Looking out the window
I see the red dust clear
High up on the red rock
Stands the shadow with the spear

  • I hadn't heard this one till right now. I'm so embarrassed! Neat song.
  • Absolutely phenomenal.
  • reminds me of kate bush's "the dreaming" (both enamored with the fairlight)
  • Why has Peter not worked with Mickey Hart yet? They both do percussion oriented work, they both work with international musicians in an attempt to preserve world music...
  • People always get confused when I play this song, guess they're not used to good music
  • The ultimate rhythm track. It builds from an opening beat that totally takes you over & coupled with excellent lyrics, this is Gabriel at his best.
  • Perfect from start to finish. The building rhythm in this is absolutely overwhelming.

  • The rhythm shift between the main song and the outro's beginning, coupled with the tense ambience and Gabriel's wailing to the end of his breath, is still giving me goose bumps to this day!
