Eloy : Colours 1980


Eloy is a German progressive rock band, whose musical style includes symphonic and space rock, the latter theme being more prevalent on earlier albums. Despite their nationality and time period, the band is not generally considered krautrock because of their sound, which has much more in common with English progressive rock groups such as Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Yes.

Colours is the ninth album by Eloy, released in 1980.

Horizons  Lyrics



Sunbeams dancing in your mind
ceblue larks emracing sunlight....... sunlight..... sunlight
lotus of petals blistering
cool shade of wise trees listening

Dawn of light lies between silence
chased amid fusions of wonder
revealing corridors of time
pictures of redescending distance

Love colours sent within us
our endless caress for freedom

Illuminations  Lyrics



A star-spangled sky is my roof tonight,
The forests are my covers.
Moonman, the watcher, with eyes so bright,
Gives shelter like a brother.


Birds wake my mind
As dawn paints a flame coloured skies.
dream curtains undrawn,
New day of soft splendour is born.


An afternoon rainshower drawing near slowly,
Clouds hold their treasure suspended like scales.
The eagle encircles his mansioned sky boldly
Wild conversation as larks tell their tales.


Birds wake my mind
As dawn paints a flame coloured skies.
Dream curtains undrawn,
New day of soft splendour is born.

A star-spangled sky is my roof tonight,
The forests are my covers.
Moonman, the watcher, with eye so bright,
Gives shelter like a brother.


Horizon serene
A rainbow where no man has been
Love within reach
A truth with no needing of speech


Where all dreams are one
As rain meets a boundless ocean
My days here I'll spend
A life of true peace and no end

Birds wake my mind
As dawn paints a flame coloured skies.
Dream curtains undrawn,
New day of soft splendour is born.
