Stagnation Lyrics - Genesis

Review The Song (2)

To Thomas S. Eiselberg, a very rich man, who was wise enough to spend all his fortunes in burying himself many miles beneath the ground. As the only surviving member of the human race, he inherited the whole world.

Here today the red sky tells his tale,
but the only listening eyes are mine
There is peace amongst the hills,
and the night will cover all my pride.
Blest are they who smile from bodies free,
seems to me like any other crowd
who are waiting to be saved.

Wait, there still is time for washing in the pool,
wash away the past.
Moon, my long-lost friend is smiling from above,
smiling at my tears.
Come we'll walk the path to take us to my home,
keep outside the night.
The ice-cold knife has come to decorate the dead,

sponsored links
And each will find a home,
And there will still be time,
for loving my friend
- You are there -

And Will I wait for ever, beside the silent mirror
And fish for bitter minnows amongst the weeds and slimy water.

I, I...said I want to sit down
I, I...said I want to sit down.
I want a drink - I want a drink,
To take all the dust and the dirt from my throat,
I want a drink - I want a drink,
To wash out the filth that is deep in my guts,
I want a drink.

You can here elements of the music in Stagnation in many of their later songs n listen to Stagnation and the listen closely to Cinema Show. There are also elements of it all the way through their albums to Wind and Wuthering.

Absolutely... Blithe. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/30/10

Genesis is a great band and this is an exellent song. Though the Trespass album isn't one of my favorites, this is a great song. The beginning is boring and sad, building up to where he waits forever beside the silent mirror, fishing for bitter minnows. Best part of the song.
