T. Rex

T. Rex were a British rock band, formed in 1967 by singer/songwriter and guitarist Marc Bolan. The band formed as Tyrannosaurus Rex, releasing four underground folk albums under the name. Tony Visconti (their producer for several albums) claimed in a documentary on the band that he had taken to using the abbreviated term "T. Rex" as a shorthand, something that initially irritated Bolan, who gradually came around to the idea and officially shortened the band's name to "T. Rex" at roughly the same time they started having big hits (shortly after going electric). more »

My eyes went up 
It was sunrise 
The sky turned black 
It was noon 

A ship of the silverest 
Shadowed out 
All of the moon 

A shape 
That was golden and crimson 
Extend a claw 
To my frame 

I sunk in the sand 
Like an infant 
I screamed 
But my tongue was lame 

My heart on a platter 
They`d stolen 
My eyes 
Were all fiery flame 

A sound like sweet dove 
I did stutter 
And then the ship 
Swum the skies again
