30 giorni di musica: Day 26 i Genesis


Ecco se fossi brava a suonare il piano come Tony Banks in sto pezzo sicuramente mi metterei a suonarlo. L’intro di Firth of Fifth dei Genesis è la cosa più bella che mi sia capitata di sentire in tutta la mia vita. E di cose belle ne ho sentite in più di una ventina d’anni che sento musica. Ma questa è davvero unica. I Genesis con Peter Gabriel erano una cosa unica. Irripetibile.

“Firth Of Fifth”
The path is clear
Though no eyes can see
The course laid down long before
And so with gods and men
The sheep remain inside their pen
Though many times they’ve seen the way to leave

He rides majestic
Past homes of men
Who care not or gaze with joy
To see reflected there
The trees, the sky, the lily fair
The scene of death is lying just below

The mountain cuts off the town from view
Like a cancer growth is removed by skill
Let it be revealed
A waterfall, his madrigal
An inland sea, his symphony

Undinal songs
Urge the sailors on
Till lured by the sirens’ cry

Now as the river dissolves in sea
So Neptune has claimed another soul
And so with gods and men
The sheep remain inside their pen
Until the Shepherd leads his flock away

The sands of time were eroded by
The river of constant change
