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

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 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.

Genesis A Place To Call My Own

And I’ve nearly found a place to call my own

Waking gently feel her presence near

Devil shattered, warmth is everywhere

I am only a child of hers, my guardian goddess

Now, I’m reaching my journey’s end inside her womb

And I think I’ve found a place to call my own

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 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 A Winter’s Tale

The winter’s bitterness is lost

It’s the fireside warmth that comforts me

The peace for all my thoughts

The night brings shadows to the street

It’s the time for dreams of things to come

To creep inside their lives

You’re concealing every feeling

Can you find me, deep inside you

Let me touch you, let me keep you

Let me know you’re there

You’re concealing every feeling

Can you find me, no

Yes deep inside you’re a part of me

Every day I need to know I’m there, I’m there, I’m there

[with previous verse sung behind]

The evening fantasy begins

In the sandy lanes that cross the fields

The gentle rain will fall

The morning sweeps away the night

And the dreams of you still haunt my thoughts

Bring meaning to my life

You’re concealing every feeling

Can you find me, deep inside you

Let me touch you, let me keep you

Let me know you’re there

You’re concealing every feeling

Can you find me, no

Yes deep inside you’re a part of me

Every day I need to know I’m there, I’m there, I’m there

[with previous verse sung behind]

[ad lib to fade]

Can you hold me with your small hand

Prepare much, length and beauty of our tiny lives

Future’s brighter now

Our world is everything to me, to know, I’m there

Lord! You see the world is brighter than the sky

The sky is shining everywhere in our world

You know you never said in your many times, all in me instead

Genesis A Trick Of The Tail

Bored of the life on the city of gold

He’d left and let nobody know

Gone were the towers he had known from a child

Alone with the dream of a life

He travelled the wide open road

The blinkered arcade

In search of another to share in his life

Nowhere

Everyone looked so strange to him

They’ve got no horns and they’ve got no tail

They don’t even know of our existence

Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold

That lies in the deep distance, he cried

And wept as they led him away to a cage

Beast that can talk, read the sign

The creatures they pushed and they prodded his frame

And questioned his story again

But soon they grew bored of their prey

Beast that can talk?

More like a freak or publicity stunt

Oh

No

They’ve got no horns and they’ve got no tail

They don’t even know of our existence

Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold

That lies in the deep distance, he cried

And broke down the door of the cage and marched on out

He grabbed a creature by the scruff of his neck, pointing out:

There, beyond the bounds of your weak imagination

Lie the noble towers of my city, bright and gold

Let me take you there, show you a living story

Let me show you others such as me

Why did I ever leave?

They’ve got no horns and they’ve got no tail

They don’t even know of our existence

Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold

That lies in the deep distance, he cried

And wept.

And so we set out with the beast and his horns

And his crazy description of home

After many days journey we came to a peak

Where the beast gazed abroad and cried out

We followed his gaze and we thought that maybe we saw

A spire of gold – no, a trick of the eye that’s all

But the beast was gone and a voice was heard

They’ve got no horns and they’ve got no tail

They don’t even know of our existence

Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold

That lies in the deep distance

Hello friend, welcome home

Genesis Am I Very Wrong?

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.
