Hawkwind – Images lyrics

Brock/Davey/Wishart -)
Memories surround them
Walking through the door
Smells of dust and summer heat
Embroidering his thoughts
The seeing hand
The face of fate
The shifting scenes I can't explain
The crazy fool who screams his pain
As he tries to cheat life's final game
Whispering from the balcony
Fingers in the hall
The well worn path of alternity
Appearing here once more
It's gone now
It's gone now
Twist the soul
Turn Flesh to stone
The fear and the anger
Of the lost and alone
Endless dreams of wasted days
Slowly fade away
Laughter echoes bitterly
There's no need to stay

Music Facts about Hawkwind and "Images" song

Images meanings

  • u
    Only opinion, but I think this song is simply about dying and the flood of DMT fueled images that wash over a person as he/she goes through that. These lyrics are very close but are not exactly correct. Anyway, this song is to Hawkwind what Hotel California was to The Eagles, in my worthless opinion. The band is all about spirituality and psychedelics, tempered with a sci-fi/heroic fantasy edge. So anyway.. Space Bandits. A great first step into the 90's by a band who arrived there from the 60's by way of the space beyond the edge of time.
