13. Roger Hodgson -of Supertramp

Even in the Quietest Moments... (1977)

Fool's Overture






[Churchill's famous speech]
"We shall go on 'til the end,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans.
We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be.
We shall never surrender."

History recalls how great the fall can be
While everybody's sleeping
The boats put out to sea
Borne on the wings of time
It seemed the answers were so easy to find

"Too late," the prophets cry
The island's sinking, let's take to the sky
Called the man a fool
Stripped him of his pride
Everyone was laughing
Up until the day he died

Oh, though the wound went deep
Still he's calling us out of our sleep
My friends, we're not alone
He waits in silence to lead us all home

So you tell me that you find it hard to grow
Well I know, I know, I know
And you tell me that you've many seeds to sow
Well I know, I know, I know

[Distant choir sings William Blake's 'Jerusalem']
"And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On England's pleasant pastures seen!"

Dreamer...

Can you hear what I'm saying?
Can you see the parts that I'm playing?
Holy Man, Rocker Man, come on Queenie,
Joker Man, Spider Man, Blue Eyed Meanie
So you found your solution
What will be your last contribution?
Live it up, rip it up, why so lazy?
Give it out, dish it out, let's go crazy, yeah
