[ Song of the Week ] Genesis – “Heathaze”

from the album Duke (1980)

This song written by Tony Banks contains some of my favorite Genesis lyrics with their symbolism:

“Beware the fisherman who’s casting out his line
into a dried up riverbed,
but don’t try to tell him ‘cos he won’t believe you.
Throw some bread to the ducks instead,
it’s easier that way.”
