Genesis: Trespass (1970) - Dusk




See my hand is trembling
touching all that's real
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 has fallen,
does the tree lie broken?
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
Once Jesus suffered,
Heaven could not see him.
Now my ship is sinking,
The captain stands alone.
A pawn on the 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.
