"Madrigal" as written by Rick Wakeman and Jon Anderson....
I will be there said my friend of a distant life
Covered in greens of a golden age, set in stone
Follow me, "he sounded of dreams supreme" follow me
Drifting within the glow and the after-glow of the eve

And if that firelight, I could match the inner flame

Sacred ships do sail the seventh age

Cast off your garments of fear, replace them with love
Most of all play with the game of the age
Highest of places remain all as one with you
Giving us light and the freedom of the day

And if that firelight, I could match the inner flame

Sacred ships do sail the seventh age
And have always been here

Celestial travellers have always been here with us
Set in the homes of the universe we have yet to go
Countless expansions will arrive and flow inside of us
My friend, he of fantasy, dancing with the spirit of the age

    General CommentHmm, I'm surprised this song has received little attention. It's a tricky one, and was hoping to find some ideas. Ok, here an idea.
    The reference to "seventh age" i.e. the seventh age of man, made me think perhaps the writer had a friend who has passed through the seventh age and onto what lies beyond. Possibly the writer discussed the afterlife and where one might travel were one to be free of physical limitations.

    Another interpretation could be part religious, part van daniken! He could be implying a religious figure from history (maybe Jesus!) was through his teachings imploring people to "follow" him to anotherlevel of existance, where one was free to travel to "the homes of the universe we have yet to go" - be that universe physical, or spiritual, i.e. within ourselves.

    Well, just one of many interpretations :-)
