It’s hard to pick a favorite lyric but I’ll have to start with one of my favorite books as a kid, or in this case epic poems; i.e., Homer’s Odyssey. When Cream came out with Tales Of Brave Ulysses, I was hooked. Lyrics by Martin Sharp:

And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips

And you see a girl's brown body dancing through the turquoise
And her footprints make you follow where the sky loves the sea
And when your fingers find her, she drowns you in her body
Carving deep blue ripples in the tissues of your mind

Not to mention: tiny purple fishes run laughing through your fingers.

Charles
