I know we all rate Fish as one of the greatest poetic lyricists. Obviously not biased at all, but the man’s a genius! - So many great songs over the years, but rather than entire sets of lyrics, which are those passages that hold a special significance for you? The memorable lines? The poetic images?..
I want to start the thread with one of my favourite lines from any Fish/Marillion track. One that really does paint such a clear and vivid picture in my mind…
‘Strung out, below a necklace of carnival lights. Cold moan, held on the crest of the night’
…I just love that. Perfect scene-setting right there.
