's something I must tell you today. 

You and I both know the score, 
you can't go on like this forever. 
So it's with regret that I tell you now 
that from this moment on, 
you're on your own! 

I don't talk round corners, it's right between the eyes 
If you're slow they'll run past you, 
Stand tall, see them falling over. 
I walk a straight line, it's right between the eyes. 
Well show me the door, show me someone who'll do it better. 

The drinks are on me, be my guest. 
Smoke a cigar? Take the best. 
Don't hedge your bets, we can make a deal, 
you got it in your pocket, how do you feel? 

So glad that's over, now you know, 
but I'm only acting under orders. 
And looking down on you from way up here. 
You've got to sink or swim, get off the floor! 

I don't talk round corners, it's right between the eyes 
If you're slow they'll run past you, 
Stand tall, see them falling over, 
I walk a straight line, right between the eyes. 
Well show me the door, show me someone who'll do it better.

Genesis - Dreaming While You Sleep

In and out of darkness, in and out of sleep 
trying to keep my hands upon the wheel. 
Never saw the corner in the driving rain. 
I never saw her step into the street. 

Dreaming while you sleep 
dreaming while you sleep 
memories to keep 
dreaming while you sleep 

I can never understand what went thru my mind 
I didn't stop to see what I had done. 
Had to keep on driving deep into the night 
the miles between would somehow put it right 

Dreaming while you sleep 
dreaming while you sleep 
memories to keep 
dreaming while you sleep 

All my life you lie silently there 
All my life in a world so unfair 
All my life and only I'll know why 
and it will live inside of me, 
I will never be free all my life, 
trapped in her memory all my life 
Till the day that you open your eyes, 
please open your eyes 

Dreaming while you sleep 
dreaming while you sleep 

Heard it on the radio, saw it on TV, 
but could I take my secret to the grave. 
If I had another chance, would I do the same. 
Would I still deny that it was me. 

Dreaming while you sleep 
dreaming while you sleep 
Dreaming while you sleep, 
Are you dreaming while you sleep? 

All my life I'll be haunted by 
all my life just one moment in time 
all my life until the day I die 
and it will live inside of me 
Oh I will never be free all my life 
trapped in her memory all my life 
Till the day that you open your eyes 

All of my life - you lie silently there 
All my life - in a world so unfair 
All my life - and only I know why 
And it will live inside of me 
I will never be free all my life 
Trapped in her memory - all my life 
Till the day that you open your eyes. 

All of my life. 
Just one moment of time, all my life.

Genesis - Driving The Last Spike

Leaving my family behind me 
not knowing what lay ahead 
waving goodbye, as I left them in tears 
remembering all we'd said 

I looked to the sky, I offered my prayers 
I asked Him for guidance and strength 
but the simple beliefs of a simple man 
lay in His hands, and on my head 

I gave everything that they wanted 
but still they wanted more 
we sweat and we toiled 
good men lost their lives 
I don't think they knew what for 

I sold them my heart 
I sold them my soul 
I gave everything I had 
ah but they couldn't break my spirit 
my dignity fought back, 
fightback 
can you hear me 
can you see 
Don't you hear me 
don't you see 

We worked in gangs for all we were worth 
the young boys pulling the wagons 
we were digging the tunnel, shifting the earth 
it was then that it happened. 

No-one knew how the cracks appeared 
but as it fell they all disappeared 
stone fell like rain 

Can you hear me, 
Can you see 
Don't you hear me 
Can you breathe 

The smoke cleared, the dust it settled 
No one knew how many had died 
all around there were broken men 
they'd said it was safe, they'd lied 
you could hear the cries, you could smell the fear 
but good fortune that day was mine 
and it occurred to me the heart of a good man 
it seems is hard to find. 

Can you hear me, 
can you see 
Don't you hear me 
don't you see 

We worked, how we worked like 
the devil for our pay 
through the wind, through the snow, 
and through the rain 

Blasting and cutting through Gods country like a knife 
sweat stinging my eyes, there has to be a better life 

Ah but I can hear my childrens' cry 
I can see the tears in their eyes 
memories of those I've left behind 
still ringing in my ears 
Will I ever go back again 
Will I ever see her face again 
I'll never forget that night 
As they waved goodbye to their fathers 

We came from the North, 
and we came from the South 
with picks and with spades 
and a new kind of order 
showing no fear of what lies up ahead 
They'll never see the likes of us again 

Driving the last spike, 
lifting and laying the track 
with blistering hands, 
the sun burning your back 

Oh but I can hear my childrens' cry 
I can see the tears in their eyes 
memories of those I've left behind 
still ringing in my ears 
Well I'll always remember that night, 
As they waved goodbye to their fathers 

We followed the rail, we slept under the stars 
digging in darkness, and living with danger 
showing no fear of what lies up ahead 
they'll never see the likes of us again 

can you hear me 
can you see 
Don't you hear me 
don't you see

Genesis - Duchess

Times were good, 
She never thought about the future, she just did what she would 
Oh but she really cared 
About her music, it all seemed so important then, 

And she dreamed that every time that she performed 
Everyone would cry for more, 
That all she had to do was step into the light, 
And everyone would start to roar. 

And on the road, 
Where all but a few fall by the wayside on the grassier verge, 
She battled through 
Against the others in her world, and the sleep, and the odds. 

But now everytime that she performed 
Oh everybody cried for more, 
Soon all she had to do was step into the light, 
For everyone to start to roar. 
And all the people cried, you're the one we've waited for. 

Oh but time went by 
It wasn't so easy now, all uphill, and not feeling so strong. 
Yes times were hard, 
Too much thinking 'bout the future and what people might want. 

An then there was the time that she performed 
When nobody called for more 
And soon everytime she stepped into the light, 
They really let her know the score. 
But she dreamed of the times when she sang all her songs 
And everybody cried for more, 
When all she had to do was step into the light 
For everyone to start to roar. 
And all the people cried, you're the one we've waited for.

Genesis - Duke's Travels

I am the one who guided you this far, 
All you know and all you feel. 
Nobody must know my name 
For nobody would understand, 
And you kill what you fear, 
And you fear what you don't understand. 

I call you for I must leave, 
You're on your own until the end. 
There was a choice but now it's gone, 
I said you wouldn't understand, 
Take what's yours and be damned.

Genesis - Dusk

See my hand is moving 
touching all that's real 
And once it stroked love's body 
now it claws the past. 

The scent of a flower, 
The colours of the morning, 
Friends to believe in, 
Tears soon forgotten, 
See how the rain drives away, another day. 

If a leaf as fallen 
does the tree lie broken? 
And if we draw some water 
does the well run dry? 

The sigh of a mother, 
The screaming of lovers, 
Like two angry tigers, 
They tear at each other, 
See how for him lifetime's fears disappear. 

Once Jesus suffered, 
Heaven could not see him. 
And now my ship is sinking, 
The captain stands alone. 

A pawn on a chessboard, 
A false move by God will now destroy me, 
But wait, on the horizon, 
A new dawn seems to be rising, 
Never to recall this passerby, born to die.

Genesis - Eleventh earl of mar

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, 
The conquering heroes, with blisters on their feet. 
Eleventh Earl of Mar 
Somehow got them all this far. 
Daddy! You Promised, You Promised. 

See the Stewart 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!

Genesis - Entangled

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!"

Genesis - Fading Lights

Another time it might have been so different 
oh if only we could do it all again 
but now it's just another fading memory 
out of focus, though the outline still remains 

Far away, away, fading distant lights 
leaving us all behind, lost in a changing world 
and you know that these are the days of our lives 
remember 

Like the story that we wish was never ending 
We know sometime we must reach the final page 
still we carry on just pretending 
that there'll always be one more day to go 

Far away, away, fading distant lights 
leaving us all behind, lost in a changing world 
and you know that these are the days of our lives 
so remember... 

Another chance hello, another goodbye 
and so many things we'll never see again 
days of life that seemed so unimportant 
they seem to matter but to count much later on 

Far away, away, fading distant lights 
leaving us all behind, lost in a changing world 
and you know that these are the days of our lives 
remember

Genesis - Feeding the fire

You are terrified by the smallest sound 
Because you live your life in such a sheltered world 
As do those who surround you 
Well I have seen you stung by poisonous flies 
And you suffer much too much from their bites 
There you sit in your comfort watching other people get caught by the 
storm 

Many a thing that used to be a secret 
Has become so talked about 
Not worth a second thought 
There's different kinds of secrets now 
Times change, it's not enough to say 
It seemed a good idea a hundred years ago 
You think it's not your problem 
It really doesn't matter at all 

Every stone that's thrown must fall to the ground 
But you don't give a thought to where they might come down 
You are feeding the fire over which you'll be roasted 

Anywhere that they don't speak the same 
In any place that they don't think the same 
You think it's not your problem 
No no 

You think it's not your problem 
It really doesn't matter at all 
Oh... 

Maybe it's not your fate to be a leader of men 
But you just leave it all to someone else and complain 
You could be so much stronger, but it really doesn't matter any longer 
Cos you're feeding the fire over which you'll be roasted 
Cos you're feeding the fire over which you'll be roasted

Genesis - Fireside Song

As daybreak breaks the mist upon the earth 
It came to pass that beauty settled there forever more 
And as the steam clings close to things to come 
It came to pass that solid rock did part for humble life 

Once upon a time there was confusion 
Disappointment, fear and disillusion 
Now there's hope reborn with every morning 
See the future clearly at its dawning 
Forever drifting slowly towards a hazy emptiness 
Whilst water slips into the sea 
The father's sad to see it's free 

As shadows creep towards their master night 
It came to pass that trees defied the wind who shook their leaves 
And as the peace descended all around 
It came to pass that nature's creatures came to face the world 

Once upon a time there was confusion 
Disappointment, fear and disillusion 
Now there's hope reborn with every morning 
See the future clearly at its dawning 
Forever drifting slowly towards a hazy emptiness 
Whilst water slips into the sea 
The father's sad to see it's free 

Once upon a time there was confusion 
Disappointment, fear and disillusion 
Now there's hope reborn with every morning 
See the future clearly at its dawning 

Once upon a time there was confusion 
Disappointment, fear and disillusion

Genesis - Firth of fifth

The path is clear 
Though no eyes can see 
The course laid down long before. 
And so with gods and men 
The sheep remain inside their pen, 
Though many times they've seen the way to leave. 

He rides majestic 
Past homes of men 
Who care not or gaze with joy, 
To see reflected there 
The trees, the sky, the lily fair, 
The scene of death is lying just below. 

The mountain cuts off the town from view, 
Like a cancer growth is removed by skill. 
Let it be revealed. 
A waterfall, his madrigal. 
An inland sea, his symphony. 

Undinal songs 
Urge the sailors on 
Till lured by sirens' cry. 

Now as the river dissolves in sea, 
So Neptune has claimed another soul. 
And so with gods and men 
The sheep remain inside their pen, 
Until the Shepherd leads his flock away. 

The sands of time were eroded by 
The river of constant change.

Genesis - Fly On A Windshield

The sky is overcast and as Rael looks back a dark cloud is descending like a balloon into Times Square. It rests on the ground and shapes itself into a hard edged flat surface, which solidifies and extends itself all the way East and West along 47th Street and reaching up to the dark sky. As the wall takes up its tension it becomes a screen showing what had existed in three dimensions, on the other side just a moment before. The image flickers and then cracks like painted clay and the wall silently moves forward, absorbing everything in its path. The unsuspecting New Yorkers are apparently blind to what is going on. 

There's something solid forming in the air, 
And the wall of death is lowered in Times Square. 
No-one seems to care, 
They carry on as if nothing was there. 

Rael starts to run away towards Columbus Circle. Each time he dares to take a look, the wall has moved another block. At the moment when he thinks he's maintaining his distance from the wall, the wind blows hard and cold slowing down his speed. The wind increases, dries the wet street and picks up the dust off the surface, throwing it into Rael's face. More and more dirt is blown up and it begins to settle on Rael's skin and clothes, making a solid layered coat that brings him gradually to a terrified stillness. A sitting duck. 

The wind is blowing harder now, 
Blowing dust into my eyes. 
The dust settles on my skin, 
Making a crust I cannot move in 
And I'm hovering like a fly, waiting for the windshield on the freeway.

Everyday is such a perfect day to spend

Just one single tear in each passing year

Oh I see so very clearly now 
All my fears are drifting by me so slowly now 
Fading away

The night is long but you are here 
Close at hand, oh 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

Genesis - For Absent Friends

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 (four instead of two). 
Heads bent in prayer 
for friends not there. 

Leaving twopence on the plate, 
they hurry down the path and through the gate 
and wait to board the bus 
that ambles down the street.

Genesis - Fountain Of Salmacis

Hermaphrodite: a flower containing both male and female organs; a person or animal of both sexes. 

The child Hermaphroditus was the son of Hermes and Aphrodite, the result of a secret love affair. For this reason he was entrusted to the nymphs of the isolated Mount Ida, who allowed him to grow up as a wild creature of the woods. After his encounter with the water-nymph Salmacis, he laid a curse upon the water. According to fable, all persons who bathed in the water became hermaphrodites. 

From a dense forest of tall dark pinewood, 
Mount Ida rises like an island. 
Within a hidden cave, nymphs had kept a child; 
Hermaphroditus, son of gods, so afraid of their love. 

As the dawn creeps up the sky 
The hunter caught sight of a doe. 
In desire for conquest, 
He found himself within a glade he'd not beheld before. 

Hermaphroditus: Narrator: 
"Where are you, my father? "Then he could go no farther 
Give wisdom to your son" Now lost, the boy was guided by the sun" 

And as his strength began to fail 
He saw a shimmering lake. 
A shadow in the dark green depths 
Disturbed the strange tranquility. 

Salmacis: Narrator: 
"The waters are disturbed "The waters are disturbed 
Some creature has been stirred" Naiad queen Salmacis has been stirred" 

As he rushed to quench his thirst, 
A fountain spring appeared before him 
And as his heated breath brushed through the cool mist, 
A liquid voice called, "Son of gods, drink from my spring". 

The water tasted strangely sweet. 
Behind him the voice called again. 
He turned and saw her, in a cloak of mist alone 
And as he gazed, her eyes were filled with the darkness of the lake. 

Salmacis: Narrator: 
"We shall be one "She wanted them as one 
We shall be joined as one" Yet he had no desire to be one" 

Hermaphroditus: "Away from me cold-blooded woman 
Your thirst is not mine" 
Salmacis: "Nothing will cause us to part 
Hear me, O Gods" 

Unearthly calm descended from the sky 
And then their flesh and bones were strangely merged 
Forever to be joined as one. 

The creature crawled into the lake. 
A fading voice was heard: 
"And I beg, yes I beg that all who touch this spring 
May share my fate" 

Salmacis: Narrator: 
"We are the one "The two are now made one, 
We are the one" Demi-god and nymph are now made one" 

Both had given everything they had. 
A lover's dream had been fulfilled at last, 
Forever still beneath the lake.

Genesis - Get 'em out by friday

John Pebble of Styx Enterprises 

"Get 'em out by Friday! 
You don't get paid till the last one's well on his way. 
Get 'em out by Friday! 
It's important that we keep to schedule, there must be no delay." 

Mark Hall of Styx Enterprises (otherwise known as "The Winkler") 
"I represent a firm of gentlemen who recently purchased this 
house and all the others in the road, 
In the interest of humanity we've found a better place for you 
to go, go-woh, go-woh" 

Mrs. Barrow (a tenant) 
"Oh no, this I can't believe, 
Oh Mary, they're asking us to leave." 

Mr. Pebble 
"Get 'em out by Friday! 
I've told you before, 's good many gone if we let them stay. 
And if it isn't easy, 
You can squeeze a little grease and our troubles will soon run away." 

Mrs. Barrow 
"After all this time, they ask us to leave, 
And I told them we could pay double the rent. 
I don't know why it seemed so funny, 
Seeing as how they'd take more money. 
The winkler called again, he came here this morning, 
With four hundred pounds and a photograph of the place he has found. 
A block of flats with central heating. 
I think we're going to find it hard." 

Mr. Pebble 
"Now we've got them! 
I've always said that cash cash cash can do anything well. 
Work can be rewarding 
When a flash of intuition is a gift that helps you 
excel-sell-sell-sell." 

Mr. Hall 
"Here we are in Harlow New Town, did you recognise your block 
across the square, over there, 
Sadly since last time we spoke, we've found we've had to raise 
the rent again, 
just a bit." 

Mrs. Barrow 
"Oh no, this I can't believe 
Oh Mary, and we agreed to leave." 

(a passage of time) 
18/9/2012 T.V. Flash on all Dial-A-Program Services 

This is an announcement from Genetic Control: 
"It is my sad duty to inform you of a four foot restriction on 
humanoid height." 

Extract from coversation of Joe Ordinary in Local Puborama 
"I hear the directors of Genetic Control have been buying all the 
properties that have recently been sold, taking risks oh so bold. 
It's said now that people will be shorter in height, 
they can fit twice as many in the same building site. 
(they say it's alright), 
Beginning with the tenants of the town of Harlow, 
in the interest of humanity, they've been told they must go, 
told they must go-go-go-go." 

Sir John De Pebble of United Blacksprings International 
"I think I've fixed a new deal 
A dozen properties - we'll buy at five and sell at thirty four, 
Some are still inhabited, 
It's time to send the winkler to see them, 
he'll have to work some more." 

Memo from Satin Peter of Rock Development Ltd. 
With land in your hand, you'll be happy on earth 
Then invest in the Church for your heaven.

Genesis - Grand Parade Of Lifeless Packaging

When all this revolution is over, he sits down on a highly polished floor while his dizziness fades away. It is an empty modern hallway and the dreamdoll saleslady sits at the reception desk. Without prompting she goes into her rap: "This is the Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging, those you are about to see are all in for servicing, except for a small quantity of our new product, in the second gallery. It is all the stock required to cover the existing arrangements of the enterprise. Different batches are distributed to area operators, and there are plenty of opportunities for the large investor. They stretch from the costly care-conditioned to the most reasonable mal-nutritioned. We find here that everyone's looks become them. Except for the low market mal-nutritioned, each is provided with a guarantee for a successful birth and trouble free infancy. There is however only a small amount of variable choice potential - not too far from the mean differential. You see, the roof has predetermined the limits of action of any group of packages, but individuals may move off the path if their diversions are counter-balanced by others." 

"It's the last great adventure left to mankind"

offering her dreamdolls at less than extortionate prices, 
and as the notes and coins are taken out 
I'm taken in, to the factory floor.

Got people stocked in every shade, 
Must be doing well with trade. 
Stamped, addressed, in odd fatality.

With profit potential marked by a sign,

No bite at all in labour bondage, 
Just wrinkled wrappers or human bandage.

- I just need a fuse. 

As he wanders along the line of packages, Rael notices a familiarity in some of their faces. He finally comes upon some of the members of his old gang and worries about his own safety. Running out through the factory floor, he catches sight of his brother John with a number 9 stamped on his forehead. 

The hall runs like clockwork 
Their hands mark out the time; 
Empty in their fullness 
Like a frozen pantomime. 
Everyone's a sales representative 
Wearing slogans in their shrine. 
Dishing out failsafe superlative, 
Brother John is No. 9. 

it's the Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging 
- All ready to use 
it's the Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging 
- I just need a fuse. 

The decor on the ceiling 
has planned out their future day 
I see no sign of free will, 
so I guess I have to pay, 
pay my way, 
for the Grand Parade... 
it's the Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging 
- All ready to use 
it's the Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging 
- I just need a fuse.

Genesis - Guide Vocal

I am the one who guided you this far, 
All you know and all you feel. 
Nobody must know my name 
For nobody would understand, 
And you kill what you fear. 

I call you for I must leave, 
You're on your own until the end. 
There was a choice but now it's gone, 
I said you wouldn't understand, 
Take what's yours and be damned.

Genesis - Happy The Man

Happy the man - he lives a simple life 
He doesn't have much - it doesn't worry him 
Where you go - where? 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, nowhere 

Like a nun with a gun - I'm wonderful fun 
Laughing all through - just watching you 
Seems a very stupid game... 
But I don't care 

Happy the man - he doesn't buzz around 
Nothing he wants - any more than anything 
Where you go - where? 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, nowhere 

Like a fool in the pool - I'm incredibly cool 
With a grin on my chin - I'm certain to win 
Someone says he's Jesus Christ - but I don't care 

He is a good man...

Genesis - Harlequin

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.

Genesis - Harold The Barrel

News: 
A well-known Bognor restaurant-owner disappeared 
early this morning. 
Last seen in a mouse-brown overcoat, 
suitably camouflaged, 
they saw him catch a train. 

Man-in-the-street: 
"Father of three its disgusting" 
"Such a horrible thing to do" 
Harold the Barrel cut off his toes and he served them all 
for tea 
"Can't go far", "He can't go far". 
"Hasn't got a leg to stand on" 
"He can't go far". 

Man-on-the-spot: 
I'm standing in a doorway on the main square 
tension is mounting 
There's a restless crowd of angry people 

Man-on-the-council: 
"More than we've ever seen. 
- had to tighten up security" 

Over to the scene at the town hall 
The Lord Mayor's ready to speak 

Lord Mayor: 
"Man of suspicion, you can't last long, the British Public 
is on our side" 


British Public: 
"Can't last long", "You can't last long". 
"Said you couldn't trust him, his brother was just the same" 
"You can't last long". 


Harold: 
If I was many miles from here, 
I'd be sailing in an open boat on the sea 
Instead I'm on this window ledge, 
With the whole world below 
Up at the window 
Look at the window... 


Mr.Plod: 
"We can help you" 

Plod's Chorus: 
"We can help you" 

Mr. Plod: 
"We're all your friends, if you come on down 
and talk to us son" 

Harold: 
You must be joking 
Take a running jump 

The crowd was getting stronger and our Harold 
getting weaker; 
Forwards, backwards, swaying side to side 
Fearing the very worst 
They called his mother to the sight 
Upon the ledge beside him 
His mother made a last request. 


67-yr-old Mrs Barrel: 
"Come off the ledge if your father were alive he'd be very, 
very, very upset. 
"Just can't jump, you just can't jump" 
"Your shirt's all dirty, there's a man here from 
the B.B.C." 
"You just can't jump" 

Mr. Plod: 
"We can help you" 

Plod's Chorus: 
"We can help you" 

Mr. Plod: 
"We're all your friends, if you come on down 
and talk to us Harry" 

Harold: 
You must be joking. 
Take a running jump......

Genesis - Hearts on fire

In life there are those decisions 
Which direction you should take 
It's only later that you realize 
All those simple mistakes you make 
I don't like being alone 
Don't wanna be by myself 
But since you've gone that's all I can think oF 
I can't think of nothing else 

Oh, I said I'm sorry, soon I give it up 
You know I'm sorry, soon I give it up 
You know I'm sorry, soon I give it up 
Cos my heart's on fire 
My heart's on fire 

Woh can you take me there 
Oh, come back and take me there 
Cos I need to be with you 
Be there with you 

Yes there is no denying 
Our love is not untrue 
I know I've lied so many times before 
But deep down there's only you 
I need you here by my side 
Together our love could grow 
But first you have to believe that I want you 
More than you'll ever know 

Woh, I said I'm sorry and I give it up (give it up) 
You know I'm sorry, soon I give it up (give it up) 
You know I'm sorry, soon I give it up (give it up) 
Cos my heart's on fire 
My heart's on fire 

Woh can you take me there 
Oh, come back and take me there 
Cos I need to be with you 
Be there with you 

(give it up, give it up, give it up...) 

With it we take our chances 
What will be will be 
But I don't care what the people may think 
Just as long as you're here with me 
Don't like being alone 
Don't wanna be by myself 
And since you've gone, well that's all I can think of 
I can't think of nothing else 

Woh, I said I'm sorry and I give it up (give it up) 
You know I'm sorry soon I give it up (give it up) 
You know I'm sorry soon I give it up 
Cos my heart's on fire 
My heart's on fire 

Woh can you take me there 
Oh, come back and take me there 
Cos I need to be with you 
Be there with you 
You, be there with you 

Hearts on fire

Hearts on fire 
My heart's on fire 
Hearts on fire, hearts on fire...

Genesis - Heathaze

No cloud, a sleepy calm, 
Sunbaked earth that's cooled by gentle breeze, 
And trees with rustling leaves, 
Only endless days without a care, 
Nothing must be done. 

Silent as a day can be, 
Far-off sounds of others on their chosen run 
As they do all those things they feel give life some meaning, 
Even if they're dull. 

It's time to stop this dreaming, must rejoin the real world 
As revealed by orange lights and a smoky atmosphere. 

The trees and I are shaken by the same wind but whereas 
The trees will lose their withered leaves, 
I just can't seem to let them loose. 
And they can't refresh me those hot winds of the south. 
Oh I feel like an alien, a stranger in an alien place. 

Now the light is fading fast, 
Chances slip away, a time will come to pass 
When there'll be none, 
Then addicted to a perfumed poison, 
Betrayed by its aftertaste, 
Oh we shall lose the wonder and find nothing in return. 
Many are the substitutes but they're powerless on their own. 

Beware the fisherman who's casting out his line 
Into a dried up river bed, 
But don't try to tell him 'cos he won't believe you. 
Throw some bread to the ducks instead, it's easier that way. 
I feel like an alien, a stranger in an alien place. 

The trees and I are shaken by the same wind but whereas 
The trees will lose their withered leaves, 
I just can't seem to let them loose. 
And they can't refresh me those hot winds of the south. 
I feel like an alien, a stranger in an alien place.

Genesis - Here Comes The Supernatural Anaesthetist

Exhausted by all this conjecture, our hero gets the chance in a lifetime to meet his hero: Death. Death is wearing a light disguise, he made the outfit himself. He calls it the "Supernatural Anaesthetist." Death likes meeting people and wants to travel. Death approaches Rael with his special cannister, releases a puff, and appears to walk away content into the wall. 

Here comes the supernatural anaesthetist. 
If he wants you to snuff it, 
All he has to do is puff it 
- he's such a fine dancer.

Genesis - Hold on my heart

Hold on my heart 
just hold on to that feeling 
we both know we've been here before 
we both know what can happen 

Hold on my heart 
cos I'm looking over your shoulder 
ooh please don't rush in this time 
don't show her how you feel 

Hold on my heart 
throw me a lifeline 
I'll keep a place for you 
somewhere deep inside 

So hold on my heart 
please tell her to be patient 
cos there has never been a time 
that I wanted something more 

If I can recall this feeling 
and I know there's a chance 
oh I will be there 
yes I will be there 
be there for you 
whenever you want me to 
whenever you call oh I will be there 
Yes I will be there 

Hold on my heart 
don't let her see you crying 
no matter where I go 
she'll always be with me 

So hold on my heart 
just hold on to that feeling 
we both know we've been here before 
we both know what can happen 
So hold on my heart...

Genesis - Home by the sea

Creeping up the blind side, shinning up the wall 
stealing thru the dark of night 
Climbing thru a window, stepping to the floor 
checking to the left and the right 
Picking up the pieces, putting them away 
something doesn't feel quite right 

Help me someone, let me out of here 
then out of the dark was suddenly heard 
welcome to the Home by the Sea 

Coming out the woodwork, thru the open door 
pushing from above and below 
shadows but no substance, in the shape of men 
round and down and sideways they go 
adrift without direction, eyes that hold despair 
then as one they sign and they moan 

Help us someone, let us out of here 
living here so long undisturbed 
dreaming of the time we were free 
so many years ago 
before the time when we first heard 
welcome to the Home by the Sea 

Sit down Sit down 
Sit down Sit down Sit down 
as we relive our lives in what we tell you 

Images of sorrow, pictures of delight 
things that go to make up a life 
endless days of summer longer nights of gloom 
waiting for the morning light 
scenes of unimportance, photos in a frame 
things that go to make up a life 

Help us someone, let us out of here 
cos living here so long undisturbed 
dreaming of the time we were free 
so many years ago 
before the time when we first heard 
welcome to the Home by the Sea 

Sit down Sit down 
Sit down Sit down Sit down Sit down 
as we relive out lives in what we tell you 
let us relive out lives in what we tell you 

Sit down Sit down Sit down 
cos you won't get away 
no with us you will stay 
for the rest of your days - Sit down 
As we relive our lives in what we tell you 
Let us relive our lives in what we tell you

Genesis - I can't dance

Hot sun beating down 
Burning my feet just walking around 
Hot sun making me sweat 
Gators getting close, hasn't got me yet 

I can't dance, I can't talk 
The only thing about me is the way I walk 
I can't dance, I can't sing 
I'm just standing here selling everything 

Blue jeans sitting on the beach 
Her dog's talking to me 
But she's out of reach 
She's got a body under that shirt 
But all she wants to do 
Is rub my face in the dirt 

Cos, I can't dance, I can't talk 
The only thing about me is the way I walk 
I can't dance, I can't sing 
I'm just standing here selling 

And checking everything is in place 
You never know who's looking on 

Young punk spilling beer on my shoes 
Fat guy's talking to me trying to steal my blues 
Thick smoke, see her smiling through 
I never thought so much could happen just shooting pool 

But I can't dance, I can't talk 
The only thing about me is the way that I walk 
I can't dance, I can't sing 
I'm just standing here selling 

And checking everything is in place 
You never know who's looking on 
A perfect body with a perfect face 

No I can't dance, I can't talk 
The only thing about me is the way I walk 
No I can't dance, I can't sing 
I'm just standing here selling everything 

No I can't walk 
No I can't dance 
No no I can't dance 
No I say I can't sing

Genesis - I Know What I Like

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 your time; there's a future for you 
in the fire escape trade. Come up to town!" 
But I remebered 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. 

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.

Ooh yeah 
You know I never wanted to be closer 
And I'll still be here until it's over 
No, no I never wanted to be closer 
But you'll be back, I could've told you 

Well I always knew 
Yes I could see it coming 
Your ambitious streak 
You always want things beyond your reach 
Well now you've got what you wanted 
And you're free to be the things

And I'll still be here until it's over

Yeah, but you'll be back, I could've told you 

Well it seems to me 
That you've got to fight for yourself 
In this world we live in 
It's dog-eat-dog and never give in 
Why worry when you're holding the aces 
Don't throw it away cos you know 
I'd rather be you than me 
Up there looking down 
Tell me what do you see - oh 

hey hey yeah 

Ooh yeah 
You know I never wanted to be closer (never wanted) 
And I'll still be here 'til it's over 
No, no I never wanted to be closer (never wanted) 
Ooh but you'll be back, I could've told you 

It's been a long time coming 
But at last we seem to be moving on, straight ahead 
We're finally getting something done 
Time flies and 'fore you know it 
You'll be getting closer to where 
You always knew you'd be 
Up there looking down 
Tell me what do you see - oh 

Cos you know 
No, no I never wanted to be closer (never wanted) 
I'll still be here until it's over 
No, you know I never wanted to be closer (never wanted) 
Yeah but you'll be back, I could've told you

Genesis - If That's What You Need

Talking makes us human that's what I was told 
So why do I find it so difficult to let my feelings unfold 
Had I the courage to tell you I'd promise you this 

If that's what you need 
I'll be the river I'll be the mountain always beside you 
If that's what you need 
I will be stronger I will be braver than ever before 

When you came along and turned it all around 
I promised myself I wouldn't tell you 
Until we stood on solid ground 
Holding the candle between us I'll tell you this 

If that's what you need 
I'll be the river I'll be the mountain always beside you 
If that's what you need 
I will be stronger I will be braver than ever before 

And if there's any kind of danger 
I hear you calling out my name 
You can follow in my footsteps 
And I will lead you safely back again 

I never understood you however hard I tried 
But it took me a while until I realised 
That all the problems were mine 
Holding you nearer to me to tell you this 

If that's what you need 
I'll be the river I'll be the mountain always beside you 
If that's what you need 
I will be stronger I will be braver than ever before 
And when things go wrong 
I'll be your conscience there to remind you all of your life 
When you go wrong 
I'll be the reason you'll be protected all of your days

Genesis - Illegal alien

Got out of bed, wasn't feeling too good 
With my wallet and my passport, a new pair of shoes 
The sun is shining so I head for the park, 
With a bottle of Tequila, and a new pack of cigarettes 

I got a cousin and she got a friend, 
Who thought that her aunt knew a man who could help 
At his apartment I knocked on the door, 
He wouldn't come out until he got paid. 
Now don't tell anybody what I wanna do 
If they find out you know that they'll never let me through, cos 

It's no fun being an illegal alien, no 
It's no fun being an illegal alien 

Down at the office had to fill out the forms 
A pink one, a red one, the colours you choose, 
Up to the counter to see what they think 
They said "it doesn't count man, it ain't written in ink". 
I don't trust anybody, least not around here, cos 

It's no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya 
It's no fun being an illegal alien, no no no no no 
It's no fun being an illegal alien, I mean it when I tell ya that 
It's no fun being an illegal alien, 
An illegal alien, O.K. 

Consideration for your fellow man 
Would not hurt anybody, it sure fits in with my plan 
Over the border, there lies the promised land 
Where everything comes easy, you just hold out your hand 

Keep your suspicions, I've seen that look before 
But I ain't done nothing wrong now, is that such a suprise 
But I've got a sister who'd be willing to oblige 
She will do anything now to help me get to the outside 

So don't tell anybody what I wanna do 
If they find out you know that they'll never let me through, because 

It's no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya 
It's no fun being an illegal alien, and it's getting me down 
It's no fun being an illegal alien, no no no no no 
It's no fun being an illegal alien, yeah yeah yeah 

It's no fun (not much fun) being an illegal alien, I tell ya that 
It's no fun being an illegal alien, I tell ya 
It's no fun being an illegal alien, no no no 
It's no fun (not bloody much fun) being an illegal alien, 
It's no fun being an illegal alien, and that's what I am.

Genesis - Image Blown Out

People moving about the town upside down, you know why 
Little bits of coloured glass in the sky 
Children pushing Mummy down to the park, in a pram 
Look out the pavement's changing to jam 

See them running 
Now where are they going to 
To follow them, leads you nowhere 
Shout to them quickly but no one can hear you 
All they can do is to stare 

Your bowler hats are turning green 
Your city suits are coloured cream 
You, you who changed my life 
You made it misery, sadness reins alone 
Wonder why you do this, to me 
When I've tried so hard for you 

People talking to the man who's digging a hole, in his mind 
He's no need to worry, he's deaf and blind 
See the dustman doing his round in a Rolls made of glass 
He's gained everything because he's got class 

Friends are leaving me when I did everything 
Just as they used to behave 
Trying to copy them, losing my real self 
Floating away in a cloud 

Your minds have blown you out of step 
The rules you taught you never kept 
You, you who changed my life 
You made it misery, sadness reins alone 
Wonder why you do this, to me 
When I've tried so hard for you

Genesis - 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 
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 

I wish you were here 

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

Pick me up, put me down 
Push me in, turn me round 
Switch me on, let me go

Please take me away 
Far from this place 
Leaving me here 
Take me away 

To the furthest star in the sky 
Take me away 
To the deepest cave of the night 
Take me away 
Voices of love, here am I 
In the sad sad world of fear 
Take me away 
From the power of my ambition 
And I'll be happy 

I, I've conquered time 
Where will I go? 
Am I still mine? 
Take me away 

To the furthest star in the sky 
Take me away 
To the deepest cave of the night 
Take me away 
Voices of love, here am I 
In the sad sad world of fear 
Take me away 
From the power of my ambition 
And I'll be happy

Limbo - leading me nowhere 
Peace - now without motion 
I cry - when will I die?

My world, please set me free

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

Genesis - In The Cage

I got sunshine in my stomach 
Like I just rocked my baby to sleep. 
I got sunshine in my stomach 
But I can't keep me from creeping sleep, 
Sleep, deep in the deep. 

He wakes in a cold sweat with a strong urge to vomit. There's no sign of the cocoon and he can see more of the cave about him. There is much more of the glowing water dripping from the roof and stalactites and stalagmites are forming and decomposing at an alarming rate all around him. 

Rockface moves to press my skin 
White liquid turn sour within 
Turn fast - turn sour 
Turn sweat - turn sour. 
Must tell myself that I'm not here. 
I'm drowning in a liquid fear. 
Bottled in a strong compression, 
My distortion shows obsession 
In the cave. 
Get me out of this cave! 

As fear and shock register, he assures himself that self-control will provide some security, but this thought is abandoned as the stalactites and stalagmites lock into a fixed position, forming a cage whose bars are moving in towards him. 

If I keep my self-control, 
I'll be safe in my soul. 
And the childhood belief 
Brings a moment's relief, 
But my cynic soon returns 
And the lifeboat burns. 
My spirit just never learns. 

Stalactites, stalagmites 
Shut me in, lock me tight. 
Lips are dry, throat is dry. 
Feel like burning, stomach churning, 
I'm dressed up in a white costume 
Padding out leftover room. 
Body stretching, feel the wretching 
In the cage 
Get me out of the cage! 

At one moment there is a flash of light and he sees an infinite network of cages all strung together by a ropelike material. 

In the glare of a light, 
I see a strange kind of sight; 
Of cages joined to form a star 
Each person can't go very far; 
All tied to their things 
They're netted by their strings, 
Free to flutter in memories of their wasted wings. 

As the rocky bars press in on Rael's body, he sees his brother John outside, looking in. John's face is motionless despite screams for help, but in his vacant expression a tear of blood forms and trickles down his cheek. Then he calmly walks away leaving Rael to face the pains which are beginning to sweep through his body. 

Outside the cage I see my Brother John, 
He turns his head so slowly round. 
I cry out Help! before he can be gone, 
And he looks at me without a sound. 
And I shout out 'John please help me!' 
But he does not even want to try to speak. 
I'm helpless in my violent rage 
And a silent tear of blood dribbles down his cheek, 
And I watch him turn away and leave the cage. 
My little runaway. 

Raindrops keep failing on my head, they keep falling on my... 

In a trap, feel a strap 
Holding still. Pinned for kill. 
Chances narrow that I'll make it, 
In the cushioned straight-jacket. 
Just like 22nd Street, 
They got me by my neck and feet. 
Pressures building, can't take more. 
My headaches charge, earaches roar. 
In this pain 
Get me out of this pain. 

If I could change to liquid, 
I could fill the cracks up in the rocks. 
I know that I am solid 
And I am my own bad luck. 

However, just as John walks out of sight, the cage dissolves and Rael is left spinning like a top. 

Outside John disappears, my cage dissolves, 
without any reason my body revolves. 

Keep on turning, 
Keep on turning, 
Turning around, 
spinning around. 

round, round, round, round...

Genesis - In The Rapids

He dives down into the cold water. At first he is thrown onto the rocks, and pulled under the water by a fast moving channel, which takes him right past John, down river. 

Moving down the water 
John is drifting out of sight, 
Its only at the turning point 
That you find out how you fight. 

In the cold, feel the cold 
all around 
And the rush of crashing water 
Surrounds me with its sound. 

Rael manages to grab a rock, pull himself to the surface and catch his breath. As John is carried past, Rael throws himself in again and catches hold of his arm. He knocks John unconscious and then locking themselves together, he rides the rapids into the slow running water, where he can swim to safety. 

Striking out to reach you 
I can't get through to the other side, 
When you're racing in the rapids 
There's only one way, thats to ride. 

Taken down, taken down 
by the undertow 
I'm spiralled down the river bed, 
My fire is burning low. 
Catching hold of a rock that's firm, 
I'm waiting for John to be carried past. 
We hold together, hold together and shoot the rapids fast. 

But as he hauls his brother's limp body onto the bank he lies him out and looks hopefully into his eyes for a sign of life. He staggers back in recoil, for staring at him with eyes wide open is not John's face - but his own. 

And when the waters slow down 
The dark and the deep 
have no-one, no-one, no-one, no-one 
no-one left to keep. 
Hang on John! We're out of this at last. 
Somethings changed, that's not your face. 
It's mine - it's mine!

Genesis - In The Wilderness

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 time...

Genesis - In too deep

All that time I was searching, nowhere to run to, it started me 
thinking, 
Wondering what I could make of my life, and who'd be waiting, 
Asking all kinds of questions, to myself, but never finding the answers, 
Crying at the top of my voice, and no one listening, 
All this time, I still remember everything you said 
There's so much you promised, how could I ever forget. 

Listen, you know I love you, but I just can't take this, 
You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps, 
Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this, 
You know I want to, but I'm in too deep. 

So listen, listen to me, 
Ooh you must believe me, 
I can feel your eyes go thru me, 
But I don't know why. 

Ooh I know you're going, but I can't believe 
It's the way that you're leaving, 
It's like we never knew each other at all, it may be my fault, 
I gave you too many reasons, being alone, when I didn't want to 
I thought you'd always be there, I almost believed you, 
All this time, I still remember everything you said, oh 
There's so much you promised, how could I ever forget. 

Listen, you know I love you, but I just can't take this, 
You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps, 
Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this, 
You know I want to, but I'm in too deep. 

So listen, listen to me, 
I can feel your eyes go thru me 

It seems I've spent too long 
Only thinking about myself - oh 
Now I want to spend my life 
Just caring bout somebody else. 

Listen, you know I love you, but I just can't take this, 
You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps, 
Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this, 
You know I want to, but I'm in too deep. 

You know I love you, but I just can't take this, 
You know I love you, but I'm playing for keeps, 
Although I need you, I'm not gonna make this, 
You know I want to, but I'm in too deep...

Genesis - Inside and out

Brother Seems they're letting him out next year 
He's behaving himself, I hear 
Governor Conway says it will be fine 
Just as long as he can tow the line 

It's the same old story 
But it says here "Mum you're not to worry" 
'Cos some you lose and some you lose 

At this party, he was on his own 
All he did was say he'd take her home 
But it seems they didn't go straight there 
'cos on the porch, she told him, 
"put your hand here" 

Yes it's that same old story 
They told her mum she's not to worry 

Police "If what she says is so, 
we'll never let him go!" 

Him "Never a word could be heard 
Not even the sound of a bird 
Singing it over again, telling a different story 
Never the same as before 
See the summer going out by the door" 
Brother And now that you've paid for those lies 
Get another disguise 

"It's twenty years now since our Kid came free 
Oh I remember August '53 
But it wasn't quite like they said 
With that behind you, you can't plan ahead 
Yes it's the same old story 
They say you're free, but don't worry 
What they said's not so 
They'll never let you go!" 

Him "Never a word could be heard 
Not even the sound of a bird 
Singing it over again, telling a different story 
Never the same as before 
See the summer going out by the door" 
Brother And now that you've paid for those lies 
Get another disguise

Genesis - Invisible touch

Well 
I've been waiting 
waiting here so long 

But thinking nothing 
nothing could go wrong. 
But now I know: 
she has a built in ability to take everything she sees 

And now it seems I'm falling 
falling for her. 

She seems to have an invisible touch 
yeah 

She reaches in and grabs right hold of your heart. 
She seems to have an invisible touch 
yeah 

It takes control and slowly tears you apart. 

I don't really know her 
I only know her name 

But she crawls under your skin 
you're never quite the same. 
And now I know: she's got something you just can't trust 

It's something mysterious 
and now it seems I'm falling 
falling for her. 
She seems to have an invisible touch 
yeah . . . 

She seems to have an invisible touch 
yeah . . . 

Well 
she don't like losing 
to her it's still a game 

And though she will mess up your life 
you'll want her just the same. 
And now I know: 
she has a built in ability to take everything she sees 

And no

Genesis - It

Rael cannot look away from those eyes, mesmerized by his own image. In a quick movement, his consciousness darts from one face to the other, then back again, until his presence is no longer solidly contained in one or the other. In this fluid state he observes both bodies outlined in yellow and the surrounding scenery melting into a purple haze. With a sudden rush of energy up both spinal columns, their bodies, as well, finally dissolve into the haze. 

All this takes place without a single sunset, without a single bell ringing and without a single blossom falling from the sky. Yet it fills everything with its mysterious intoxicating presence. It's over to you. 

When its cold, it come slow 
it is warm, just watch it grow 
- all around me 
it is here. it is now. 

Just a little bit of it can bring you up or down. 
Like the supper it is cooking in your hometown. 
it is chicken, it is eggs, 
it is in between your legs. 
it is walking on the moon, 
leaving your cocoon. 

it is the jigsaw. it is purple haze. 
it never stays in one place, but it's not a passing phase, 
it is in the singles bar, in the distance of the face 
it is in between the cages, it is always in a space 
it is here. it is now. 

Any rock can be made to roll 
If you've enough of it to pay the toll 
it has no home in words or goal 
Not even in your favourite hole 
it is the hope for the dope 
Who rides the horse without a hoof 
it is shaken not stirred; 
Cocktails on the roof. 

When you eat right through it you see everything alive 
it is inside spirit, with enough grit to survive 
If you think that its pretentious, you've been taken for a ride. 
Look across the mirror sonny, before you choose decide 
it is here. it is now 
it is Real. it is Rael 

'cos it's only knock and knowall, but I like it...

Genesis - It's Gonna Get Better

Reach out, hands in the air, 
Don't care just what they're saying 
Hold out, just keep on hoping against hope 
That it's gonna get better 
Don't worry, there's no hurry for you, for me, 
Everything's gonna come around 
Shout out, someone will listen to you, to me, 
Someone's gonna see 

He calls me over and, calls me brother and I know 
always fighting and moonlighting and, well it never ends 
in the city, if you're all alone 
there's a sister and she's standing next to her man 
in the darkness you feel the sharpness of steel 
and it's always there, in the city, and you're all alone 

So reach out, hands in the air, 
Don't care just what they're saying 
Hold out, just keep on hoping against hope 
That it's gonna get better 
Don't worry, there's not hurry for you, for me, 
Everything's gonna come around 
Shout out, someone will listen to you, to me, 
Someone's gonna see... 

If it's gonna get better, it starts with a feeling 
If it's gonna get better, it's gonna take time 
If it's gonna get better, we gotta start now 
cos I know, everybody can feel it 
and I know, everybody will see it 
cos it shows, and that shows I'm not dreaming 
cos you know, and I know, it's time for a change

Genesis - It's yourself

Stepping out the back way 
Hoping nobody sees 
Feeling can be easy 
Think how I feel 

What will (can) you say? 
What will you do? 
Why can't you see? 
It's yourself I love 

(Don't you know I'm not asking 
You must have made up your mind 
Is it worth the pain you're causing 
To those you're leaving behind 

What will you say? 
What will you do? 
Why can't you see? 
It's yourself I love) 

Don't you know I'd like some answers 
You could give me a call 
I hardly know the reason 
And I really feel no good at all 

Where will you go? 
Where will you be? 
Where can I try? 
It's yourself I love

Genesis - Jesus he knows me

Do you see the face on the TV screen 
Coming at you every sunday 
See that face on the billboard 
Well, that man is me 

On the cover of the magazine 
There's no question why I'm smiling 
You buy a piece of paradise 
You buy a piece of me 

I'll get you everything you wanted 
I'll get you everything you need 
Don't need to believe in hereafter 
Just believe in me 

Cos Jesus he knows me 
And he knows I'm right 
I've been talking to Jesus all my life 
Oh yes he knows me 
And he knows I'm right 
And he's been telling me 
Everything is alright 

I believe in the family 
With my ever loving wife beside me 
But she don't know about my girlfriend 
Or the man I met last night 

Do you believe in God 
Cos that is what I'm selling 
And if you wanna get to heaven 
I'll see you right 

You won't even have to leave your house 
Or get out of your chair 
You don't even have to touch that dial 
Cos I'm everywhere 

Cos Jesus he knows me 
And he knows I'm right 
I've been talking to Jesus all my life 
Oh yes he knows me 
And he knows I'm right 
And he's been telling me 
Everything is alright 

Won't find me practising what I'm preaching 
Won't find me making no sacrifice 
But I can get you a pocketful of miracles 
If you promise to be good, try to be nice 
God will take good care of you 
Just do as I say, don't do as I do 

I'm counting my blessings 
Cos I've found true happiness 
Cos I'm getting richer, day by day 
You can find me in the phone book 
Just call my toll free number 
You can do it anyway you want 
Just do it right away 

There'll be no doubt in your mind 
You'll believe everything I'm saying 
If wanna get closer to him 
Get on your knees and start paying 

Cos Jesus he knows me 
And he knows I'm right 
I've been talking to Jesus all my life 
Oh yes he knows me 
And he knows I'm right 
And he's been telling me 
Everything is alright

Genesis - Just A Job To Do

It's no use saying that it's alright, it's alright. 
But where were you after midnight, midnight. 
Heard a Bang, Bang, Bang; Down they go 
It's just a job you do 
Cos the harder they run, and the harder they fall. 
I'm coming down hard on you. 

Now no-one saw what you looked like, what you looked like 
Like a stranger you came out of the night, out of the night 
Cos someone put the word on you, and I hope my aim is true. 

Cos I got a name, and I got a number, I gotta line on you 
I got a name, and I got a number, I'm coming after you 

Don't keep saying that it's alright, it's alright, 
It seems you went just a little too far this time 
Heard a Bang Bang Bang, and down you go, 
It's just a job I do, 
Cos the harder you run the harder you fall, 
I'm coming down hard on you, hard on you - I hope my aim is true. 

I got a name, and I got a number, I got a line on you 
I got a name, and I got a number, and I'm coming after you 

Keep running, Keep running; city to city 
Even if you're innocent, 
You can cause too much embarrassment 
And though your heart is breaking, 
And you know there's no mistaking.
