Brian Eno Predicts the Future-Again.

Through a fault of our designing We are lost among the windings of these Metal Ways. Back to silence back to minus with the purple sky behind us In these metal ways. Nobody hears us when we’re alone in the blue future. No one receiving the radio’s splintered ways. In these metal ways, in these metal days.


  1. What I find interesting about Eno's lyrics is that he has insisted he writes them more for how they sound and compliment the music than for their literal meaning. I agree with you that he's a sort of oracle - with words and music.

  2. Hi Kristen! Yes, Eno may not intend his lyrical predictions but he can't help being an oracle. Thanks for your awesome comment.
