The dance of the puppets
The rusted chains of prison moons
Are shattered by the sun.
I walk a road, horizons change

    children of men-he's riding to his brother(?) to get the passes in a limo through london and this is playing as he goes in and sees the broken David in the entrance hall-shocked me when i heard k.c. playing---

    Early Crimson are always lovely. Their first LP is a masterpiece only surpassed by Larks' Tongues in Aspic.

    Great Ian McDonald song, how come he did not have much input in Foreigner.
