“Dog baiter, agitator, asking questions, says he wants to know why.”

Challenging or utterly ridiculous? The short answer is both, and we love ’em for it!

I’m quite happy to digest the weird and wonderful world of the Lamb, interpreting lyrics of the ‘Carpet Crawlers’ or feeling panic from ‘In the Cage’. While at the next moment being angry at the world during ‘Land of Confusion’ and contemplating political cause and effect of the ‘Domino’.

Genesis lyrics: Painting vivid pictures but leaving much of the interpretation up to the listener.



“Pythagoras with the looking glass reflects the full moon,
In blood, he’s writing the lyrics of a brand new tune.”



Genesis originally toyed with the idea of creating a side-long suite during the recording of the album “Duke”. Not wanting to draw comparisons to Supper’s Ready, the band decided to split up the suite and disperse the songs throughout the album.

The order would have been Behind the Lines, Duchess, Guide Vocal, Turn It On Again, Duke’s Travels, Duke’s End.

Powerful themes

Intense lyrics

Fun songs

What more could you ask for?


“And you know that these are the days of our lives Remember”
