5/5

(*****) Sorti en Juin 98, Archive 67-75 est vraiment le cadeau de Genesis à ses fans. Véritablement un superbe objet. Les deux premiers disques reprènnent l’intégralité de « The lamb lies down on broadway » Live. Comme Peter utilisait à l’époque beaucoup de déguisements sur scène, il était difficile de l’entendre chanter. Le Peter de 95 a donc entièrement rechanté the Lamb et sa voix de 95 a été mélangée à celle de 75 là où c’était nécessaire, parfois en plein milieu d’un vers, ce qui donne un aspect étrange à cet enregistrement au premier abord, mais qui devient totalement magique une fois qu’on est habitué, comme si Peter n’avait jamais quitté Genesis, un sorte de solution de continuité. Steve Hackett a lui aussi fait quelques retouches sur ses parties guitares, notamment sur le solo final de The Lamia et c’est superbe, là aussi. Le troisième disque quant à lui est principalement composé de morceaux de la tournée Selling England, et jamais entendus auparavant, dont Supper’s Ready, enfin chanté par Peter en concert ! La fin du troisième disque contient des morceaux inédits. Le quatrième disque recueille des démos du Genesis d’avant From Genesis to Revelation et on découvre ces morceaux débarrassés de violon et tout de suite, tout va mieux.

Leaving all the world to play they disappear
And the leaves have gathered dust to run like deer
Tearing pieces from our lives to feed the dawn
Mist surrounds the seagulls christened by the storm

Music, all I hear is music – guaranteed to please
And I look for something else
Rain drops pouring down the rooftops
Flowing in the drains
As the people run their lives
As their lives are run by time

Fighting enemies with weapons made to kill
Death is easy as a substitute for pride
Victors join together, happy in their bed
Leaving cold outside the children of the dead

Music, all I hear is music – guaranteed to please
And I look for something else
Rain drops pouring down the rooftops
Flowing in the drains
As the people run their lives
As their lives are run by time…déon

Rise up! Take your lyre and sing
Listen! To the news I bring

Frosty breath on the window
See a friend in the snow that gently falls
Feel the truth in those sad eyes
See the smile that’s so rare
Just like the love
She waits for…

And she plays a game of her own
As she sleeps within the firelight
For her dreams are incredibly wild
But they’re lost and gone forever, with the dawn

Fair and friend of the fleece spoke
Warrior bold, shepherd wise, fair prince of peace
Someone waits in the doorway
On a white horse he comes and holds out the hand
She waits for…

So they ride through a valley of mist
To a castle in the heavens
Where he lays her down to rest
But he’s lost and gone forever, with the dawn

See her writhe in her dream, then…

Mermaids sing in the sunset
Sadly asking if beauty ever walks free
But Queen Frost only whispers
Maidens you will remain, to be free

See her writhe in her dreams…

Lord of the seven sons!
Keeper of the keys of time!
(Hear me)

Pacidy, my love
Glowing ember of evening
Your eyes are frozen with guilt
I read my fate on your cheeks
The smoldering coals of a passion
Once a meadow of hope

Days of minstrels and bright steeds
Autumn nights and silk sheets
Your tender battle shadow on me
Scented lavender kiss-es, soft and warm
The union of strength in a love against life
Love against life

Pacidy, my love
Your touch, so limp, was once frenzied
Your argon lips were once sweet
A life has slipped through my hands
My spirits sift in a stale sigh
Did love exist as a dream?

Mother fawn of a pine wood
Shepherdess of my grief
Veils a freedom not for me
Far beyond the steep ridge, where blizzards
Blast the spirit of man, the frailest of beasts
Frailest of beasts

Where blizzards
Blast the spirit of man, the frailest of beasts
Frailest of beasts

Where blizzards
Blast the spirit of man, the frailest of beasts
Frailest of beasts

Please, I beg you hear this humble voice
Please, pale orchid flower, music of my soul
Alone, upon the windswept way
Descends the nightingale
She swoops to soothe my aching brow
Let us now make love

Please, I beg you hear this humble voice
Please, my emerald goddess, wash away the wounds
Alone, the pilgrim thirsts and falls
The Queen runs to his call
She stoops to soothe his aching brow
Let us now make love

Make love, make love
Let us, let us, let us make love (love, love)
Love, sweet heavenly love (love, love)
I promise you life will be good (love, love)
If you just stand down and try (love, love)
To be one with, so feel pride

Let us make love till the end of time
Now and forever

Please, I beg you hear this humble voice
Please, dear oyster shell reveal your hidden pearl
Alone, the deaf, the sick, the blind
Turn grimly for the knife
The prophet stoops to soothe their brow
Let us now make love

Make love, make love
Let us, let us, let us make love (love, love)
Sweet heavenly love (love, love)
I promise you life will be good (love, love)
If you just stand down and try (love, love)
To be one with, so feel pride

Let us make love till the end of time
Now and forever

Please, I beg you hear this humble voice
Come, let’s walk the windy roads to find the truth
Revealed, each part has now been played
Your beauty will not fade
So cling to me, fulfill your vow
Let us now make love

(Love, love)
Sweet heavenly love (love, love)
I promise you life will be good (love, love)
If you just stand down and try (love, love)
To be one with, so feel pride

Let us make love till the end of time
Now and forever
Let us now make love
Till the end of time

I can pacify your violence
I can guarantee no pain
leave the ugly force of motion
deep inside your guilty brain

Going out to get you
Going out to get you
Going out to get you
Pulpit of the python
Chasing out the innocents defiled

Leave your weapon in the cool stream
Rest your body on the stone
Multitude will beckon to a clear sky
Rise again to follow all who came
Are you really evil?

I saw you in the Devil’s Kitchen
Cooking for the Queen of Spades
Hiding in your pretty laces
Licking fingers sunk in jam

Going out to get you
Going out to get you
Going out to get you
Pulpit of the python
Chasing out the innocents defiled

Curl your flimsy leaves around me
Sorceress you cannot still command
Burning in the orifice of Hades
Sacrifice your magic to my hand
Are you really evil?

I saw you in the hermit’s garden
picking roots to kill his flesh
Picking spells to take his body
Trapping him inside your mesh

Going out to get you
Going out to get you
Going out to get you
Pulpit of the python
Chasing out the innocents defiled

(Banks/Gabriel/Phillips/Rutherford/Mayhew)


See my hand is moving
touching all that’s real
And once it stroked love’s body
now it claws the past.

The scent of a flower,
The colours of the morning,
Friends to believe in,
Tears soon forgotten,
See how the rain drives away, another day.

If a leaf as fallen
does the tree lie broken?
And if we draw some water
does the well run dry?

The sigh of a mother,
The screaming of lovers,
Like two angry tigers,
They tear at each other,
See how for him lifetime’s fears disappear.

Once Jesus suffered,
Heaven could not see him.
And now my ship is sinking,
The captain stands alone.

A pawn on a chessboard,
A false move by God will now destroy me,
But wait, on the horizon,
A new dawn seems to be rising,
Never to recall this passerby, born to die.

(Banks/Gabriel/Philips/Rutherford)

Do you have champagne in your dreams ?
Where do you dine with Kings and Queens ?
Where have you put your plastic face ?

The highest cave was yours, not mine
The biggest slave was yours
My adoration’s on the wane
Is this your dying day?

The curtain falls, the lights go out
You move, you think, you talk, you shout
The portrait stares, your eyes fight back
The magic wand brings all you lack

The highest cave was yours, not mine
The biggest slave was yours
My adoration’s on the wane
Is this your dying day?

Build me a mountain that I may see the sky
Build me a tunnel that I may see the world

The ball’s begun; the champagne’s flat
The music swings, they do « The Jack »
The vultures scream, the storm’s ahead
The ball is over: you’re dead.

The highest cave was yours, not mine
The biggest slave was yours
My adoration’s on the wane
Is this your dying day?

Build me a mountain that I may see the sky
Build me a tunnel that I may see the world

(Banks/Gabriel/Philips/Rutherford)


People moving about the town upside down, you know why
Little bits of coloured glass in the sky
Children pushing Mummy down to the park, in a pram
Look out the pavement’s changing to jam

See them running
Now where are they going to
To follow them, leads you nowhere
Shout to them quickly but no one can hear you
All they can do is to stare

Your bowler hats are turning green
Your city suits are coloured cream
You, you who changed my life
You made it misery, sadness reins alone
Wonder why you do this, to me
When I’ve tried so hard for you

People talking to the man who’s digging a hole, in his mind
He’s no need to worry, he’s deaf and blind
See the dustman doing his round in a Rolls made of glass
He’s gained everything because he’s got class

Friends are leaving me when I did everything
Just as they used to behave
Trying to copy them, losing my real self
Floating away in a cloud

Your minds have blown you out of step
The rules you taught you never kept
You, you who changed my life
You made it misery, sadness reins alone
Wonder why you do this, to me
When I’ve tried so hard for you

(Banks/Gabriel)


Don’t get me wrong
I think I’m in love
But the feeling in the word is more
Than your crystal eyes will ever see in me
Don’t get me wrong
Open your eyes
Although I cannot show my heart
I’ll watch and hope while you are near to me

One day I’ll capture you
And call you to my side
One day I’ll take you from
The boredom of our lives
One day we’ll fly away
To the kingdom of my dreams
One day I’ll find myself
And wrap it in my love for you

Birds of the sky, may I borrow your wings?
Very soon I’ll ask my love
To travel with me to the world outside
Cherry trees, may I borrow your bloom?
Very soon I’ll ask my love
To come inside the nest I’ll build alone

One day I’ll capture you
And call you to my side
One day I’ll take you from
The boredom of our lives
One day we’ll fly away
To the kingdom of my dreams
One day I’ll find myself
And wrap it in my love for you

Animal friends
Help me decide
When should I ask my love to leave?
I’ll beg of you that she’ll say yes to me
Breathe in deep
Now is the time
She looks at me and gently smiles
As if she knew I’d ask her all the time

One day I’ll capture you
And call you to my side
One day I’ll take you from
The boredom of our lives
One day we’ll fly away
To the kingdom of my dreams
One day I’ll find myself
And wrap it in my love for you

(Banks/Gabriel)


We’re waiting for you
Come and join us now
We need you with us
Come and join us now

Look inside your mind
See the darkness is creeping out
I can see in the softness there
Where the sunshine is gliding in
Fill your mind with love
Find the world of future glory

You can meet yourself
Where the sour turns to sweet
Leave your ugly selfish shell
To melt in the glowing flames
Can you sense the change?
See your eyes, now listen

We’re waiting for you
Come and join us now
We want you with us
Come and join us now

Paint your face all white
To show the peace inside
Drift away while the saffron burns
To the land where the rainbow ends
Can you sense the change?
See your eyes in focus

We’re waiting for you
Come and join us now
We need you with us
Come and join us now

We’re waiting for you
Come and join us now
We need you with us
Come and join us now

We want you with us
Come and join us now
We need you with us
Come and join us now

Ocean of motion
Squirming around and up and down
Pushing together
Scattering mountains all around you

That is the sound of a new born world
And the light from a curious sky
It has begun
You’re in the hands of destiny

Thrashing with violence
Hurling its lava up and down
Furnace of frenzy
Burning with power uncontrolled

That is the sound of a new born world
And the light from a curious sky
It has begun
You’re in the hands of destiny

Is that the chariot with stallions gold?
Is that a prince of heaven on the ground?
Is that the roar of a thundercrash?
This is my world and it’s waiting to be crowned
Father, son, looks down with happiness
Life is on its way

Ocean of motion
Squirming around and up and down
Pushing together
Scattering mountains all around you

That is the sound of a new born world
And the light from a curious sky
It has begun
You’re in the hands of destiny

Is that the chariot with stallions gold?
Is that a prince of heaven on the ground?
Is that the roar of a thundercrash?
This is my world and it’s waiting to be crowned
Father, son, looks down with happiness
Life is on its way

I’ll tell you the story
Of how my life ran
Well, at first it was easy, but it finished so hard.

Hey! You started me going,
Hey! I was so happy
Hey! You started me going inside me
I need your love right now!

Promises broken; the things I believed in
You were so nice, girl
And I couldn’t see through it.

Hey! You ended my happiness
Hey! You needed my love
Hey! You ruined the world I was planning
Hey! You left it all too late

Hey! It’s all over now
Hey! You want to apologise
Hey! Well look at me, hundreds of pieces.
Why did you lead me on?

(Banks/Gabriel/Philips/Rutherford)

Pastel colours bring the sky to life
Cleanse the night with a breath of dawn
Silence broken when a baby cries
Piercing the mist that cloaks the cool outside

The streets are beginning to moan gently now
Daylight lays on the ground
Dew drops trickle down leaves gently now
Soaking the pathway of the father’s motions

Windows opening as the postman calls
Letters to smell; letters to burn
Daily papers through the hole in the door
Sex and news fill the wisdom of a million minds

Time is a measure of strength quickly now
Speed is the cause of decay
Traffic is humble to fall on your knees
Pushing and pulling the tired
Little men in their cars

Wake up! Your conscience is calling !
Reality begins at nine
Wake up! Think what you’re missing
Hidden in the world of dawn

Rest your body with soothing sleep
Dream of the hours you left behind
Listen carefully for the break of day
The twilight’s near, silence brings the fantasy here

Silhouettes mingle with sky backed with smog
Ripples of morning flow by
The quietness flavours the glow
Breathe it in
Imagine the bliss that is glazing the warm face agleam

Wake up! Your conscience is calling !
Reality begins at nine
Wake up! Think what you’re missing
Hidden in the world of dawn

(Banks/Gabriel/Philips/Rutherford)

Hey, Sea Bee, fly through the waters as sadness
that pulls you away from me
Hey, Sea Bee, you’ll freeze in the wind that’s
gently blowing you away from me

Fly to me quickly
Soften your cold wings
I’ll find you comfort
You know you’re gonna fall down, down, down
‘Til you end up on the ground

You have no fun
You’re on your own
Where you flying now in the sky?
Can you cast your eyes below?

Hey, Sea Bee, raindrops are falling on the shadows
where you are so close to me
Hey, Sea Bee, the beauty I saw has been wrenched
from the sea of my sorrowing eyes

Swim home to me, now
You can just make it
I know you like it
You know you’re gonna fall down, down , down
‘Til you end up on the ground
You’re slipping now
You’re on your own

Drifting higher in the sky
Disappearing from my sight
Hey, Sea Bee, once in a while think of the friend that you left behind
Hey’ Sea Bee, I can’t forget you or the warmth that surrounded your
gentle heart

(Banks/Gabriel/Philips/Rutherford)

Flannan Isle is in the South on the Point of Kedgeree
Forty seven miles from land in the roughest part of the sea
On the finest day and the sea was black
And they say that no one has ever come back from there

They say that wicked spirits haunt the lighthouse in the night
Fears close to many men who’ve tried to start the warning light
Waves are hurled against the earthly rocks
Spray is changed at once to a wall of ice tern who wants to rest its
tired limbs
And is tumed to a flurry of snow

The island’s rocks have many caves that smell of dying flesh
They lure the strangers to their maze of never ending length
The empty cave is filied with sound a man is lying in the ground below

Each month a boat is sueked to perish by the rocky isle
Each tide is full recovered from the wreckage there
Boats that sail too near to Flannan feel the weather change and they tum away
If they dare to look behind them screams of disappointment fill the air

(Banks/Gabriel/Philipps/Rutherford)

See him digging, see him weeding
Every single day of the year

Coffee at eleven, four thirty tea
His security is built on routine

But inside his mind, there’s a lot going on
Planning the world but it just don’t do no good

I say: «What’s the use?»
Population, starvation,
his mind keeps working hard
Ending wars, changing laws
and all of them locked away

In cessation, repetition
funeral for an age of decay
Meditation, deep frustration
Caused our hairy friend to die

Here lies a man
Who failed to escape
Filled his small head with the worries
That plague the world

I say: «What’s the use?»

(Banks/Gabriel/Philips/Rutherford)

Cool as ice, yet brittle as glass
A nervous wreck with a sweet facade
You’re breaking up
You’re breaking up now, baby
You’re breaking up your life
Into little pieces
Baby

Vanity arrived with fame
How she loved to see her name
She is beautiful, very beautiful: look at her
And she’s a model

Hey girl, I love you but you won’t listen
to what I’m trying to say
Things won’t work out as you plan them now
Don’t throw your love away
Give it up, baby
Give it up and come back to me

Your look of majesty enables some to get more money
For them; you’re just a product
For me; you’re the one I love
Baby

Vanity arrived with fame
How she loved to see her name

She is beautiful; very beautiful: look at ber
And she’s a model

Hey girl, I love you but you won’t listen
to what I’m trying to say
Things won’t work out as you plan them now
Don’t throw your love away
Give it up, baby
Give it up and come back to me

Cool as ice, yet brittle as glass
A nervous wreck with a sweet facade
You’re breaking up
You’re breaking up now, baby
You’re breaking up your life
Into little pieces
Baby

Please don’t take my love away from my arms; no, no
I need her near me every single day
Please don’t take her away; I need my love…

(Banks/Gabriel/Philips/Rutherford)

If you see another staring straight at you
Take his life and change it
That’s what you always do

You’re still in the days of childhood
Where everything is wrong and no good
I can see, what you’re trying
what you’re trying to be
Let me tell you no

Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness or you love will never be found

Your pink Dalmatian out in to the street
So you laugh, but cry when it comes to bite your feet
You say it’s fun to live
where there’s always take and no give
Don’t you see that where you live
there’s a world of sin ?

Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness or you love will never be found

You always go and hide you lovin’
before it’s gone and too late
Things are changing, you’re remaining
Leave it and come with me…
Let me tell you now…

Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness baby
Try a little sadness or you love will never be found

(Banks/Gabriel/Philips/Rutherford)
