The king of dark-arts has been stashing his cash
He’s got to make sure it’s all good
His investments are strong and protected
They’d take it away if they could.
It’s all in a bank in a sunny location
It’s making him more than the rate of inflation
Accruing and doing a capital job
Away from the gaze of the desperate mob
There’s a body face down in the moat that he built
Cushioned and still in the weed and the silt
The circling carp are preparing to feast
On the eyes and the brains of the lately deceased
The king of dark-arts was condolent and bland
When they dredged up the corpse from his slough
He offered the family the use of his crane
And asked them what they would do now
Who banged on the gates that were fastened and locked
Who looked at the tower as the hammer was cocked
Who pictured the days full of hope and desire
Who squeezed and fell headlong to sleep in the mire
Clean up the body and borrow the cash
To convert it from fishfood to silvery ash
And scatter our hopes on your closely mown banks
Tipping our caps in a gesture of thanks.
For the drip of the tap that you’ve tightened as hard
As the strings of your heart that you keep under guard
With the lights you could shine down on so many lives
That you’ve chosen to sell with the guns and the knives.
The king of dark-arts has been weighing it up
Satisfied that the poor pose no threat
And he closes the windows and returns to the fray....

The first official outing of the "what would be" Steve Rothery Band. Riccardo Romano was missing with his keyboard wizardry and no singer at all (later Martin Jakubsky of Stillmarillion). Marillion's catalogue was represented by excerpts of instrumental sections where Steve had his solo spot. This is a milestone in the forming of a great band that later became the spokesman of early Marillion era and of course of Steve's solo material. If you want to hear how it all started you have to get this Alessandro Carmassi
