Dancing
Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive

Ah, close call between Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and Cinema Show, but the former gets it by a hair. I prefer the latter musically, but both are superb in all aspects!

There's a fat old lady outside the saloon; laying out the credit cards she plays Fortune. The deck is uneven right from the start; and all of their hands are playing apart.
When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.

Cinema Show has the best non-Gabriel lyric in all of Genesis. These 3 lines are sublime.

Once a Man, like the Sea I raged
Once a Woman, like the Earth I gave
But if there is in fact, more Earth than Sea

Well being a fan for a long time...some books (I have Book of revelations, The book of Genesis and others), interviews, magazines, dvds, etc, and of course internet. By the way, about the lyrics a big part you can find here

Firth of Fifth seems quite meaningless to me - what are "undinal songs" anyway?

Epping Forest is quite amusing, I'm going to be different and go for Aisle of Plenty for its puns on UK supermarkets, which I suspect may fall on some deaf ears nowadays,
