Genesis – Image Blown Out lyrics
People moving about the town upside down, you know why
Little bits of coloured glass in the sky
Children pushing mummy down to the park, in a pram
Look out the pavement's changing to jam

See them running
Now where are they going to
To follow them, leads you nowhere
Shout to them quickly but no one can hear you
All they can do is to stare

Your bowler hats are turning green
Your city suits are coloured cream
You, you who changed my life
You made it misery, sadness reins alone
Wonder why you do this, to me
When I've tried so hard for you

People talking to the man who's digging a hole, in his mind
He's no need to worry, he's deaf and blind
See the dustman doing his round in a rolls made of glass
He's gained everything because he's got class

Friends are leaving me when I did everything
Just as they used to behave
Trying to copy them, losing my real self
Floating away in a cloud

Your minds have blown you out of step
The rules you taught you never kept
You, you who changed my life
You made it misery, sadness reins alone
Wonder why you do this, to me
When I've tried so hard for you
