They're loading up the ships
They're loading the planes
There's madness in the sky
Above the bones of saints

Some like to see it broken
The servants of a lie
Now everything is burning
There's a fire up in the sky

I said no no no, no no no, no no no


They come against the bench
Where all the walls fall down
I hear the children scream
But then the fear abound

There's a leading the question
Where all the money comes
Say who makes the bullets
Tell me, who sells the guns?

I said no no no, no no no, no no no
No no no, no no no, no no no

You gotta believe in
And the news goes around and around
Son of the ages
Where the best way deals come down

You gotta believe in
And the news goes around and around
Son of the ages
Where the best way deals come down

No no no, no no no, no no no
No no no, no no no, no no no
No no no, no no no, no no no

ya... those lyrics are deep and pretty plain to read...  although I heard something different in the music... in my ears... for sure he whimsperred 'Garden of Eden'...  perhaps slipped in behind the chorus "You gotta believe in..."   I will have to get out the CD and listen to that track to know for sure... but I'm betting on it.  God Wins in my mind... ya gotta believe.  :) 
I really don't like this song, and I feel like it gets played *a lot* on RP? Or maybe I just notice it because I don't care for it? C'est la vie.

But, really, she didn't look a day over 500.

What is all this carping and kvetching about RP's appearance? HE CAN LOOK ANY WAY HE DAMN WELL PLEASES. In my inconsequential opinion we are not fit to crawl up and touch the hem of his tattered bluejeans. 
 
This is a fantastic album from a God of Rock-n'-roll. You have to hear this album as a piece of work.  As an *album* - Wow, what  concept.  Yes, I'm saying BOW DOWN, mortal!  These large concepts may overload someone's little A.D.D - addled brain that's been scrambled from jumping from one cut to another on their distorted, crappy little iPod, constantly seeking something that suits their distorted, crappy little mood better, complaining constantly  and never actually LISTENING to any music. Just thinkin'  out loud... 
 
YES!!  What he said!
probably the same people that made you rich😎

We saw him in San Diego a few months ago and HE IS THE ROCK N’ROLL GOD. 

His musicians were fantastic. His voice meaty and powerful. He may look old and his torso might now be flabby but when he swung that mike and began to growl it was like a lion at feeding time. His arms and legs are lithe and powerful and the musical variety was staggeringly great. His Led Zep songs were so close to the originals that I could hardly believe it came from a man about my age. I would go again any time the opportunity arises. 
 

He is so f***ing great!
Glad he's made it so far!

I don't agree, but this really made me laugh.

In case you were wondering who the guitarist is (I was sure I had heard that tone and touch elsewhere) it's Justin Adams, who's played with Rachid Taha among others.

 
Who and who?

Almost an occasional touch of past glory...........almost.

Saw him last night on BBC2  "Later wirh Jools Holland", oh dear this man has not aged well.
I'm 75 and in '75 this man was almost godlike (in the film Song Remains the same). Now I look in the mirror and see an old man, and accept the fact - Mr Plant needs to do the same, sort that hair out!

As to his latest offerings - well if it wasn't him I'd not give the music a second hearing, very mediocre. Now - Raising Sand with Krauss is another matter! Truly good stuff.
Not that bad a song, but way overplayed...IMHO

Youth or songs?

He could have chosen any album cover or portrait by any photographer but he must have wanted one that shows his age.

I could have taken a photograph of him in a kinder light that did not show up his age - you know the sort of thing Hollywood actresses have been doing for years but obviously he does not want that.

Each to their own but I would like to look a few years younger myself :)

I haven't thought about Bones Boy in a long time.  I wonder what Oogie's up to these days.

Funny, Plant looks more like Ian Anderson... than Ian Anderson.
