Artist: Peter Hammill
Song Title: Rock and Role
Watch for the silent moments, only waiting to be saved
Wait for the lie maker, he comes again
And sinks his barbs through honesty
Roll him over with all possible speed
Don't let him touch you with the candle of his need
Or let him be, hysterically ravaging your grave
You are emotion picture, re-run at single frame
You are the instant playback, no chance to change
Smile and smile, living diary!
Roll you over before it's too late

Before you're exposed to the monochrome phase
Which can relate only fear and hate through the haze
I am the automated arrow, homing on the heat of pain
I am the Peacebringer, it is so strange
I feed on grief and grieve through joy
So roll me over and turn aside
Don't let me look into the mirror of your eyes
For fear that I
May steel the life
You gradly gave
