One For The Vine (2007 Digital Remaster) - Genesis

Fifty thousand men were sent to do the will of one


His claim was phrased quite simply though he never voiced it loud


I am he the chosen one


In his name they could slaughter for his name they could die


Though many there were believed in him still more were sure he lied


But they'll fight the battle on


Then one whose faith had died


Fled back up the mountainside


But before the top was made


A misplaced footfall made him stray


From the path prepared for him


Off of the mountain


On to a wilderness of ice


This unexpected vision made him stand and shake with fear


But nothing was his fright compared with those who saw him appear


Terror filled their minds with awe


Simple were the folk who lived


Upon this frozen wave


So not surprising was their thought


This is he God's chosen one


Who's come to save us from


All our oppressors


We shall be kings on this world


Follow me


I'll play the game you want me


Until I find a way back home


Follow me


I give you strength inside you


Courage to win your battles -


No no no this can't go on


This will be all that I fled from


Let me rest for a while


He walked into a valley


All alone


There he talked with water and then with the vine


They leave me no choice


I must lead them to glory or most likely to death


They traveled cross the plateau of ice up to its edge


Then they crossed a mountain range and saw the final plain


Still he urged the people on


Then on a distant slope


He observed one without hope


Flee back up the mountainside


He thought he recognised him by his walk


And by the way he fell


And by the way he


Stood up and vanished into air
