GENESIS


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

And it's...
Hello babe
With your guardian eyes so blue
Hey, my baby
Don't you know our love is true?

Coming closer with our eyes
A distance falls around our bodies
Out in the garden
The moon seems very bright
Six saintly shrouded men
Move across the lawn slowly
The seventh walks in front
With a cross held high in hand

And it's...
Hey babe
Your supper's waiting for you
Hey, my baby
Don't you know
Our love is true

I've been so far from here
Far from your warm arms
It's good to feel you again
It's been a long long time
Hasn't it?

I know a farmer
Who looks after the farm
With water clear
He cares for all his harvest

I know a fireman who looks after the fire

You
Can't you see
He's fooled you all?

Yes, he's here again
Can't you see he's fooled you all?

Share his peace
Sign the lease
He's a supersonic scientist
He's the guaranteed eternal
Sanctuary man

Look
Look into my mouth he cries
And all the children
Lost down many paths,
I bet my life
You'll walk inside

Hand in hand
Gland in gland
With a spoonful of miracle
He's the guaranteed eternal
Sanctuary

We will rock you
Rock you, little snake
We will keep you snug and warm

Wearing feelings on our faces
While our faces took a rest,
We walked across the fields to see
The children of the West

But we saw a host of dark skinned warriors
Standing still below the ground
Waiting for battle!

The fight's begun
They've been released
Killing foe for peace
Bang, bang, bang
Bang, bang, bang

And they're
Giving me a wonderful potion
'Cos I cannot contain my emotion

And even though
I'm feeling good
Something tells me
I'd better
Activate my prayer capsule

Today's a day to celebrate
The foe have met their fate.
The order
For rejoicing
And dancing
Has come from our warlord

Wandering through the chaos
The battle has left
We climb up a mountain
Of human flesh
To a plateau
Of green grass
And green trees
Full of life

A young figure
Sits still by a pool
He's been stamped
"Human Bacon"
By some butchery tool
(He is you)

Social Security
Took care of this lad
We watch in reverence
As Narcissus is turned
To a flower
A flower?

If you go down to Willow Farm
To look for butterflies
Flutterbyes
Gutterflies

Open your eyes
It's full of surprise
Everyone lies
Like the fox on the rocks
And the musical box

Oh
There's Mum & Dad
And good and bad
And everyone's happy to be here

There's Winston Churchill
Dressed in drag
He used to be
A British flag
Plastic bag
What a drag

The frog was a prince
The prince was a brick
The brick was an egg
The egg was a bird

(Fly away, you sweet little thing
They're hard on your tail)
Hadn't you heard?
(They're going to change you into a human being!)

Yes
We're happy as fish
And gorgeous as geese
And wonderfully clean in the morning

We've got everything
We're growing everything
We've got some in
We've got some out
We've got some
Wild things floating about!

Everyone
We're changing everyone
You name them all
We've had them here
And the real stars
Are still to appear!

ALL CHANGE!

Feel your body melt
Mum to mud
To mad to dad
Dad diddley office
Dad diddley office
You're all full of ball

Dad to dam
To dum to mum
Mum diddley washing
Mum diddley washing
You're all full of ball.

Let me hear your lies
We're living this up to the eyes
Ooee-ooee-ooee-oowaa
Momma, I want you now!

And as you listen
To my voice
To look for hidden doors
Tidy floors
More applause

You've been here all the time
Like it or not
Like what you got
You're under the soil
(The soil, the soil)
Yes, deep in the soil
(The soil, the soil, the soil, the soil!)

So we'll end with a whistle
And end with a bang
And all of us fit in our places

(Co-starring the delicious talents of Gabble Ratchet)

With the guards of Magog
Swarming around
The Pied Piper
Takes his children underground

Dragons
Coming
Out of the sea
Shimmering silver head of wisdom
Looking at me

He brings down the fire
From the skies
You can tell he's doing well
By the look in human eyes
Better not compromise
It won't be easy

666 is no longer alone
He's getting out
The marrow in your back bone

And the seven trumpets blowing
Sweet rock and roll
Gonna blow right down
Inside your soul

Pythagoras with the looking glass
Reflects the full moon,
In blood, he's
Writing the lyrics
Of a brand new tune

And it's
Hey, babe
With your guardian eyes so blue
Hey, my baby
Don't you know
Our love is true?

I've been so far from here
Far from your loving arms
Now I'm back again
And babe it's gonna work out fine

Can't you feel our souls ignite
Shedding ever changing colours
In the darkness of the fading night

Like the river
Joins the ocean
As the germ in a seed grows
We've finally been freed
To get back home

There's an angel standing
In the sun
And he's crying
With a loud voice
"This is the supper
Of the mighty one"

Lord of Lords
King of Kings
Has returned
To lead his children home
To take them to the new
Jerusalem.
