  1. I have loved this album since 1978, the first time I heard it. These guys, for being a fantastic HM band really put out an incredible jazzy album. I play this for people and always get a "WTF" response. This is some amazing music folks.

  2. Lyrics:

    sailed the seas of broken men and freed their wealthy wives
    a warriors dream of riches gold wiped up with blooded knives
    the captain the witches warning of stories in far off lands
    well it’s bread and water the prisoners daughter,
    knights in shinning gold
    the prisoners hard luck story with the pain of an empty cry
    with the lights of a far away temple drifting away, drifting away

    you and your dreams in a world of fantasy, turn around chimed the bells
    in a world of silvered fire
    run said the wind and the words he sadly spoke,
    you can lean on me cried the oak
    and the weeping willow cried at the break of morning,
    the crack upon the empty wall
    and the house that little jack built touching the ground

    paths of gold a story book in tidy rhyme,
    soldiers bold the tortures that they hid right down inside
    the devil the captain dealing in worthy souls,
    oh its silk and satin and children clapping a thousand marching feet
    the prisoners hard luck story with the pain of an empty cry
    with the lights of a far away temple drifting away, drifting away

    you and your dreams in a world of fantasy, turn around chimed the bells
    in a world of silvered fire
    run said the wind and the words he sadly spoke,
    you can lean on me cried the oak
    run said the wind and the words he softly cried,
    you can lean on me as he sighed
    and the weeping willow cried at the break of morning,
    the crack upon the empty wall
    and the house that little jack built touching the ground

  3. Heard this KILLER for the first time when I was 9 or 10 years old listening to my once great rock station in STL.  I'm still moved by the musical transitions, and progressions, in this piece of music,  but alas, there are very few who have the taste to truly appreciate this masterpiece!I wish a super hot, artistic, woman would let me know I'm wrong.  And we could talk about music, meet, and have a life where we just groove on the finer artistic things in this life.  I'm dreaming, I know.  But, I still believe in dreaming…what if???
