Annotationen

Eine Geistergeschichte: Neue Mieter ziehen in eine Haus, das von Geistern aus der Vergangenheit okkupiert ist. Der Titel wird auf dem Album gefolgt von Second Home by the Sea, einem weitgehend instrumentalen Stück. Auch bei Konzerten wurden die beiden Stücke stets hintereinander gespielt. Mit der summierten Zeit von über 11 Minuten steht der gesamte Track tief in der Prog-Tradition.

Lyrics

Creeping up the blind side, shinning up the wall Stealing thru the dark of night Climbing thru a window, stepping to the floor Checking to the left and the right Picking up the pieces, putting them away Something doesn't feel quite right Help me someone, let me out of here Then out of the dark was suddenly heard Welcome to the Home by the Sea Coming out the woodwork, thru the open door Pushing from above and below Shadows but no substance, in the shape of men Round and down and sideways they go Adrift without direction, eyes that hold despair Then as one they sigh and they moan Help us someone, let us out of here Living here so long undisturbed Dreaming of the time we were free So many years ago Before the time when we first heard Welcome to the Home by the Sea Sit down Sit down As we relive our lives in what we tell you Images of sorrow, pictures of delight Things that go to make up a life Endless days of summer longer nights of gloom Waiting for the morning light Scenes of unimportance, photos in a frame Things that go to make up a life Help us someone, let us out of here Cos living here so long undisturbed Dreaming of the time we were free So many years ago Before the time when we first heard Welcome to the Home by the Sea Sit down Sit down As we relive our lives in what we tell you Let us relive our lives in what we tell you Sit down Sit down Cos you won't get away No with us you will stay For the rest of your days - Sit down As we relive our lives in what we tell you Let us relive our lives in what we tell you
