"Window" as written by Peter Gabriel, Anthony Banks, Anthony Edwin Phillips and Michael Rutherford....
Crossing the mountains of truth see them
Shadows of night disappear
Rise from the slough of despond, find the pathway
Guiding us forward through pastures of dream day
Days to enjoy, peace I knew once before me
Dawning to dusk on the hills until morning
Come see me take my hand
Come see me in my land
Flying invisibly high, watch me
All on a beautiful sky, I'll be
Clear and serene in the love I've discovered
Long search is over, the soul is uncovered
Resting on joy that abounds without ceasing
Bidding farewell to the fears now decreased
Come see me take my hand
Come see me in my land
High on a golden crested wave she sits
The little nymphs dance in her hair
The trees all beckon to the sky to bless their empty lives
Horizons come to sip wine there
The veiled mist reveals the wandering ship upon the reef
The albatross flies to the stern
And only Jack Frost saw the kiss you gave him in return
Crossing the mountains of truth see them
Soaring majestically high, and then
Stop at the warning light, see it flash brightly
Thunder awakes me, it crashes beside me
Shatter the scene and bring chaos to beauty
Leading me forward where destiny may be
Come see me take my hand
View from another land

    General CommentThis seems to follow on from "One Day" - another pastoral kind of love song. We have definitely veered from the Biblical story of mankind, unless perhaps these bits of peaceful beauty are an expression of the christ force that is the only true alternative to the wars brought about by the forces of Satan...or some such something as that, but you really have to stretch.
    In this piece, a guiding hand is mentioned again - leading one to another land. Interesting use of "Horizons come to sip wine", though the song "Horizons" on the album "Foxtrot" was written by Steve Hackett. The "veiled mist reveals the wandering ship upon the reef, the albatross flies to the stern" is evocative of the song "Seven Stones" from the album "Nursery Cryme", (as well, of course, as the Ryme of the Ancient Mariner") and here the truth seems to be the honest truth of the Mountains rather than the manufactured truth of the Truth Factories from "In Hiding".
