EPITAPH LYRICS - KING CRIMSON

The wall on which the prophets wrote
Is cracking at the seams.
Upon the instruments of death
The sunlight brightly gleams.
When every man is torn apart
With nightmares and with dreams,
Will no one lay the laurel wreath
When silence drowns the screams.

Confusion will be my epitaph.
As I crawl a cracked and broken path
If we make it we can all sit back and laugh.
But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.

Between the iron gates of fate,
The seeds of time were sown,
And watered by the deeds of those
Who know and who are known;
Knowledge is a deadly friend
If no one sets the rules.
The fate of all mankind I see
Is in the hands of fools.

The wall on which the prophets wrote
Is cracking at the seams.
Upon the instruments of death
The sunlight brightly gleams.
When every man is torn apart
With nightmares and with dreams,
Will no one lay the laurel wreath
When silence drowns the screams.

Confusion will be my epitaph.
As I crawl a cracked and broken path
If we make it we can all sit back and laugh.
But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying.
Crying
Crying
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
Crying…

Are you serious, Kamil? | Reviewer: Zed | 9/8/13

Are you serious, Kamil? Maybe, you have mistaken this with the song in the Michael Jordan movie.

Epitaph is a great song, as most of the ones on the first few albums of King Crimson.

The same mistake in every draft. | Reviewer: Kamil | 12/11/09

The refren part seems to be aimless in yours transcriptions, although I can hear quite sharply "But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
Yes, I feel tomorrow I'll be flying
Yes I feel tomorrow I'll be trying!"

Which makes point, of two possible poles/outcomes and last sentence emphasize the power of ones will. This is how I understand this song, and I am really suprised that nobody else haven't notice that.

King Crimson - The first and greatest of the British Prog/Rock ensembles. | Reviewer: John Patrick Lennon | 5/28/07

King Crimson shocked the rock world in 1969 with it's "in your face" style of rock, including elements of modern, be-bop, and improvisational jazz, and, often-times, smashing the listener over the head with a sudden burst of "musique concrete". Epitaph, in a fashion of an almost elegilogical dirge, mixed with the poetic and prophetic lyrics of Peter Sinfield, alerts the listener to the bands' solid virtuosity, while awashing us with what for a while was, next to Fripp's 10,000 lb. guitar effects, King Crimson's signature instrument, the Mellotron. Classic, must have, in any library. jpl
