GENESIS : DUSK [TRESSPASS, 1970]

Δίπλα στα μίνι συμφωνικά τους έπη, οι Genesis δεν παρέλειπαν να γράφουν τραγούδια σπάνιας ομορφιάς όπως αυτό από το δεύτερό τους άλμπουμ, Tresspass του 1970. Η μελωδία, η ερασιτεχνική δροσιά του ήχου, το “εναλλακτικό” θρησκευτικό συναίσθημα, η ωριμότητα του 20χρονου μόλις Gabriel… τα πάντα είναι τέλεια σ΄αυτό το τραγούδι.

Next to their mini-symphonic epics, Genesis never failed to write songs of rare beauty, like this one from their second album, 1970’s Tresspass. The melody, the quality of the sound, the “alternative” religious feeling, the vocal / interpretive maturity of a 20-year-old Gabriel… everything about this song is perfect.


See my hand is moving
Touching all that’s real
And once it stroke the love’s body
Now it claws the past The scent of a flower,
The colors of the morning,
Friends to believe in,
Tears soon forgotten,
See how the rain drives away, another dayIf a leaf has fallen
Does the tree lie broken?
And if we draw some water
Does the well run dry?The sigh of a mother,
The screaming of lovers,
Like two angry tigers,
They tear at each other
See how for him lifetime’s fears disappearOnce a Jesus suffered,
Heaven could not see him.
And now my ship is sinking,
The captain stands alone.A pawn on the chessboard,
A false move by God will now destroy me,
But wait, on the horizon,
A new dawn seems to be rising,
Never to recall this passerby, born to die.
