The Actor

Lyrics

The curtain rises on the scene,
With someone chanting to be free.
The play unfolds before my eyes,
Descends the actor who is me.

This song still makes me cry.
We are all actors upon the stage of life.
great music!
A fav of the many great Moody tunes. Justin should get more credit as a singer, songwriter.

I miss Ray Thomas.
Love this song, it has a haunting feel to it.

It would be so cool if young musicians would pick up this type of sound...like - jump over the 80s or 90s sound and build off the progressive sounds of the older bands. This would make parents happy to finance them AND create a new appreciation for this older gentler sound.
But since this style is so dated.... people born after 1990 would assume it 'fresh and new'. If your kid is starting a band, tell them this. As it offers a whole new possibility to make some serious cash flow.
First time hearing it and I love it. Thought I knew all of them. Wish there were lyrics.

Saw them in Hershey last June! Great Show! I have been a fan since the 60's. Listening to their music is trip down memory lane for me! Each album marks a period in my life.
