  1. Genesis is a name that holds its ground among names like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and The Doors which are my favorite rock bands. Rush is worth mentioning too of course.

  2. The best era of Genesis well I'd have to say everything with The Gabe and then the first several with Phil Collins like Trick Of The Tail and Wind And Wuthering up through Duke all very strong music. Today there will never be anything of this quality again. We are counting out time alright- backwards. "The Knife" and this whole album and Nursery Cryme/Foxtrot I bought after chancing on From Genesis To Revelation and knowing this was something really unique and amazing. I feel like the world is being devoured by the kind of hate this song is a protest against. I've got my own answer to "The Knife" in my head, but just one thing does anyone else hear that part towards the end where it sounds a bit like "21st Century Schizoid Man" by King Crimson?

  3. Tell me my life is about to begin
    Tell me that I am a hero
    Promise me all of your violent dreams
    Light up your body with anger
    Now, in this ugly world
    It is time to destroy all this evil
    Now, when I give a word
    Get ready to fight for your freedom
    Now

    Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
    We must strike at the lies
    That have spread like disease through our minds
    Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
    And we'll spread out our kindness
    To all who our love now deserve
    Some of you are going to die 
    Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide

    I'll give you the names of those you must kill
    All must die with their children
    Carry their heads to the palace of old
    Hang them high, let the blood flow
    Now, in this ugly world
    Break all the chains around us
    Now, the crusade has begun
    Give us a land fit for heroes
    Now

    Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
    We must strike at the lies
    That have spread like disease through our minds
    Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
    And we'll spread out our kindness
    To all who our love now deserve
    Some of you are going to die 
    Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide

    We are only wanting freedom
    We are only wanting freedom
    We are only wanting freedom
    We are only wanting freedom (Freedom, freedom, freedom, freedom)
    We are only wanting freedom (Things are getting out of control here today)
    We are only wanting freedom (OK men, fire over their heads!)

    We have won

    Some of you are going to die
    Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide
