fireside song lyrics – genesis

as daybreak breaks the mist upon the earth
it came to p*ss that beauty settled there forever more
and as the steam clings close to things to come
it came to p*ss that solid rock did part for humble life

once upon a time there was confusion
disappointment, fear and disillusion
now there’s hope reborn with every morning
see the future clearly at its dawning
forever drifting slowly towards a hazy emptiness
whilst water slips into the sea
the father’s sad to see it’s free

as shadows creep towards their master night
it came to p*ss that trees defied the wind who shook their leaves
and as the peace descended all around
it came to p*ss that nature’s creatures came to face the world

once upon a time there was confusion
disappointment, fear and disillusion
now there’s hope reborn with every morning
see the future clearly at its dawning
forever drifting slowly towards a hazy emptiness
whilst water slips into the sea
the father’s sad to see it’s free

once upon a time there was confusion
disappointment, fear and disillusion
now there’s hope reborn with every morning
see the future clearly at its dawning

once upon a time there was confusion
disappointment, fear and disillusion
