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

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.
