Man of a Thousand Faces
I'm looking to be by a window That looks out on the sea Anybody here know Where such a place is? Surf of golden sunlight Breaking over me Man of a thousand faces In the Garden paths take form But the hailstorm guards its own Things forbidden, things unknown You must travel on alone In memoriam friends come round But the hard ground holds its own Time for pulling, time to ride It's my turn but where's the guide? On the jetty shadows lie And the gulls cry once or twice Swelling thunder, truth is hid Behind the glass eye of the idol... Anybody here know Where such a place is? You know, these city towers, Jewels on the Serpent's crown, Twist the space between them Till every eye is blinded Lord will you trade your sunlit ocean With its writhing filigree For any one of my thousand faces?
