Back In N.Y.C.

Lyrics

No-one seems to take up the chase, and with the familiar faces fresh in his mind he moves into a reconstruction of his old life, above ground - Too much time was one thing he didn't need, so he used to cut through it with a little speed. He was better off dead, than slow in the head. His momma and poppa had taken a ride on his back, so he left very quickly to join The Pack.


I see faces and traces of home back in New York City -
So you think I'm a tough kid? Is that what you heard?
Well I like to see some action and it gets into my blood.

Agree w Seydlitz... Vocal effects are almost nonexistent on the remaster of Lamb :( I'll keep vinyl and remaster versions on my ipod!!
This might be my favorite off Lamb. I got it on vinyl for 4 bucks and got super obsessed! Love me some concept album
Sussudio it was not, eh?

Best prog song ever!
I do think it was prog like this that eventually killed it, completely unapproachab l e unless you already have a taste for it. BTW the remastered version destroyed the distorted vocals.

Ohps, forgot it's already Winter. Hope it was great.

I'd love to see that but considering how much time has passed I don't think Peter Gabriel has the physical skills to perform it. It is or was a performance. I saw Gabriel do the Musical Box with Genesis in 1973. I think that I would be dissapointed today although he still has great vocal skills. But If I were younger I would go for it. So don't miss it. After all, he isn't going to last forever.
THE MUSICAL BOX IS TOURING BEHIND THE LAMB AGAIN!!! COMING THIS FALL!!!

This was when Genesis created music, it was an experience to listen to new releases
