home: genesis ยป genesis - the light dies down on broadway

Testo the light dies down on broadway - genesis

As he walks along the gorge's edge


He meets a sense of yesteryear.

A window in the bank above his head

Reveals his home amidst the streets.



Subway sounds
the sounds of complaint

The smell of acid on his gun of paint.

As it carves out anger in a blood-red band


Destroyed tomorrow by an unknown hand;

-My home.

Is this the way out from this endless scene?

Or just an entrance to another dream?

And the light dies down on Broadway.


/>
But as the skylight beckons him to leave


He hears a scream fro far below.

Within the raging water
writhes the form

Of brother John
he cries for help.



The gate is fading now
but open wide


But John is drowning
I must decide

Between the freedom I had in the rat-race


Or to stay forever in this forsaken place;

Hey John!

He makes for the river and the gate is gone


Back to the void where it came from.

And the light dies down on Broadway
