Exactly what it sounds like. What current prog rock (any album that's on PA qualifies here) song/lyrics are presently stuck in your head?

Mine's currently a ton of Beefheart (obviously) stuff. Most notable, Space Age Couple.



"Hold a drinking glass up t' your eye after you've
Scooped up a little of the sky
'N it ain't blue no more.
What's on the leaves ain't dew no more."

GO!

Lyric-wise it's probably the chorus of 360 Degrees from the new Pendragon album.
 
Tune-wise I have something in my head that another track on the album reminded of and I can't for the life of me work out what it is.

Flash Gordon's Ape is stuck in my head, particularly this portion:

"Pull back the adhesive tape
You're in ah scrape
Take to to your trees
There's no escape
The leaves are gettin' faker everyday
Flash Gordon's ape
Your too day"

For months I've had various Genesis lyrics stuck in my head, on an endless loop..
Supper's ready, Colony of Slippermen, Anyway, Visions of Angels, etc.

The tune I've had stuck in my head lately is, 'The Mathematicians Air Display' by Pekka Pohjola. So catchy.

I use this line often when 'arguing' with people...as a sort of jokey comeback..so it's often in my head:
Heh there brother...who you jivin with that Cosmik Debris?'

That's all I could ever make out in the first part

You can choose a ready guide
In some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide
You still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears
And kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose free will

The Knife

I constantly hear ' Some of you are going to die , martyrs of course to the freedom I shall provide'

Mind you I also hear the words of Invisible Touch going round and round. I'm not sure which is more worrying!

I always have the last part/coda of The Sleepwalkers by VDGG in my head; 
Tonight, before you lay down to the sweetness of your sleep
Do you question your surrender to the drop from Lover's Leap
Or does the anesthetic darkness take hold on its very own?
Does your body rise in service with not one dissenting groan?
Lying on the hill; crawling over the windowsill into your living room...

Seven Steps to the Green Door - Salvation

The song in its entirety, and the lyrics all the way through, especially the delivery on the "must save... me" chorus just seems to keep me coming back for more...

I need YOUR light
everlasting
keeping my life pure
I always trust
in YOUR loving
for me
I hold The Book
that YOU gave us
full of YOUR words
there to save us
O Lord, I pray
for YOUR loving-
I know I paid
for YOUR loving-
a lifelong fight
for YOUR loving…
my end of days
it is coming
raise me in light
show YOUR loving-
bathed in the light
of YOUR loving
I paid the price
for YOUR loving…
will give my life
for YOUR loving-

must save…
...me

"Can you tell me where my country lies?"
Said the uni faun to his true love's eyes
"It lies with me!" cried the Queen of Maybe
For her merchandise, he traded in his prize
"Paper late!" cried a voice in the crowd
"Old man dies!" The note he left was signed 'Old Father Thames'
It seems he's drowned
Selling england by the pound

Singing this out loud as I wash my hands every single time - takes about the required 20 seconds.
