"Amazona" as written by Phil Manzanera and Bryan Ferry....
Amazona is a zone where
There is no doubt
No more fall-out

Why don't you
Step through the mirror
And see?

From Arizona
To El Dorado
Sure is a mighty long way

Hey little girl, is something wrong?
I know it's hard for you to get along
The bell-tower rings, it tolls a hollow sound
But your castles in Spain still may be realized
And longings more profound
You see, every cloud has a silver lining
And sometimes paradise around your corner lies
In Amazona, everything is nice
Little one, come take my hand
I'll try to help you there
And take you there

Amazona's
Getting closer
Soon you'll see

Journey's over
We're almost
There!

    General CommentBryan Ferry had some notoriety as ladies man, all of the cover models for Roxy Music's albumns were supermodels in thier day. The song seems to be a play on words on Amazon and Arizona, however it's a state of mind where self-confidence reigns over vanity.

    I think...

    My InterpretationAMAZONA:

    a contact high/razor-sharp songlines glittering in a mirror/a state of fluid associations/roaming the arid zones of the Western U.S./Ubermensch meets Supermodel in absolute freedom/The Golden One ever sought,never found/indigenous daughter of the New World/savage grace compliments Old World charm/the longest river through the deepest jungle/Zarathustra's bride waiting in a Tucson honky-tonk/road trip in a Cadillac on Heaven's golden highways/a face you once saw hitch-hiking/the geometric perfections of the Alhambra/the Moorish Madonna veiled in American mystery

    [Ride, boldly ride, the shade replied, if you seek for El Dorado...]

    General CommentThe distorted guitar in this song pushes the limit right up to near pain and cacophony.
