We're waiting for you
Come and join us now
We need you with us
Come and join us now

Look inside your mind
See the darkness is creeping out
I can see in the softness there
Where the sunshine is gliding in
Fill your mind with love
Find the world of future glory

You can meet yourself
Where the sour turns to sweet
Leave your ugly selfish shell
To melt in the glowing flames
Can you sense the change?
See your eyes, now listen

We're waiting for you
Come and join us now
We want you with us
Come and join us now

Paint your face all white
To show the peace inside
Drift away while the saffron burns
To the land where the rainbow ends
Can you sense the change?
See your eyes in focus

We're waiting for you
Come and join us now
We need you with us
Come and join us now

We're waiting for you
Come and join us now
We need you with us
Come and join us now

We want you with us
Come and join us now
We need you with us
Come and join us now

    General CommentThe group indicated in this piece seem to be living in some kind of better world of "future glory". The sunshine (many prog lyrics seem to be rather heliocentric) apparently can burn away the selfish shell of darkness creeping from people's minds. People in this place paint their faces white to indicate they are at peace within. Peter Gabriel would later do a lot of white-face painting with his stage characterizations. (Quite a few "goths" do as well these days...) People have better focus in this place. Where ever this place is, they sure seem to need you and want you to join them there...
