Supper's Ready

Lyrics

Walking across the sitting-room, I turn the television off.
Sitting beside you, I look into your eyes.
As the sound of motor cars fades in the night time,
I swear I saw your face change, it didn't seem quite right.

We watch in reverence, as Narcissus is turned to a flower.

Always infuses me with humility, intrigue and great memories of really long bike rides. Brilliant piece of art that doesn't have to sit on a wall.

What can you say,....it's like a microcosm of a millennium, with an apocalypse at the end.In 9/8 that is!

LOVE this ancient Genesis! Those were the days.

This is pure genius. It is a shame that bands no longer will even try to put together pieces like this. Forget the length of the piece, the way it flows from section to section, and lyrically this is one of my 10 favorite songs of all time. Gabriel at his best.

I'll add a brief comment. One of the five greatest long progressive pieces ever composed. But not quite the best.

This is the greatest song by genesis, I love think about my childhood and being called for supper,even when as a child you did not want to stop playing with your friends. In retrospect, when you know you don't want to die, the next dimension is waiting with anew meal. Enjoy!

Definitely one of the longest and most intriguing songs ever

"I know a farmer who looks after the farm
With water clear he tends to his harvest
I know a fireman who looks after the fire..."

How do they decide if "Great Musicianship " is a song feature or not? Shouldn't it be a default characterist i c for some bands, like, um, maybe Genesis for example.

No lyrics yet, eh?

Tremendous Song!!!

Yes, it's been a long, long time.

Only Peter Gabriel and Genesis could top their own work with an even more expansive masterpiece, "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway."
