Burning Rope

Lyrics

The warming sun, the cooling rain
The snowflake drifting on the breath of the breeze
The lightning bolt that clears the sky for you
Yet only eagles seem to pass on through

Despite the fact that Gabriel was long gone by this time, they still appear to be trying to maintain their progressive rock roots. Good effort.

I forgot what an amazing song this is. Good to hear it again.
Genesis still in their prime at the time; moody, reflective, tugs at the heart strings.
I love "Burning Rope". What those philosphical lyrics are! Really amaizing.
Agree Rich!!!
One of the best genesis songs of all time- all the progressive elements are there the beautiful keyboards the intense drumming the solid bass playing and the beautiful vocals ala phil collins- but i think its a tony banks composition and i agree the gtr playing is kind of like hackett- just a brilliant tune from an all around brilliant band - still fresh after 32 years this tune was released in 1978- thanks pandora
I love this song too, but I must say that Mike is doing his best to sound "Hackett-esq u e " here...the whole album actually, but it works and I as a huge fan don't mind at all. Rutherford developed his own style as time went on.
I like this song a lot. Don't know what else to say.
This is Genesis at its best. This album, so underated, shows what they were like right at thetransitio n between the old group with the Gabrial style, and the new group that was all Banks Rutherford and Collins. One of Mr rutherfords best compositions . Truely awesome.
