The Fountain Of Salmacis

Lyrics

From a dense forest of tall dark pinewood, Mount Ida rises like an island.
Within a hidden cave, nymphs had kept a child;
Hermaphroditus, son of gods, so afraid of their love.

As the dawn creeps up the sky

Genesis at their very best!
Love this!
Great song...as are the similar tracks listed above....lov e them all.
One of most favoritest songs everer... truly...
Genesis not Rock, Genesis be amongst the greatest of all known written music
Some of Phil's best drumming
Seriously, this song has some of the greatest guitar work ever. I just had to CRANK IT UP, even though I'm at work in an office. Luckily, all the people in the offices around mine are gone for the long weekend. :D
One of my favorite Genesis songs, along with White Mountain and Firth of Fifth. I miss the old days... you know, before I was alive, when things were more awesome (not my fault, I swear - some things were cool in the 80s too).
Love this song. Great story telling.
I like the jazzy touches in the bass and drums under the classical organ motif and sweeping mellotron.

This song tells a really interesting story based on an ancient Greek myth.
