Peter Gabriel - Here Comes The Flood

When the night shows
the signals grow on radios
All the strange things
they come and go, as early warnings
Stranded starfish have no place to hide
still waiting for the swollen Easter tide
There's no point in direction we cannot
even choose a side.

I took the old track
the hollow shoulder, across the waters
On the tall cliffs
they were getting older, sons and daughters
The jaded underworld was riding high
Waves of steel hurled metal at the sky
and as the nail sunk in the cloud, the rain
was warm and soaked the crowd.

Lord, here comes the flood
We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood
If again the seas are silent
in any still alive
It'll be those who gave their island to survive
Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry.

When the flood calls
You have no home, you have no walls
In the thunder crash
You're a thousand minds, within a flash
Don't be afraid to cry at what you see
The actors gone, there's only you and me
And if we break before the dawn, they'll
use up what we used to be.

Lord, here comes the flood
We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood
If again the seas are silent
in any still alive
It'll be those who gave their island to survive
Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry.

Perfect, darlin'. Just perfect. In the early-mid-80's I lived in Blacksburg for two years not-earning my Master's degree, had a couple of classes in Norris Hall, and practically lived in my office just two buildings away. As I said in my own post about this, my mind is in a Very Strange Place right now.

Thank you.

Sometimes a piece of music can express more than words or deeds can. Thanks for posting.

Perfect song...

Once again I'm speechless about this as I knew nothing about what had gone on at VT until 6 am today when I was at the grocery store and saw it on CNN.

I grieve for all of the families and the media circus that is probably making there grieving that more difficult by being in the public eye.
