        I like this interpretation, but I've always seen this as a much
later song in the cycle. It seems to me that the character singing is
Imaginos in his Del Rio character, and the song deals with how his eyes
were opened by Les Invisibles. And isn't Haiti referred to as the world's
axis in the _Imaginos_ sleeve notes?

        Somewhere I believe there is (it's probably in the FAQ, it always
is when I can't be bothered to go and look :-) a list of the full Imaginos
cycle in the correct order. Is WoTT so close to the beginning? Just
curious; your theory is much better thought out than mine, but I somehow
feel that Elizabeth and Drake have very little to do with the cycle - both
are only implied by John Dee on the original album and he is, it seems to
me, only mentioned to give `pedigree' to the use of the black jade
mirror. Convince me :-) Yours,
