      About "The Idol"

      Lyrics for Procol Harum - "The Idol"

      Oh the idol, Oh the idol

      They knew the monster's every trick
      They knew his secrets every stitch
      All of it had been a game
      Nothing but a charlatan
      Perhaps there was a chance of coming through
      It even seemed that he might think it too
      But he could see no point in diving in
      He knew that he would neither sink nor swim

      And so they found he'd nothing left to say
      Just another idol turned to clay

      It seemed to them he must know what to do
      They knew that only he could pull them through
      They thought that he would make a plan
      He'd work it out, he'd understand
      Like drowning men they clutched at every straw
      They knew that he had saved them all before
      But he could see no point in diving in
      He knew that he would neither sink nor swim
