Genesis - Fifth Of Fifth lyrics

The path is clear
Though no eyes can see
The course laid down
Long before

And so with gods and men
The sheep remain
Inside their pen
Though many times
They've seen the way to leave

He rides majestic
Past homes of men
Who care not
Or gaze with joy

To see reflected there
The trees, the sky
The lily fair
The scene of death
Is lying just below

The mountain cuts off
The town from view
Like a cancer growth
Is removed by skill
Let it be revealed

A waterfall
His madrigal
An inland sea
His symphony

Undinal songs
Urge the sailors on
'Till lured by the siren's cry...

Now as the river
Dissolves in sea
So Neptune
Has claimed another soul

And so with gods and men
The sheep remain inside their pen
Until the shepherd
Leads his flock away

The sands of time
Were eroded by
The river
Of constant change
