A song about a clockmaker, trying to encapsulate into a golden round the mechanisms of the zodiac above. Perhaps inspired on some level by conversations between retired Yale Music professor Willie Ruff, and member of Starboard Quest.

Professor Ruff succeeded at transposing the mathematical measurements of the planets of our solar system while they orbited into audible tones and frequencies. See Willie Ruff discography, “Harmony of the World”.


Once upon a time, in a village far away. There lived a man who tried to bring the stars to earth each day.

He watched them as they made their way above his little town, and wished that he could place them, within the golden round.

He could see celestial spheres a shining down. Dazzling gems a sparkling in the northern crown.

He gathered wheels and pendulums, gadgets and gears that he loved. In golden round he’d reconstruct what he had seen above.

Sitting there so patiently, he labored night and day, and charted mechanisms of The zodiac to light his inventions way.

Then fluttering wings of Pegasus did give him flight. A microcosm in the golden round of the clock of lights.

It was sublime. He tried to capture time. To put it in a box and there contain it, and though he somewhat failed, his aspirations sailed. He knew that one fine day he’d rise above it.

High in the village clock tower, the north wind blew there, cold. Countless worlds through swirling snowflakes, his eyes did there behold, and he knew, that he was growing old, and that soon... he’d fly away.

One day Clock Man left his shop, and the planet green and blue. His heart just stopped ticking and then all his clocks did too.

He travelled universal Clock and rang its highest chime, and disappeared into a Mystic world, beyond the veils of time.

He stepped beyond the veil. Into the blue he sailed. To capture time he failed, but now he found, that time could not contain him.
